Zero goals would not suffice

Zero goals would not suffice

Looking back a couple of weeks ago, we probably all remember singing, laughing and surely also dancing Borussen who did not get tired of talking about the wonderful moments football offers you. We had just won the most important game of the year- the Derby against our ugly neighbours- and felt as if everything that had gone wrong during the first half of the season, suddenly was not that bad, not that inexplicable anymore. Life as a Dortmund fan felt good. Three days later we were back to frustration, having lost the away match against Juventus. [mehr..]

A Black and Yellow Island in Hamburg

A Black and Yellow Island in Hamburg

We all know it: On Saturday thousands of BVB supporters will visit Hamburg. Full of hope for maybe the fifth win in a row. Will Borussia Dortmund still climb up in the league? But we should all have in mind that matches vs. Hamburger SV in Hamburg and also in our Westfalenstadion had been not very successful during the last years. Dortmund’s last win in Hamburg was in season 2011/2012. It was an impressive 5:1 win but in most of the following matches it always seemed like some black and yellow assistance for HSV to avoid the relegation. [mehr..]

Highlights in recent Derby history

Highlights in recent Derby history

Tomorrow one of the most important matches of the season will be played at the Westfalenstadion: the Derby. Borussia Dortmund hosts the match against a team from a suburb of Gelsenkirchen: FC Sch*lke. To get started, here is a little review of some highlights in recent Derby history. [mehr..]

Surprise, surprise ...

Surprise, surprise ...

The days after Saturday's draw in Leverkusen have proven a huge discepancy between Dortmund supporters and German media once again. While the entire away sector seemed to be happy with the clean sheet against Bayer, a number of sports journalists saw Borussia on a sure way to relegation, with not much happening offensively and a shockingly low rate of successful passing attempts. Why is this the case? [mehr..]

Long Road to Ruin

“We had huge problems. It started with the problem, that we had too many matches and not enough players, not to mention enough training sessions." [mehr..]

Birthday present?!

Birthday present?!

Who would have thought of this 105 years ago? Borussia Dortmund playing in the Bundesliga, Champions League and Cup, struggling a bit at the moment but all in all one of the most successful teams in German football. Stunning what developed from an idea you had and pushed forward with some others, Mr Jacobi, isn’t it? But before we get back to the current situation, let’s take a look back five years ago.

The same procedure as every week

The same procedure as every week

Borussia Dortmund are where the have been two weeks ago. With a horrible performance the black-yellow ones lost their away match in Berlin 0-1. Now the mighty wolves of VfL Wolfsburg are visiting Westfalenstadion. [mehr..]

Berlin volume one

Berlin volume one

We could play quite a few games in Berlin this season if all went well and luck was on our side as well. After all, besides the anual Cup Final, there is also a Championsleague Final in Berlin this season. I guess it is allowed to dream a little bit. [mehr..]

Nearly there ...!

Nearly there ...!

The situation in the Champions League couldn’t be more different from the one in the Bundesliga. We hit rock bottom last weekend in league and tomorrow we’ll be waving ‘byebye’ to the other teams of the group leaving for the next round and just a small step missing to win the group as well. Nearly there … [mehr..]
