Swedish waterways

The view from our hotel on the waters off Stockholm was fantastic. Behind a small, romantic island with two cottages attracted the large ferries and cruise ships its course on the way to Stockholm. Quiet and majestic they passed.

But then came the little noisy vehicles. Boats with 1OM length made more noise than the ferry on the image.

Really loud it was at night on weekends. The positive noise came opposite the Hafenkneipe. The one really good live band had, We also came to their enjoyment. But later in the evening I was then aware, why you do not live on a main road. The noise neagtive. The waterways around Stockholm are on weekends namely a main road: yachts, Motor boats and jet skis from all drove back and forth. All with Full Speed ​​and Full Noise. At about two o'clock in the morning it was then but annoyed me and I shut the window.

The archipelago extends the way good 20-30 km vor Stockholm. Coach Conny could not believe it and ran in a break off, to see the sea. But as far as she ran on our island, more than the next islands were out of sight…

Women as referee

In the WWC 2010 only women were employed as referee.

In Germany, women are as referee to high for GFL a familiar sight. A completely female crew members, there were sometimes even in one or the other Ladies Bowl. Still, this is even an unusual sight for German.

Peter Springwald chose the German women hand. All from the GFL pool and football and Officiating expect from high level. Except for the small Patzer: “Personal Foul by Number Elf, AHH, Number Elf” only we could interpret German, the performance of our women was also good.

Before the World Cup, the referees had to first agree on uniform Mechanics. Unlike the rules NCAA cooperation of the referee is not regulated the same everywhere.

During the World Cup the referees two of the best EFAF referees were placed on their side. This constantly checked the performance of referees. In addition to the feedback at half time the errors were analyzed and corrected The next day using the special referee game videos.

Whether the performance of the referees to meet the international requirements, the two men EFAF will surely decide.

I would like some feedback on a different question:

Must be women at a women's World Cup all referees?

  • PRO
    Within the framework of equality and women should have the opportunity, to whistle world championships. In football this is handled the same way. Referees cope better on the field with the women.
    The players deserve the best referees, regardless of gender. A good referee will never have a whistle Men World Championships, but always needs to Women World Cup

It's not about the performance of the referees at the World Cup, but basically the facts.
Your opinion you can about the comments are leave.

that Sweetheart…

Our Defense Line player Birgit swing was indeed one of the “big attractions” the World Cup. With 196 cm, it was not to be overlooked.

Even her imposing figure one way or another antagonist already brought up a sweat. You can not let it, still playing with the enemy psychological games. Against Sweden she came onto the field, planted himself in front of the center, looked into her eyes and said,: “that Sweetheart?”. Until her counterpart eyes could no longer stand up and looked at the floor.

From the perspective of a fan

It is early morning of 28.06.2010 when 5 make drowsy Hurricanes on their way to Sweden. The luggage we already checked on the eve. The boarding starts on time and so the plane starts to to short 08:30 AM Frankfurt.

The landing in sunny Stockholm against 10:00 Pm and the mood is good. The anticipation will come to what is huge. With the rainbow bus takes us then to central Stockholm. The hotel is a mix of grandma's living room and IKEA.

the rooms are quickly confiscated, only thrown in summer clothes and off you go to the team hotel. after about. 45 Minutes with the public we arrive at Nirvana Sweden. From the bus station to the hotel it aloud sign 50 Meter. It has to be another measure of length, because the hotel we reach only after 10 minutes. There we meet like the team from Finland. it tingles, soon the first World Cup starts. As we meet the German national team, We are warmly welcomed. But much time has not, the schedule of the players and coaches is tight. In the evening is still a training session in the stadium at Zinkensdamm.

29.06.2010 - "Good morning. Stockholm" The sun is shining since 03:00 Uhr. But thanks sleeping mask is the GAR NO PROBLEM! Noch 5 Hours to get us the first game (Austria vs. Finland) look at. In the evening, the first time is then sounded the German national anthem. To play our neighbors are already ca. 20 Germany fans in the stadium and cheer.

Together, we are preparing for the arrival of our national team. When the bus against 16:00 PM pulls up to sound the vuvuzelas and the team will be made loudly in reception. Visibly moved, the coaches and players walk a while and feel Laola. It also run one or the other tears of joy, without naming names.

It is 17:50 enter clock as the teams into the stadium. The mood among the fans is good, the pulse is greatly increased and it tingles all over my body. When the national anthem is heard singing about 50 Germany fans loudly with. Delighted with the performance of the girls on the field the fans with all his force cheer. The vuvuzelas horns and roar of the stadium, so that one does not understand his own words. After the actual announcer speaks only Swedish is found quickly a German stadium spokeswoman with megaphone among fans. Beautiful scenes with comments like "VERY, VERY NICE "underlined and not caught balls is calmed with the words" GAR NO PROBLEM!“. Thank you Kathi. In the end Germany wins 14:00 against Sweden. This makes joy more.

