Good to see FC Köln back in the top league. 
Go over more in details as the season goes on but here is little Dortmund preview for Ulrich. 


if i were you i wouldn't publish that list though, i don't even know where to start my critics. bayern might but maybe not win again this season but this season is less likely than last one. but Schalke on 2nd? Confused i don't know what Bremen did to you to be on 4th spot but they are definatley ahead of Schalke and on Bayerns tail big time. Stuttgart on 3rd Smile well we'll see, they had a strong start which is uncommon, but it will be good if it remains like that, i think after the last season the position of our coach is maybe not very secure even if there was no critics but you'll never know in football and his position was never secure in the first place. the rest of the clubs on your list are not even worth a single comment. you've forgotten two clubs big time: Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim. yeah they are "new" names sort of but those two clubs, particularly Hoffenheim have the bayern factor, that is a uber-rich sponsor big time. Wolfsburg has a good coach that doesn't need much itnro and their cadre was well last year and with Volkswagen as sponsor they want to attack the UEFA Cup with flying colours. and Hoffenheim, they play their first ever season in the Bundesliga, just like they emerged from obscurity and had a sudden rise thanks to money money money from a generous sponsor. their story of sucess would be worth a movie but no it isn't, money don't shoot goals as they say but money gets you good players, and those shoot the goals, so yes, money does dominate the bUndesliga big time. this is also my big grudge this season and certainly i won't watch it as excited as i would otherwise. Hoffenheim, my new pet hate after Bayern will most likely establsih themselves in the Bundesliga just like Bayern did (remember it was money again, Munichs traditional major club is 1860 München, as the name suggests a club with tradition). Ok my rant is finished :P


looking back at the beginning of the season, yeah you can call me The Prophet if you like... almost everything i predicted happened.

not so big surprise, moeny does shoot goals afterall. Stuttgart after first round was 10th and ended 3rd. too bad Dortmund narrowly missed the UEFA Cup or European League or whatever they call it next.

Dzeko is actually doing very well in the BiH national team, too. Something I am more happy about, :), than the Wolfsburg success. Them making it to the World Cup could make up for Bayern's failures easily.

Good for Wolfsburg. I hope that they won't fall apart, since it should be interesting to watch their trio of Misimović, Džeko, and Grafite, next year in CL, playing against the best European defences.

it's now highly unlikely Bayern is going to win this season, i'm not sure yet who will make it. as for DFB Cup i assume Bremen will make it.

What interesting season. Bayern who was almost sure favourite is not doing so well as expected. Hertha is ahead and 4 points behind Bayern, Hoffenheim, VFL and HSV. Who would have thought that Bayern having Toni, Ribery, Podolski, Klose, Ze Roberto will struggle for the second spot after 23 matches. Is it a coach or do they have similar problem like Real when it became too Galactic. Still I think Bayern should win it though I would prefer HSV from the top 5 teams.

Tomorrow the Bundesliga will start the second half of season and King kang is still missed.

So be it. let the teams play, as long as they do have enough money.

yeah and Stuttgart is back in the upper half, but missing ten points on the leading team Dead. with both Freiburg and Karlsruhe winning, my dream of 4 teams from Baden-Württemberg in the Bundesliga draws closer again.

Bayern 1st in Champions League and top 4 in the Bundesliga. Now all that needs to happen is Obama to win for this to be a rather good day. Smile

I believe we can pull together and get back to 1st place and get another Bundesliga trophy.

I have just read exactly the same about Hopp in polish newspaper. They say he is uncomparable to Abramowich. He run his club since 1990 and invested about 150 mio, Abromowich probably paid more for new players in his first year. I will keep my fingers crossed for Hoffenheim. And besides better them to win than Bayern.

We could name them Chelheim or Hoffensea. I don't like these type of clubs. If the owner looses his interest they disappear as fast as they came, remember Homburg or others in former times. At least I am happy that it is a German owner and not a Russian or Ghaddafi or a Sheik.

Europe has to prepare. After 11 matchdays the promoted team of Hoffenheim is leading the schedule.
 
The team from provincial backwater, from a town, that hasn't more than 3750 habitants, was climbing from the lowest to the highest division within 15 years.
 
Now, while the established teams like Bremen and Bayern München all cultivate their internal fights, Hoffenheim and another "retort" team of leverkusen, are leading the Bundesliga.
 
Hoffenheim , sponsored by the owner of SAP, the largest European software enterprise, will do the next step after the running season and have their first match in an European football competition, i'm sure.
Let's watch the developing.

All teams of the Bundesliga were promoted to the next round at the UEFA-CUP. All teams, Schalke, Hamburg, Wolfsburg and Stuttgart but my beloved Borussia Dortmund not!
Dortmund was leading last night in Udine (Italy) after regular and extra time by 2 to 0, for the first match in Dortmund two weeks ago Dortmund lost by 0:2, a penalty shoot out had to find out the winner.
Two players of Dortmund missed the goal. Sadness is my only feelingCryCryCry
