Cologne - There were equal measures of delight and discontent emanating from the bowels of the Bundesliga stadia on Matchday 7.
bundesliga.com rounds up what some of the coaches had to say following another round of enthralling action in Germany's top flight...
FC Bayern München 4-0 Hannover 96Pep Guardiola (Bayern): We're obviously delighted with the result. Hannover were the third or fourth team to line up with five across the back against us and it's never easy. We scored four, but it could have been more. The most important thing is that we're getting better with every game.
Tayfun Korkut (Hannover): We had a game plan, but the early goals put paid to that. It's not easy against a team with such quality and flexibility. They really took the game to us. We have to accept the defeat and concentrate on our next games. Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Hamburger SVJürgen Klopp (Dortmund): We didn't play enough football and failed to capitalise on the spaces on the flanks. We improved in the second half and really gave it everything. If we'd have taken some of our chances we could have turned the game, but that's speculation. We've hit rock bottom.
Josef Zinnbauer (Hamburg): We're happy and satisfied. No one saw us picking up all three points before the game. It's just so nice for the players to finally get something for their efforts after fighting so hard in the last three games. The players have been plugging away for weeks, and today perhaps we had that little bit of luck that was missing against Frankfurt. You can see that the team's taken another step forward. Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 1. FC KölnThomas Schaaf (Frankfurt): It was a really enjoyable game that swung from end to end. We're happy to have picked up so many points, but we know there's still plenty of work to be done.
Peter Stöger (Köln): We played pretty well. It's never good to concede so many goals. There was more in it for us today.
Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-1 1. FSV Mainz 05Lucien Favre (Gladbach): We're disappointed to have dropped two points, but pleased because we played some great football. Even though it's tough, we need to try and take the positives from the game. In football terms, we played brilliantly. We seized the initiative and created plenty of chances against a well-drilled Mainz defence.
Kasper Hjulmand (Mainz): We're really pleased. For me, Gladbach are one of the best teams in Germany. We didn't play well in the first 10-15 minutes, but it got better after that. We were really under the cosh in the last quarter of an hour or so and had a bit of luck, but my players fought hard and gave everything not to lose. We know we can play better, but we're on the right track.
VfL Wolfsburg 1-0 FC AugsburgDieter Hecking (Wolfsburg): Fatigue comes into play when you've played in midweek because the freshness is missing. That's why it was good for us to go in at half time at 0-0. We did really well in the second half.
Markus Weinzierl (Mainz): We're really disappointed. We had so many good chances to score and should at the very least come have away with a draw.
Hertha Berlin 3-2 VfB StuttgartJos Luhukay (Hertha): The team didn't let their heads drop after falling behind so early. Stuttgart came back at us in the second half and we really had to dig our heels in in what was a key stage in the game. Sometimes you need that little bit of luck.
Armin Veh (Stuttgart): For 15 minutes we were great, but after that we were far too passive. We conceded a silly penalty. We dominated after the break and created chances, but the mistakes baffle me. You're not going to win games like that.