The next day, the players 2 Hours of free time and you meet in Stockholm City for fun and sightseeing. Once the team is gone we make a harbor cruise. It goes past the castle, Old Town, Södermalm und Stockholm City. after nearly 2 we put hours back in the game- and destination port on. Understanding: In the summer months, a vacation home would be great, in winter it is particularly the north of Sweden shun, otherwise you run the risk of no daylight to see. This also explains the high suicide rate in the Nordic countries, but only at the margins.

Am 01.07.2010 is the second group match of the Germans and this time, some fans paint the letter "SCHLAAAAAAAND" on the belly and present the work during the national anthem.

First, Germany does not take into the game and quickly gets into arrears. However, after the 1. Quarter woke up the girls and are linked to the performance of the first game. After the halftime shows of the German Defense no getting past, but unfortunately it is impossible for the team to win the game even more. Knapp, Germany Canada has to admit defeat. It is thus clear, Germany plays on Saturday against the loser of the following match between Finland and USA.

The grandstand fills gradually. Shortly before entering the teams from Finland and the US sit next to the fans all participating teams in the stands. At the end USA won clearly with 72:00. But the Finns offer more resistance than the result, it can be guessed. Both teams shine through strong pass- and running game and tackle scenes.

Now it was clear, it would be a tough game against Finland to court 3 be on Saturday. But on Friday were again 2 Hours off the national team. This time we spend time at the sea, right next to the team hotel. During the lunch, and the next theory lesson of the team we enjoy the great weather and cool us in the water (stark) from. At the end of the day some of us have a healthy lobster pink, but that's GAR NO PROBLEM.

Saturday, 03.07.2010, only a few hours to the match for third place 3. Before Austria takes on Sweden for third place 5 und 6. Scene of the day / the World Cup, an Austrian interception should be, up in the end zone carries the the ball. Unfortunately it was the wrong end zone and thus the Swedes over more pleased 2 Points on the scoreboard. (Note the Redation: The two points were missing the Oester Eicher inside at the end. It ended 18:20)

14:50 Uhr: Inlet Team. 14:55 Uhr: The national anthem is heard. 15:00 Uhr: kickoff Germany. As in the game against Canada, the Germans found not initially into play. Finland achieved quickly the first points and a victory of the Germans seems hopeless. To the 2. Quarter but it looks even better. The first touchdown for Germany and shortly after the break succeed the next touchdown. The team is now completely changed and marched as a bulwark by the Finnish Line. In an exciting final sprint Germany still comes once in possession. It stands 18:26 Finland and it is still 1 to play minutes. The offense tried on passing towards the end zone, but at the 20-yard line is closing and possession changes at 4 Seconds on the game clock.

In a few months, to 2 Tryouts and only one collective training before the World Cup there have 45 Spielerinnen, managed behind the scenes to stomp the coaches and the hard-working helpers the first women's team from the ground.

Despite all doubts and despite many negative votes in advance they all pulled together and have grown into a team. It is a big step for women's football and I am glad to have been a fan a part of this World Cup.

But there were still Steffen and Marco, the yes have no inhibitions and (health most reprehensible) just so reinstürtzen! tztz…

Back to life!

Ja, and, and….

wieder back to life, back to reality! Life caught up with me again. To 10 Days of isolation in an old sports boarding school and a beautifully located hotel, reality has me again. Less than seven hours after arriving in Frankfurt, and less than four hours after I went to bed, my alarm clock rang and I had to jump from my feathers to do my day's work.

Everything is still a bit surreal…I really was only 10 Tage out of space? It seems so much more to me. So much has passed me…I was a little scared, when I read in the newspaper today, as our new Federal President is called. Wasn't just the debate about the candidates?

I still seem slightly irradiated. My colleagues are surprised, when I am haphazardly in the office and looking for my calendar to coordinate my appointments independently. Sometimes I am inclined to take flipchart paper and hang my daily routine clearly. I read on Facebook, that others feel the same way. It means quickly again “grown up” to become, and from the “passive role” to come and plan life again independently. Even if it was pleasant, to shut down the brain sometimes.

What is left of them 10 Days World Cup? A mixed feeling. Great moments, goose bumps, but also disappointments and tears about personal and athletic performance. However, the pride of fighting to the end prevails. Not to have stuck my head in the sand and to have had a good show.

Christiane wrote it before. I was a popular photo subject. Quite exciting to be in the spotlight like this. Even before our first game, two Austrians came up to me, to ask me sheepishly, whether you can speak to me. Of course they can. Almost frozen with fear, they ask holes in my stomach, which I also willingly answer. After the game against Sweden, I will be intercepted again by Austria. This time the ladies have a request. You want to be photographed with me. Well, I'm ready for that too. It won't be the only and last time, where I'm asked to take a photo. Our bus driver describes himself as my biggest fan and gets a photo. A Canadian coach engages me in discussions about my football career; Canada and Finland still get some photos on the last evening, to be able to prove at home, that they actually had to fight such giants; and the girls from the USA are amazed and enthusiastic, don't believe me, that I'm actually so slow, as I say. But what I like best is the nickname, that Austria gave me. For them, my name is just “Germinator” like Herminator or Terminator. (*.*)b

My size was not an attraction in Stockholm alone, As I have heard, the commentators want to couple me up and offered the audience to get my mobile number if interested. What should I think of that??
