As an amateur organisation, and due to proverbial Swabian austerity, the club hesitated to spend money, and some players continued to work in an everyday job.
Throughout the balance of the decade and until the mids, the club would generally earn mid-table results.
One of the few stars of the time was Gilbert Gress from Strasbourg. In , the team qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first time and advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament where they were eliminated by eventual winners Feyenoord 1—2, 2—2.
VfB Stuttgart was in crisis in the mids, having missed new trends in football such as club sponsorship. Attempts to catch up with new levels of professionalism by spending money failed.
Towards the end of the —75 season , with the team in imminent danger of being relegated to Second Bundesliga , local politician Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder was elected as new president.
However, a draw in the final game of the season meant that VfB would be ranked 16th and lose its Bundesliga status. The first season in second league, considered the worst in its history, ended with VfB being ranked 11th, having even lost a home game against local rival SSV Reutlingen in front of just 1, spectators.
With new coach Jürgen Sundermann and new talents like Karlheinz Förster and Hansi Müller , the team around Ottmar Hitzfeld scored hundred goals in —77 and thus returned to the top-flight after just two seasons.
The young team was popular for offensive and high-scoring play, but suffered from lack of experience. At the end of —78 , VfB was ranked fourth, but the average attendance of over 53, set the league record until the s.
They made another UEFA Cup semi-final appearance in and delivered a number of top four finishes on their way to their first Bundesliga title — the club's third national title — in , now under coach Helmut Benthaus.
In —92 , Stuttgart clinched its fourth title, in one of the closest races in Bundesliga history, finishing ahead of Borussia Dortmund on goal difference.
Internationally, they had been eliminated from UEFA Cup play that season —92 after losing their second round match to Spanish side Osasuna 2—3.
As national champions, the club qualified to play in the UEFA Champions League in —93 , but were eliminated in the first round by Leeds United after a tie-breaking third match in Barcelona which was required due to coach Christoph Daum having substituted a fourth non-German player in the tie's second leg.
VfB did not qualify for any European competition again until , by way of their third German Cup win, with coach Joachim Löw. They enjoyed a measure of success on their return, advancing to the European Cup Winners' Cup final in Stockholm , where they lost to Chelsea in what was the penultimate year of the competition.
Löw's contract was not renewed and he was replaced by Winfried Schäfer , who in turn was sacked after one season.
Stuttgart's performance, however, fell off after this as the club earned just mid-table results over the next two seasons despite spending money on the transfer market and for veterans like Balakov.
New president Manfred Haas had to renegotiate expensive contracts with players who seldom appeared on the field anyway.
As in , when Mayer-Vorfelder had taken over, the team had to be rebuilt by relying on talents from the youth teams.
Coach Ralf Rangnick had started a restructuring of the team that won the Intertoto Cup, but the resulting extra strain of the UEFA Cup participation ended in narrowly escaping from relegation in by clinching the 15th spot in the league table.
Rangnick was replaced by Felix Magath. In July , Erwin Staudt became the new president of the club. VfB qualified for their second Champions League appearance for —04 , beating Manchester United and Rangers once and Panathinaikos twice to advance from the group stage as runners-up to Manchester United.
They were then matched against Chelsea in the round of 16 , falling 0—1 and 0—0 over two legs. Stuttgart continued to play as one of the top teams in the country, earning fourth and fifth place Bundesliga finishes in —04 and —05 respectively, and again taking part in the UEFA Cup , but without great success.
In addition, coach Magath and several players left for another clubs: Halfway through the disappointing —06 season , Giovanni Trapattoni was sacked and replaced by Armin Veh.
The new coach was designated as a stop-gap due to having resigned from Hansa Rostock in to focus on his family and having no football job since , save for coaching his home team FC Augsburg for one season.
Supported by new manager Horst Heldt , Veh could establish himself and his concept of focusing on promising inexpensive players rather than established stars.
Team captain, Zvonimir Soldo , retired, and other veterans left the team that slipped to ninth place and did not qualify for European competition for the first time in four years.
Despite early-season losses and ensuing criticism in —07 , including a 3—0 loss at home to 1. Stuttgart established themselves among the top five and delivered a strong challenge for the Bundesliga title by winning their final eight games.
In the penultimate week on 12 May , Stuttgart beat VfL Bochum 3—2 away from home, taking the Bundesliga lead from Schalke 04 and at minimum securing a spot in the —08 Champions League.
After trailing 0—1 in the final match of the season against Energie Cottbus , Stuttgart came back to win 2—1 and claim their first Bundesliga title in 15 years.
In addition, VfB had their first ever chance to win the double as they also reached the final of the German Cup for the first time since their victory there ten years former.
Their opponents in the cup final in Berlin were 1. FC Nürnberg, a team that had beaten them twice by three goals in regular season, 3—0 and 4—1, and had last won the cup in With the game level at 1—1 in the first half, Stuttgart's scorer Cacau was sent off.
