There are BVB supporters all over the world. Dublin, Ireland is no exception. When we heared that two of them were coming to Dortmund to visit their first live match at the mighty Westfalenstadion we had to meet them for a chat. In our video interview Bernardine and Trish, two lovely Irish girls, told us how they came across Borussia Dortmund, why they don't care so much about the EPL and why they were celebrating, when Ireland got thrashed by Germany in their hometown. And last but not least about their battle to form an official BVB Fan Club in Dublin, which has not been successful so far, due to communication problems with their favourite club. Carry on girls, the Emerald Isle needs some black'n'yellow spots.

Mats Hummels is one of the “Borussen” which
already was a part of the national cup final in 2008, even if he did not field.
Under Juergen Klopp, he formed the initially derided “Kinder-Bar” and is now
among the EM candidates for the German national squad. In the first part of our
interview, we talked with the 23-year old about his memories of the national
cup final, his role as a build-up central defender and future perspectives (with
or without title).

It could have been a perfect day. Spring sun did its best to renew our faith in the young guns, who had lost to Hoppenheim the week before. The schwatzgelb.com gang met in their favourite bar in the Kreuzviertel to follow the afternoon matches before heading up Lindemann towards Westfalenstadion and what was supposed to be an important win in our race for the title. It never happened. As we all know.

In a mediocre fourth league tie Borussia Dortmund II yesterday drew 0-0 at home to 1.FC Köln II. Only 725 fans had found their way into Rote Erde. It was a fantastic early spring evening and so the Bender twins, Neven Subotic, Mario Götze and of course Jürgen Klopp showed up to watch their team mates Patrick Owomoyela and Mitch Langerak play.

Schwatzgelb.com tries to provide deeper insights into the fan lifes of fans who don't live in Germany and for whom a trip to the Westfalenstadion is not just a small leap but a very unique story.
Today we speak to Markku Korhonen, a Borussia Dortmund fan from Finland. But Markku is not only a football fan- he made his hobby become his job and so he works... Well, I guess he can tell you better than I...

In his three years with Borussia Alex Frei successfully continued the Swiss tradition in Dortmund. He evolved into personified life insurance during our relegation fight. The 2007 Derby hero scored 34 goals in 74 matches. Despite several injuries the all-time top scorer of the “Nati” (Swiss national team) always fought his way back into the starting line-up. Unforgettable his brace in September 2008 against Blue Scum, which meant the comeback after being 0-3 down. Only recently Alex Frei announced his resignation from the “Nati” by the end of the 2010/2011 season.

It is a gloomy day in Dortmund. The rain is drizzling down, a rough wind blows and coming in to the city the U is hidden behind clouds, only some yellow shining through the grey. But never mind the bad weather, it is all sunshine down at training ground in Brackel. Some 100 people have gathered to watch the first training session of our boys in black and yellow. Rumors of the call up of at least three Borussia young guns circulate among the packed journo area until Kevin Großkreutz smiles and says: “Yes, it is true”.

But first of all he is looking for a cricket team in Dortmund.
