    yep, I set the bar pretty high for the upcoming season! First news item; Kiwi NT captain Ali Riley joins Bayern Munich, click on to the vid, Ali talks about her transfer(hmm.......for a New Zealander, she does sport a rather American accent!)

    Ali played in the States for ten plus years, so makes sense that she has an Americanized accent. We often develop our accents when we're quite young as well which might have contributed. I can't wait to see her at Bayern, hopefully I'll be able to catch some games!

    An away friendly today for Bayern at Arsenal, it's super cool :confused:

    Bayern gegen Arsenal: „Super Testspiel in einem sehr coolen Stadion“

    There's a crushing heatwave there, but anyway. A longer preview is on the Arseblog. Bayern's played twice so far in the preseason, with PSG coming up, another possible UWCL opponent. And the Bayern U35 team are the champions of their U35 league, that's the Über-35 league, it's very confusing

    final score; Bayern Munich 1, Arsenal 0

    can't find highlights but except for Leupolz spectacular header, not much else was happening. BM did have the advantage that they looked more advanced in preparation since their season starts in only 3 weeks, compared to Arsenal's a month later. Plus Arsenal were missing their main English & Dutch stars(who were on "extended break"). BM was clinical in it's passing, but just like last season, had a weak finishing touch. They had a strong high press, but once they got the turnover, they prefered it to kick back to the wings, instead of the fast break.
    BM has another friendly scheduled on August 6th against the powerful PSG(featuring newbie, Sarah Dabritz). Hopefully that game will be streamlined & a bit more action(less passing, lol)

    in the meantime. Wolfsburg won a 3-2 friendly v Slavia Prague. They started all their new players, except for the injured Rolfo/ More info below(need google translater)

    Anja Mittag is back in Germany at RB Leipzig Corp (who play at level 3, the regional leagues). Her team beat the level-2 club Cloppenburg in the DFB Cup 1st round.

    It ended 4-2 at the Cottaweg stadium -- see DFB Cup highlights video 1 (that game @2.00 mins) and others in video 2.

    here's the full game of Wolfsburg's rather easy, friendly win over English champs, Arsenal


    in other news, Caro Simon moves to Bayern Munich after a season stint at Lyon

    the new season starts this weekend, but I noticed the DBF hasn't posted it's game of the week. This would be an end of an era for me as I've watched those game regularly over the last 6 years. If there's anywhere else to watch streamlined Buli games, let me know.

    WOW Hoffenheim is using the best of both world's; precise German/BMW passing with a very, very hurried/frentic pace aka American style, to blow out the more heralded, Essen. Can you believe it? not a sinlge Hoff player is on the NT!

    Hoffenheim does it again; clobbers a more heralded Freiburg, 5-1! With 4 goals is winger, Tabea Wassmuth(sorry, can't double the S on my pc). From trying to find some info about her(as she seemed to go have gone under the radar) she's just graduated from the University of Manheim. So now that she got college out the way, will she become the next super star of woso?
    highlights(Wassmuth is #28)
    Highlights: SC Freiburg vs. TSG Hoffenheim

    Hoff's real baptism of fire will come next week as they take on Bayern Munich

    and they did it!, Hoffenheim has just defeated Bayern Munich, 1-0, to take 2nd place in the standings. The game was apparently shwon on German TV but I can't find a full game replay, but here's highlights. BM dominated play, got if give heads up to HF's GK for making some great saves, and obviously a lucky, own goal by BM helped them, but even with a tie, HF would of stayed in 2nd place in league standings with BM still got Wolfsburg to play

    at least Hoffenheim's meteoric rise is getting noticed as they were again featured in the game of the week, this time vs Bayer Leverkusen(full game below). Not the blowout that Hoff's previously had but still, their fast paced offence was able to produce over 30 shots. As mentioned several stars's-in-waiting & obviously NT coach, MVT has noticed as she placed 3(Rall, Wassmuth & Hardick) of them on her squad at the last open window, but then decided not to give them any playing time, even vs easy Greece.
    Some of the reasons why;

    with a major tourney still nearly 2 years away, maybe MVT doesn't want to spring them on the world too fast?(but then she's keeps starting her cubs, Buhl & Oberdorf)

    Can MVT teach her complex, plodding stye to the 'run n gun' Hoff players?

    is Hoff's success based more on just how weak the league's gotten?(though why isn't Munich blowing opponents away?)

    here's highlights of what was probably the most anticipated matchup for the week


    despite starting four of MVT's faves, Essen still got whipped, 1-5. Wolfsburg remains unbeaten in 8 games, and that's despite several of their main players on the injury list. Looking at the lineups, missing or not playing; Huth, Popp, Shulze, Minde, Doorsoun
    Wolfsburg vs. SGS Essen - 26 October 2019 - Women Soccerway
    they'll be looking to play back to back games with Bayern Munich in mid Nov(both league & cup matchup) plus pretty much a sure thing this Wwednesday in CL action vs FC Twente(6-0 lead)

    PS just based on the highlights, nice to see both teams play a faster transition type style than technical minded as that's where woso seems to be more heading( though it will probably irk the more puritan type fans)
