WSV: Another worthless draw

Another worthless draw for Wuppertal, and a negative record as well. Officially, only 725 fans showed up (other sources gave a generous 753, but the lower number are official WSV numbers). It’s been pretty pathetic since the days of 30,000+ in battles against Düsseldorf and Bayern München, but this has got to take the cake. You figured things might suck when the club announced that it was temporarily banning all “flags and banners” because of fan behaviour at the last match against Essen. (Supposedly smoke bombs and rockets were hidden among the banners). Anyway, the WSV-Ultras responsible announced they would boycott, and since they’re about the only folks that even show up these days, I guess it would suck at the gate. Another silly direction by WSV, especially since they announced that they were going to allow banners and flags at later matches anyway. A game of chicken where both sides get the big “L”.

As for the match itself, not much to report except the usual suckitude. WSV started brightly, especially Tom Moosmayer pulling strings in midfield. Marco Neppe crossed in, and Christian Knappmann rose above everyone and headed in from 14 meters. His 12th goal, off last season’s pace, but still respectable. WSV had a few chances, but as usual wasted them disgracefully. Meanwhile, Verl barely crossed midfield, but eventually managed to get a shot off and equalized. Then they pulled everything back and dared WSV to do anything, clearly a suckers bet, since obviously WSV wouldn’t be able to score again, despite some decent opportunities.

  1. So what’s up with Siegen and Viktoria Koeln? Two rookies challenging for the top?
    Meanwhile, FC Kray, which should be “my team” (at least proximity-wise) are grinding out results while still looking doomed. Incidentally, they hate Rot-Weiss Essen too… I watched a Youtube video documenting Kray’s relegation game against KFC Uerdingen: at some point, an anti-RW-Essen chant breaks out, apparently supported by both sides. It’s crass, but the censored version goes something like this:
    Rot-Weiss Essen!
    F***** und vergessen!
