WSV: Winter comes…mercifully

A decent outing for change, but no real result for WSV. Wuppertal travelled to Köln to face Fortuna, and despite a late strike, was unable to hold on for the victory. As usual, WSV is drifting aimlessly around. We’ll be spared any more crap performances till end January, as they get snowed in…

The big news is that Christian Knappmann will be leaving WSV in the Winterbreak, going to Borussia Dortmund II. His contract was dissolved this morning. How lame is that? Knappmann has been one of the few positives this season. He’s behind last season’s total of 30, but has managed 12 at the halfway mark, pretty respectable (2nd in league). There was some thought of him leaving before the season started, but the deal fell through. For Knappmann, it’s a jump up to the 3.Liga, and perhaps a chance to sneak in a cup-of-coffee with the big Neons. But let’s be serious. He’s already 31, and BVB-II is to develop future talent. So I assume Dortmund’s intention is to try and keep the II squad at the 3.Liga level, to maximize the quality for the young starts. So perhaps a proven goal scorer like Knappmann can help them stay up. Of course, for WSV, this is a disaster, but it just reinforces how the club is on the train to Nowheresburg…
