Please, can we stop the season right now?
Well, we predicted a “difficult” season in vollraute abroad #081, but this is ridiculous!
“Everything falls apart” could be an alternative title to Vollraute abroad #087 (and “From the gut” the soundtrack) as could “50 ways to torture a football fan”, or “Explain the inexplicable”. We sincerely hope that you, the dedicated listeners, appreciate the superhuman mental strength it took to recapitulate every single match since our win in Munich against Bayern (just thought I’d mention that), each one in its own way an evil, sadistic exercise in crushing all hope and optimism you might have held on to as a fan of still possibly the greatest club in the world.
Our legendary goal comes from a different era, when we had a team that Lucien Favre had formed, furbished, adjusted, oiled and tweaked until it was a gleaming, thunderous, unstoppable (except through foul play – curse you, Sevilla!) machine that powered through the Rückrunde on its way to a 3rd place in the league. Max Kruse’s goal in the 90th minute of the home match against Wolfsburg on 26th April 2015 (who will be paying us a visit next Saturday) is a fine example of the inexorable football that never failed to bring our opponents to their knees that season, light years away from the current unprofessional and not in the least funny buffoonery that can only serve as a warning to future generations.
