    Gonna be great 2 last months, albeit Bayern look to have the edge now. Dortmund didn't play well at all and have been crap for about 1 months overall. They are shitting the bed big time.

    Bayern will knock the scouse out. They’re in such a good moment, having climbed the summit of the bundesliga when a few months ago looked like they were going to sack Kovać.

    Great turnaround, and moreover the scouse have been choking since January.

    Every club should be worried when playing Bayern Munich. Okay, all clubs which don’t have Inzaghi (that fecker...).

    They will be missing Kimmich which is a huge blow to them. Hopefully Alaba is able to make it.

    Wolfsburg until today was the second best away team with less goals against (13) than Bayern (15)...

    hehe :)

    There are players who are faster than Müller. There are players who score more than Müller. There certainly are players more technical than Müller. But: A team *with* Müller in it will always be better than a team without him. Löw is a fool. But he may have done Bayern a favour, as all three of the outcasts will work twice as hard now to prove him wrong.

    Hannover was pretty unlucky today. For the first time in ages they had a good game and lost 2-3 against Leverkusen. And then there's the weather preventing a goal from Hannover ... streamable.com/oi61q Now that's an unlucky day. Still cruely funny to watch.

    The game should've never been allowed to start. These were no conditions for professional football. It's the second time we played under such conditions against a team fighting relegation by the way. Our last match against Nuremberg was similar, just with rain instead of snow.

    I hadn't understood what you were saying about the weather. But the Guardian posted a video too:



    That's simply outrageous :lol:

    No idea what the Dusseldorf keeper was doing there.

    Yeah that was without doubt the correct decision. The defender even tries to put his arm further behind his back.

    Both keepers are having good games. Pitch is a bit shite, though.

    The race for the 3rd/4th spot is interesting as well here:

    Gladbach 46
    Leipzig 46
    Frankfurt 43
    Leverkusen 42

    Despite having big problems all over the place Schalke runs into the next PR desaster. They got a fight with Effenberg, cause he revealed that some years ago they (Tönnies in his hybris as their boss) wanted to hire him.
    You watch this Club and shaking your head and have to laugh. They still are in danger of relegation, could happen anything. Personaly, iam looking forward to an epic endgame Schalke vs Stuttgart fighting for staying in the league.

    Gladbach drop massive points in the race for the Champions League. If Frankfurt win they go just 1 point behind them now.

    The Bundesliga must hope Frankfurt will play CL football next season.....Mönchengladbach would be a disaster in the CL.

    Would be another Schalke. You know you’re bad when you see Porto struggling more at home against Galatasaray than Schalke. Leverkusen under Bosz looks interesting at least from the feedback I receive, can’t say I watch Bundesliga.

    Well that depends a lot on whether they are able to hold on to their star players like Jovic, Rebic and Haller. Does look like they'll lose atleast one, which would make them much weaker next season.

    What a fecking joke of a penalty call. How the feck was that a penalty from so close when it was going to hit his face? VAR was obviously not going to rescend that because it did hit Weigl's hand.

    So? You'd let the ball hit you in the face? Or testes? It's a natural reaction to protect your face. He wasn't preventing it from going past him.

    There's no rule that allows you to protect your face with your hand.

    Strange game so far, very entertaining but full of mistakes.

    You can't raise your hand like that. That's why you see defenders locking their hands behind their back to block shots.

    Dortmund ist scheisse.

    Hope that's correct to say "excellent".

    Your hand has to be in an unnatural position. His was because the ball was about to hit his face and he was protecting it.

    The video in slow motion does not nearly tell the story of how fast the ball was traveling.

    Youre confusing natural reflexes and natural arm position. His hand is not in a natural position.

    Lifting your hand to the chest/face area is an unnatural position. It's a textbook handball offense.
