Stanislawski still not impressed
Hoffenheim coach Holger Stanislawski cannot find much to rejoice about from yesterday's 3-1 win over Wolfsburg, just a week after saying his side's 4-0 win over Mainz was their "worst performance of the season".
The win lifted Hoffenheim up to fourth in the table, just a point adrift of the league leaders Werder Bremen and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Yet not even that seems to be good enough for the former St Pauli coach. "We played too slowly," he explained. "We did not take our chances.
"We still have a great deal of room for improvement. However, we are glad to have 12 points and to have still won the games in which we have made our own lives difficult."
Stanislawski told Sky that his side has had luck on their side, since they have hardly been following his instructions in recent weeks.
"We just seem to play in any way we like," he added. "It may look quite nice, but it does not follow any defined path."
Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath thought his side was now on a well-defined road after beating Schalke last weekend, but he was sorry to see them lose their way again yesterday.
"It is a shame that we have not used the positive game against Schalke to get something out of this game," he said. "We don't have any consistency."
