Absolutely pumped to get this guy. 2014/15 season outscored Lewandowski, Ribery and Robben.  Played with Schwegler and despite a knee injury succeeded in Bundesliga 2 the last 2 years where J Mac failed. Shame we have to wait till the season starts but cannot wait

Thought I'll post this here, this guy called Kale Morrow on Twitter does football analytics and done one on Meier.

He seems to be scoring alot inside the box and willing to take shots outside the area as well.

Majority of his goals coming from set pieces and headers (see aerial wins, the red dots is Meier's ratio). 
Would love to see him score from some corner kicks.

Many articles in German Football websites on Meier, Schwegler and Babbel with the occasional mention of Ziegler. I just translated one from Kicker which exceeded Google Translate’s 300 character limit. If only Kicker has an English option.

it has to be the biggest coverage that the A-League has got ever in Germany.

he is the highest profile player ever from Germany and if he stays fit for 2/3 of the season we are going to enjoy it.

I would say it is.

The amount of comments that the club has received on their Facebook page from people that are from Germany and also Eintracht Frankfurt fans have been blowing up like crazy and they are all nice comments wishing him well, saying we'll have fun with him and calling him "Das Fussballgott" with images of their shirts with his number.

Even Eintracht Frankfurt's English Facebook page wished him all the best.

It's awesome stuff, hopefully we'll attract some German fans to the club now.

It’s just embarrassing that own “fans” comment on the same articles with “he’s 36... why haven’t we signed a BL top scorer in his late 20s....?” Total whoopers

Yeah, I saw this one on Instagram:

My comment doesn't show in full but I replied:

"Grozos is 19, O'Doherty is 21, Kamau is 24, Tass M is 20, Cordier is 20, Baccus is 21, Sullivan is 21, Yeboah is 25, Monge is 18, Wilmering is 18, Russell is 20, Adam is 19, Suman is 19, Greenwood is 20 and this kid says we need young talent..."

Also, where did the club f*cking announced we signed him for 4 years?

...what an idiot.

At this stage the various outlets are merely repeating what was published on the wsw web site.

HAL games are shown in Germany already, my brother in law watched the last derby live on TV, and was quite impressed with the quality of the game. It's going to grow further from here. 

Both MB and Schwegler have a very good reputation in Germany and Switzerland. AMFG at wsw will crank up the volume considerably. At least the Eintracht fans will be on board. 

The social media comments from Germany should signal to the FB family football experts just who and what is about to enter Australian air space...

The only real test of becoming an overseas fan is making a WSW cake.

Been there, done that.

You think the club would find someone who hates the Wanderers less than Smithies to do the first interview.

The club posted on Facebook they did an interview with him, it'll be posted soon (probably today or tomorrow).

Well as Cockerill is dead, Gatty now on our side, Gorman fooked off to Brisbane & NRL, Rugari focused on the AFL that only leaves Bossi and Smithies. 

Sokkah jernalism is a shallow gene pool

Has the club copied FCB by referring to AM as AMFG in their Twitter Feed:xnod:

Potential sponsorship tie-in with AMG?
