Bundesliga Thread

Recommended Posts

So, anyone else here watch Bundesliga 1 and/or Bundesliga 2 football?

 

I'm mair into the Bundesliga 2 but catch the occassional Bundesliga 1 match too.

 

Borussia Dortmund doing nae bad this year in the top division, looking likely to win it. My team Union in Bundesliga 2 had a crazy game at the weekend; 2-0 down, came back to 2-2 (two goals in 2 minutes), then got the third, then it came back to 3-3 and then we missed a pen on the 85th minute! Exciting stuff though.

 

Was at the Olympiastadion for the Berlin Derby the other weekend too - was incredible. What an atmosphere like!

Where Aberdeen fans were sat against Hertha in 2001 (or was it 2002?)

 

Anyone else follow these leagues?

I do- of course- as I'm German ;) My team is Eintracht Frankfurt, who have a few difficulties in the top division right now. I live at Paderborn, though, who play in the 2nd Bundesliga, but don't support them. As I study at Bielefeld I also hear a lot of talk about Arminia Bielefeld, who are going down to the 3. Liga apparently after almost going into admin in the summer.

 

You can be happy with Union, I suppose, they always look to be a special club with great fans.

Aye Bielefeld are having a total shocker, but think they got a draw at the weekend against Bochum which was a surprise!

 

Yeah, Bochum won 8 times in a row before, but it doesn't change much, not even a Mourinho or Van Gaal could still save Arminia from relegation.

I watch it when my favourite german side are on, 1FC Kaiserslautern. German football is definitely the best in the west these days from a spectators point of view.

I seem to keep updated with Dynamo Berlin, just simply because a few mates follow them. I wouldn't say I follow them or anything, but kept up to date by a good friend who really likes to keep in contact with how they are getting on.

 

German football has never appealed to me in the past, but if I'm missing out on something then let me know and I'll start getting involved.

I love BFC Dynamo and have done since we played them in the European cup in 1984, the whole mystery surrounding them back then and the colourful past has kept me intrigued to this day. I'd say i'm as every bit in love with them as i am with Aberdeen fc :thumbup1:

 

First went to see them in 1992 and have been hooked ever since even though they are currently playing 5th division, i'll be getting a special tattoo soon in honour of them.

 

We have a very good relationship with their fans and we are made very welcome when we are over there, and many of the Dynamo lads now follow Aberdeen fc and come visit a couple of times a year.

 

FC Aberdeen und BFC Dynamo = Unser Stolz! :applause:

Don't think they're being seriously bankrolled by anyone. had a look on wiki and it's their first season in the top league, finished 2nd in B2 last year.

 

City of 250,000, so that's where your 30,000 crowds come from.

 

Maguire89 will know more than me, I could be wrong and they may have a sugar daddy.

Saw that earlier. Terrible ref!

 

My mate was chuffed to bits tho, as is coupon was up with that win.

 

Hoffenheim are wanting a replay - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/24589671

 

The BBC article states that a similar thing happened in 1994 when Bayern Munich beat Nuremberg. The first game ended 2-1 to Bayern and the replay ended 5-0 to Bayern. Nuremberg were relegated by goal difference that season having checked Wikipedia. I was disappointed though that the 5-0 game couldn't have been considered the game that cost them their place in the end. They finished on -14 goals but Freiburg above them were on -3.

I seen it last night, the Hoffenheim players never complained at the time.

You would have thought the linesman would have noticed that when they usually check the nets before the game and half time. Suppose none of the hoffenheim players noticed as none were on the post or close to it.
