Just a peek at Timothy Chandler’s assist on the weekend for Nurnberg as they dropped Kaiserslautern and remained 6th in the table.
We need a TSG nickname for Chandler.

Didn’t someone already deem him Timmy “fivehead” Chandler?
I like how after he makes the cross, he also “does” the header for the goal… like he’s playing a video game.

Way to spot that. Hilarious.

What happened to the defender there? Chandler gets a step on him and he just wilts. Would love to see more context. Keiserslautern coach doesnt look pleased with the defensive effort on either end of that play.

Timoteo, TimTiminy (TimTimTeree, obs from Fiddler on the Roof: germans in america?), Light Whitening, I’ve got more cheesiness where that came from!

The name should have something to do with Frankenstein.

More of the same from Chandler… speed down the flanks followed by an accurate cross. Is it time to get legitimately excited about him?

I hear the Germans call him “Rocket Man.” No confirmation that Elton John preferred “Tiny Dancer.”

Nein. Winzig Tänzer!
I would also recommend: Der Hammer!
Which is the equivalent of The Bomb, The Shizzle, The Shiznit. The Hammer.
It’s Hammer Time!

i think Hitzlsperger of west ham already has that for a nickname

Definitely looking forward to “thank you for choosing USA fiveheaded frankenfreak” in all TSG articles.
“Serviceman” might be a bit more appreciative of his skills and background.

How about Timenstein? It has a nice German ring to it with an offhanded reference to his prominent forehead.

Did Tim Ream just steadfastly refuse to be called “Timmy” when he got called up?
