Chavs and proud of it.


And as a bonus for all those who are into it Wink :


Mesut with his dad.




So, I'm awaiting all your Messi and Mannschaft posts. Laughing


Awwww, Phillip. Laughing I could look at this forever.

PostSubject: Celebrating the awesomeness that is Football gif.   Mon Nov 07, 2011 1:26 am

While we're all excitedly waiting for next year, here it comes:


Poldi Keks is a classic.




Total OTP.


Poldi just can't wait.








Thomas seems to feel uncomfortable.

He's like... 2 years younger than I am. XD






He's just too endearing...

He's like the kid at school so desperately trying to be funny. He's actually really cool, but people find him annoying. Sad


And because it never gets old:

I also watched an interesting documentary yesterday. It's in German though.

"Homosexualität im Fußball": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4AOVX-4qW4

The last part is really sad. It's about professional football players who're too scared to "out" themselves. From some of the best clubs in Germany, apparently.

I wish wish wish wish wish I had the time to watch sport. bounce Some days I feel like watching soccer... uh ... football more than anything and I just can't (because of school either directly = work to do, or indirectly = it's on really late when I have school the next day Rolling Eyes ). No I wish I was knowledgeable about football and different teams and was as crazy as a team as I am about my favourite bands.

I know that feeling. ^^ Football is not something that just is part of my life. I have to make a big effort to relate to it. I haven't watched many games in my life. But sometimes I get a feeling that seems like what football fans feel like when they watch a game.

I have only watched one game this year. ^^

I believe that football is still seen as a chav sport. And most male football fans sneer at women who are into football anyway. I guess a lot of sexism is still involved when it comes to certain sports. I mean... I didn't pay attention to the women's world cup. ^^ It's just the way it is. You're kind of born into the male domain of football. And it gets a lot of publicity.

I don't know the rules.

I don't know the teams other than their name and one or two of their players at best. Who usually also play for the national team. ^^

I watched the World Cup in 2002. And the European Championship in 2004.

Oh God, Greece actually won the European Championship? oO I forgot. I was totally into them for absolutely no reason. And they won? I forgot...

Awwww, that's the cutest thing ever. Awwww, Greece.

It's always good to check. Very Happy


I remember the World Cup in 2002. I was hoping for Germany to win because we'd already won 3 times and Brazil had won 4 times by then and I hoped for Germany to be running together with Brazil. I was equally peeved when Italy won in 2006 because Germany was pushed on 3. (I'm into lists, you see...)

Germany won in 1954, 1974 and 1990. So... 2014 should be the year to win. Every 20 years or so.

I am hopeful. I want to cry. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad



Guys, I am getting overly emotional here. I just love our team at the moment. We have the best coach the German team ever has had. He's brilliant in so many ways.

And I bought the book!!!! It's only a month old.



It should arrive tomorrow. It's probably very trashy, but it's better than nothing.

I'm still waiting for his autobiography.
(Even Phillip Lahm has one, so...)

And I might really buy the audiobook. Because he sounds so great, you know... Oh well, I guess that's just my thing. Even though I believe there are other people out there who dig it.


The Germany national football team manager (German: Bundestrainer, literally 'Federal Coach') is a position created in 1926 and first held by Otto Nerz. The German team began playing matches in 1908, but for 18 years it had no manager. Instead a selection committee chose the team.

Ten different men have occupied the post since its inception, all of whom are German. Seven of the ten have previously played for the national team, the exceptions being Nerz, Erich Ribbeck, and current incumbent Joachim Löw.

1. Otto Nerz (Reichstrainer) 25. Apr. 1928 – 17. Okt. 1936

Oh my God, he was so stylish!!!! XD Those clothes...

2. Sepp Herberger (Reichstrainer) 15. Nov. 1936 – 22. Nov. 1942

Football players looked so great in their clothes back then...

Sepp Herberger 22. Nov. 1950 – 7. Juni 1964
Weltmeister 1954

3. Helmut Schön 4. Nov. 1964 – 21. Juni 1978

Weltmeister 1974

4. Jupp Derwall 11. Okt. 1978 – 20. Juni 1984


5. Franz Beckenbauer (Teamchef); 12. Sep. 1984 – 8. Juli 1990
Horst Köppel & Holger Osieck (Trainerlizenzträger)

Omg, that picture!!! XD Made my day.
Weltmeister 1990

6. Berti Vogts 29. Aug. 1990 – 5. Sep. 1998


7. Erich Ribbeck 10. Okt. 1998 – 20. Juni 2000


8. Rudi Völler (Teamchef) 16. Aug. 2000 – 24. Juni 2004
Michael Skibbe (Trainerlizenzträger)

Oh, you cannot imagine the cult... Especially at the World Cup 2002...

9. Jürgen Klinsmann 26. Juli 2004 – 8. Juli 2006

He's kind of eluded me for a while...

