    Well, likely biggest challenge of Casey's young career on Saturday. His 5th straight start.....and Mainz has played well enough.....but can they (1) score and (2) play well in the lion's den?

    Weiland (basically, the 'competition' for Casey and Auer at the forward spot) is healthy again, and basically WAS the starter that Casey replaced. However, over the last 5 games (according to reports) Casey has outplayed Auer. So Auer maybe on shakier ground, but I reckon Conor has to continue to shine vis-a-vis Auer to keep the spot.

    So, a lot on the table here for Mainz and Casey. Respect + Casey could use a goal along with good performance to solidify his starting spot.

    They started bats out of hell against Wolfsburg. We'll see this time....

    As a footnote to how good Bayern Munich have been at home this year:

    7 BL home games
    5 wins, 1 tie, and 1 loss
    13 GF, 4 GA

    * They have NOT let up more than one goal in any game this season!

    * They have only let up ONE GOAL in their last 3 games....

    Clearly, quite a challenge for Mainz. In Europe and in the BL, Bayern has been hitting their stride at home....If Mainz can score 2 goals, and/or get a point (or 3!), that would be major accomplishment (offensive accomplishment) IMO

    Its on the radio at bundesliga.de, but I've got to step out in a few minutes, and can't do PBP..

    BTW- in the first 10 minutes, Mainz coming out in their aggressive fashion and getting a couple shot on goal...controlling play. But against Bayern, the only thing that counts is goals. You can dominate them 89 minutes, and they can still score (never get too down). Here's hoping for an early mainz goal...

    Uh oh, 1-0 Bayern in the 14' on the first chance of the game....Mainz going to need a miracle...Klopp upset, claiming a 'clear' offside

    2-0. 35'. Game over. Typical Bayern. Let the other team do what they want. We (Bayern) just score goals and win games.

    Hopefully Casey can pull one back for the scoresheet. The miracle needed just got bigger (remember, Bayern has not let up more than 1 home goal in any game this year)...

    No mention of Casey on the Bunderliga ticker yet...

    Almost halftime, Bayern was mentioned at the '41 mark as: "Not really did anything except for the 2 goals...not championship team display...except for the 2 goals"...

    That's all that counts, eh?

    And Makaay with a 3rd at the 45'....ouch.....welcome to big leagues, Mainz..

    Makaay makes it 3 before the half.

    The game ended 4-2. Casey came off in the 77th and both goals coming after he came off. Goals for Weber and Babatz.

    Hopefully Conor keeps his starting spot, and can have a great game next week...to create a little momentum for himself going into the Winterbreak (only one more game after this Saturday)

    4.5 is mediocre in the German system, right?

    squig,

    they're not. It's a bug in BigSoccer.

    Thanks. Well, the rating is from 1 to 6, 1 being the best. with a 4 in school you still pass, a 4- though is a failure. So that is not a good rating for him.

    Maybe it's just me, but a system that has two different levels of failure seems weird.

    Leave it to the Germans to want to be that precise about things.

    Well, I guess the system started in school, so... I'm not going to explain our whole school system, but we have much more classes than in the US and you take the same classes every year (every year you have math and history and german and english and so on). You have every class with the same ppl (except Religion and maybe sports), and if you fail one class you don't have to repeat it, but if you fail three classes with 5s or one with a 6 you have to redo the whole year.
    Kicker just copied that...
    and from class 11 on we have 15 different grades and from 0 to 4 you fail, so... ;-)
