so uh how you guys lining up this season :P seems like you're pretty stacked up
My guess at Tuchel's first 11:

--------Auba--------
Reus---Gotze---Schurrle
----Weigl----Castro----
Guerreiro--Sokratis--Bartra--Piszczek
-------Burki--------

Dembele to start while Reus is still injured. I expect to see heavy rotation at the start of the season with Kagawa/Schmelzer/Durm/Ginter/Rode all getting good minutes. Mor, Pulisic, Merino will probably be reduced to substitute roles with maybe a chance of starting in the early rounds of the DFB Pokal. Same for Ramos, but that much everyone already knew. Leitner to be sold or loaned again. Same for Kuba (unfortunately). Passlack back to the reserves. The only one I have no idea about is Sahin. I can't see him being sold, but I also don't see him playing much.
-------Auba------
Reus---------Dembele
--- Götze -Castro----
-------- Rode ---------
Guer.--Papa--Bartra--piszu
-----------Bürki

in offense and midfield we've plenty of options. i think there will be a hell of rotation.

in some bundesliga matches i would like to see sth like this..


------Dembele------
Reus---Götze-- -Mor
--Weigl--Merino--
Guer.- Papa- Bartra Passlack
Bürki
im pretty delighted about our signings. espacially dembele and mor could be the little extra quality we need. in the near past i had the feeling that our players lost the ability to win dribblings and were passing all time. to create space i think, we need beside fast passing game also players, who can leave behind 1-3 players. thats what i missed last season. reus seemed to lost his faith and ability to dribble. thats why i am totally excited about dembele/mor.
hopefully the system doesn't change their way to play too much.
I really hope Auba is sold next year. I wish he silent already been sold and was replaced.

What I thought about this:

Yeah,I thought what he said was disrespectful.Like,okay,we get it once,it was your childhood dream to join Real Madrid and you promised your grandfather.But to keep repeating and repeating it...

What I think about this now:

I'm not quite sure about what to think now -- after Auba posted the message on his Instagram.

His message is written in really poor English,which probably means he didn't waste any time to make sure it's well-written but simply rushed to write it.I'd say the reception to his interview wasn't very good.

He mentions 'transforming words' but I'm not sure how could anyone 'transform' something so concrete -- that his dream is Real and he promised his grandfather.

He also says "and in any interviews I was honest with you to say that it was my dream since I'm young but not more." What the heck? Anyways,thanks for the confusion...

Meh, if he only stays one more season and we get at least 60m for him next summer I probably won't complain.

And yea. I don't get why he needs to keep repeating this over and over again.
60m? How many times will you sell your main players for dirt cheap? Gungodan for £20m, Mkhi for.. 30m?

With the current trend in the markets you guys can easily get €80m+ for him!
In case you haven't noticed, all of those players that have left for "dirt cheap" only had 1 year remaining on their contracts. So it was either that or lose them for free a year later. That's how numbers work.

As for Auba, next year he'll be 28, not exactly young for a striker who's main asset is speed. I'm sure if we sold him now we could get €80m, but next summer that depends on how his season goes.
I'm not sure that we will sell Auba anytime soon to be honest.Atleast not it is true that he would only leave BVB for Real(they are pretty well stacked with strikers,having Benzema -- at about Auba's age and Morata who is much younger).

I can't see him leaving for clubs like Arsenal (Wenger won't spend),Chelsea (they have Costa and Batshuayi),Liverpool(same reason),Man Utd(same reason) and countless others.

In short,no one needs a striker.
Oh, did both of them have only 1 year remaining? I didn't know that, sorry. But then you guys deserve more money for quality players.. longer contracts maybe? :P
Watzke said no more new signings will be unveiled this summer; so the rumours of us signing Mario Gómez seem to be untrue. Good; we have plenty of players, but I do feel the striker position could've used a great backup like him.
I think we're fine with Adrian Ramos.I kinda started to like the guy after he started scoring :D
Haha, what a coincidence! :D

I liked Ramos way before it was cool though :P I remember he destroyed us in 2012 (perhaps a bit sooner or later) with Hertha and I was impressed what kind of total striker he was. Turns out I was watching him at his very best, his technique isn't fantastic, but I still think he is underrated.
Also,do you think Pulisic will be sent on loan this season? I mean,Reus and Schurrle are our first-choice wingers,and even without them you've got another pair in Mor and Dembele.

He must be a little bit disappointed to see us signing so much wingers after he had a decent debut season(especially for a 17 year-old).
.
I have no idea TBH. He's too young for a loan to be a must. Personally, if I were Tuchel, I'd sit with him and ask him what he wants himself by telling him the truth: being happy with his progress last season as the coach, but not being able to promise him a lot of playing time this time around.

I would like to see him at Mainz one season.
"Personally, if I were Tuchel, I'd sit with him and ask him what he wants himself by telling him the truth: being happy with his progress last season as the coach, but not being able to promise him a lot of playing time this time around. ".... #JeroenforBVBCoach (after Tuchel leaves) :D

On a more serious note though,yeah,I think he could do great in Mainz(or any not-top-seven Bundesliga club for that matter).I think he should be loaned if Tuchel has no plans to play him in more than 2 matches this season.Damn Wolfsburg,why did you sell Schurrle...
+1
What do you guys think of Ginter? I mean,our RB position is filled,our DM position is filled and our CB position is also filled.

