VFL Wolfsburg fans did not have very much to cheer about last season.  Narrowly avoiding relegation and rifts within the team saw Die Wolfe finish in 15th spot.  Again, under the eyes of manager Felix Magath and a number of new signings, Wolfsburg looked poised to find the form which saw them lift the Bundesliga title in 2009.  The signings of  Christian Trasch, Tomas Hitzlsperger, and Aleksandr Hleb,  will allow the midfield to play a free flowing brand of soccer which was no where to be found all of last season.  Defenders Sotirios Kyrgiakos,  Hrvoje Cale, and Chris have all joined the club as well, and will be expected to develop a defensive relationship quickly in order to improve on last years embarrassing back line.  Lastly, Swedish under 21 international Rasmus Jonsson has been brought into help the team as well.  This versatile player from IF Helsingborgs can play up front or in an attack minded midfield role and should  give the Wolves some much needed depth.  It is hard to win games and play consistently when half of the starting eleven has arrived within the past few months, but spirits are high within the camp and with co-leaders Schalke 04 coming up on the weekend, this match will show not only the fans but the entire Bundesliga what this team is capable of.
