WSV: It sucks to be us…

WSV managed to disgrace itself in the worst way possible: losing at home to last place TuS Koblenz!!

The “massive” crowd in the Zoo-Stadion was shocked at the lack of ideas and general incompetance of the WSV squad. Things could have gotten off to a good start however, as after 10 minutes they had a huge chance. Christian Knappmann was alone in front of the goal, but the Regionalliga’s leading scorer missed wide. That just seem to make Wuppertal even more nervous, and the guests simply packed the box and waited for their chance. It happened just after half-time, and then Koblenz went back into their shell. Wuppertal pressed, but looked pretty clueless. The visitors tried to help out, as Göderz got his ass tossed on a straight red after 64 minutes, but even a man advantage wasn’t enough to equalize.

  1. A few (as in, 2 or 3) days ago, Kicker’s homepage had an article on the A-Jugend (ages 16-18) Bundesliga. I didn’t even know such a thing existed. Actually, it’s more of a “Regionalliga” setup, with three regional divisions: North/North-East, South/South-West and West, so maybe just the name “Junioren-Bundesliga” is (relatively) new.

    It turns out that Kicker provides results and tables for both the A-Jugend and the B-Jugend (ages 14-16), as well as pretty frequent articles on German junior football. I’ve been reading Kicker’s online version daily for at least five years now, and had no idea. I think the articles are not fed to the main page, except maybe occasionally.

    Anyway, even more surprising was the A-Jugend-West table, which features WSV, albeit last in 14th (and last) place. This means that WSV is among Germany’s top 42 teams at that youth level. Surely we can expect some future Mario Götze or at least Bastian Schweinsteiger to emerge from Wuppertal.

    (I am kidding about Schweinsteiger, I know he is the much more accomplished of the two, at least for the time being :-)

    • Yeah, WSV occasionally has had some decent youth teams. But I’ve really not seen any major talent develop out of the squad. There have been some that move on to the main squad, but I would guess that anyone with real talent soon gets snapped up by a better club.
