The crowd of 15290 turning up at VfL EISENJOE Arena today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Bogdan Tudoran was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Javier Parra and Juris Cimbaļuks. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and EISENJOE formed up in a 5-4-1 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Cleven - Etschberger, Bombelka, Engelseck, Ossenbrook, Baldan - Oberdorfer, Ladendorf, Baster, Deutschendorf - Liedbom.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Eversten prefers a 5-3-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Paraska - da Lagoa, Schickmyar, Aakerman, Furmans, Bramfeld - Haaning, Figan, Martí - Elmose, Figueiredo Cardoso.

Using their supernatural counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for EISENJOE today. For their match strategy, Eversten had decided to use their titanic ability to counter-attack whenever possible. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Eversten's M. Aakerman finally got himself booked for a foul. EISENJOE made a bid to take the lead as a ball coming in on the right hand side left K. Oberdorfer completely alone with keeper E. Paraska, who made a spectacular block. The guests took the lead 42 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in B. Haaning scoring to make it 0 - 1. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Eversten would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

L. Furmans will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from T. Figan after 58 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 0 - 2 will assuage him a bit, though. While the mud made for some stunning slide tackles, it robbed the crowd of witnessing M. Etschberger's breathtaking speed. With 80 minutes gone, W. Schickmyar suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counter-attack by Eversten caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. Neither team was controlling possession at this point in the match.

Most important EISENJOE player was H. Baster. Good thing W. Deutschendorf isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. T. Figueiredo Cardoso performed admirably for Eversten. Speaking of stinking up the place, E. Paraska sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 0 - 2.