10. Joachim Löw 16. Aug. 2006 – Stay here forever!!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad 2 and a half years.
Please, another 10 years. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad


"Löw, der älteste von vier Brüdern, verlebte Kindheit und Jugend in seinem Geburtsort Schönau im Schwarzwald."
Get this. The place he was born in has, as of now, 2500 inhabitants. If you're familiar with towns that have less than 10,000 inhabitants... That is NOT a lot. In an interview he said that he actually said he had a good childhood. So he's lucky I guess. Smile Because, you know, the Black Forest is like... It's VERY isolated.

But Joachim, even though he didn't play for the national team, is SC Freiburg's top goal scorer. He played 252 games and scored 81 goals in the second German Football League. Löw also played four times for the German national under-21 football team.

So... he wasn't exactly bad, he just was not lucky. I think it's quite something if you play second league and are the best scorer your team ever had.

That's a question to ponder. Is every player that plays for the German team top scorer of the team he is from?

A "very restricted view"? I don't think so ;p
It's not that they're merely of Polish origin, those two guys were actually born in Poland, and have families here they left behind
AND if you consider the fact that they seriously contributed to our team having been eliminated from the last Euros...
PAINFUL LOL
...like I said ;p

And I guess I better scram from this thread before we seriously start to fight lol
Football fever is not a thing to be trifled with Wink




and yes, I know about Özil ;p

In general, I don't like the way football players are sold off to foreign teams either. Miro and Poldi seem to be very happy in our team though.

But it's sad that they left their family behind. Sad I was not aware of that.

I look at European football with awe and hope because it's sooo popular and so much more classy than the most popular sports here. It seems that all our sports are horribly violent, corrupt, commercialised reality TV shows with players who have an IQ of 10 and no respect for their image or the sport's image and its impact on young children. Then you look at European soccer and it seems so shiny and clean and respectful, a sport with integrity, where the players have skill and are nice people. Now I know I'm generalising greatly but it was to prove a point - that's a foreign perspective on things, and I doubt it's just me who thinks this and can't shake the stereotypes views that have somehow been created.

I think I do agree with you. I find American sports, for example, absolutely weird. American Football seems so absurd and unreal to me. Or Baseball. Even though Baseball seems more interesting to me.

I do not completely agree with your view that the players seem nice. Because you can get real dicks in "European football". But I think I get your point. ^^

Perhaps the possibility is greater that you get a smart and fair football/soccer player, but... I don't know... ^^

I agree with the American sport too! And it's funny, I agree that baseball seems less weird somehow - maybe because there have been numerous Simpsons episodes on it and as such I am *kind of* accustomed to it? Razz

Haha, well good, I'm glad you see where I'm coming from and yes, that sounds about right.

Australian writers on Joachim Löw:







That image in the second row on the far right... Me likes. Love

I want this.


Love






Hahahaha, they're the cutest OTP everrrr.


Bierhoff always tries to steal Joachim away...


But Hansi is persistent. Laughing


Deer in the headlights glance.


Hahaha. They both do NOT agree. Joachim is rather disgusted.




Someone on Tumblr wrote: ship them

My reply was rather long. It included:





This is probably the best ever:

Just tell me the song
And I'll sing it"

I make a calendar for my sister with lots of football images of Joachim Löw, Hansi Flick, Mesut Özil, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski, Mats Hummels, Arne Friedrich and Thomas Müller.

Bwhahahaha, it's so awesome. I could make it every day.

OK, I will do that. ^^

I had my first Joachim Löw dream tonight. Laughing

It was something to do with cars. And his hair looked like this:





And because I love it, I'll post the header of the Joachim Löw Tumblr here:


Best header ever.

And:

I just laughed out loud. I forgot it exists. XD

And:



I love this. Because...

Tom Cruise.

I couldn't even identify the Mission Impossible posters all around town until I read that the film exists a couple of days ago. ^^ Well, not too much into Tom Cruise, might be the reason. ^^ These things always elude me.



Ooooh, I almost forgot. My mother's friend from school/colleague said today that she bought her father a NIVEA package. No one commented on it. But I grinned internally. Because she said she bought him "a Jogi bag". Love No one seemed to care. But I did. I lead such a closet life in many respects. My Joachim Löw infatuation is just one of many interests that go unnoticed by my friends and family.



Aaaah, I'm sorry for so much off-topicness, but:


Love

They're totally adorable.

This man. Is. So. Great. Because... everything. You know, that guy was a... OK, I have to look that term up now.



He was an altar boy in his home town's church. You know... and the reason why he did it was, how he said it, "because people liked to see that sort of thing". And I knew what he meant. Because... well, I could relate.

Also, the one actress he'd invite for dinner was Cate Blanchett. Very Happy Who is... cool. So... I am happy.

He doesn't want his wife in the public eye because she's not just the Bundestrainer's wife, leading her own life. You know... Well, he's quite... humble. So...

To him football is... art. Well, that's not sooo unusual, but he...

Oh yes, I love me some trivia. He used to read the "Kicker" - the popular German football mag - and practically learn it by hard. And little Joachim was always seen kicking his ball to practice. I think... it was worth it to buy the biography. Two chapters in and I already learnt quite a lot of things. Not just about him, about football in general.


OK, right, http://ifitsnotlove.tumblr.com . I am in fits of laughter right now.
