The Eagle Eye #82 – Bundesliga Christmas Edition

Dear Eagles around the globe,

the first half of the season is over. Unfortunately, we have to inform you that Eintracht had a tough time and lacked success in the last weeks. SGE lost four Bundesliga matches in a row against Leverkusen, Mainz, Darmstadt and Dortmund.

However, just in time for a beautiful Christmas party, the Eagles were able to rack up a victory at home against Bundesliga competitors SV Werder Bremen on the last matchday of the season’s first half.

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year! Thank you for your support in the last year. Enjoy the holidays. And, as always, keep on following Frankfurt – over land and sea!

Sincerely yours,

The English Eintracht Internet Team

PS: We have good news. Timothy Chandler got married. Congrats, Timmy!
