Never forget where you come from!

Never forget where you come from!

Since 2008, Juergen Klopp and his team are in charge of the professional sportive department of Borussia Dortmund. Since then, the club has been on a steady but unstoppable way, increasing the sportive performance year for year, ending up as a two times national champion, national cup winner and the second champions league year in a row. The sportive performance and success of the squad  also put Borussia back on the international stage and the club attracted more and more international interest, new sympathisers and supporters. In order to inform our new followers as well as to remember our existing readers that absolutely nothing we experience these days and the past years can be taken for granted, this report will tell the story about the massive management failures in the years 1995 - 2005 that led our football club Borussia Dortmund into a live-threatening situation with financial debts of over 115 million Euros.

Mr. Policeman ? could I have one more snickers please?

Mr. Policeman ? could I have one more snickers please?

When I think about my school days a long time ago I always remember one of my former class teachers. Nearly all of my classmates and me said “he was our best teacher ever!” Why? Because our teacher Mr. D. was a person who signalized natural authority and a lot of competence, which seemed to be absolutely acceptable for us. After my return from Manchester I must say Mr. D. could have been an English police officer. [mehr..]

Kein Zwanni strikes again - information about the boycot in Hamburg

Kein Zwanni strikes again - information about the boycot in Hamburg

Starting with the away derby in GE during season 2010/2011, the fan initiative "Kein Zwanni für nen Steher" fights for affordable ticket prices in Germany. Over the last couple of years, they called out to boycot the mentioned derby just like the away matches in Hamburg. Last year, the fans met before the stadium to follow the match through the radio. This year, the protest will be showed in a different way. Read the official statement of "Kein Zwanni" here: [mehr..]

Quo vadis Dortmund?

Quo vadis Dortmund?

The past two years have been a blast. To be honest, it was almost good to do rather worse than bad in the Championsleague and Euroleague, otherwise we would probably have a hard time now, picturing what it was like to not be successful and all happy. But as great as the past two years have been, with the incredible first championship season under Klopp where noone had thought that we would have such an amazing season before it had started, and then the double victory in May. A dream come true and somehow another fairytale. A lot of people were wonding how much better any of this could really get and mostly the answer was a more successful way of playing in international games. [mehr..]

It?s time for the truth! Borussia Dortmund only at number two in Germany!

Yes, it is time for the truth! But please don’t panic when you read this dramatic headline. There was neither a downgrade for our club nor Borussia hast o return the Schale or the cup! The reason that Borussia Dortmund is “only” at number two you will not find on the green but you will find it currently in Germany’s music charts. [mehr..]

Cup final, May 12th in Berlin - DO it again Borussia!

What a great season 2011/2012! Borussia Dortmund is German Champion again! The second time in a row - for most of us (including me) a big surprise after winning the title last year. Meanwhile, a lot has been written about the new Deutscher Meister 2012, our sensational team, our sensational coach, our sensational team spirit and a lot of sensational matches. Aren't there enough sensations for this season? No! We all are full of hope that we will experience another sensation. On Saturday, our Borussia will play the Cup final in Berlin's Olympiastadium against the almighty team of Bayern Munich. Yes, its Bayern Munich again, the all time favourite in the Bundesliga. This season only Vice Champion in the league but one week later on May 19th, the opponent of Chelsea in this years Champions League final. But dont let us waste our time thinking about Bayern! Much more important is: Its Borussia Dortmunds great chance to write history in 2012 ? winning the double for the first time in our club's chronicle! [mehr..]

Things look promising for our Borussia with the start of the second leg in season 2011/2012!

"Kein Zwanni" - everybody listen to the radio

The preconditions for the protest of BVB-supporters in front of the Imtech Arena in Hamburg, the follower of the Volksparkstadion, could have been better: Pouring rain, freezing wind, and round about 5 degrees made me expect a maximum of three to ten other protesters who would find their way to the meeting point at the entrance of the visitor block. Marc Quambusch, spokesman of Kein Zwanni (no twenty - in reference to a twenty Euro bill for a standing room ticket), was later asked about the circumstances of the protest and answered: I can't even remember when was the last time that my feet were this wet! In the end, a remarkably number of 600 to 800 supporters in black and yellow met at the stadium, having their radios with them to be able to listen to the game at least. Although the official statement said that the stadium was sold out, it has to be said that this surely wasnt the case. Lots and lots of tickets were still on sale before and during the game. [mehr..]
