…and off we go! Two days before summer preparation, the DFB Pokal 2012-13 draw took place today. The squad (we ‘ll get back to this later) will travel close to the French-German borders, particularly to Offenburg. Seems like an idyllic place with a first look but dont fool yourselves! Some late season results (Chemnitzer FC, Eintracht Trier) along with the UNKNOWN present team condition lead to the conclusion that Offenburg may be proven less friendly than it looks…

…this is our opponent…(clicking on it will help a little!)

Offenburger Fussball Verein 1907 e.V.… They are currently playing in the Baden-Württemberg Oberliga (5th division). This is a quite old Club (actually older than us, established in 1907) and…proud Amateur German Champions 1984! They seem a  little, real amateur football club, with a beautiful traditional 15.000 seat capacity stadium and the local community strongly involved and behind the squad. Unfortunately, the Scum knows nothing further regarding things like their fan-base culture etc, so anybody knowing anything, please feel free to enrich this on the comment section 🙂

We could summarize describing our opponents as a question mark…Yes, they are in the fifth division but our tragic performances during the past seasons against Chemnitzer FC and Eintracht Trier have already proved that anything goes when talking football. And of course, as result of our recent Summer disqualifications, these guys will not “fear” us…

What makes things even more complicated is the fact that OUR team is an even bigger question mark than our opponents… Summer team preparation supposed to start next week but with half-the squad out and only one new transfer (Daniel Ginczek) after the end of the season, no one really knows how the team, that will face Offenburger FV, will look like and the (eternally moaning) Scum sees a grave danger of adding a third DFB-Pokal-Medal-Of-Honour to the fine collection that we have lately started…

Of course there’s a lot of time ’till then. The season will have already started and when the time comes we will know (for good or bad) a lot more…In the meantime the Scum has nothing better to do than switching back to Summer Mode 🙂

Some brain-food for the end: New season outfits were out today – no third DFB Pokal red kit, as used to, included – why?

Enjoy Summer everybody!
