  1. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v SHA

    Game was poor, but the 3 points paper over the cracks, give us even greater bragging rights and hopefully send them down. Next season SB has a lot to prove to us, as the football has been turgid, I will allow him this season (big of me I know), as he has had to clean up another mess. However, next season I want to see us attacking teams and playing football we deserve to see for the money we have spent. Purely out of interest as I was in the North Stand today, but was the Holte End quiet? we couldn't really hear it when the North Stand was quiet.

    Such a shame there is little to no BL2 shown on tv over here, I would much rather watch that than the Australian or Scottish leagues that we get to see. One thing you are guaranteed with German games is lots of goals and entertainment.

    Purely out of interest, but which stadium do you think has the best atmosphere in it?

    It definitely had a massive impact, the season before they had Draxler bought, but as soon as the company got found out, they had to cut the funding to the club and start to sell players. It is a shame, as having been to Wolfsburg, there is literally nothing else there but the VW factory and the football stadium (and they're about 200 yards from each other). I have nothing against any of the teams, they all break the rules or flaunt them somehow. If you think about it Bayern and Dortmund are on the stock exchange whereas others i.e. Schalke are still 51% owned by members, so they are not as wealthy. I just want the league to be competitive and for Bayern to not dismantle other teams by buying their best players, oh and for Dortmund to stop being everyone's second team....boring.

    Was a strange one to be honest, he was electric at times, but he has been played through the middle recently and excelled ,however, they put him on the right on Saturday up against Coke (who hadn't played all year) which was a massive mismatch, so I don't think I saw a true reflection. I think he will be a huge player, his footwork is incredible, he had an early chance and wasted it. If I was offered Sane or Dembele, I would still pick Leroy, he has aerial prowess which Dembele doesn't have and is more likely to score.

    The fans don't kick off with each other in the seating sections like they would in England, as long as the away fans don't infiltrate the standing sections there is no trouble. I was at the game and we saw no trouble inside or outside the ground again, English fans could learn a thing or two. Schalke should have won the game too, disgraceful decision in the 90th minute to not give them a penalty when Bartra handled it in the box, would have been an amazing way to win the derby. On Sunday I was at the Stuttgart v Dynamo Dresden game too, around 10,000 away fans and the atmosphere was incredible! We were sat next to them in the home stand, but were surrounded by away fans (again no trouble). The game was on BT Sport if anyone saw it they'll know how good it was, 3-3 with a 94th minute penalty for Stuttgart having been 3-0 down. I would put some pictures on here, but I can't work out how to make the pictures smaller. Finally, I would love us to sign Simon Terodde he is class.

    Really hope they do (for obvious reasons) so far its 1 win, loss and draw, so something has to give. They seem to have finally bought in to how Weinzierl wants to play, so they have a bit of form, shame the international break came when it did. Always wanted to go to the Mercedes Benz Arena, so I'm hoping it is as good as I think it will be, but there will be 16,000 away fans there, so should be a great atmosphere anyway.

    Schalke v Dortmund tickets and Stuttgart v Dynamo Dresden tickets in hand, roll on next weekend!

    I feel for Hamburg fans, I was at one of the destructions at the hands of Bayern and they were dire that day (Mancienne and Bruma at the back). Leverkusen have so many talented players (like my beloved Schalke) but just can't get it to click enough to get them over the line. Schmidt is a good manager, but nowhere near good enough for a team like Arsenal, he has kept Bayer up in the top 6 for a while now, but I think without some serious medical money from the owners they will never get close to Bayern.

    They lost 2-0 at home today to Mainz
  11. The Bundesliga Thread

    Just the 8-0 for Bayern today against Hamburg, they love playing them, last 6 games they have scored 44 goals against them at home. Can see the Bayer Leverkusen manager being sacked within the next couple of weeks, their form is atrocious.

    Got back yesterday, had a great time, managed to see the Northern Lights, the evening before we left, I don't think I have ever been more cold in my life! Loved the Golden Circle tour, and went to the Blue Lagoon- we only managed 35 minutes due to our NL excursion but that was fine. We went to another thermal pool in the city on our first night, so had plenty of time in hot water! Went to an amazing fish restaurant called 'Messinn' would highly recommend it!
  13. Iceland

    Hi everyone, I am off to Iceland for 3 days on Sunday, any last minute recommendations? Booked is Northern Lights (Sunday night, poss Monday depending on weather/seeing them Sunday) then Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon. Cheers all

    Hoping that Guido Burgstaller can keep up his impressive form this season,could be one of the buys of the year if he does, scored a few goals already for Schalke and only cost just over a million I think. With him and Embolo (when fit) I have much higher hopes against Dortmund than I did a few weeks ago.
  15. The Bundesliga Thread

    They were in the BL2 at that point though, so it was tough to say no, now they're in the BL they won't be selling many players to them.
