It is with a bit of a heavy heart that I announce that I’ll stop blogging for the Borussia Dortmund Offside henceforth.
For one, I simply feel I don’t have the time to invest as much as I want to into this blog, and I also find just blogging about one club to be a bit monotonous. As to SBN well, the least said the better.
Still, I’m very happy about the last two years, it’s been great years to be a BVB- Supporter! Long may it continue.
Thanks also to all the readers and commentators on this blog!
Hugs and Heja BVB
PS: If anyone would like to continue with this blog, feel free to contact SNB.
Dortmund won 2-0 against Gladbach. So, this means that the old German champions are the new German champions…
Just a very short update, because I have a lot of stuff going on.
This probably was one of the most highly anticipated matches of the Bundesliga season, and Dortmund came away with a one- nil victory that was just about deserved.
Now, the draw against Stuttgart last weekend means that Bayern are closing in on our lead. It’s just three points seperating us and the Bavarians, plus they have a better goal- difference.
The last few weeks it really felt as though Dortmund was a bit of a machine, grinding out vital but uninspiring wins to the keep up the distance to Bayern Munich.
Dortmund will face Bayern in the final of this season’s DFB Pokal, i.e. the German FA Cup.
After a bit of a disappointing result last weekend (0-0 against Augsburg), Dortmund host Werder Bremen at the Westfalenstadion. Dortmund is still 5 points clear at the top of the table, but personally I feel that we have not played that convincing since the winterbreak. Many of the wins have been rather laboured, and last weekend the performance was the same.
Next up Dortmund take on Augsburg. We won the first game against them comfortably against the newly promoted team, with 4-0, but it is a different Augsburg we are facing this time around. Since the start of the second half of the season, Augsburg have showed much improved form, and have even moved off the bottom of the table.
Got a lot going on currently, so this post will be very short. Anyways, this weekend was perfect for Dortmund, all of the other top teams (Gladbach, Bayern, Schalke) lost while Dortmund won 2-1 against Mainz, which means that we are now seven (!) points cear at the top of the table. Kuba and Kagawa scored for Dortmund, Zidan for Mainz (six goals in six games for Mainz now!). Also pleasing to see was Gündogans performance in mid- field.
