Düsseldorf Once again, FC Bayern is at the top of the league. Basically, everything in the league is as usual. Only Schalke and Bayer 04 Leverkusen are still lagging behind.
It’s only the third (!) matchday in the Bundesliga and already all those involved are terribly excited. But many things are the same as always. The FC Bayern Munich is enthroned at the top, behind it the competition is united in humility. Zuggen, a few clubs pull in these days with still another portion more restraint by the country. At FC Schalke 04 they wanted to take a step forward after the runner-up championship last season. Probably they didn’t mean seriously to challenge the Bavarians, but wanted to consolidate their own style of play. But so far there is not so much to see about that. The king’s blues still have frighteningly big difficulties to internalize the ways of their work colleagues. But one can learn (in real time).
In Mönchengladbach many things look surprisingly easy. The first minutes against the squires have already made the first ones reminisce about Borussia Barcelona. To the general reassurance: until then it is still a long way. After all, Borussia’s manager Max Eberl did everything right when he repeatedly defended his continued cooperation with coach Dieter Hecking. In the Borussia environment, the man from Castrop-Rauxel is obviously not “exciting” enough for some. Hecking would do well not to change anything about his “packaging”, but to concentrate on his “contents”.

In Leverkusen, you can once again marvel at how blue-eyed people sometimes go about their work in football. Heiko Herrlich is a totally likeable guy. However, he has already lost support in the club some time ago. Why, why, why – difficult to break down. In any case, he is already counted after the third matchday. Colleague Mr Hecking is absolutely right when he calls speculations about dismissal miserable. Once again, during the summer break, a club missed out on a clear position. In any case, there is no other way to explain why all the plans developed together should be worthless at such an early stage of the season.

The Bundesliga would do well to assess itself correctly. In the international competitions, no German representative could sustainably advertise on their own behalf. What matters most is the content and not the packaging. Only three days after the goalless draw against world champions France, Löw completed his 167th match with the national team. He thus surpassed the previous record set by Sepp Herberger.