I wonder how will Tuchel play him (maybe rotating with Bartra/Sokratis but then there is also Bender there...).I hope we don't sell him because he's talented and has many years ahead of him.
+1
Selling Ginter would be madness; he was one of the best performers last season, and that too in a variety of positions.

I don't know why he wouldn't start ahead of any of our others CBs in the RCB positions. Subo has been out of it for so long in the past years and I think Ginter is better than anyone else in the team in that position now. And who's to say he won't be playing as a RB often? No guarantees Lukasz will always be fit and Durm isn't quite as good as Ginter IMHO either.

IMHO:
RB: Piszczek>Ginter>Durm>rest
CB: Subo>Ginter>Sok>Bartra>rest

Plenty of times Matthias will get the chance to start games I think; knowing our injury prone squad.
I think playing Ginter on RB kinda leaves us very weak on the right side.Note that we now won't have Mikhi who was THE ever-reliable winger when defending.And not to mention that playing Ginter on RB vs stronger teams like Leverkusen,Bayern and the European teams = suicide.I know,he's great when attacking but he's too slow for a RB IMO.

On the CB position,the problem is that you also have Bender,who signed until 2021.Now,I don't think he would sign knowing he's 4th choice.Also you have Bartra who comes from Barcelona because of lack of playing time.Also you have Sokratis who is very solid.And I don't rate Ginter really highly on CB...

But yeah,Ginter will probably get lots of playing time because of injuries.

Well, let's see what Tuchel has in store for us. Bartra might be the first choice along with Ginter, who knows? Youth first?
We'll certainly have to wait,but I can't do so without overthinking the possiblities before :D

Though,I think it might be Sock-Bartra partnership,with Ginter and Bender occasionally rotating with them(before important matches,vs weaker opponents ,DFB Pokal etc.)

Well chosen mhiki.. pffff
+8
Lol. At least he scored. But yeah, we are definitely the better team, for now. Doesn't mean a player can't try to join to the club of his dreams. United is still a more prestigious club, but their current state as a team is poor.

I can't imagine them not becoming a lot stronger quickly though. Look at all the players they're hauling in. Typical Mourinho: spend a few hundred million, win a title or two over the course of a few years.
dembele and mor looked good, will be keen to watch their development over the seasons. smart to get gotze and shurrle to shield some of the young forwards, give them space to grow. i think your squad looks stronger in attack this season despite losing mkhi and gundogan but i suppose time will tell.
If only football was about how good your club is at present time and not about how good another club was in its past.

relax guys, as i recall you lost 4-0 to liverpool last pre-season. it's just a friendly ;)
+2
^ That was 2 pre-seasons ago... And we all know how the rest of that season went.

-_-

+1
That was two seasons ago.And we all know how that went...

It is indeed just a friendly,but you can't deny that one can draw positives and negatives from such a match(other than fitness).

I,for one,have been totally amazed by Dembele and Mor and this match totally solidified my confidence in them.They're gonna be a smashing hit.In fact,I wouldn't be surprised if Schurrle became second fiddle to Dembele.

Also,I've been really skeptic about signing Rode and I'm not gonna scream all of a sudden "HE'S THE NEW INIESTA" or something but my view of him improved (even though he was playing against not very fit players,yeah,I know).

Also,Bartra looked solid and Weidenfeller didn't make a horrific blunder(that surprised me).

On the other side,Depay is proving to be a signing worth every single pound of the 5 million spent on him.The rest 20 were a waste of money :D

+1


+1
Yea, not sure we needed both Gotze AND Schurrle...

A midfield of Reus - Kagawa - Gotze, rotating with Dembele, Mor, Pulisic, and Castro? That sounds plenty deep to me.

I'm more concerned about the holding midfield roles. Weigl and ??? Sahin? Bender (I'm convinced that Tuchel wants him at CB for some reason)? Maybe Ginter? Are we hoping that Merino just walks into that spot? That central-defensive part of the park is a big question mark for me.
Man,we've made so much signings that we slowly start forgetting them...
Rode :D
:$

Dammit. You got me.
Confirm: Schurrle joins BVB !!

I know that many fans are just pissed off with Götze but the good thing is: he is back!
Hope he can flourish again under Tuchel. BVB will rock next season!
I don't think a lot of fans are really angry he's back, more like in doubt what to expect. And of course it tears open an old woubd, but perhaps so it can heal properly.
What if Götze was just holding back the whole time at Bayern, spying for us, adding strong laxatives to the Bayern players' food all the time to keep them 'injured'? And now he's back, with a €12m net profit.


Welcome back, traitor. You better redeem yourself.

Best thing about him is that Reus will be happier and eager to stay.
+5
So... is this like getting back with your ex. who left for a rich guy? XD
Your ex of whom you always thought she was the one, who made you a better person and vice versa. And then she left you for that arrogant rich guy all girls want for some reason, who then ditched her in turn because there was zero chemistry between them.
got a nice team there fellas, eh?
Cant wait for the season to begin
I just hope the players 'click' and we'll be spared of countless injuries.

Also, when will you guys sell Hummels to us again? They all return one day, you know :P
Not before he scores in our first clash of course (They all score,you know) :D
Gotze is a done deal..Happy you snatch him..Yes i understand he is considered as a "Judas" but he return, so the best thing for your club and player you will need to support him in order for him to regain his top form, and to make that transfer not a waste.. Then imagine if he can score in a CL Final and with his assist or goal he can make your beloved team to win that CL Cup, would you say no becoz he is a JUDAS or yes?? So hope your team continue to progress with those signings!!Cheers
