2.Liga, Round 7

1. FC Köln finally got their first win, a tough one against surprising FSV Frankfurt. Köln was the dominant side, and FSV was too passive. Perhaps they were expecting that their hosts would suck and they’d be able to waltz home with a point. Köln has sucked a lot, but occasionally shown their talent and played good football. Their main problem seems to be that their strikers couldn’t hit the side of a barn. Perhaps this is what Köln needs to get their engine started. Even though they remain in a relegation spot, half the teams in the 2.Liga look crap, and a couple of wins could get them out of the mess.

Leaders Braunschweig had a suprisingly difficult time with crap-place Duisburg. The Zebras defended well and Eintracht, although dominant from the start, was unable to create many chances. However a defensive lapse with 10 minutes left ruined the Zebras hope. A nice floating cross from the left side found Pfitzner unmarked, 1-0. Then the dam broke and the Duisburgers took another couple of shots up the ass.

Cottbus remains on track, with a hard fought victory over Paderborn. Energie was the better side and deserved the win.

Hertha BSC won without really trying in an eastern showdown with Dresden. An earkly own goal gave the Berliners the lead, and Dynamo was too incompetant to mount anything, Hertha GK Thomas Kraft could have gone to the pub during the match and still come back to a clean sheet. Minimal football on display, but points for Hertha, and they’re in contention.

A solid performance by 1860 as they won easily in the Bavarian derby at Ingolstadt. The Schanzer have been up and down, so the Müncheners showed who’s boss and maintain the bragging rights.

St.Pauli continues to suck, and lost for the first time at home with a horrid performance against Aalen. In fact, the visitors wasted a penalty in injury time, not that they needed it. The Paulista board took immediate action and fired coach Andre Schubert, so let’s see how they the look in the next few matches. Great points for promoted Aalen.

Regensburg got both their goals with seconds left in each half and get their first raod win. Otherwise nobody cared about the match in Sandhausen.

In a battle of pathetic sides, Union seemed to have things under control and on the way to an important win. After all, Aue can’t score goals, and this was no exception. But despite the 1-0 lead, the Berliners got greedy and decided to score another one, except they kicked it into their own net, and voila, draw.

On Thursday, Kaiserslautern had a relatively easy time with a lame Bochum squad. The hosts did nothing, so FCK happily took the lead and extended it, coasting to the win. Pathetic performance by Bochum, clearly going nowhere again.
