Someone obviously recently took delivery of the “Joe Hart Guide to Stupid, Jumpy, Needlessly Pro-Active Goalkeeping Decisions’ if Freiburg goalkeeper Oliver Baumann’s calamitous performance against Hamburg on Sunday afternoon was anything to go by.

Hamburg won the game 0-3 with the 23-year-old Freiburg ‘keeper dropping major clangers for all three goals: flying out of his area at a moment’s notice for the first two, only to stutter when it came to actually clearing the ball thus allowing Hamburg pair Max Beister and Pierre-Michel Lasogga to capitalise with the goal a-gaping each time.

Baumann then shored up his hat-trick on the hour mark, fumbling Beister’s shot directly into the path of Rafael van der Vaart who, by rights, should really write the Freiburg ‘keeper a little thank-you note for gifting him Hamburg’s third goal so generously…

A solid day’s work that leaves Freiburg second-bottom of the table, five points adrift of the dotted line.

    looks like a solid application for Roy’s boys!

  2. Fisty McCracken says:

    According to Google Translate* Baumann means “England’s number 1”

    *might not actually be true

  3. K says:

    I don’t know a lot about his usual performances, but I’d be looking into match fixing in a heartbeat on this one. Because you have to try to do that bad for the most part.

  4. Peters says:

    that second error was madness.. just kick it out you fool

    but as my favourite quote from a book about soccer fixing says: “If you’re going to lose anyways, at least lose with 25,000 pound in your back pocket”

  5. iko says:

    This has match fixing written all over it. I mean holy hell.

  6. jj says:

    idiots sayuing its match fixing. The goalie made one mistake and then had some serious psychological breakdown

  7. Sebastian says:

    And he’s the CAPTAIN???

  8. Nuno says:

    WOW… just wow…
    You can’t be a professional keeper and be THAT bad. He doesn’t even try.
    But if you’re going to bet against your team, I think THREE gifts might be a bit too suspicious…

  9. Plethora says:

    First one is so blatantly intentional its untrue. Only the third could possibly be an accident.

  10. TravisKOP says:

    hes been a fairly consistently decent keeper tbh. hes only begun floundering since the season started
