Mr Mayer, you began the Premier League season with two defeats. How is the ambiance within the group?
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 unhealthy, nevertheless it exhibits that we will sustain.
Why is it not going effectively up to now?
One of the explanations for this is the massive shakeup. We had a tough preparation with six departures and three new gamers who needed to combine. It solely takes a bit of time for the group to seek out one another.
In addition, the Oberliga is a very massive problem this season.
You can positively say that the standard of the groups is the identical as the previous couple of years, we have all the time had a number 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 approach. Our squad has been diminished which implies will probably be a tricky 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 take a look at final yr, it is true (laughs) All groups have a giant league downside. Due to the lengthy season, so much will likely be determined by the top of this yr. It relies on who is holding the lengthy breath. Last yr within the interim dash we proved we may do it.
Why was your group in a position to stand once more?
Because we have been collectively on the core of the group, regardless of being away so much. Many gamers have been right here for a number of years and now we have additionally strengthened our group with new gamers. With group spirit and the assist of the viewers in our corridor, we are going to 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 taking part in handball.
