by Niklas Wildhagen

He should have been one of the last missing pieces of the puzzle when Hamburger SV purchased him back in 2012. Rafael van der Vaart was the long-lost son of the HSV fans and he finally made a return to the Imtech Arena on the last day of the transfer window during the 2012/13 season. The […]

by Niklas Wildhagen

The Bundesliga has provided its fans with some high scoring matches after the league’s return from the winter.

Six of the Best from Bayern as they overpower ten-man Paderborn

by Rick Joshua

FC Bayern returned to Bundesliga action with a journey north-west to Paderborn, with normal service being resumed. The home side must surely have taken some heart from Bayern’s lack of sharpness in front of goal against Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek, but any hopes of pulling off a shock were quickly quashed as Bayern once again […]

Jeepers Keepers! The Bundesliga’s Last-Gasp Scoring Goalkeepers

by Mathew Burt

The fourth official has shown the time to be added on, your team is still a goal behind and you are stuck inside your own area guarding a goal under no threat. Your side is pushing for the late equaliser, loading the penalty area, you look to the bench for permission to join in. You […]

Dear Bundesliga, Just Say NO (to the EPL Model)

Clinical Bayern find their mojo as they dismember hapless Hamburg

by Rick Joshua

A 4-1 thrashing in Wolfsburg. A scrappy 1-1 draw with ten men at home to Schalke. A laboured 2-0 win at struggling Stuttgart. Things had not started well for FC Bayern after the winter break, and already there were a few rumblings among commentators, critics and supporters. Four weeks into the Rückrunde the real Bayern […]
