Union 1 Schalke 1. Schalke were bloody lucky to score with effectively their only shot on target. Union should have gone in at HT at least 3 goals to the good.
Anyhow... there was a bit of noise from somewhere, maybe the subs/medical staff were having a bit of a sing song. I understand when the PL resumes it will have 'sound effects'?
Footy on TV behind closed doors is... a bit pants.
But it's better than nothing and I still enjoyed this afternoons German football.
Yeah that was quite a big point there for Union. One more win should see them safe now. Should have won though. It's interesting that the trend of away team winning shows little sign of easing up. That's definitely something to watch out for when the Prem comes back. If we go another season without fans I wonder if teams will try some tricks to increase levels of home advantage - letting the grass grow or putting in minimum/maximum pitch dimensions.
I thought the piped in atmosphere thing would be complete nonense but I have to be honest and say that the game I enjoyed most was Dortmund v Bayern because watched a US broadcast of it that did exactly that. It was a bit like a computer game with the crowd noises responsive to the action. It was obviously nothing like the real thing but I'm a bit embarrassed to admint that it definitely improved my experience of the game. I obviously have some kind of pavlov's dog reaction to crowd noise. It clearly felt real to me on some level despite constantly telling myself that it clearly wasn't. Maybe that wears off in time and it comes predicatble. A weird experience but I'd be lying if I was that I didn't prefer it to the eerie silence.
Yay! Cologne 1 Union Berlin 2 and almost certain to stay up now. I've enjoyed the German football behind closed doors. Agree that a bit of artificial background noise might help when the premiers*** starts again.
