Bentaleb is Algerian!

They do seem like a basket case. They've gone more than half a season without winning and getting rid of Wagner two games into the season just points out how badly the club is run. Not saying they weren't right to get rid of him but if they were ready to drop him off at such short notice they might as well have given a new manager the short pre-season to implement his ideas.

There's definitely talent there but Kabak has been really poor this season. Wouldn't blame him, the atmosphere in that dressing room must be tragic. This has a Hamburg like inevitability to it especially given their financial problems.
Woops, knew he was French-born but had in my head Morocco rather than Algeria.

They will get ripped to shreds if they get relegated, it'll be a total rebuild job.
“Seeing these smiling faces is the greatest pleasure. They have been magnificent all season. They have been our 12th man. I have always said our fans are the best in England. Now I know they are the best in Europe too.” Rafa Benitez

One of the easier red card decisions you'll see these days.  Makes for a shitty rest of the game though.

Attack against defence. Hertha will have their work cut out creating chances against these. They're nothing if not dogged.

FC Union play shit on a stick footy at the best of times, so with 10 men and a goal lead, you can imagine how that goes  ;D

But, good for them, they don’t need to entertain anyone at this point. It’s up to Hertha. They have the talent, they have spent the millions, they need to start winning, or they will be after yet another new coach.

Hertha now ahead, Piątek with the goal.

Andreas Luthe not having a good game in goal for Union tonight.  Partly at fault for both goals.

I think that’s game over! Piątek again. 3-1.

2 seasons running a bit of a 2nd half collapse for Union away to Hertha. But with 10 men from so early tonight, it was always going to be tough.

finally back able to watch Bundesliga games this week, after getting a new ROKU box  ;D

Bielefeld leading against Mainz from a deflected goal, so yeah, picked a good time to start watching again  :P

Frankfurt 1 nil up vs Dortmund, and Effzeh ahead vs Wolfsburg so far.

Apparently only this Bielefeld - Mainz game has been working on ESPN+ this morning.  People kicking off on Twitter about not being able to watch Gio Reyna and Dortmund  ::)

Funny so many of us though that ESPN would be better than Fox......

Anyway, Mainz are losing 2-0 and it isn’t looking good. Their 3 game without a loss streak is going to end.

Insane amount of talent England are producing at the moment. Him, Bellingham and Elliott (obviously in a lower quality League) all getting good minutes and impressing at 17 is crazy.

And they hung on for the point.  Good result for Leipzig, especially after that crazy mid week CL game they had.

And now they have to get ready for another massive CL game midweek.

helps them a little that they could use 5 subs, so at least the likes of Forsberg, Sabitzer and Mukiele got a bit of a break.

Stuttgart have had a very solid start to the season, which sort of surprised me! A 2-1 win today at Bremen, with one of the best named players in the league, Silas Wamangituka, scoring both.

Schalke losing to Leverkusen so far, which will surprise no one.

yeah, they are such a mess and another blow to their confidence yesterday was a saved penalty when they where still (sort of) in the game.

Leverkusen though are looking good. I am quite enjoying the redemption of Peter Bosz after his short lived BVB stint!

Wamangituka got himself a yellow card for scoring the winning goal for "disrespecting the opponents" - absolute loads of codswallop the fact he got a booking there

Ref probably felt it was unsportsmanlike behaviour as defined by "shows a lack of respect for the game".
