In Formula 1, midsummer is called the “silly season”. Why? Because the rumor mill has been running hot these past few weeks about which racing driver will be driving for which racing team in the coming year, whether engine manufacturers are changing teams or whether engineers and designers are changing. Logically, this term does not exist in professional football, because the “silly season” lasts twelve months.

So let’s wait and deal with the facts: Eintracht is changing beer suppliers, has won two “Brand Awards” for its brand management, parted ways with U-21 sports director Patrick Ochs and hired a new head of athletics. Oh, and she’s surprised by signing two talents, Larsson and Bautista, whose names haven’t been floating around the internet for weeks before.
