Even year without a summer tournament and big screen - thank you Qatar!

Tough times for football junkies Qatar not only tramples on human rights, but also our right to a summer in front of the big screen.

A comment.

Will Felix Magath save Hertha and thus his reputation as a coach for particularly difficult cases?

Will HSV become a second division dino by losing promotion at the last minute, as usual?

And the never-boring lions from the 3rd division: do they claw the consolation prize and book their next adventure in the DFB Cup as fourth in the table?

Essentially, these are the questions that football fans are asking before the season finale in the top three divisions.

The big decisions have been made, the small issues are at least good for sweetening a rainy weekend.

The real horror, however - it threatens afterwards!

Many will have repressed it, the bitter truth: We have an even year, but we will not spend June (and the first days of July) as usual in the beer garden in front of the big screen.

Not only does Qatar trample on human rights, they also trample on our right to a summer of football that shortens the time between league seasons.

Sure, there are now the relegations, a cup duel of counter-drafts in Berlin (Freiburger Herz vs. Leipziger Geld), plus the next EURO party in Frankfurt.

But what if the final of the Europa League is played (May 18) and Klopp (or Ancelotti) has also been crowned king of the premier class (May 28)?

The great emptiness - it will catch up with us sooner than we football spectators realize.

It fits into our time that nothing is as it should be.

And as it is, where there are losers (all World Cup fans), there are also winners.

The Nations League this summer is likely to experience an unimagined influx of spectators, and the qualifying rounds for the European Cups are not only of interest to betting enthusiasts and professional gamblers.

It is conceivable that the professional clubs will also be accompanied to their summer training camps by more fans than usual.

Yes, and after that it would soon be done.


The good thing about the Winter World Cup: All leagues start earlier than usual, and the lower houses start as early as mid-July.

And what should please the many traditional clubs that have been promoted this year: The usual autumn crises can be discussed this year away from the media interest, the first coaches can be fired halfway noiselessly.

After all, the World Cup is in November.

A second summer break, so to speak - at a time when things are otherwise turbulent.

Crazy football world!
