Zhang Xizhe- PR stunt or the real deal?

by Mathew Burt

It’s fair to say that the handful of Chinese players to have tried their luck in Europe have largely failed to make the grade. They generally arrive in a blaze of publicity and hype from the Far-East, labelled the biggest thing to come out of Asia’s superpower, before failing to make a real impact and […]

Sitting in the Weserstadion, one can’t help but feel that Werder Bremen’s fans do have an impressive support going for their team. I was there for the match against Hoffenheim, and it was lovely to see the way Davie Selke was applauded off the pitch despite not having had the best of matches. The attitude […]

by Andrew Smith

This season Werder Bremen has been nothing but mid-table, rising no higher than 7th, but never really being in the relegation discussion as they haven’t dropped below 13th so far. Many clubs would be pleased with this, but Bremen won the league as recently as the 2003-2004 season and have finished 2nd for the Meisterschale to […]
