    That’s quite a mix today.

    Steven Cherundolo: in the course of the Simak debate (out indefinitely with exhaustion syndrome), kicker asked him the Hannover question of the week: “Everybody’s talking about Jan Simak – do you fear that all the unrest causes lacking concentration within the team?”. Answer: “When did we ever have rest? We are hoping on Jan’s return, but we are pros and have to get it out of our heads during training and game.”

    Tom Dooley passed the exams for the German “soccer-teacher-licence” that enables him to become head coach in any pro team.

    Conor Casey still suffers under knee problems and could not train at the beginning of the week. Against Cottbus he will be on the bench at best.

    Pellegrino Matarazzo had luck: they feared a torn ACL, but it just proved to be a minor ligament injury that causes further two weeks break ‘only’.

    Eric Lukin resumed build-up training after a muscular injury in the kidney region

    Not quite fitting here, but Bundesliga/USA related: Meanwhile the euphoria about the surprisingly first ranked VfB Stuttgart is making it over the big pond. The US channel Fox TV covered the game at 1860 live on Saturday. Very much for the pleasure of ex-VfB-star Jürgen Klinsmann, who got up at 6 a.m. in his Californian home-of-choice to watch his ‘heirs’. Afterwards he sent home congratulations: “There was really growing something, I am amazed.”

    Stuttgart-ManU [R]

    Thanks for the updates, Olaf.

    Guess Stuttgart answered the question of whether they are for real this year with the win over ManU yesterday...

    T. Dooley

    Glad to see the news about Dooley. Always seemed to be one of the good guys - I hope some doors open up for him.
