Mr Mayer, you began the Premier League season with two defeats. How is the environment within the staff?
We did not actually know the place we have been till the season. Then we misplaced 29-31 in a very good recreation at house to TSV Heiningen. Last week we had a very good relationship with relegated TSV Blaustein after which misplaced very clearly 29:40. These two losses do not put us out or make us really feel dangerous, nevertheless it exhibits that we will sustain.
Why is it not going effectively thus far?
One of the explanations for this is the massive shakeup. We had a troublesome preparation with six departures and three new gamers who needed to combine. It solely takes a bit time for the staff to seek out one another.
In addition, the Oberliga is a very large problem this season.
You can undoubtedly say that the standard of the groups is the identical as the previous few years, we have at all times had a couple of third division groups. The dimension of the league, with 18 groups and 34 match days, is one other story. Something else is coming our means. Our squad has been decreased which suggests it will likely be a troublesome lengthy season. There shouldn’t be many accidents.
However, the lengthy season implies that TuS Steißlingen have extra time to catch up after early defeats like final yr.
If you have a look at final yr, it is true (laughs) All groups have a giant league drawback. Due to the lengthy season, lots might be determined by the tip of this yr. It will depend on who is holding the lengthy breath. Last yr within the interim dash we proved we might do it.
Why was your staff capable of stand once more?
Because we have been collectively on the core of the staff, regardless of being away lots. Many gamers have been right here for a number of years and we’ve additionally strengthened our staff with new gamers. With staff spirit and the help of the viewers in our corridor, we’ll do it once more.
If it would not work out, will you keep loyal to TuS as a Steisling native?
This is not a phrase. Steislingen will stay my membership till I cease enjoying handball.
