It is official. Nuri Sahin is back in Dortmund since Friday after playing one and a half years for the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool FC. Yesterday, 400 to 500 fans came to the training in Brackel to see Nuri training with his team mates for the first time. Of course, the return of the lost son was a big sensation for those involved. Furthermore, it is not only a great transfer for the sporting future, but also for all football romantics. The guy from Dortmund who played for Borussia in the youth squads as well and who became German champion in 2011 with an incredible performance but decided to make the next move in his career by going to Madrid, is back after the obstacle of becoming a star in Madrid turned out to be too big.

Hi everybody in Borussialand,
we are currently surviving the last week of the winter break and this weekend, our Borussia will start into the second leg of Bundesliga season 2012/13. Our match in Bremen against Werder's team will be the start for the next weeks or months of truth. Maybe, the win of the so called "Winter Cup" in Düsseldorf last Sunday against teams like Standard Liege, Mainz 05 and Fortuna Düsseldorf has been a good overture for the second half of this season.

It is the only group of this year's Champions League season filled with four champions of their respective countries. Borussia Dortmund was drawn into group D and will face the three big clubs of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Ajax Amsterdam. And oh boy, how am I looking forward to these six games, because let's be honest: This is exactly what Champions League is about. Big matches, big opponents, matches under floodlights... This is exactly what we had been waiting for over the last years.

Over the last two years, I have taken a close look on our new players during the winter break. This year, I want to continue this little tradition to evaluate how the newbies advanced in the championship team. Before this season, Ilkay Gündogan, Chris Löwe, Ivan Perisic and Moritz Leitner came to make the Deutscher Meister even better. Additionally, injured Julian Koch came back to Borussia after being on loan in Duisburg, Mustafa Amini announced his transfer to Dortmund (even though he will arrive not until this summer) and Marvin Bakalorz made the step from the reserve to the first team but never played in Bundesliga. This is why I will leave these three names out of my analysis. Let's have a look on the four newbies who really made some appearances on the grounds of Germany.

Before the last three matches, much has been said about the importance of those three meetings with the three big clubs of Bayern Munich, Arsenal FC and Blue-White. It was said that after the three matches, one could get a clue of the future of the Deutscher Meister 2011 and that this week would be a kind of decisive for the rest of the whole season concerning competition in Bundesliga and Champions League. Therefore, after these three matches have been played, it is time to evaluate on that. What impressions did we get? What does the future have in store for Borussia? Of course, it is necessary to divide this analysis in two parts, national and international competition.

The curse of success came earlier than expected. Real Madrid ripped the brain out of the team of championship winning young-guns by signing Nuri Sahin. Though it is no surprise that the Borussia performances throughout this fantastic season caught the attention of the big players in international football, it was widely expected in and around Dortmund that the core of this team would stay together at least to play the next Champions League season. But with Nuri Sahin not only the pacemaker of our midfield leaves Dortmund but also a local boy and homegrown talent cherished as a “Dortmunder Jung” by the BVB supporters. How did the fans react to that? Is the move at this moment a wise decision by the young Turk? How will Borussia fill the gap Sahin leaves behind? We try to answer some of those questions.
