„So good to be back home again” – Al Green had it spot on in arguably the most tender and loving hommage ever to very probably the greatest club in the world. (Check out the lyrics – you’ll see.)
You know when there’s been a heatwave and you’re so grateful for the first somewhat cooler day for what seems like an age?
That’s what it’s like to be a Borussia Mönchengladbach aficionado at the moment. After two to three years too close to the heat, everyone seems relieved to be back where we belong, with a modest and sensible coach and manager promising a return to what it means to be the club from the Lower Rhine. And, of course, it’s so good to be back with you again, dear listeners.
The contents of our latest humble (yet brilliant) offering: the Bundesliga matches against Hoffenheim and Schalke, the first round in the national cup, the new players (especially the very promising debut by Ko Itakura), the new-old Borussia spirit once again informing our team, developments in tactics and formation, and a look forward to the home match against Hertha BSC Berlin.
The legendary goal is Raffael’s belter against Hertha in Berlin in 2017. Otherwise worshipped for his delicate, thoughtful and breathtaking dribbling, with which he seemed to caress the ball into goal, football god Raffael proved he could also score by thumping the ball really, really hard from very far away, too.
Host: Manuel Breuer
