Sometimes he complained, sometimes he gesticulated wildly, not to mention loud and clear instructions. He seemed to be clearly displeased with what his proteges brought to the geesdorf pitch against the second-last team in the table from lichtenfels. And he seemed to agree with the spectators, who also had little positive to say about the muden 1:1 draw. After the final whistle and a few minutes of pause, FC player-coach jannik feidel knew how to assess what he had seen: "of course we had hoped for more. But we looked stable throughout the game and always tried to run the ball and create chances."
With both the 23-year-old was right. Only the fubballspielen succeeded only rarely. The hosts all too often did not bring the necessary tempo into their ball forward, often held the leather too long or simply passed too often. Also the runs were not always right, which feidel attributed to the fact that he had to make three changes compared to the previous week, when simon weiglein, fabio feidel and luca fischer had been in the starting line-up.
Thus, the home side had problems against massive standing and consistently defending lichtenfelser, who had conceded a whopping 25 goals in their previous eight games, to come to dangerous conclusions. Vincent held, who also had a weak game and rarely played an active role in the geesdorf game, hardly received any useful passes and hung in the air for almost the entire 90 minutes. Only once in the first half did the black-and-whites get him into position, and that promptly led to the opening goal. Held had asserted himself on the left wing, got rid of two opponents and passed sharply into the center. It took niclas staudt three attempts against keeper christoph kraus and daniel schardt, but he finally got the ball over the line.
However, little was to change in the course of the game. The guests, who in the initial phase by the agile christopher schaller quite had been able to go into the lead, remained stable and set again and again smaller needle pricks. One of them led to a corner ball that the home side could not clear and martin hellmuth slid in the free ball in the penalty area to level the score. "They come here and just play structured fubball. Thus they came to two, three actions, from which also the corner arises. We have to show more presence here," feidel said.
Because the upper franconians seemed to be able to live well with the point and hardly gave away any space near the goal into which the geesdorfer could have pushed. Jannik feidel's blocked shot from the edge of the penalty area (43).) or ibrima saine's distance attempt after a fine solo remained the only noteworthy opportunities (61.). Even when the guests, who had to pay tribute to their high level of play in the final phase, ran out of steam, they lacked the necessary penetrating power. Vincent held's header after feidel's free kick was deflected over the goal (77).). And the last scene of the game also fit the picture. Niclas staudt had seen vincent held in the middle. But the attacker missed the moment of play and the chance was lost.
Of course, feidel was not satisfied that his own team did not know how to convert their higher individual and playful quality into a victory. Nevertheless, the training manager once again put the performance of his troops into perspective. Against more offensive opponents like jungst hochberg, it was easier to find the space and create opportunities. "In games like this, the vote has to be right, the score has to be right. But this is a development process that we have not yet completed," says the escherndorf native. And third place with 18 points is quite respectable, even if not everything works out as hoped.
