Happy Löw Day/Joachim Löw at SC Freiburg v Bayer Leverkusen 2017/18

And there was me thinking I wouldn’t be posting anything today. Not because I forgot what day it was, I wouldn’t do that. I might be more preoccupied with handball and Christian Prokop’s future right now but I wouldn’t forget today. It’s Löw day but for once I didn’t have anything planned. Ideally I would have liked to post a newly made video or a story but that’s just not happening right now, creativity of the positive kind is in short supply. Still at least Freiburg didn’t lose on Jogi’s birthday, that would have been horrible. They didn’t win either – drawing 0-0, but considering they got hammered last time they played Leverkusen I can live with the draw. More importantly not losing means they keep their unbeaten streak going, extending it to nine games. If they avoid defeat next week against Hannover, it’ll be ten. And to make the day even more perfect Alexander Schwolow is back in goal for Freiburg after missing last week’s game due to injury.

Hansi Flick HT Interview – Hoffenheim v Bayer Leverkusen 2017/18

Hansi Flick HT Interview – Hoffenheim v Bayer Leverkusen 2017/18

At this rate I wasn’t sure there was going to be a first post of the year, let alone need to worry what it would end up being about. I would have said that Hansi won the day but with Hoffenheim losing 4-1 to Leverkusen that’s not strictly true. It’s Freiburg who are the real winners of the day, beating Leipzig 2-1. As happy as I am about that victory (not so much because of the three points but more getting to beat Leipzig) I wasn’t even sure my first post would be football related. The past week I’ve thought more about handball than football and it’s the other Bundestrainer that’s been the focus of my attention, it’s not a Jogi week but a Prokop week. And funnily enough before becoming the coach of the national handball team Christian Prokop coached none other than Leipzig. I didn’t really get handball before but I have to admit it’s exciting to watch. And interesting in the sense that it too uses VAR though it seems to be used a little quicker and more effectively than in football. Despite the time it’s been taking up it’s not a new obsession exactly, well maybe it is, but it’s not one to compete with the ones I already have. If it were then I wouldn’t have cared about Hansi’s interview today or the fact the presenter was Peter who’s one of my favorites.
