Planegg - Andreas Budell is not to be envied for his job. The SV Planegg-Krailling II trainer is expected to do nothing other than to make it into the class with his team. Even the coach is not kidding himself. "It won't be easy for us," he says. Budell is convinced that the coming months will be faced with major challenges. So far, his team has not been up to the challenge. In the 13 matches of the first half of the season, she managed to collect just ten points. The table of the district class 3 leads the SVP to the 13th and penultimate place. If the team continues on the spot, Budell can look after them in the A-Class next season. "The goal is to stay in the class," the coach clarifies. It is about nothing less than staying in the league.
If his team could only focus on themselves, it wouldn't be a problem. The safe bank on which SV Aubing's reserve is currently located is just one point away. It is also only a stone's throw away from TSV Graefelfing II and SV Munich Laim II, who only won two or three points more than the Planegger. As in the first half of the season, Budell has to look at how the first set is doing in their endeavor to make it into the district league. It goes without saying that he has to help out with staff if the situation demands it. In the first half of the season, this obligation ensured that Budell always competed with another colorfully mixed team. 31 goals testify that the talents from the A-youth and the experienced from the AH did their duty with all due seriousness. But 56 goals conceded make it clear that a defense must have well-established mechanisms if it wants to compactly counter the opponent.
So far, Budell and Michael Lelleck, coaches of the district league eleven, have had the players from the first and second teams trained together. However, the visit to the practice sessions was not always abundant. "It doesn't quite fit yet," admits Budell. He would have liked more responsibility from his soccer players. Because the problems of the reserve are also the old ones in the new year. A few players are missing due to holidays or injuries, which is why Budell cannot experiment very well in the test games because he lacks the alternatives on the bench.
The strategy for the coming weeks is therefore clear. Planegg's reserve will - given the conditions - not be able to initiate a general turnaround, but will have to strike at certain points. "We have to be there for the important games," demands the coach. Above all, his team should top up their points account against the competition from the lower half of the table. Whether this will be successful can already be seen at the start of the second half against the SV München Laim reserve. With a win, the Planegger can climb up to tenth in the table. In the event of a defeat, another competitor in the battle for relegation slowly disappears out of reach.
