Recap: Hannover's Bundesliga Weekend

My club Hannover 96 has become the team with the best home record so far this season. 10 victories, 1 draw and 3 defeats translate into 31 points, 2 points ahead of Bayern. Additionally, they have breached the 50 points mark and are now officially playing their best season ever. The former record was 49 points. And there are still 7 more games to go!

My orginial intention was to blog about European football in general, but I am more and more amazed by and drawn to my club's success. I mean, you can't really blame luck for their 3rd place in the league anymore. This Saturday one could once again see a perfect execution of counter-attacking-football. It didn't take the offense more than 10 seconds to score once Hannover 96 got the ball from Hoffenheim.



Granted, Hoffenheim isn't the Hoffenheim of one or two seasons ago. But still, they have billionaire SAP founder Dietmar Hopp to support them with lots of money. I just don't see team spirit there, unlike Hannover's.

As you can tell, I'm all positive right now :)

Another video I NEED to show you is about Italian striker Mario Balotelli, currently playing for Manchester City. I just can't... how... I mean sure, sometimes the bibs are a little tricky to put on, but THIS?



What do you think of him?
