    The league matches haven't started again yet, but they're playing again, even if indoors only. And there is transfer news, too. So let's finally start this year's thread!

    The first piece of news is really no news at all: Birgit Prinz will not be returning to Frankfurt. (Did anyone seriously think she would even consider it?)

    She has signed with 2nd league club Hoffenheim instead, and she'll indeed be cleared to play for them in league matches. But she'll be focusing on working in sports psychology for the club, presumably beyond the women's football section.

    In other news, Sara Däbritz, from last year's promising U17 national team, has signed with my Freiburgers, and Melanie Leupolz from that same team has extended her contract.

    Duisburg won one of the indoors cups that were played last weekend, beating Frankfurt in a penalty shootout in the final. Another cup, with all 1st league clubs participating, will be played in Magdeburg next weekend.

    Uschi Holl, the no. 2 in the German goal until last summer and currently the goalie who's making the difference at her new club Essen-Schönebeck, will be retiring from football at the end of this season to focus on her banking career. (Interview with dfb.de, in German)

    I'm keeping my eyes open, but I haven't seen anything yet. :confused:

    Meanwhile, Simone Laudehr will be out for a while after a meniscus surgery scheduled for next week.

    could be that she ended up going to Sweden after all.

    Actually, I knew I'd seen the name somewhere... and now I've found it again: Frauenfussball Schweden reported last week that she told a Piteå newspaper that she was negotiating with Piteå IF.

    This reminds all of us that these girls, unlike men, can't always afford to dedicate the most of their lifetime to football.

    I have to say that, although somehow sad, this makes them much more "human" in my eyes. :p

    Micol, so you started the new thread and you didn't even warn me? And you chose "fever"? No fishnet frenzied fun festival? :confused:

    This thread is for the serious stuff. The fun festival will have to be celebrated in Eurotrash. ;)

    The initial report is a partial tear of the MCL.

    Raaaats. The latest report is torn MCL and ACL. She'll be out at least 6-8 months.:(

    Yes, missing the full season, including London Olympics. :(
    I really feel for her.

    That's the risk of having to play with teams below amateur level... I mean, obviously a defender playing in a team losing 14-0 doesn't know how to step in without seriously harming her opponent. :mad:

    Concacaf should step up and suspend the player as the referee didn't produce the red card. Unbelievable to be allowed to break somebody's knee and get nothing.

    it sounds very high-class from Ali that apparently she didn't spit out any rancorous word for the butcher-girl who did that to her. She said she didn't wish that to anyone, but basically she concluded on the likes of: "injuries happen, that's football" (see article below):

    Oh no. :eek: Yesterday's "partial MCL tear" made me hope it wasn't that bad after all.

    And the US would certainly have won that match even with 10 players, so she didn't even need to step on the field. :rolleyes:

    Shame for her and the Olympics - and, since we're in the Bundesliga thread here, it's a big blow for Frankfurt too. They've got a couple of good defenders now, but Ali is a much needed starter.

    (One of Frankfurt defenders is Valeria Kleiner, who suffered a knee injury in 2010 and is still not back on the field. One more surgery, she says, and then things should be fine...)

    Jena have signed Croatian international Iva Landeka, who used to play for Polish champion Racibórz (the club Cloppenburg also pinched their Polish players from).

    I try to avoid watching replays of injuries but iirc the tackle that came in was studs up, straight leg, foot raised to knee level, and late. No whistle from the ref (not to mention a card). There is video out there if folks want to see for them selves...

    Wow - where have I been that I missed the Krieger thing? :eek: This definitely isn't good for the Evil Empire.

    EDIT: Worked it out eventually - haven't been subscribed to the thread :rolleyes:.

    so, they're going now for the 2nd half of this season or in the summer w/ a pre-contract already agreed? My question is based on google translate using "upcoming season" for der kommenden Saison and my own confusion as to what that means. /language dunce

    As from the summer.
    And the deal is certainly money and possibly job prospects beyond football.
