#claytsfm19
1. #HerthaBegin

An eclectic mix of young talent and ageing stalwarts, Hertha are seen by the media as solid Bundesliga midtablers having finished 10th last season.

#claytsfm19
2. First transfer window will be tricky but vital for moving the club forwards this season. Purse strings are tight with a modest transfer budget of just approx. £7m + sales and the board have imposed strong philosophies to blood youngsters and homegrown talent.

#claytsfm19
3. Interesting first transfer window. Club legend Vedad Ibesevic leaves for Al-Ittihad whilst Lewis Holtby and Ryad Boudebouz are brought in. Perhaps most notably, Divock Origi joins on loan for the season.

#claytsfm19
4. First game in charge is a routine 4-0 win in the German Cup against unknown Elversberg.

Bundesliga begins at home to Nürnberg followed up by away trips to Schalke and Wolfsburg.

#claytsfm19
5. A flying start to the league campaign with 3 wins from 3.

✅ Nürnberg (H) 1-0
(Jastrzembski 5’)

✅ Schalke (A) 2-1
(Grujic 35’, Maier 82’)

✅ Wolfsburg (A) 2-1
(Kalou pen 34’, Jastrzembski 76’)

#claytsfm19
6. A tactical look at the lineup versus Schalke.

Counter attacking set up looking to spring quickly up to Boudebouz playing off Origi.

Youngsters Maier, Jastrzembski and Torunarigha all starting with the experience of Kalou and Jarstein proving important.

#claytsfm19
7. A good start to the season for teenager Dennis “Jastro” Jastrzembski (18). Brave display of faith in youth already reaping rewards.

#claytsfm19
8. Assistant manager Rainer Widmayer mutually terminates contract.

#claytsfm19
9. Former Bayern coach Philip Laux appointed new assistant manager.

#claytsfm19
10. A mixed bag of results.

✅ Borussia M’Gladbach (H) 2-0
(Origi 36’, Kalou 43’)

❌ Werder Bremen (A) 0-2

➖FC Bayern (H) 0-0

#claytsfm19
11. At the end of September and heading into matchday 7, the club sit atop the league after winning the opening four games before crashing to defeat against Bremen and salvaging a goalless draw against Bayern.
12. Centre backs Niklas Stark and Jordan Torunarigha pen new long term deals with the club 🖋

#claytsfm19
13. Two good wins followed by a late loss away at Dortmund.

✅ Mainz (A) 4-0
(Dilrosun 12’, 78’, Origi 26’, 88’)

✅ Freiburg (H) 2-0
(Origi 16’, Kalou pen 36’)

❌ Dortmund (A) 1-2
(Boudebouz 47’)

#claytsfm19
14. Safely through to the third round of the German Cup with a 2-1 away win against VFL Bochum of the league below. Salomon Kalou with a late winner off the bench.

#claytsfm19
15. Four unbeaten results taking us through into December.

✅ VfL Bochum (A) (Cup) 2-1
(Duda pen 7’, Kalou 90’)

➖ RB Leipzig (H) 0-0

➖ Fortuna Düsseldorf (A) 1-1
(Lazaro 10’)

➖ Hoffenheim (H) 1-1

➖ Hannover 96 (A) 2-2
(Darida 13’, Stark 31’)

✅ Eintracht Frankfurt (H) 1-0
(Stark 76’)

✅ VFB Stuttgart (A) 1-3
(Grujic 55’, Origi 61’, Mittelstädt 90’)

➖ Augsburg (H) 1-1
(Selke 10’)

➖Leverkusen (A) 0-0

#claytsfm19
17. Halfway Point!

Heading into the winter break sitting proudly in 3rd place in the league. Surely can’t sustain this form with such a small, ailing squad but we’ve put ourselves in a great position nonetheless.

#claytsfm19
18. Upcoming transfer window might well be an interesting one. Already strong rumours about Ondrej Duda who is linked with Valencia and Shakhtar; who had a bid knocked back in the summer.

#claytsfm19
19. Stats fans, here are some halfway-point-of-the-season numbers from to get stuck into.

Relatively low number of goals have been well spread out around the squad.

26. ➖Mainz 05 (H) 1-1
(Kalou pen 7’)

It’s been a superb (if not surprising) season thus far and with 10 league games to go we are sitting pretty in 4th. Champions League qualification has to be the aim from here. Can we do it?

#claytsfm19

#claytsfm19
31. Through to the German Cup semis we go via a penalty shootout.

✅ Hoffenheim (A) 1-1p (7-6)
(Kalou 87’)

#claytsfm19
32. Hertha will play Leverkusen in the German Cup semi final at the BayArena.

