Panic.... Panic
Throw in
Game over

Not a promising start for the new era. A 1-0 win. A lot of work to do. I didn't watch it but from what I read, our defence needs a lot of work
Kazuki (Liverpool) 18 hours ago
Everyone looked really rusty tbh and I had a feeling they were underestimating the opponents
Gonzaga101 (Borussia Dortmund) 18 hours ago
Good to know.... Still would like to see a better result, I really think we will come out and get a 4-0 5-0 result at home
Kazuki (Liverpool) 18 hours ago
Did anyone watch the game until now? How come we the score is 0:1 goal when almost all of the players are starters?
I'm starting to watch right now but only 15 min left
Deinonychus (Borussia Dortmund) 18 hours ago
Basically we had about 90% posession for 60 minutes of the game and Wolfsberg didn't really do anything but defend and we didn't put too much into it either especially after the 1:0
Then from the 60th minute on Wolfsberg started doing something gained confidence and we didn't really handle that too well as you've seen yourself

Well that was expected Pre-season is always a bit of a drag for us as Italian teams start later
Gonzaga101 (Borussia Dortmund) 4 days ago
Agreed. That game just showed the bvb started their training camp a little early. I am happy my team "won", but bvb still has some work to do before the bundesliga starts

I still really have to adapt to not seeing Kloppo on the sidelines

Tuchel is the best possible replacement for Klopp though, but you know.... Kloppo was Kloppo. And I miss him

Great play from us in the first half, it could have been 2 or 3-0 if Buffon wasn't performing heroics on the field. After watching this I'm seriously excited about the season that comes!
Jeroen (Barcelona) 5 days ago
Yup, great first half against the champions league finalists!

Hope to see more young players in the second half.

Edit: 2-0!
KristijanT (Borussia Dortmund) 6 days ago
Guys, though, what do you think of our Europa League campaign this season though?
I mean, not to be arrogant or something, and I really hope that these words don't come back to haunt me, but I just don't see anyone in the competition being capable of beating us if we play some quality football like we did the past seasons (last season being an exception of course, at least the first half of it).
Jeroen (Barcelona) 5 days ago
Of course we can be beaten. In fact, I'd say odds of winning it are 'only' about 10%, which probably are some of the highest odds of any given team in the EL.

Teams like the Spanish sub-top teams are more consistently good than us in the past two years. Just think about all the teams in the champions league who could end up 3rd in their group and drop to the EL as well: tons of teams with equally strong players as ours
Malik (Barcelona) 5 days ago
Lot will depend on which teams join EL from champions league group stages
Spigy (Juventus) 5 days ago
It's easy to think you are the best in EL, but even with a home final we couldn't get motivated enough...
KristijanT (Borussia Dortmund) 3 days ago
Yeah, well, guys, you are right, but I just can't help being too optimistic about the upcoming season haha

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Adrian Ramos
KristijanT (Borussia Dortmund) 6 days ago
Yeah and reportedly we want 16m pounds for him.... And considering it's an English club, they may actually pay haha
If that happens I'm gonna' dance
Jeroen (Barcelona) 5 days ago
Lol, that would be a ridiculous amount of money for him considering he played so little
Gonzaga101 (Borussia Dortmund) 1 week ago
So I read in 17/18 bundesliga.... More games will be played on Sunday and Mondays. Just like in the EPL.

Not a fan of this AT ALL!
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
WTF? WHY?    Do people just not work anymore?
Malik (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Bit surprised, be. Liga was the only league that had matches on Friday, now if recall properly some other leagues are gona have matches on Friday, with possibility on one clasico

What do you guys think of Grosskreutz's situation?

Personally, I'd like to see his contract extended, as he's that kind of a guy that always gives his all on the pitch and even though he doesn't have any special skill attributes, he's versatile and if we have problems with injuries we could put him just anywhere haha
And plus he's a club fan, and he has never expressed any frustration because of his lack of play, as far as I've heard
Gonzaga101 (Borussia Dortmund) 1 week ago
I like Kevin, but I am on the fence on this one. Part of my loves him and wants him to stay with bvb. He has been a boyhood fan of the club since birth. On the other hand, I think he deserves playing time. He definitely won't be a starter for bvb. So I guess I'm OK with whatever happens
UWMike (Borussia Dortmund) 1 week ago
As a human I'd be very sad to see him go. As a football fan, I'd be about as sad as you would be if you lost a backup at rb/lb. With our midfield as stacked as it is, that's about the only position I can see him getting any BuLi playing time in. And even that assumes that one of Pische or Schmelzer or Durm gets injured. I love Kevin, but if he doesn't start playing regularly soon, then I think his best years are behind him
Kazuki (Liverpool) 1 week ago
I would rather he stay. He's a very versatile player who can play in the midfield and defence as well. With the amount of injuries that happen to Schmelzer and Piszcek I would be surprised if he's allowed to leave. Don't ya'll think he's better than Durm or Dudziak atm?
UWMike (Borussia Dortmund) 1 week ago
The objective answer to your question is 'no'. Maybe a harder worker, but he's definitely not better than Durm and while he's far more experienced than Dudziak, he's not a good enough reason to leave Dudziak on the bench and stunt his growth
Jeroen (Barcelona) 1 week ago
Yeah, I agree with what most of you said. Kevin is a decent player, but no more than a utility player for a team like Dortmund. If we keep him, I think we have to make it clear he won't play a lot and will be used only sporadically as a sub or replacement wherever we need him.

He's a winger by trade, but we have much better options there and the fullbacks we have are better too (though I think he played his best games as a fullback for us)

Anyways, just a little bit of unrelated funny I thought I'd share.
