FC Siemens Schweiz – FC VBZ 7-3

Yesterday we had the last match of this season, this mini-series. First match was canceled due to the opponent, then second match was canceled because of us, and now the third and last match was against Siemens.

The preparation was not good. We struggled (again) to have enough players with a lot of uncertainty even just a day before the match. We had to bring in new signings very quickly without even knowing their names and faces.

Most of us arrived to Juchhof 2 on time. Monday was a hot day, but big clouds started to come as we approached kick-off time. Just half an hour before the starting whistle, there was a huge shower and also ice was falling from the sky. The wind was cold and strong, coming from the side of the pitch. Good conditions, eh? Anyway, the artificial grass is wet also for the opponent, isn’t it?

The first half was more or less OK. We had some big chances, but missed most of them. Siemens side was not strong, so we managed to only concede once, and afterwards we could also equalize before the half time. Before that happened, Denes, who was in the goal, asked for a substitution as his knee was hurting (he broke his ACL last year).

The second half was as usual. We were running out of air, and the lack of stamina combined with the lack of team play & tactics resulted in a quite bad result. Siemens scored various goals, long-range, short-range, penalty, it was quite humiliating especially as they are not a super strong team. We also managed to score two more times, but overall we missed at least 5-6 big chances.

FC Siemens Schweiz vs FC VBZ: 7-3 (1-1) – match report

What’s next? We need to continue building this team, signing new players and then starting to form them into a team. We need to have players who are tactically disciplined and also have enough lungs for the whole match. But for now, we will start the summer break (still with trainings, hopefully).


0-9, but this was not that bad

Yesterday we were again beaten quite heavily as the result is: FC VBZ vs FC Kuma 1975: 0-9 (0-2).

A bit more details to mention:

  • Labi was injured heavily after 20 minutes or so, so we played majority of the match with 10 men.
  • First half was still good, we played well, first goal was quite unlucky.
  • We became very tired for the last 15 minutes, that’s when we got the last 7 (!) goals – 4 in the last 5 minutes (!).
  • Kuma is not a very strong team, with more players and proper bench (and no injury) we definitely have a chance against them.

Get better, Labi!


FC UBS AG vs FC VBZ 3-0 (forfait)

I forgot to capture this. One more forfait, and our season is over.


FC VBZ vs SC Dow CH 0-3 (forfait)

Yesterday we didn’t have enough players. Autumn school holiday – never good for people with children. Maybe Friday?


We miss the 1-6

Well, what can I say… Yesterday’s match was not the best performance ever. Many mistakes as individuals as well as a team, and a very shameful result. It can be only better. Let’s forget this quickly.

Yesterday’s team: Kleber – Laszlo, Eugen (c), Krzysztof, Imre – Andras, Adam, Florian, Tobi – Labi – Agron; substitute: Peter

FC VBZ vs Zürich-Gruppe 0-15 (0-8)


Always 1-6

Even though the match started well, we were down 0-3 at halftime. In the second half Adam scored a very nice goal, but they again scored three times.

FC Credit Suisse vs FC VBZ 6-1 (3-0)

What was wrong? Well, the preparation was not good, we had injuries, and because of that we were only 11, without substitutes – that’s not good for a team without fitness. We played with 3 players at the back, on our level playing like that is not easy, wingbacks from the midfield can’t come back on time which means the attacking side is always 4v3 or 2v1 on the sides. On the midfield we were not aggressive enough, no tackles, no interceptions. We were not able to combinate the game and have multiple passes, the only time we had more than 4 passes was before our goal. Probably the worst was the kickoffs when we literally lost all balls. We could go from our defensive half to attacking around 10 times during the match while the other side had at least 50 attacks, finishing half of those with a shot. This is something to improve.

But to also mention positive signs, even though we had no subs, our team was able to run until the final whistle. There was no blaming, we tried to support each other throughout the entire match. It’s important to recognize also a few players who did well.

Krzysztof was simply great. He run a lot, he was able to get from the left to the right side in no time. He made a lot of tackles, even sliding ones. Without him the result would have been much worse.

Eugen also played well. He had many clearings, he was able to stop multiple attacks. He was also calm with the ball, passed to teammates well. Compared to his age, he was great.

Last but not least, Kleber was magnificent. He literally saved us from a terrible result, without him we could have conceded a dozen or more goals. He was very definite with his legs, very quick to rush out from the box, and he made multiple times great Robinson saves (flying in the air). It was great to have him in the back, and he kept us motivated with his words. Man of the match!


Again 1:6

Next time it will be better! This time: FC VBZ vs FC ZKB 1:6


Slightly tighter defeat

It doesn’t look good either, but we scored again, we found a new goalkeeper, and after the last time (8) we conceeded less (6) goals. The trend is improving!

Official result: FC Siemens Schweiz – FC VBZ 6-1 (4-1)


First match, first defeat

Yesterday we had our first match against FC Sporting ZH, a new team with some familiar faces from the past. The result is not good (1-8, 0-5 at halftime), but there were definitely some positive signs:

  • Adam scored on his debut game
  • Nobody got injured
  • We have found a great goalkeeper
  • There were some parts of the game (especially in the second half) when our game was looking really good

We started with a 3-5-2 formation, but then we switched to 4-4-1-1. Beside the people mentioned below (starting line-up), Krzysztof, Mateusz, and Branislav were used as substitutes.

Official result: FC VBZ – FC Sporting ZH 1-8 (0-5)


Result of the last match in 2019

The last match of this year summarized very well the struggles we had throughout the whole season. 11 players only, no substitutes, injuries before and during the match, unfair penalty and free kick, losing the 2nd half after winning the first one.

The best part of the game was the 1st half: nice attacks, good passing, strong defending, scoring a goal after a counter attack. And then the 2nd half with Denes’ injury and the rest – let’s forget it. We wish you a quick recovery, Denes!