#claytsfm19

✅ Fortuna Dusseldorf (H) 4-1
(Plattenhardt 21’, Origi 40’, Kalou 79’, Soucek 81’)

❌ Hoffenheim (A) 2-3
(Kalou pen 45’, Origi 80’)

✅ Hannover 96 (H) 2-1
(Kalou 49’, Origi 77’)

#claytsfm19

(Dilrosun 3’, Origi 11’)

36. We can secure Champions League football for next season if we avoid defeat and other results go our way.

Elsewhere Eintracht Frankfurt are away to Bayern.

Crunch.

#claytsfm19

✅ Hoffenheim (H) 2-1
(Selke 4’, 36’ Pereira sent off 59’)

#claytsfm19
57.

After racing into a two-goal lead, Pereira was then sent off.

Hoffenheim laid siege to the home goal and made it 2-1.

Back up ‘keeper, Rune Jarstein, was our hero though, saving an 82nd minute penalty and sending through us to the 3rd round.

(Jastrzembski 17’, Stark 22’, Jovic 41’)

#claytsfm19
255.

@ChampionsLeague Final.

Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow

Saturday 1st June, 2024

Kick off: 9pm

Here is your line up...

#claytsfm19
256. Luka Jovic leads the line as both Håland and Pellegri are ruled out.

Andreas Pereira at CAM as Hertha are forced to move away from their successful 2 striker formation.

Maikon and Eder Militão are the preferred CB partnership.

#claytsfm19
257.

1’ Underway at the Luzhniki, fantastic atmosphere here in Moscow

#claytsfm19
258.

16’ Cagey opening with both sides looking to keep hold of possession. Efforts from Dilrosun and Pereira bring comfortable saves from Alisson in the Liverpool goal.

#claytsfm19
259.

17’ Woodwork! First big chance of the final. Luka Jovic gets on the end of a Maier cross only to see his effort bounce off the foot of the post.

#claytsfm19
260.

27’ Goal! 0-1 (Salah)

Liverpool take the lead against the run of play. Brandt steals onto a loose ball before delivering a peach of a ball over towards Salah. The Egyptian sweeps home with his right foot.

#claytsfm19
261.

36’ Saves at both ends as Dilrosun goes close before a Dybala free kick forces Horn into action. 0-1.

#claytsfm19
262.

38’ GOAL! 1-1 (Eder Militão)

Andreas Pereira hits a free kick from a wide right position, Alisson saves but can only parry it out to Eder Militão who rolls it into the empty net. Game on!

#claytsfm19
263.

44’ GOAL!! 2-1 (Pereira)

Hertha have turned it around! Similar to the equaliser only this time Pereira curls his free kick sweetly past Alisson in the Liverpool goal! Wow.

#claytsfm19
264.

HT: Hertha 2-1 Liverpool

A slim lead at half time as Hertha turn the game around following Salah’s opener. Andreas Pereira instrumental in both goals.

#claytsfm19
265.

47’ Yellow! Underway in the second half and Paulo Dybala picks up a caution for a foul on Villagra.

#claytsfm19
266.

48’ GOAL!!! 3–1 (Sterling)

Incredible! Sterling picks it up on the right hand side and weaves his way inside before crashing an unstoppable left-footed finish past Alisson. What a goal! Dreamland!

#claytsfm19
267.

58’ Timo Horn called into action twice in two minutes. He first safely catches a looping header from Cutrone before a Julian Brandt header needs turning around the post. 3-1.

#claytsfm19
268.

63’ Yellow! Patrick Cutrone is booked for a trip on Eder Militão. It seems Hertha have dropped Arne Maier into a deeper role in front of the defence.
Still 3-1.

#claytsfm19
269.

74’ Liverpool pressing but Hertha are doing well to keep them at arms length.

Subs:

For LFC, Cook off, Jankto on whilst Renato Sanches replaces Villagra for Hertha. Remains 3-1.

#claytsfm19
270.

82’ Jankto blazes over for Liverpool. A let off that.

Sub: Jastrzembski is on for Hertha in place of Javairo Dilrosun.

#claytsfm19
271.

86’ Goal! 3-2 (Alexander-Arnold)

Is that the start of comeback? Trent Alexander-Arnold smashes home from outside the box. Game on once again!

#claytsfm19
272.

90’ The referee’s assistant signals 3 minutes of added time. Both teams are readying substitutes. 3-2.

#claytsfm19
273.

90+1’ Walter Casais is on for Hertha, Sterling off. Giminez is being taken off for Liverpool, Roberto Firmino is his replacement. Time is running out.

#claytsfm19
274.

FT: Hertha BSC 3:2 Liverpool.

That’s it! It’s over, Hertha hold on to win the @ChampionsLeague!

#claytsfm19
287. How did we get here? Before we finish let’s look back and reminisce at seasons gone by...

And finally, the season that tops it all. That famous night in the Luzhniki to crown us European champions following an emphatic march to yet another Bundesliga title.
