In our opinion
Explanation:
All of my dictionaries say that dieseitig means on this side of the river bank or world. But my instincts tell me that what is meant here is our opinion. It would appear that there are two sides to an issue/dispute. "They" believe that a true expert could have expected solutions to the task presented to him. Without more context I can't say exactly what they're getting at. Hope this helps.
