Two things this season was the Hamburger SV reasonably reliable: that wildness and immaturity were then each jumping into the top flight of the second division table in the way when it has been possible. And that Tim Walter has referred to the process of development afterwards.
The coach has remained true on Sunday broke out while his players out of the familiar cycle. After the 3: 0 against Hans Rostock, the former Bundesliga-Dino is the first time since the first match day back in the top three, the coach but Verona at this point the reference to the fact that he had always emphasized the development going in the right Direction. Instead, he emphasizes his assessment, and looks ahead — at Schalke. We are happy when we have those games. We are full of energy this week and want to be there victorious.
A home win to the financial statements on Saturday, it would be the fourth in a row, would be an exclamation point on a curve that clearly upward and had been expected in this form a few weeks ago only professional optimists. Too often, the presentations of HSV, although they were always characterized by a great show matched, but also too little efficiency. Too much also reminded 0: 1 in Hanover last week at these games and raised the question of what actually was the gaffe: the first defeat after twelve previously unbeaten games? Or the brief period of effectiveness?
The best defense in the league
Walter rejects an interim conclusion after the first round end off, because: A table is not finished even after half of the season. He prefers rated the overall context and stated: Against Rostock has become apparent that we just continued to develop in various points we have more consistency in front of goal, we are defending now but also very aggressive.
He remains in his analysis not on the surface, but clarified: Hans was very hard in the tackle when we retire there, we get the worst of what we have not done. Walters' words are confirmed by the statistics. With only 17 goals against his team is the best defense in the league. And refuted the same time the thesis be geared to extreme variability system is too susceptible to failure.
That the defensive Verdun holds, although currently seven professionals are missing from this area, is a further evidence of progress. Schalke there will be no major changes to a squad that included the Felix Pancake and Bent Andersen on Sunday two 18-year-old home-grown — at best Jonas David could to hamstring be an alternative again. Concern not preparing Walter this. Because our development is perfect. In this mantra the trainer remains reliable.
