Canucks in Germany - December 2007

Guest Ed

Recommended Posts

David Hoillet was in action again yesterday for SC Paderborn reserves. He had 3 or 4 chances in a 1-0 loss. The coach post game said he would have been better off to lay off to another player in a couple of situations but then added that he is just 17 years old.

Sounds like he is making quite an impression. Looking forward to seeing how he does in Germany. SC Paderborn, the senior version, managed a 0-0 draw with 1860 Muenchen yesterday in the Bundesliga 2, to help in their climb out of relegation territory. Kevin Mckenna's FC Koeln drop back to 4th place in the Bundesliga 2 following a big win by FSV Mainz 05 today.

Riley O'Neill scored a 'dream goal' this past weekend according to press reports on the SV Wilhelmshaven - VfB Luebeck II game in the Oberliga Nord. They are currently on track to promote to the Regional League(s) next season.

Also, Eddie Sidra Mahir was once again in action for Energie Cottbus U19's in a 3-1 loss to Eintracht Braunschweig.

No sign of Kennedy Owusu-Ansah with either Hertha Berlin's U23's or U19's last weekend.

Hansa Rostock's Oberliga Nord/NordOst game from this past weekend has been rescheduled for this Saturdy. The Oberliga Nord/NordOst are then on winter break until late Feb '08.

Still two weeks of action left in the Oberliga Nord as Riley O'Neill and SV Wilhelmshaven take on FC St Pauli reserves and Jonathan Bourgault this coming weekend.

He didn't start until October or so as he was badly injured on the last day of the 2006/2007 season. He has 4 goals in 8 games and limited playing time. Late sub in his first game. He then scored in his first two starts, had a 3 game lull, then a goal in the each of the last two games.

On Saturday in the top league, VfL Bochum, with Daniel Imhof holding down his starting role in midfield, host SC Karlsruher.

Patrice suffered an injury in the derby vs Mainz. It´s not sure if he comes back for the homegame sunday with Carl Zeiss Jena.

The lines up for the games mostly comming out at the game day. Even the local press did not mention anything about a poosible start yet

As mentioned in a Ryan Gyaki specific thread, Ryan appeared mid-week for the Hansa Rostock reserves. The Oberliga Nord game today between SV Wilhelmshaven and FC St Pauli reserves has been postponed.

Also, on the David Hoillet watch, the U23 game for SC Paderborn also postponed today.

Josh Simpson also assisted the go ahead goal. After a steal in midfield he passed to Erik Jendrisek and he scored the 1:0.

Next week they will visit Cologne. Hopefully Patrice Bernier will be back, so we´ll see 3 Canadians

Great to see Simpson having a great run of form. Keep it going, Josh!

Josh was the best player for the FCK. He was the only player who tried to brace his feet against the defeat. Was involved in all good actions, from which K´town had a lot in the first period. But his teamates where unable to paraly it.

Now they are in deep trouble facing Cologne bevore they are going into the winter break. I fear they will to winter on a relegation spot.

Rob Friend opens the scoring 6 minutes into the top of the B2 table battle between SC Freiburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach. His tenth goal of the season.

Nice goal from Friend here. Super game from Neuville setting up all 3 goals but Friend does well (WITH HIS FEET) on this first goal. The win leaves Borussian Moenchengladbach as 'Fall Champions' (HerbstMeisterschaft) regardless of results next weekend (last games before the LONG Christmas break at the season's half way point).


Friend is now 2nd in the scoring race, with 10 goals (Novakovic with FC Koeln has 14).

Last weekend of games for Bundesliga 1 and 2 as they start their winter break next week.

In the Bundesliga 1, Daniel Imhof will likely be on the bench as Hansa Rostock host his club VfL Bochum on Sunday. Captain Zdebel is back and likely to start as holding midfielder in lieu of Daniel.

In the Bundesliga 2, Jonathan Bourgault might be with the 18 man FC St Pauli squad as the host FSV Mainz 05 tomorrow. - update - looks like JBB has a knock and may not play this weekend - ed.

On Sunday, Rob Friend will start again as Borussia Moenchengladbach host SC Paderborn 07. Nik Ledgerwood still out as 1860 Muenchen host Erzebirge Aue.

On Monday, Cdn derby as FC Koeln (Kevin McKenna) host FC Kaiserslautern (Josh Simpson and Patrice Bernier).

Going into this weekend, Daniel Imhof's VfL Bochum sit in 11th of 18 in the B1 with 19 points, some 5 points ahead of Hansa Rostock, the team with the most points in relegation territory.

In the B2 table, SC Paderborn (who rumour has it will have David Hoillet in action come January 2008) and FC Kaiserslautern are both in relegation territory today. Borussia Moenchengladbach is the fall champion, FC Koeln (2pts out) and 1860 Muenchen (4 pts out) are both chasing promotion spots. FC St Pauli are bottom half of the table, only 3 points ahead of the highest placed team in relegation danger.

The B1 and B2 teams are busy lining up exhibition games when they take their training abroad after Christmas. FC Kaiserslautern (Bernier and Simpson) are looking to play Rosenborg (Hirschfeld) in the second week of January in the Maspalomas Cup while training in the Grand Canaries.
