VRA021 – 2015/wk51 – Ups and downs

A week with lots of ups and downs: First, Gladbach defeated Bayern Munich in a true Bundesliga upset 3-1, the first loss for Bayern of the entire season, when a few days later a 2-1 lead to Manchester City was converted into a 2-4 loss within six minutes, as the Blues sealed Borussia’s exit from European football for the season. On the back of Champions-League elimination, Bayer Leverkusen then shocked André Schuberts side, beating the Foals 5-0 in what was in turn the fist defeat for Schubert as Gladbach coach in the Bundesliga.

VRA020 – 2015/wk49 – Still Unbeaten

Still unbeaten in the Bundesliga under now-headcoach André Schubert and a convincing 4-2 against Sevilla in the Champions League, keeping Borussia
in the race for 3rd place in the group to qualify for the Europa League. A hard-fought 2-1 victory over Hannover 96 was followed by a 3-3 thriller at Hoffenheim, where goals from Josip Drmic and Fabian Johnson brought Gladbach back from being 1-3 down. Manuel talks you through the matches, before previewing the upcoming classic against Champions Bayern Munich at Borussia-Park and the last CL-group stage match away to Manchester City.

VRA019 – 2015/wk45 – Winning Streak Ends

The winning streak under André Schubert had come to an end, after the convincing 4-1 away victory at Hertha BSC Berlin the Foals drew to promoted
FC Ingolstadt at Borussia-Park 0-0. Still, good times at the club, back on sixth in the League and an impressive performance in the Champions League
against Juventus (1-1), which eliminates Borussia from the competition, unfortunately, but the race for 3rd spot which secures survival in the Europa League
is still wide open. In the German DFB-Cup, Borussia advanced to the round of last 16 with a 2-0 win at Schalke 04! Manuel talks you through all four encounters.
Thanks for listening and spread the word!

VRA018 – 2015/wk44 – Good Luck Andre

Another successful week for the Foals, as Eintracht Frankfurt was comprehensibly dealt with on their own ground (5-1), before Gladbach secured their first ever Champions League point by goalless drawing to Juventus at Turin! This was followed by a 3-1 win over Schalke, with an outstanding performance by right back Julian Korb, scoring his first ever goal for Borussia. Sadly, Andre Hahn was badly injured and has to be ruled out for months to come. Manuel guides you through the matches.
Thanks for listening and spread the word!

VRA016 – 2015/wk39 – Demise and resurrection

Its has been an unbelievable week at Borussia-Park, the 0-1 loss to Cologne in the Rhine-Derby was followed by the most shocking of all events for Borussia-Fans, manager Lucien Favre resigned despite board and sporting director trying to hold onto the Swiss! There was no time for feeling sorry about this, however, as Augsburg came to Borussia-Park for matchday 6 last Wednesday.
And the team of current manager Andre Schubert showed massive signs of improvement, winning for the first time this season, 4-2, with a remarkable four goals scored after 21minutes! The away match to Stuttgart was equally successful, as Borussia took another three points with the 3-1 win to VfB. Quite a debut for Schubert at Borussia’s first squad, which he will now lead into the second Champions League match of the season, at home to Manchester City!

Thank you Ibra Traoré :-)

VRA013 – 2015/wk35 – Groups we have

This week’s show is all about the CL group stage draw, and Borussia was again unlucky, being drawn into Group D, facing Manchester City, Italian champions Juventus Turin and reigning Europa League winners Sevilla FC, who had eliminated Borussia in last season’s KO-round clash on their way to clutching the title.

Aftwards, Manu briefly talks about the second loss of the season, the disappointing 1-2 at home to Mainz, before previewing the match against Werder.

At the end, the newest member of the vollraute-podcast family, the French language “Parlez vous Borussia”, is introduced!

VRA012 – 2015/wk34 – Totally Ungladbach

Despite matchday 1 of the Bundesliga turning into a right nightmare for the foals losing 0-4 to Dortmund, Manuel got together with BVB-writer (@espnfc) and podcaster Stephan Buczko (@bvbawesome) to do a double feature that also appeared on his @yellowwallpod episode. Where did it all go wrong for Gladbach, what worked well for hosts BvB? After the detailed round-up of the match, Manuel briefly goes over the season home debut v Mainz on Sunday and new Hertha signing Nico Schulz.

Thank you Ibra Traoré :-)
