the thing with The food on the Coach has done so until Further notice. "Maybe it's enough at least for a dessert," said Marvin Plattenhardt on Saturday evening with a pained Smile. "But we have to show a reaction." After the 1:2 VfB Stuttgart left-back knew of Hertha BSC as well as his team-mates: Without a Revolution of all mathematical principles, it is now, after the next defeat against a relegation candidate, up to the Christmas break, nothing more to be with the officially proclaimed target of seven points from three Games. "We have to accept now," said Plattenhardt, "even if it is difficult in this game." In coach Pal Dardai would have been attracted to his own statement, like the big spender.
So the Hungarian had given up talking the Morning after about the puzzles, which occurs in Stuttgart, Germany – more precisely: the appearance in mid – term two. It was to explain "difficult", what had happened there, opened Dardai his analysis. "Body language, two fighting attitude – that was not this greed that shows me: I want to achieve something," he said. Finally, he summed up the experience with four words aptly: "We were too reckless." Or, as Fabian Lustenberger to the Protocol were: "It's not like that Stuttgart had played on the wall."
Herthas defeat at VfB was difficult to accept, especially as they followed a well-known scheme, which also could not deny Plattenhardt. "Whenever we have the Chance, at the very top tie, we pack it," he said, "we need to get the heads out." And Lustenberger added: "it hurts."
What have built up the Berlin with the much – acclaimed results – such as the home wins over Bayern, Mönchengladbach and Frankfurt, or the point when undefeated winter Champions Dortmund-weary, a tear, along with lapses in Düsseldorf, or in Stuttgart this reliably. "That was incredibly naive," said Dardai, "you see truly rare." Basically a single action – the 1:1 compensation was enough to bring Mario Gomez – the Berlin completely from the concept. "There's nobody on the square, takes the matter in Hand," said Dardai.
Hertha is not a substitute for Marko Grujic
Who was meant to be, it was not difficult to guess: the injured Marko Grujic, which is to be replaced in the new Hertha-System with two tops hard to come by. Or you do not need to determine perhaps even: do?
"Marko has played the last games super and showed how important he can be for us. He would have done us very well today,“ said Plattenhardt. In addition to the Serbs, the second scheduled sixes, Arne Maier, was in the short term, did not make things easier – although the Backups, Per Skjelbred and Vladimir Darida did at least impress in the first 45 minutes. "We had to be unusual to replace a lot of players," said Dardai, "we failed this time." In addition to Maier and Grujic also Salomon Kalou, Niklas lacked Strong, Karim Rekik and Derrick Luckassen. For the Berlin squad, has won in the past years, obviously, in quality, are simply to many great names, even if Dardai this Argument after the Stuttgart game just wanted to acknowledge.
recovery is not in sight. For the home game against FC Augsburg on Tuesday evening Dardai expected to be no returnees. He will need to with the staff to get along, which has disgraced itself in Stuttgart, well, at least a little bit. Therefore, the Trainer is now on the home strength of his team: Only the Dortmund from Dortmund (22), and Mönchengladbach (21) and RB Leipzig (17) have brought in this season more points at home than in Berlin (14).More about

"I hope for a good, loud crowd as we have seen it in Stuttgart," says Dardai, "this is our only Chance." When it comes to the coach, it must be on Tuesday to stay with his dinner bet with the team – not a treat. Dardai says: "Win is enough for me."
