Behind door number ten in the Freiburg calendar was striker and scorer of the all important last second winner against Heidenheim two weeks ago, Karim Guede. In the DFB one was the card of former VfB Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger and saving the best till last, in the Dortmund one was former striker, current stadium announcer and singer of one of my favourite songs ever Norbert Dickel. This song here:
Right now my mind is mostly on two things, the draw for the groups for Euro 2016 on Saturday which Jogi, Thomas Schneider, Andreas Köpke and Oliver Bierhoff will be present at. Oliver Bierhoff is in fact part of the ceremony. The other thing very much on my mind is what films to watch over Christmas. Whether or not I should continue with the tradition from last year or if I should start a new one. I’m not sure I can sit through Deutschland: Ein Sömmermarchen again. Not because it’s bad film, it’s not, it’s terrific in fact. I think it’s a little too good, a little too emotion provoking. So far on my provisional list I’ve got The Christmas Party, At World’s End, Home Alone and a James Bond film, one of the Brosnan or Dalton ones. What’s missing is a German film, Christoph Waltz may be able to solve that with his Christmas film Weihnachtsman gesucht.
