Eintracht Frankfurt Hits Rough Patch in 2014 – 2015 Soccer Season
The 2014 – 2015 soccer season started out brilliantly for Eintracht Frankfurt. Not only did the football squad win its first match in this year’s DFB Pokal competition, but they also spent the first seven weeks of Bundesliga play amassing a solid record of 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses. That’s markedly better than the 2013 – 2014 season start, where the Eagles lost three of its first four matches, and took 16 weeks of play to grab a third victory. In fact, the strong commencement to 2014 – 2015 was enough to win some new fans over to the side of the Eintracht Frankfurt soccer jersey.
Indeed, Soccer Box was one of the outfits to hop on the Eintracht bandwagon this fall! We have officially added the club’s merchandise to our store, including the red and black Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015. We also carry the squad’s plain white and black away soccer jersey. Nike produces both versions of the shirt.
A Turn for the Worse
Unfortunately, even all of the new supporters haven’t been able to help the Eagles maintain the forward momentum they had in the first seven weeks of competition. A pair of rough Bundesliga losses—a 3-1 away loss to Paderborn and a 5-4 home defeat against Stuttgart—caused the club to drop down the standings table of Germany’s top football league.
The Stuttgart Match
The Paderborn loss didn’t show Eintracht at their highest level of football play. However, the Stuttgart home match was still an exciting and entertaining one. Football fans filled Frankfurt’s Commerzbank-Arena, wearing the Eintracht Frankfurt soccer jersey and cheering the home shirt team toward one of the most competitive matches of the 2014 – 2015 Bundesliga.
The two football teams looked quite evenly matched throughout the game, with the momentum shifting between the home and away jersey squads for the duration of play. Frankfurt was the first on the board, thanks to a goal from defender Alexander Madlung at the 21-minute mark.
Unfortunately, Stuttgart responded quickly. First, forward Martin Harnik delivered a quick pair of goals—one at 34 minutes and the other at 36—to give his team a sudden lead. Another point from midfielder Christian Gentner made the score 3-1 just minutes into the second half. Needless to say, fans in the Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015 were feeling a bit uneasy.
But then the Eagles fired back. A 57th-minute goal from Alexander Meijer reignited the Frankfurt momentum, and within the next eight minutes, Eintracht regained the lead. A goal from Stefan Aigner tied the game, while a second score for Madlung made the score 4-3 in favor of the Eagles.
Stuttgart would score two more goals in less than five minutes (one at 81 and one at 84) to take a 5-4 lead that the home team couldn’t break. Home players and supporters alike were left to slink off the field and out of the stadium, wearing the Eintracht Frankfurt soccer jersey in dejected disappointment.
DFB Pokal Trouble
Sadly, the disappointment continued in an October 29th DFB Pokal match against the Borussia Mönchengladbach jersey. Fans once again turned up at Commerzbank-Arena wearing the Eintracht Frankfurt home shirt 2014 – 2015, and were once again treated to a narrow one-point loss.
However, this time there weren’t as many offensive fireworks on the home side. Borussia shut Eintracht out for the first 88 minutes of play, with one goal each in the first and second halves that made it look like the fixture was going to end 2-0. A last-minute point by team forward Vaclav Kadlec put the squad on the board, but the fixture still ended up as a loss for the squad.
The defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach means that Frankfurt won’t advance to the third round of the 2014 – 2015 DFB Pokal. However, the team does still have time to turn things around in Bundesliga, and that’s what fans will be cheering for now.
