Score One For the Bundesliga!

Have goals ever been so important? With two games remaining, points are only marginally more important than goal difference in the hunt for survival, Europe and even the Meisterschaft. Wolfsburg silenced the critics and showed their professionalism by keeping their outstanding home-form (remember the only points dropped at the VW […]

What is wrong with the Bundesliga?

Whilst reading the latest football gossip recently, a story about Bayern Munich tracking Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc in a £7m summer swoop caught my eye. Now, why Bayern want to sign a man who must currently be considered the dodgiest keeper in British football is a whole article in itself – […]

Could Cinderella Ruin The Bundesliga’s Ball?

With Hamburg’s win today over Energie Cottbus, the Dinosaurs join Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich in a three way log jam in second place behind surprise front runners Hertha Berlin. All four are four points behind the pace with upstarts Hoffenheim a mere five points off the pace with just ten […]

Thierry Henry Transfer, A Step in the Wrong Direction?

The excitement over the return of Thierry Henry, Arsenal’s all-time top goalscorer, on a two-month loan is understandable, but the realistic impact Henry will have towards Arsenal’s push for Champions League qualification is questionable. He’ll be a great presence in the dressing room, a great tutor for other players and […]
