Has anyone here ever used viagogo to buy match tickets (not necessarily just for Dortmund games)? Yay or nay? Are you likely to get a better deal from resellers on game day at the stadium?

It all makes sense now. Gotze and Lewandowski just wanted a ride on the magic school bus.... They'll be back with their tails between their legs after we spank that "team" this season

What is it about Bayern that people like Rummenigge and Beckenbauer just don't know when to shut the f*ck up? I mean really. Help me out here. Does everybody connected to that team have their heads that far up their asses? Is there something in the water in Bavaria? Tax cheats and media whores. Every last one of them

They're just displaying the typical withdrawal syndromes of former great footballers. Pelé and Maradona have it too: they hate being out of the spotlight so they come up with the kind of nonsense you can expect from dementing old men.

Aging with grace is not part of their plans

^Unfortunately it would seem so for most great players who have either remained as a figurehead in football or simply those who have had nothing to do. At least some of them have turned to punditry, coaching or something in similar capacity. Those who have remained in football in some insignificant capacity, well, turn into politicians

What do you guys think of Mitsuru Maruoka? The young japanese boy from the U-21's.
I don't know how he is doing there, all I know is he scored a few times. Really want to know ya'll hardcore BVB supporters who follow your youth too, because this young boy still has lots to learn but will definitely turn into a gem. After all, he is a proud Cerezo Osaka Youth Product!
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 1 day ago
He looked very promising during our preseason and Klopp speaks very highly of him. He seems to be a regular starter in our second team now, at the age of 18.... That says it all. Tactically and technically, he's already great. If he can match the physicality needed for the top level and learn to be more consistent, he will be great for us one day. Would be very surprised if we didn't bite on the buy-out clause
ColonelBX (Chelsea) 9 hours ago
That's great to know thanks! Yeah I really hope BVB buys him! Cerezo Osaka Products don't betray ya! Ya'll know it

Auba-man, Auba-man.
Does whatever, Aubaman can.
Scores a goal, any day
Runs so fast, he'll make you pay.
Look ooooout! Here comes the Aubaman.

I'm so happy he's in this sort of form. Micki and him have been the best performers so far (including the pre-season), I hope it's a continuing trend
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 days ago
I TOLD YOU ALL THAT AUBA would TURN IT ON THIS season!

Naaaa, I'm just super stoked to see him do this well. I always thought he should be our Lewa replacement, but playing him next to Ramos or Immobile in a 442 is absolutely ingenious. Gives him the freedom to use his incredible pace to work of another post forward. He's going to be deadly this year.

I don't think Dortmund will be sporting the leading goal scorer this year but I believe that Auba, Immobile, Ramos, Mickey, and Reus will all score in the double digits, with Auba scoring the most goals

Dortmund will be better off without Lewa, I can feel it...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 days ago
Auba is a great guy and a great player, and to see him flourishing like this now makes me feel really happy. Ciro is potentially the new Christian Vieri and Ramos is a great new addition to the strikeforce.

BUT, Lewa was a huuuge asset for Dortmund, never a liability. He is a team player, a complete striker, a goal machine. There's no way we'll be 'better off' without him, but Klopp always finds a way to manage and keep Dortmund strong
RGordon (FC Hansa Rostock) 3 days ago
Hmm. It is undoubtedly difficult to disagree over something as obvious as Lewandowski's goal scoring abilities.... However, I feel that in the long run we may actually be better off without him - not because other players are better than him individually, but because a more flexible and less predictable playing style focusing on more than just one goal scorer gives players such as Auba, Reus, Mikhi and hopefully Ciro a new flexibility that they may need to grow.

Was Lewa a great player for Dortmund? Absolutely! But I think we have a new team which can hopefully compensate in other ways, better flow and more dynamic. We'll see.
Ekoj (Perspolis) 3 days ago
Not because Lewa was bad or anything. But better off in a way that they feel the need to work harder in order to compensate
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 days ago
I agree that we'll be better off without Lewa. It forced us to progress our style of play.... With him still here we would not be playing a 442 and Auba would never have gotten his chance as a forward. Our system is much more fluid now that we don't rely on just booting the ball up to Lewa for him to pluck down. He was and is a phenomenal player, but I won't miss him one bit.

The first time I saw Götze in red and blue, I teared up. When I saw Lewa in Munich's colors, it didn't faze me one bit

@MP you think Dortmund would have won if Mario didn't miss the champions league final vs Bayern? I thought you hate him by now instead of missing him

I agonized over whether to get subotic because I couldn't find a quality sub to play while subotic recovered. Seems he will go straight back into the starting line up! Good to hear reus and subotic are back in the fray

Schmelzer injured?

On one hand I feel bad for Schmelzer, who, honestly, is a good player. On the other hand however, I cannot wait for Durm to establish himself as our left-back starter!

This may be similar to the *being forced to your luck* situation as the Mustafi injury during the World Cup. We played a lot better once he was gone. Everyone saw it, only Loew (for whatever reasons) couldn't, until he had no choice.

Lets hope Durm uses this chance and convinces everyone who didn't yet see his greatness!
Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 days ago
It's crazy how we've all come to love Durm so quickly. I like Schmelle, but Durm is potentially twice the player he is and shows that talent most games. He's bound to become a true world class left-back soon
Anyu89 (Borussia Dortmund) 4 days ago
Great runs again by Durm today!

Carlos Stranderg failed the medical evaluation and will not be joining us.... Kind of a bummer.

Jeroen (Barcelona) 4 days ago
I don't know.... I saw some of his highlights and they didn't impress me a lot. He looks like a dime in a dozen sort of player. They call him the Swedish Lukaku, but I played against Lukaku when he was 13 and watched him aged 16, and his skill and decision-making was miles ahead of Strandberg's. And skill and decision-making are two of his lesser qualities, lol
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 days ago
He seems a type of player we don't currently have in our squad and if Klopp was willing to spend 3m on an 18 year old striker, he must be something pretty special. For the transfer not to go through because of a failed medical test is a big bummer, but better be safe than sorry I guess.

I also don't think it's quite fair to compare a player that you've only seen in youtube videos to a player you've watched and experienced live over many years.... Who knows what Strandberg will bring to the table in the future? We might be missing out on a future world class player or we might never hear of this kid again. But Klopp's open interest in him alone was enough to get me excited to see him join our youth squad. Meh, definitely not the last young talent that we'll be linked with, so no biggie.
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 days ago
Yeah, if Kloppo himself said he's worth 3m, I'll immediately believe him. But youtube usually tends to only show good stuff from players, and Strandberg didn't look better than an ordinary powerful striker in the Belgian second division to me

Is Immobile a starter for you guys? And do you think he will get lots of goals?
Obskurum (Borussia Dortmund) 5 days ago
I think yes, absolutely. In 2 or 3 games he will start to show his goal hunger
Jimmybreeze (Manchester United) 5 days ago
He scored 23 goals in all competitions last season for Torino. I think he's going to be a bargain and he's in my team

Footballer by day, crime-fighting vigilante by night.

Auba-man.... Auba-man.... Au.... Ba. Maaaan!

Personally, I think he should have gone with "the flash" but nice mask anyways
Jeroen (Barcelona) 6 days ago
Lol, yeah, he's definitely Dortmund's flash. But he's the master of making sneaky infiltrating runs too, so either Spiderman or Batman would've been fitting too