Nürnberg gained a 2—1 lead early in the second half, but the ten men of VfB managed to fight back and equalize.
In the second half of extra time, however, with both teams suffering from exhaustion and the humid conditions, Nürnberg scored the winning goal.
It ended in a 2—1 defeat. The second match at home against Barcelona was likewise lost, 0—2, as well as the third match, against Lyon at home, with the visitors coming out 2—0 winners from two second-half strikes.
Five defeats and just one win over Rangers meant the early exit on the European stage. In the league, they managed to finish in sixth place after a poor start.
The —09 season , like the one before it, got off to a bad start. After exiting the German Cup after a 1—5 thrashing from Bayern Munich in January, prospects improved considerably and the team ended third in the table, with second place just being missed after a loss to Bayern on the last matchday.
That meant the chance of making the Champions League again. VfB were then drawn into Group G against Spanish side Sevilla , Scottish champions Rangers, against whom they had also been drawn against in their previous two Champions League Group stage appearances, and Romanian champions Unirea Urziceni.
With two wins one each against Rangers and Unirea , three draws one each against all opponents and a loss to Sevilla they managed second spot in the group, thus qualifying for the round of the last 16, where they had to face title holders Barcelona in late winter.
That defeat came in the course of a disappointing first half of the —10 Bundesliga. As a consequence of slipping to 16th spot in December, young coach Markus Babbel was fired after matchday 15 and replaced by the more experienced Swiss Christian Gross.
Under his tenure, VfB improved their situation domestically as well as internationally before the winter break.
In the later half of the season, the team — as in the —09 season — had a fantastic, almost unbroken, winning streak.
As the best team of that second return round of the Bundesliga, the Swabians under Gross climbed into the upper half of the table and, after a sensational rally, eventually managed to secure European football for the following season by qualifying for the Europa League.
The —11 season was a mediocre one—after again spending the first half of the season almost always in the relegation zone 17th and 18th spot , with Christian Gross being fired and interim coach Jens Keller taking over for the rest of the first leg, Bruno Labbadia was hired as new coach in January and managed to save VfB from relegation.
Eventually, the team finished 12th after a decent second-half performance. Mäuser was elected as president.
In the following —12 season, they managed to constantly climb up the table; this was especially thanks to a long unbeaten streak in the spring.
With effect from 3 June , Gerd E. Mäuser announced his resignation as president of VfB Stuttgart. After barely avoiding relegation from the Bundesliga in the —15 season , Stuttgart were relegated to the 2.
Bundesliga in the —16 season after finishing in 17th place, having been unable to lift themselves out of the bottom three positions until the end of the season.
After Stuttgart were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga , Wahler resigned as President on 15 May On 17 May , Jos Luhukay was announced as the new head coach.
On December 22 , after nearly 10 years since his departure, Bundesliga title winning striker Mario Gomez returned to the team from fellow Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg , The team made a solid return season to the Bundesliga, finishing in 7th place.
After being renovated several times, the stadium can hold a maximum capacity of 55, spectators 50, for international matches. Ecuador and the third place play-off Germany vs.
Since the —09 season, the stadium was named the Mercedes-Benz-Arena, starting with a pre-season friendly against Arsenal on 30 July In , the capacity was increased to 60, However, the respective first teams of the two clubs haven't played each other since Kickers were relegated to the 2.
In this derby, old Badenese - Württembergian animosities are played out. On a national level, supporters groups of VfB used to be closely connected with those of Energie Cottbus , 1.
All of these supporter group friendships have been discontinued by today or are only maintained by few supporter groups.
Gallen was signed, with particular emphasis on the youth sectors of both clubs. Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.
Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. I didn't think it looked that bad in the vise. But I'm not re-making the sequence because of it.
I like your tutorial for the Royal Wulff. I have a suggestion for step After the wings have been secured in position, and you are ready to clip the butts of the calf hair, don't clip them at a right angle to the hook.
Tip your scissors and clip the butts on an angle, tapering toward the tail. If you clip them in this manner, you can help shape the tapered body: Hope this makes sense.
Quote from the FAOL tying demo: Thought a beautiful pattern would make more people want to try the hair wing trick. It was done for our fly-fishing club's site, so of course in Swedish.
But I have been working on translating them anyway and this morning I started on the Royal Wulff. Well, now I'm done and it's printable.
Gotta make a note of that one! I suspect there might be a video demo there, and or, look in the on demand section of 'Angler's Art'- PBS series here - http: I never leave home without them.
Thursday, January 03, 8: The nice thing about that site is the detail each of the steps goes into. The awkward part is there are so many steps.
So an FAOL or other more consolidated page would print better, but might not give you the detail. To answer your other question, for the swap I would worry more about the color of the materials than getting them "right".
As you pointed out, depending on the pattern recipe you use there will be different materials listed. So for the wings, either white calf tail or calf body hair will work, neatly stacked and evenly divided.
