I thought this time around I’d give the pre-match show a post of it’s own, it’s not everyday that Klinsi comes to town after all. Plus there’s quite a few more good pictures than usual and I thought they deserved their own post. The video contains not only the pre-match show but also some footage of Jogi and Klinsi as players, it’s for a competition of some kind. That was my second favourite thing about tonight, I don’t have much footage of Jogi as a player, so that alone was worth all of tonight’s work. My first favourite thing was Hansi Flick being at the game.
The score now stands as Klinsi 2 Jogi 1. A little disappointing but unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Also tonight was the first round draw for the DFB Pokal. SC Freiburg were drawn with HSV Barmbek-Uhlenhorst. They are a side from Hamburg who play in the fifth tier, the Oberliga Hamburg in which they finished third last season. Current champions VfL Wolfsburg were drawn with the Stuttgarter Kickers, the team Klinsmann began his career with. This has to be the most amusing of all the draws, Schalke are drawn with MSV Duisburg. They played Schalke in the final in 2011, the game ended 5-0 in Schalke’s favour. Last season’s giant killers Arminia Bielefeld face Hertha BSC.
2. Bundesliga Count-down – 44 days to go.
First the video and the pictures from the interview, some from 2006, 2013 and 2014 and then some from both of their playing days:
