Sept. Die jüngste Mannschaft aller Zeiten. Mainz hat wieder Bruchweg-Boys! Mit einem Alters-Durchschnitt von 23,3 Jahren feierten die 05er das Jan. Er ist nicht das erste große Mainzer Talent, das in der Fremde scheitert. Bestes Beispiel: „Die Bruchweg-Boys“ um Schürrle, Holtby und Szalai. Beim FSV Mainz 05 sind die Ansprüche gestiegen: Nur den Klassenerhalt zu schaffen, reicht nicht mehr. Es werden dafür aber neue Bruchweg-Boys gesucht.
Frequent rotation helped as almost every player evolved in some aspects — particularly tactical ones — of the game.
Throughout the last years, Tuchel has become a coach who is highly revered for a reason. Especially his pre-game preparation stands out.
Using information gathered on the other teams by extensively watching video material, he regularly changes formations and details regarding group tactical set-ups.
Moreover, this approach does not end when the referee blows the opening whistle. During the ninety minutes, Tuchel shows his inner Guardiola, effortlessly changing formations and individual positions taking the course of the game into account.
For instance, he utilized a pentagon as Mainz lost at Allianz Arena in October of However, the match itself was not that decisive. Tuchel clearly attempted to lower the pressure in the middle, where Bayern usually could pass the ball quickly and accurately.
Furthermore, some of the midfielders moved towards the ball to narrow the space around the ball carrier and win it back. On the break, one of the pivots then pushed forward joining the fast-running pack up front.
Munich overloaded the deeper half-spaces with emphasis on exploiting the lack of pressure in those zones. Tuchel is quite impressive, but not perfect yet.
Bayern Munich Mainz 05 on October 19, Another formation he regularly uses is the we have seen in his first pre-season friendlies with Borussia Dortmund.
In the first pre-season matches, we could observe a calmer ball circulation and a lack of pointless long balls which had forced Dortmund into physical battles during the last seasons.
The concept of the build-up play is easy to describe: Firstly, the ball has to move to the lone central midfielder who then plays one-twos with one of the two attacking midfielders number eights in front of him.
After winning a bit of space, Dortmund starts to overload a flank, with the full-back approaching and one of the attacking midfielders moving towards the zone out wide, while the lone striker is filling the abandoned space in the middle.
Of course, Dortmund is far from perfection at the moment, but Tuchel is again aware of the weak points, and he seemingly knows how to fix it.
Pre-season friendly — Borussia Dortmund Kawasaki Frontale: BVB overloaded the right half-space and wider zones, while Reus was moving back.
Dortmund generated breakthroughs on the flank, playing cut backs afterwards to find Reus in the middle. Tuchel deeply hates long-line passes, especially when a full-back receives the ball and almost mechanically knocks it down the flank.
Therefore, Tuchel changed the shape of the training pitch at Mainz. He cut off the corners and forced his players to move the ball diagonally.
Just one of many little screws he adjusts over and over. It is really all about details. With which foot do I receive the ball; how should I pass the ball.
He consistently consults scientists on different subjects. Tuchel relinquishes drab fitness training, but experiments with complex training procedures with varying rules.
Few Bundesliga teams boast a better squad, fewer still are so maddeningly bad at fulfilling their potential. Hamburg had more opportunities than the lethargic hosts in the first half, but still found themselves trailing at half-time.
The roles were somewhat reversed after the break, with Ruud van Nistelrooy and Pitriopa, now on as a substitute and screaming one in beautifully, levelling the score.
Then Trochowski tried to dribble when a simple pass would have sufficed. A mass panic among Hamburg fans who were kept back in the stadium by police resulted in serious injuries when those at the back started pushing.
One supporter is currently in a coma. The police insist the problems were caused by a small group of 20 people, but even a cursory glance at the disturbing YouTube footage suggests that something more fundamental had gone seriously wrong.
Mainz are his former team. The Swabians are bottom of the table again, stuck in their traditional first-half-of-the season-rut. The good news is that there are only 12 more rubbish performances to go before Stuttgart can start their traditional rally up the table in the new year, with a new manager.
Steve McClaren has turned things around by keeping things simple: Grafite, back from a two- month slumber, scored two against hapless Freiburg on Saturday.
Ia bergabung dengan Schalke pada musim panas tahun Satu per satu mereka pergi. Satu per satu pula mereka kembali ke Jerman, kembali kepada karakter sepakbola Jerman yang alot dan penuh disiplin itu.
Pada musim panas yang sama, Holtby kembali ke Jerman dengan status pemain pinjaman di Hamburg. Barulah pada Januari ini statusnya berubah menjadi pemain Hamburg seutuhnya.
Ketiganya kini berada di tiga kesebelasan berbeda. Ketiganya, karenanya, memiliki tujuan dan kepentingan yang berbeda.
