BVB Bulletin: a Dead Leg, some Dead Play, yet a Win in Dresden

by Travis Timmons

Post-derby matches, especially post-Revierderby matches, are letdowns. Make no mistake about it. Dortmund’s somewhat undeserved 2-0 road win the Pokal round of 16 on Tuesday evening was a letdown match.

BVB Bulletin: Return of the Fist-Pumping Klopp

by Travis Timmons

After Friday’s 3-2 win at poor hapless VfB, not only are Borussia Dortmund back, but he’s back. Jürgen Klopp – he of the back-spraining celebratory acrobatics, he of the bear hugs, he of Yo Gabba Gabba exuberance, and he of the pneumatic fist-pumping.

by David Morris

Is it possible Marco Reus has played his last game for Borussia Dortmund? In MatchDay 12’s 2-2 draw with Paderborn, the German international was on the receiving end of a nasty tackle that has put him out of action until January with torn ankle ligaments.

Week ten of the Bundesliga season would see FC Bayern entertain Borussia Dortmund in the latest instalment of Der Klassiker – but one that would have a slightly different pre-match flavour from what we had become used to in recent seasons. Usually a top of the table clash, this season’s encounter at the Allianz Arena […]

Monday Morning (PST) Center Back

by Randall Hauk

I understand how it’s not likely Monday morning in most of the world where Bundesliga football news slapped together in English is likely to be read. I do. Yet, it IS Monday morning where I sit and write, and since I get to name my columns whatever I wish, I thought I’d steal a bit […]
