Facebook and BVB

Only a few weeks ago the latest shooting star entered Facebook. Felix Magath, the under pressure Gelsenkirchen autocrat, started his account and within minutes had some 6.000 likes under his belly. As of today he storms towards the 140.000 likes sign and has already left traces on the network. He posted a couple of dead funny videos on how he suffers in the coaching zone, explained why Jurado after some 8 months in Germany still needs to adjust to Bundesliga rhythm and announced that he had been on radio.

Legends are made of this. And after Blue Scums loss against Gladbach over the weekend, a fantastic flame war started in the comment section mounting in calls for a) resignation or b) Albert Streit. And as we sit and wait for some more Felix news, we have a few seconds to walk around the BVB Facebook universe. The Borussia Dortmund universe has been there before and even if it is not as funny as the Felix page, it can be useful at times.

Here are links to the regular Club-Pages, official player pagers and a few fanclubs and fanpages you might want to follow
