Eintracht Frankfurt Has More Room for Improvement in 2015
After Eintracht Frankfurt finished 13th in the 2013 – 2014 Bundesliga, most soccer fans didn’t expect much out of the club for the 2014 – 2015 season. After all, while the team has won the Germany’s top flight football title before (once, in 1959), they’ve struggled a fair amount since then. In fact, just a few years ago, in 2011 – 2012, the Eagles were relegated to the second division. They fought their way back, and even finished in sixth place in the premier division the next year, but that was the closest fans could get to seeing the Eintracht Frankfurt football kit on the Bundesliga podium in nearly 20 years.
With all of those things considered, it’s pretty impressive that the Eagles ended 2014 in ninth place on the league table. However, the club has more room for improvement in 2015, and you can help bring it out by picking up a new Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015 at Soccer Box. Who knows, perhaps some extra fan support will help bring out the best in this promising football squad.
The 2014 – 2015 Season so Far
Those, who were paying attention during the summer months, saw how much potential the Eintracht squad had. The club won the majority of the friendly fixtures it played during the summer and continued to win them even after 2014 – 2015 competition had begun.
Unfortunately, the potential exuded in those winning friendlies has not exactly transferred over to Bundesliga competition. Sure, the wearers of the Eintracht Frankfurt football kit have scored some big wins. For instance, on November 22nd, they upset Borussia Monchengladbach—in an away match, no less. Monchengladbach has been a top five contender in the Bundesliga all season long, but the Eagles beat them handily, winning the soccer match 3-1.
A week later, they achieved another big win, donning the Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015 and taking on Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund, of course, was the runner-up in Germany’s top division last year, behind only Bayern Munich. And while Dortmund has struggled lately, a 2-0 win over them was still a big moment for the Frankfurt home squad.
Points-wise, the club’s biggest victory of the fall was a November 30th triumph over Werder Bremen. Another home game, the fixture ended 5-2 in favor of the Eintracht Frankfurt. Four of those five goals were scored in the second half, making for one of the most exciting bursts of football action on 2014—in any country or any league.
Losses and Disappointments
While they’ve seen their fair share of exciting triumphs this season, though, fans in the Eintracht Frankfurt football kit have also been forced to watch some tough losses.
Worst of all was a 0-4 home loss against Bayern Munich—a crushing loss that could have been demoralizing to any football fan base. Almost as bad, though, was an October 25th home game with Stuttgart, which ended with a score of 4-5.
The Stuttgart match was so disappointing because, on numerous occasions, it looked as if the Eagles had the momentum on their side. First, defender Alexander Madlung gave fans in the Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015 reason to cheer by scoring the inaugural goal of the match.
The initial momentum was tarnished somewhat when Stuttgart delivered three unanswered goals in a row. But then, supporters in the Eintracht home kit had another reason to cheer when their team scored three more goals of their own in the space of eight minutes. It looked as if the Eagles were going to win the game, but a failure of the home squad’s defense allowed Stuttgart to hit the net two more times in the last 10 minutes of the match. It was a disappointing loss if there ever was one.
Still, all of these games have shown that Frankfurt has a lot of potential. The team’s star player, midfielder Alexander Meier, is the top goal scorer of the entire 2014 – 2015 Bundesliga. He’s even ahead of world-renowned strikers like Thomas Muller—a fact that simply can’t be ignored going into 2015.
Can Meier help his team to a top five league finish this year? We won’t find out much until the team resumes competitive play at the end of January, but in the meantime, you can stop by Soccer Box and pick up a new Eintracht Frankfurt football kit. Whether you are looking for the home kit or the away shirt, this is the place to find them.
