German First Division Soccer Now Headed by “Cinderella” Team - Page 2
With their convincing (2:0) victory over Cologne on Tuesday night, the Mainz 05 crew have now won every game in the last ten successive appearances. Its run of six wins in a row at home is a record for the 105 year old club. Rumors already circulate that several of the players are being “eyed” by more notable clubs with lavish player-transfer budgets. It happens to middle-rank Cinderella teams in a busy competition: they find the talent, coach them to professional level and then watch their hard-earned “achievements” head out the door. We shall see.
