The Rise of Christoph Kramer

by Luyang Syvanen

When Christoph Kramer’s name was included in Germany’s final 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil, plenty of eyebrows were raised. Understandably so, as he was not even selected for Germany’s initial 30-man provisional squad, having only been promoted later by Jogi Löw for tactical purposes. Much like the case of tennis player Goran […]

Bayern blanked by discliplined Gladbach

by Rick Joshua

The top of the table clash between FC Bayern and Borussia Mönchengladbach would prove to be just that – with both sides slugging it out but unable to provide a knockout blow in ninety minutes of pulsating football. This was a game that proved that a 0-0 stalemate can be exciting, and in a well-balanced […]

Mönchengladbach: Foals to be reckoned with

by Adam Nilsson

I imagine that Lucien Favre was quite relieved to wake up on the morning after the transfer deadline day. No player from his team had been sold at the last minute, despite many rumors circulated about a couple of his Mönchengladbach players being on the radars of other European clubs. No transfers were made. I bet […]

Juan Arango leaves ‘The Foals’ after five years

by Niklas Wildhagen

Many Bundesliga fans have been in awe of The Special Juan and his magical left foot. If ever the cliche of a player not being a great goal scorer, but a scorer of great goals, described a player accurately, it’d probably be applied to Arango. After five years of loyal service, the Venezuelan has chosen […]

Lucien Favre – The Architect behind the rise of the Foals

by Eskender Tamrat

The first five away games for Borussia Mönchengladbach, including a trip to Champions League participants Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, couldn’t have gone any worse – only a single point was taken by the homesick club from a possible fifteen. But, became a thing of the past once Gladbach secured their first win on their […]

Max Kruse’s late but accelerated rise to Bundesliga prominence

With age comes wisdom. For 25-year-old Max Kruse, age brought wisdom in the unorthodox form of repainting his Maserati in camouflage colours during the summer. But unorthodox is an accurate summation of both Kruse’s rise to prominence and subsequently to the German national team in the last few months. His age stands out when you […]

It had been positively hosing it down in Munich all day. This did little to dampen the spirits of an expectant Bayern crowd, who turned up to witness Pep Guardiola’s Bundesliga debut. Have you heard there is a new sheriff in town? You might have heard in dispatches somewhere – his name Pep Guardiola. However, […]

De Jong Strikes Against Goalless Eagles

by Aleix Gwilliam

It has been over seven hours of football since Eintracht Frankfurt scored a goal, not since Srdjan Lakić scored in the 36th minute in the 0-2 win at the Imtech Arena against HSV a month ago. Today Eintracht showed a bit more threat in front of goal with the return of Takashi Inui from suspension […]
