    The Bundesliga Thread

    Needless to say last weekend's Revier Derby was unbelievable, Dortmund look a shadow of their former self. However, was really impressed with what Tedesco has done with Schalke, they look determined in every deparmtnet, and despite not having the best players, they work hard for each other. The performance of Naldo at the back was incredible, McGrath like; every ball in to the box he was in the right place, every pass intercepted and his distribution was super, and he topped it off with a great goal from a free kick. Atmosphere as ever unlike anything you get in England.

    Cannot wait for the Revier Derby on Sunday, hope it's as mental as the one earlier in the year, just with Schalke winning this time! An atmosphere like nothing i've been to anywhere else.

    Think last weekend was such a hammering that it looks inevitable. The run in they have is do able but they are going to have to win almost all their remaining matches now and hope for some form of miracle (but they have since Christmas anyway)

    Huge end to the season in the battle for the European spots, amazingly Schalke are 2nd still, just hope they can keep up their winning record (especially on the 15th when I am there) against Dortmund. Koln and Hamburg look like they are finally going to bite the bullet, I had hopes that Koln would get out of it, but that result last weekend looks pretty damning.

    Pre Match

    Important to remember we have to play Cardiff and they have to play Wolves. If we beat them and Wolves do the gap it will swing back to us, 9 wins is the aim and tonight we need to get back to doing the job. I trust he will have rotated the squad to freshen it up

    Is it a loan to buy if we do get promotion, or do we get the option to say no even if/when we do this season?

    Gabby Agbonlahor

    Surely it just goes without saying that he cannot be given a new contract. Even if it was on a pay as you play deal, he adds nothing to the squad, is hardly a good role model for the youth players, and couldn't give any advice on how to be a decent professional. Sooner his wages are off the bill the better. Cheers for the derby day goals, will always remember being at the Sty when he powered home that header against Joe Hart late on, but too little in a career which has been massively poor.

    I have been in Dubai this weekend, and was just going to the beach when I saw the score was 4-0 to BVB, so was more than happy to avoid it. Checked again at the beach and saw 4-4 and was straight in to the sea! The game is simply massive, nobody understands over here how much bigger it is than Dortmund Bayern. The hatred between the two fans is just immense one of the best experiences I have ever been to and I have been lucky enough to go 3 times

    Not quite sure what is going on in Gelsenkirchen but the boys are flying! 2nd in the league, but Dortmund next up away, would happily take a point to keep the unbeaten run going. However, definitely think Dortmund are there for the taking, and if they lost to Schalke this weekend Bosz would be gone for sure, he was never going to be good enough for them.

    Pre match buildup

    I just want us to play attacking football, not what we did against Wolves, take the game to them and cause them problems.

  14. Maintain my comment about Sane and Dembele being the future best players in the world.

    Yeh, another terrible dive from Werner, he definitely has something of the Jurgen about him. Not sure if he will be the starting striker (I would have him personally), but Low isn't sold on him just yet I think. Hamburg should be safe, but has been said many times in the past and they love to leave it til the last minute to secure it! Don't think Schalke have a fit striker for tomorrow, so should be another fun game to watch...
