The relegated as Favorites – manage Berlin, Cologne and Kaiserslautern return? The new season in the second League, which again promises ample voltage begins three weeks before the Bundesliga season starts, 2012/13. Many renowned clubs in the 2nd Bundesliga, which can be expected again many close games and no less concise decisions about promotion and relegation cavort not least due to the relegation of the 1st FC Cologne, Hertha BSC Berlin and FC Kaiserslautern. When the speech on the rise, especially the three relegated as favorites are called. Also most experts write to St. Pauli and the TSV 1860 Munchen opportunities on one of the first three places only the FC. Probably a surprise team among the Favorites will join but also this year again, as last year the SC Paderborn, played with the long top and past affording five close to the relegation at the end of rank.
Who can prevail in the end, will depend on many factors. At the relegated much of it will depend how quickly that formed new teams under find their new coaches. Hertha BSC in the opening match against Paderborn (2-2) has shown that still not all wheel mesh. In the course of the first round you should play with but above how Elias Kachunga or Nico Schulz to have better acclimatized and the team of coach Jos Luhukay is brought supports Peer Kluge and Sami Allagui as well as talent. (Similarly see: Southwest Airlines). Whether this also manages the 1st FC Cologne, remains questionable despite the euphoria unleashed by coach Holger Stanislawski. The goat bucks have lost some support among other things with Sascha Riether, Lukas Podolski and Milivoje Novakovic and financial reasons other performers such as Pedro Geromel and Michael Rensing will no longer be used. So, the hopes of the Cologne fans on many young players such as keeper Timo Horn rest the Austrian U21 internationals Kevin Wimmer or Sweden’s young striker Mikael Ishak.
Whether it enough above along with a few experienced professionals for all, remains to be seen. Increase especially in the offensive of the 1st FC Kaiserslautern must of this, Mohamadou Idrissou and Albert Bunjaku brought experienced forces. The new coach Franco Foda can put differently as in the attack on a well-rehearsed band, who confessed to her husband in the Bundesliga because of offensive weakness but could not prevent relegation. Idrissou, Barber and also returnees Ilian Micanski expectations, the FCK could certainly return to the Bundesliga. The long-suffering fans of the TSV 1860 Munchen, the important players like Stefan Aigner and Kevin Volland hope after eight years lost, for it but get a number of seasoned pros such as the Greek international Grigoris Makos or attacking ALLROUNDER Moritz Stoppelkamp has. Remains finally the Favorites St. Pauli, who won four in the last year and can build on a largely played Elf still FC. To submit a tip would be hard because too much can happen in the course of a season. Nor should, for example, the fixed acting last year promoted Dynamo Dresden and Eintracht Braunschweig Union Berlin disregard also of Paderborn or the 1 FC. (Johannes Ketterl)
