WSV blog: more continued disaster

Wuppertal suffered yet another embarassing defeat, this time at home 2-3 to neighbors SSVg Velbert. And since Fortuna Düsseldorf II shocked Viktoria Köln on the road, it comes down to the last game. And WSV has to travel to Verl, which could be a tough assignment, while the mini Düssels get to play the already relegated mini-Duisburgers.

If you look at the table below, you can see how precarious the situation is. If WSV fails to win, there’s a good chance that they’ll go down. 15th spot means relegation, as Aachen is coming down from the 3.Liga. With Oberliga champions coming up (Uerdingen, Euskirchen, Lippstadt, Wattenscheid) that means too many clubs. The Regionalliga West is also scheduled to reduce to 18 clubs. From what I’ve been able to piece together, that means 15th spot is doomed as well.

So the “Initiative WSV 2.0″ wants voluntary relegation and administration along with a new start. The Runge cronies have been claiming Regionalliga or bust, but it sounds like the Oberliga is becoming a reality anyway because of their own incompetance. The good news is that as long as the request for administration is in by June 30, they wouldn’t get relegated down to the Verbandsliga as a penalty…Seriously, the WSV 2.0 is the only way forward, it’s bad enough WSV is the laughingstock of German football…to think that this is a club that has beaten both Champions League finalists in the Bundesliga days…

  1. Next season the Regionalliga West will be full of former Bundesliga teams – Aachen, Darmstadt, Fortuna Cologne, RW Essen, RW Oberhaused, Wattenscheid, Uedingen – maybe even Wuppertal if you’re lucky!!

  2. Yeah, but it’s the “lucky” part that seems unlikely. I think the members will vote for starting over and thereby going down to the Oberliga. Seems like the only way forward is to go backwards.
    The list is impressive, even if Darmstadt will end up in the Regionalliga SW…

  3. Darmstadt likley to play in SW (Hessen and BW tend to be lumped together) although I noticed that FCK 2 are also in this group.

    • What is unusual is now the Südwest consists of Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Hessen and Baden-Württtemburg. In fact in recognition of the strength of the division, the RSW 1st and 2nd compete in the 3.Liga playoffs.
