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.

049 2017/wk16 - Europe is far!

Two wins, a draw and two defeats – a pretty average April sees Gladbach on tenth position in the League. But with four games to go, the Europa League is still only a couple of points away. Still, the debut of Laszlo Benes and the derby-win over Cologne were highlights. Manuel talks you through the matches and provides an overview over the team’s current status.

048 2017/wk13 - The Foals Train stands still

After several great wins, the Foals train came to a stand-still, losing 1-2 to Hamburg and 0-1 at home to top-of-the-league Bayern Munich. In between more disappointment, as Borussia crashed out of the Europa League against Schalke. A 2-2 draw at home saw Gladbach being eliminated on away goals after the 1-1 at Schalke. A tough Saturday night ‘Spitzenspiel’ lies now ahead of the team of Dieter Hecking. Manuel talks you through the matches.

047 2017/wk10 - Heck-Heck-Hooray

Borussia is climbing up the League table, with another three victories against Werder, Ingolstadt and Schalke, only losing narrowly to RB Leipzig. In the Cup competitions it has been equally successful, with Lars Stindl giving the club a magic European night after a comeback against Fiorentina. The Foals were 0-3 down on aggregate, only to score four goals in 16 minutes and a Stindl-hattrick. To round up a great month, Hamburg has been beaten 2-1 in the DFB-Cup quarter-finals. Borussia now faces Frankfurt at home in the semi-final of the competition. Manuel talks you through the games and gives a quick assessment of the key points to manager Dieter Hecking’s success.

046 2017/wk06 - Still unbeaten!

Two more victories in the bag for Dieter Hecking as the Foals beat Freiburg 3-0 in the Bundesliga only to advance to the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal with a 2-0 win over Greuther Fürth. The next round will be played at Hamburg on March 1st, but before that it’s Werder Bremen away, AC Fiorentina in the Europa League and a cracking home match on Sunday against RB Leipzig. Manuel talks you through both games.

044 2016/wk51 - Merry Hecking

Managerial change at the end of 2016 at Borussia Mönchengladbach: André Schubert, having only picked up 16 points in 16 matches with the Foals in the League, is replaced by Dieter Hecking. Two defeats by Augsburg and Wolfsburg meant the end for Schuberts stint after 62 matches with Borussia, helping them reach the Champions League and fourth Place in the League in Sommer. Manuel takes a quick look at the matches and talks about the change in personnel at Borussia-Park.
We wish all our listeners happy holidays and an exciting new year 2017!
