Mr Mayer, you began the Premier League season with two defeats. How is the ambiance within the workforce?
We did not actually know the place we have been till the season. Then we misplaced 29-31 in recreation at dwelling to TSV Heiningen. Last week we had 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, however it reveals that we are able to sustain.
Why is it not going properly thus far?
One of the explanations for this is the large 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 workforce to search 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 couple of years, we have all the time had just a few 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 lowered 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 might be determined by the top of this yr. It is determined by who is holding the lengthy breath. Last yr within the interim dash we proved we may do it.
Why was your workforce in a position to stand once more?
Because we have been collectively on the core of the workforce, regardless of being away so much. Many gamers have been right here for a number of years and now we have additionally strengthened our workforce with new gamers. With workforce spirit and the help of the viewers in our corridor, we’ll do it once more.
If it does 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.
