    "Sounds" like a well-placed shot off the post?

    TOOOOOR durch Cherundolo...Yeahh! Klasse! Über Tarnat von links eingeleitet kommt der Ball zu Krupnikovic...der spielt rechts in den Strafraum zu Cherundolo...der knallt aufs lange Eck, Pieckenhagen zwar noch dran, aber er lenkt den Ball nur an den Pfosten...von da geht die Murmel in die Maschen...was für ein geiler Beginn!!!

    I think it's a well-placed shot that the goalkeeper was only able to touch and it still went in.

    "Goal from Cherundolo. Yeah! Classy! Over Tarnat from left, the ball came to Kruppi, he played the ball to the right in the penalty area to Cherundolo. He bangs it to the far corner, Pieckenhage was there, but he just pushed the ball to the post, then the crowd is hushed. What a great beginning!

    0-2, Stendel.

    Mathis may not like him, but Lienen has this team on a roll.

    A lot of us are disappointed that Mathis hasn't contributed but Steve Cherundolo seems to really be having an excellent season.

    And what a great season, so far, for Hannover.

    Is Stevie ahead of Mathis in goalscoring?

    Well Cherundolo has done well in the Bundesliga, but has yet to prove he could do it against MLS quality teams.

    Why doesn't Lienen just trade Mathis for a player he can use? It seems like a waste of roster space and salary.

    Well... in European Football... it's not normal to "trade" players, but rather sell the ones you dont want, then buy who you do want (or pocket the money).

    Signs appear that Clint will indeed be sold when the transfer window opens in January. Until then, there is no way to sell him off.

    Will Mathis notice the connection that conditioning and respect for the coach has with winning?

    Bruce probably doesn't like Stevie because of his lack of height and how that hurts our defense on set pieces. But hey, being a star in BL-1 is something amazing for an American. Stevie should get another look-see soon, I hope.

    Stevie certainly is at the top of his game with Lienen. Amazing how Lienen's discipline has such opposite effects on Stevie and on Cleetus. Stevie conforms and does extremely well, while Cleetus rebels and gets ostracised.

    Couple quick things.
    The height isn't really an issue... Frankie Hejduk is only about 5'8".
    Also, if you're big enough to defend in the Bundesliga, you should be big enough just about anywhere.

    Also, while Steve is definitely playing well under Lienen, it's not exactly new. Steve has been a very good defender for Hannover for years, and has worn the captains armband for both Lienen and he predecessor (name escapes me at the moment)

    But I agree with your thoughts that Steve is doing very well right now, and has worked himself into Lienen's style of play.

    But Stevie was taking a lot of abuse for the struggles under the previous guy -- and I'm pretty sure he himself said he was clueless about defending when he first came over and has made a lot of strides. He's been a decent player - but I'm not sure I'd say very good defender for years.

    Fair enough. Steve's been there since January of 1999 (if I read the Hannover site correctly) and for the most part he's been a regular starter and contributor over those 5 years (wow he's been there 5 years).

    So while he may be "better" now and really showing well under the current system, I guess I was thinking he was never really a problem in defense and always well liked in Hannover... by coaches and fans.

    When's Frankie going to prove it in MLS?


    BTW - Thank you for understanding my evil black heart so well.
