“Lewa… who?” – Dortmund and the ability to replace everyone

bvb334

It is over. No, seriously. Over. O.V.E.R. Borussia Dortmund will log out. The “Schwarzgelben” will not participate next Bundesliga-Season. The things just get too hard and there is no fun anymore. Maybe it is possible to find another club. Maybe Bayern or Barcelona… Winning titles and stuff. Stop! You may find one or two pieces of irony in the first […]

Bundesliga Matchday 31 Team of the Week

TOTW

Matchday 31 was chock full of goals and excitement, despite there being no title implications at this point of the season. Bayern soundly defeated a strange Hertha lineup thanks to two absolute stunners from their player of the Hinrunde in Douglas Costa and the Rückrunde in Arturo Vidal. Dortmund also fielded a diet Coke lineup without Hummels, Schmelzer, Gündogan and […]

While the Hertha-Bayern and the Schalke-Leverkusen match-ups are probably going to be the most-aesthetically appealing, we will first look at the relegation battles and potential upsets which are just […]

If there were any doubts regarding die Meisterschaft, Bayern’s 3-1 win over Stuttgart at a sold out Mercedes-Benz Arena paired with the 2-2 Revierderby between Schalke and Dortmund put that to bed, with the Bavarians now enjoying a seven-point […]

“Welcome home, coach” – Jürgen Klopp and his return to Westfalenstadion in Dortmund

kloppo

The legend is coming back to his stadium. It is easy to understand that the figure of Jürgen Klopp has a certain importance in Dortmund. He will always have this status. Always! I remember a slip of the tongue before the final of DFB-Pokal in 2008. Borussia Dortmund had to face FC Bayern München and Jürgen Klopp worked for German […]

In the minutes after the final whistle, you could observe 1. FC Köln’s Dominique Heintz having a proper go at Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann. What happened? In the 90th minute, the Billy Goats lost the ball whilst going forward due to a clear cut foul on Lukas Klünter. Instead of blowing his whistle referee, Deniz Aytekin allowed the game to continue.
