Big changes on the cards at Schalke

by Aleix Gwilliam

One of the names that will be filling pages of Bild, kicker and Transfermarkt et al during the summer and the run-up to it will be that of Schalke 04. The club from Gelsenkirchen is currently undergoing a somewhat underwhelming season (7th place in the league table at the moment) that will probably result in big changes taking place […]

by Niklas Wildhagen

A few personal observations about Thomas Schaaf’s incredible time at Werder Bremen. I’ve been a fan of Werder Bremen ever since I saw them on the television for the first time in the beginning of the 90s.

As much as fans of the Effzeh would likely prefer […]

An Ode to a Forgotten Hero – Dieter Eilts

by Niklas Wildhagen

The former Werder player Dieter Eilts was amongst the best footballers of his time, but is often forgotten among the other stars from the 90s. Dieter Eilts is an icon in Bremen these days.
