Lazio lack the goals of the “german bomber” klose

Lazio lack the goals of the 'german bomber' klose

Against atalanta bergamo the 35-year-old is supposed to make his comeback after his fub surgery on sunday, but will probably only sit on the bench for the time being. "Lazio lacks the goals of the german bomber, the decisive ones, the important ones," analyzed the "corriere dello sport".

Exactly four weeks after his last game for rome, klose wants to return to the pitch and improve his record of only one goal this season. Coach vladimir petkovic and the fans breathe a sigh of relief and hope for klos’ goals in the coming decisive weeks in serie A and the europe league. The german national player has been training with the team again since tuesday.

Much more headlines than the imminent comeback, however, were made during the week by the future plans of the striker. According to media reports, he has received offers from the USA and england – and a return to germany after the end of his contract in 2014 does not seem out of the question. According to the "corriere dello sport," only one thing is certain: "he has yet to make up his mind."

When fubball players mess with nature

When fubball players mess with nature

The company name is program. The brothers rudolf (33) and johann soder (28) from kilianshof/rhon in the municipality of sandberg are the "sports field professionals. The idea to offer soccer clubs know-how around the sports field was the father’s idea many years ago. Master farmer rudolf soder tells the local newspaper how to treat lawns in this difficult season for footballers.

Football goes on winter break no later than mid-december. Not only the kicker, but also the floor needs a break after several months of strain?
Rudolf soder: the most important break for the turf is the break in summer. Because there is the vegetation phase. In winter there is no vegetation, therefore no regeneration is possible in these months. Damage can be caused by extreme weather conditions.

So the lawn rests. Happens more in the soil? What do bacteria and earthworms do??
Also the ground life is quasi set. The earthworms crawl deep into the soil. Only when the soil temperature rises to six or seven degrees do bacteria and worms become active again. Then the growth can be very fast. This is usually the case in the middle to end of march.

Club has a lot planned

club has a lot planned

The annual general meeting of the local history society was well prepared and suitably well attended. The planned event on 15. June with spilk and fredi breunig at the sport home is already casting its shadows ahead. Under the title "A dream, otherwise it comes from fredi breunig, for whom it is a long-cherished dream to perform together with spilk in schmalwasser, a rough open-air festival is to be put on its feet. At 18 o’clock it already goes off, so that also older mitburger have the possibility of enjoying the two high points of the celebration. Even though admission is free, donations will be made to benefit the lebenshilfe rhon-grabfeld charity.

Chairman steffen zehe recalled in his review the excursion to the state horticultural show in wurzburg last year, which was organized together with the hunting comrades. The redesign of the war memorial has been postponed, because the church administration and the community of sandberg have plans for barrier-free access and will thus also come to the area of the war memorial. "It makes sense to wait and plan together", says zehe. The kneipp facility has also been put on hold, at least until the construction of the new fire station is completed. The popular festival at the waterwheel can only take place again when the construction work is finished. Construction work is currently underway on the bridge.

Baking oven festival went down well

Baking with the new oven was very well received. The burgers had the opportunity to bring their own dough in a baking pan and bake bread or cakes in a wood-burning oven. This baking was combined with a feast, and of course nothing of the delicacies was left over. This year the baking is to be offered again, but the date has not been fixed yet. The tent was rented out four times last year. In the meantime, he said, the local association has bought a new roof tarp and a string of lights. Whether a tent cleaning will be necessary, is to be decided at the end of the year.

After strike: uefa keeps watch on ukraine

After strike: uefa keeps watch on ukraine

"These events in no way affect UEFA’s confidence in the security measures planned by the ukrainian authorities for UEFA EURO 2012, which will ensure a cheerful tournament without any incidents," it sounded from the association’s headquarters in nyon, switzerland. The situation in ukraine, however, is being "monitored".

In dnepropetrovsk, several people were injured when four explosive devices were detonated. "Our thoughts are with the injured, to whom we wish a speedy and full recovery," UEFA announced. "Regarding today’s explosions in dnipropetrovsk, UEFA will await the results of the investigation by the ukrainian authorities," said the continental football governing body.

The industrial city 400 kilometers southeast of kiev is in the european championship from 8. June to 1. July no venue. But it is the birthplace of former prime minister julia timoshenko. The discussion about the imprisoned politician puts UEFA under further pressure. Despite criticism, federation head michel platini again defended awarding the host role to ukraine.

Wurzburg basketball team with transfer coup: benzing arrives

Wurzburg basketball team with transfer coup: benzing arrives

Wurzburg (dpa) – the basketball bundesliga team s.Oliver wurzburg has scored a real transfer coup with the signing of robin benzing. The captain of the german national team has signed a three-year contract with the club in lower franconia, according to the club’s announcement.

The 28-year-old wing player last played for CAI saragossa in spain and was previously active for a long time in the bundesliga in ulm and with FC bayern munchen. Most recently, benzing captained the DBB team at the european championships and reached the round of the last eight with the team around top star dennis schroder.

"We and our fans can be very proud of the signing of the captain of the national team. He will give us even more quality, variability and scoring at the wing positions," coach dirk bauermann said euphorically in a club statement.

Play-off place is not a self-runner

play-off place is not a self-runner

The table does not lie. After 16 of 32 games in the bundesliga's main round, brose bamberg's basketball team is bottom of the table and outside the play-off range, having lost to seven of the eight teams ranked ahead of them. Only against the second-placed MHP riesen ludwigsburg did the team manage a win. The remaining seven victories were all against teams from the second half of the table.

At the end of the first half of the season, coach roel moors' team has a positive points tally of 18:14, but that is not enough to secure the play-off place they are aiming for. 9th place in the table is not the ambition of the former serial champion, the personnel change is more difficult than expected. The failure in the preliminary round of the champions league is also evidence of this. The new team formed at the beginning of the season with eight newcomers is still far from meshing – even the two new signings retin obasohan and darion atkins could not change that.

Weak in the final phase

One reason for the bumpy first round in the bundesliga is the negative home record. Brose arena, once considered an impregnable fortress, has lost its fear of opponents. The moors team has only managed three home victories so far, and has lost five times. The defeats against ulm, wurzburg and vechta, in which the bambergers had started the last quarter with a lead but squandered it, were particularly galling. Weaknesses in the final phase also cost the bambergers a victory in the champions league games against nymburk as well as in nizhny nowgorod, bar and most recently in peristeri. Moors therefore rightly stated: "we have many games that we start well, but in the end there is a lack of concentration. We have to get rid of that as quickly as possible." The 94-85 win in braunschweig at the end of the first half last weekend seemed to be a step in the right direction, but was promptly followed by a setback in peristeri.
