    Basement club Crotone are giving Champions League football chasers Napoli a run for their money, they've pulled it back to 3-3 on the hour mark in a fascinating contest!

    It was a marvelous own goal though. Lobbed the keeper with a side of face header

    Bellingham has gone off now, but what a magnificent young player!

    Eintracht ahead again, but it’s chalked-off for offside!

    This game is delicately poised.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    You could see with the naked eye it was offside, you could also see that VAR should have been used for a penalty shout too earlier.

    Two minutes plus stoppages, that could be a massive goal for Eintracht.

    That’s a massive three points for Eintracht Frankfurt!

    Dortmund couldn’t break them down, and the gap to the Champions League is now seven points.

    Wow what a win. The ref was a bit questionable with some decisions. 7 point gap now between 4th and 5th.

    A superb away performance from Lille today at le Parc des Princes sees les Dogues prevail 1-0 to reclaim the top spot in Ligue 1, which is still very much a 4-horse race between LOSC, PSG, Lyon and Monaco. Neymar got himself sent off in the last few minutes too, which is always nice to see.

    Ha! Hadn't noticed that.


    Meanwhile the derby della mole has finished and a 79th minute goal was enough to rob toro of all three points.

    Been a good day for inter so far.

    It’s something like 90km from Köln to Dortmund, so it’s not like the poor lad could have walked home either.

    If someone could contact Dortmund that would be grand, I've had a feral football player sleeping on my balcony for the last few nights.

    If that’s the case, the poor lad is going the wrong direction!

    Default La Liga/Serie A/Bundesliga/Ligue Un &amp; other World Football Thread

    One from the „where did it all go wrong“ department this week; former Bundesliga stalwarts 1.FC Kaiserslautern, who were a top-flight fixture between the founding of the Bundesliga in 1963, and 1996, before securing an immediate promotion and then incredibly winning the Bundesliga in the next season under legendary Manager Otto Rehhhagel, find themselves in real danger of dropping into the fourth-tier of German football this season following some abject displays.

    Die roten Teufel, who last played in the top-flight in 2012, suffered a series of financial problems which saw them struggle in the 2. Bundesliga, before in 2018, falling into the 3. Liga for the first time in their history.

    They’ve really struggled at that level and currently sit second from bottom of the table, four points from safety (and with a worse goal difference to the side in that safe position, FC Bayern‘s reserves).

    To make matters worse, this weekend they’re playing a potential relegation six-pointer against the side directly above them in the relegation places, VfB Lübeck, away from Home.

    And they’re losing, 1-0.

    And to make matters even worse, when the team came to board their team bus to the stadium today, they saw this:



    It seems Lübeck‘s „Ultras“ decided to do a little graffiti to the Kaiserslautern coach.

    Much like TSV 1860 München, another big name in Bundesliga history, Kaiserslautern have been brought low by trying to spend beyond their means. It would be a real tragedy to see them fall into what is now semi-professional football in the German pyramid; their Fritz-Walter-Stadion, with its almost 50.000 capacity, is a magnificent Arena to watch football in, packed with passionate and loyal fans.

    What a result again for Frankfurt! It's never boring to watch a game they're involved in!

    Bayern 1, Union 1 is the result of the day so far.

    Eintracht will be hoping that Stuttgart can do them a favour in the evening kickoff against Dortmund (who are now ten points behind Der Adler with a game in hand.

    A Stuttgart win would be lovely or even a draw. Frankfurt have to effectively lose 3 games between now and the end of the season and Dortmund win them all to switch places.

    This is just sad. Early in my football watching days Kaiserslautern were flying high in the Bundesliga with players like Klaus Toppmoeller, Ronnie Hellstrom, Rainer Geye and Hannes Bongartz. It seems like a big part of their overspending was on refurbishing the Fritz Walter Stadion for the World Cup. I hope they can bounce back from this.

    Bundesliga Management Merry-go-round news:

    After 1. FC Köln lost again, and are now in the relegation zone, coach Markus Gisdol was relieved of his duties at the weekend.

    Also doing the rounds: a strong rumour that Eintracht Coach Adi Hütter has agreed a contract to coach Borussia Mönchengladbach (whose own Coach, Marco Rose, regular readers will recall, is taking over at Borussia Dortmund next season). The rumour is a release-clause of a staggering €7.5m has been paid by Doe Fohlen, the highest ever for a Coach.
