I’m unlikely to be collecting any Hansi videos and photos now so Stefan will have to do:

The Final German & The Road to Completion

With the arrival of Erik Durm my Euro 2016 album is one step closer to completion, he was the final German I needed to complete their page. I now just have one sticker left before the whole album is finished, the missing sticker being number 326, Herr Kari Arkivuo of Finland. I hope this time around it works out. I got one of him just before Christmas and he was damaged. This time I hope he’s perfect. It’s nice in a way, it’s my final sticker and for the person I’m trading with it’s their first swap online. Anyhow, Erik Durm’s sticker and the complete German pages:

The next one I’m embarking upon is the Bundesliga 2013/14 album. I’ve opened 10 packets so far and am very happy that in those fifty stickers is two Freiburg players, Matthias Ginter and Oliver Baumann. Also most amusing was the fact I got both Lars and Sven Bender. Even better is not only were they in the same packet but right after each other:

Bundesliga MD3 2015/16

For me at least the must see game of the week was VfB Stuttgart v Eintracht Frankfurt, well it didn’t disappoint in the sense that same as last time there were plenty of goals. Though it was mostly one way traffic in Frankfurt’s favour, that’s a lot less fun to watch. Another defeat meaning Stuttgart remain in 17th place. It’s not HSV who need someone to rely on being worse than them, it’s Stuttgart right now and for the moment they have that in the form of Mönchengladbach. Of all the teams you could have predicted being bottom going into the international break, Gladbach would never have been one of them. Luckily for Stuttgart Gladbach also failed to get off the mark, losing 2-1 to Bremen on Sunday.

Also on Sunday Dortmund beat Hertha BSC 3-1, a match which saw Roman Bürki face off against his former teammate Vladimir Darida. Bayern beat Leverkusen 3-0, partly thanks to some very questionable decisions by the referee. Not that I wanted Bayern to lose, but it did cross my mind if Leverkusen beat them it would be revenge in a way, since Mehmedi is a Leverkusen player now. One 3-0 score-line I was pleased with is H96 losing to Mainz. It would be most ironic if they got relegated, they got Sorg and Klaus from Freiburg because of the latter’s relegation. If H96 were to get relegated it would be Klaus’ third relegation in a row.
