059 2019/wk03 - First tests on the road

The Bundesliga is back and Gladbach is being tested straight away by Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04 in away games, whereas Augsburg will visit the third-place Foals in between to collect points from Dieter Hecking’s side to avoid relegation. Manuel talks you through these match-ups, but only after he’s revisited the very successful Hinrunde for Borussia and the talking points of the winter break.

058 2018/wk49 - The midfield dreamteam

Manuel briefly discusses the 4-1 victory over Hannover 96 and the 0-2 defeat to RB Leipzig before focussing on the current midfield constellation in the team. Why is the – still undefeated – axis Hofmann-Strobl-Neuhaus preferred to the likes of Zakaria and Kramer? Furthermore, will the Foals see a slump in form after Matthias Ginter’s head injury, which will see him out for two months at minimum?

057 2018/wk46 - What a time to be a foal

Gladbach remains no.2 in German football after a convincing 3-1 victory over Werder Bremen, with top transfer Alassane Plea netting three goals at the Weser. Previously, Gladbach had beaten Mainz (4-0) and Duesseldorf (3-0) at home, and lost to Freiburg (1-3) and, on a dark night at Borussia-Park, 0-5 to Rhine rivals Bayer Leverkusen. Manuel talks you through these matches and gives a brief outlook on the next match vs. Hannover 96 after the international matches break.

056 2018/wk40 - Run, Jonas, Run

Vollraute abroad takes a look at Gladbach’s performances up to the second break for the national squad fixtures: the last of several convincing performances saw the Foals take all three points from Bayern Munich (3-0) at the Allianz-Arena – the highest defeat for Bayern at home since 2005 and the first away win for Borussia since February! Manuel highlights the outstanding players of recent weeks and how the 4-3-3 system have changed things for better for coach Dieter Hecking. On third place, Gladbach will host Mainz at home after the international break to take a sweep at leaders Borussia Dortmund.

055 2018/wk36 - More, PLEAse!

Good start to the 18/19 season for Gladbach with an emphatic 11-1 win in the Cup competition against Hastedt and an eventually convincing home victory on Matchday 1, 2-0 to highly rated Bayer Levekusen. The Foals then travelled to Augsburg where 23€M signing Allasane Plea bagged a goal to get the team a 1-1 draw. Manuel talks you through these games and takes a look at both the new signings and the new 4-3-3, and how the squad adapts to this new formation.

054 2018/wk54 - Season wrap-up

Long time no hear! Sorry for that, we’ve been very busy last weeks and months, however, it’s never too late to talk you through the wrap-up of the last season. Although, a little distance to the season finale might be an advantage.

Let’s see, Manuel talks you through the season finale, looks on the performance of the squad and tries an outlook to the upcoming transfer window.

Thanks for your patience and your support during the past and hopefully you tune in again when your all news Borussia Mönchengladbach podcast returns after the WC.

053 2018/wk03 - Utterly disappointing

The pod is back with a bang – the Rhine derby is on the menu, and boy was it a rotten menu. A 1-2 defeat to archrivals Cologne with the decisive goal in the last seconds of the match leaves all Borussia supports heartbroken. Raffael had equalized for the Foals, but an overall meek performance was, again, not enough to beat a feisty opposition. Manuel runs you through the game and quickly discusses the two talking points of the winter break, the signing of Reece Oxford and Max Eberl’s vocal outburst against the supporters during the HSV match.

052 2017/wk44 - The Good - The Bad - The Ugly

Borussia on sixth position after matchday ten in the Bundesliga, last sixteen in the DFB cup. But it has been a continuation of the ups and downs we’ve seen at the beginning of the season – great win in Hoffenheim, biggest defeat at Borussia-Park history against Leverkusen (1-5). Manuel summarizes the six games and discusses the take home messages from these past couple of weeks.

051 2017/wk37 - Average again

Four matchdays into the season and Borussia M’gladbach is ranked one place lower than in the 16/17 season on tenth position. A strong comeback from two Leipzig leads to get a point from the 2-2 draw to RB was preceded by a weak performance and a loss to Franfurt at home and a late equalizer in Augsburg against the Foals (2-2). Still, the 2-1 cup win against Essen and the convincing 1-0 in the derby against struggling Cologne are positives of the first five weeks of the season, which undoubtedly have seen Borussia being ‘on’ and ‘off’ in terms of performance. Manuel rounds up these first games and highlights the talking points regarding squad, injured players and individual performances.
