The Bundesliga Thread


Thought i’d start a thread for those fans of zee German league.

My hangover on Sat morning felt a helluva lot better after i watched Luka Jovic demolish Fortuna:


Thats just crazy.

And Bayern with a good win. Kovac has been under a lot of pressure. Always seemed an interesting move to go for him when they seem to prefer much bigger names


Bayern issue was availability though wasn’t it? Pretty sure he was the only manager they could get at the time, pretty much a last resort.


This is the first time I’ve had BeIn so I’ve been catching a bit of the Bundesliga. I don’t know what I was expecting but the standard has kind of let me down. It’s like a PL lite, helter skelter interspersed with moments of quality. It’s exciting to watch but I find that there are a lot of basic errors in the defensive 3rd that result in goals rather than the breaking down of defences through ball play. Dortmund appear to be the exception to this and Jadon Sancho looks to be a real baller. 36kph top speed on the weekend as well!


Paco Alcacer does it again. At this rate he’ll win the Ballon d’or without starting a game.

Union Berlin rolled Stuttgart on away goals to be promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time ever.

Hamburg finished 4th in the 2. Buli, just one point behind Union, but remain where they deserve for at least another season.


Hamburg totally threw it away in the last couple of months. Only thing that could have made that season better for me was if St Pauli had gone up, maybe in place of Paderborn.
