despite the fact I didn't see a real good 90 mins. performance in months most results are pretty pleasing. Last nights Pokal win beeing no exception.
Would have fancied a couple more goals over all, but hey, not complaining.
Very happy in fact. :daumenhoch:
I'm very happy as well. Just need to keep it going. I'll take Top 3 this season and be super happy! :animrgreen2:

Yes, now I'm back..

Hermann looked great against the US.

Hearing rumors that we will sign Drmic - I think that would be a great move.

Done! :winker:

Some of us aren't happy with the recruiting results this time. The expectations are growing thus we are now playing with the best teams in Europe. Time will tell and I'm quite confident that the management did a good job as they did the past four years.

Yes, glad we got Drmic. Stindl is also good business. The young defenders will probably amount to talent, but not sure they are ready just yet.

Any other rumors?

No - but yes the young talents aren't decided to "replace" other players soon but to learn Bundesliga and to play a role in the next one or two saisons.
"finished" players aren't affordable anymore for Borussia and approximate the other ~13 teams in the Bundesliga due to the fact that we don't have a sponsor that pumps Millions into the clubs and the english PL finalized TV contracts for Billions for the next years. That mucks up the price and yearly salary for even young players. Borussia is now moving to get promising european talents before they become unaffordable.

One remark, Borussia has a remarkable mature management team. Everything is in good hands and we are moving towards a mature Bundesliga 5th slowly but remarkable. We almost went down 4 years ago. That's what the trainer tries to keep in mind before the expectations are growing too much.

We Fans need to be patient - and we have a glorious time now :daumenhoch:

No argument from me. Really good plan of attack, build now with youth ready to take over in a couple of years.

Doesn't the kid from Basel have some top division experience?

Three new young talents have joined the club recently.

Two from FC Zürich:

(1) Nico Elvedi (18 years old)

A center back which is already experienced in Europe League games 2014/2015. In this cup he played against Borussia (1:1, 3:0 for Borussia :animrgreen: )

(2) Djibril Sow (18)

Don't even think about to ask me how to pronounce his forename :noidea:
He is a midfielder and is planned to support the U23.

One from UK:

(3) Mandela Egbo (17)

He joint from Crystal Palace and is also preliminary intended for the U23.

If you ask Mr. Google you will find out that all of them are been seen as one of the biggest talents in their countries according to their ages.

Good signings - but mostly for the future.

Drmic and Stindl will be very valuable cogs this season.

That was quick!

We also should have our hopes in Thorgan Hazard and all those which did not get enough play time last year. Could be a glorious season for (to?) all of us.

Exactly. I'm looking forward to watch him develop. He's going to be very exciting.

Hey Corm!

Want to hear a cool story?

Been working in Hartford, CT the past few months. My new venture puts our business in the public eye.

Well someone heard the news, and emailed me... and the guy turns out to be a Gladbacher!!!! We watched the season finale at his house, and have been chatting about the team for the past few months. Pretty cool!

What do other people in your countries say about Borussia? Do they remember the club and the 70s?

Of course, they are everywhere. :animrgreen2: Brilliant.

There might be a few of his 320 million fellow americans that do. :wink:
-
Over here in Ireland only some of the over 50's have a fair idea, mostly Liverpool supporters.
If it comes down to the name 'Borussia' alone they know 'Dortmund' from the champions league coverage.
But this will change pretty soon!!!
There's only one Borussia. :schildborussia:

Most of the commentary is for the EPL, but with Fox putting the Bundesliga on tv this year, that will change.

Bayern and BvB dominate the talk, with Kaiserslautern having a fair number of supporters - mostly from the military bases, but there are pockets of support for Gladbach.

Fabian Johnson helps, and if Mario Rodriguez ever makes the first team, then a bunch will follow. Bradley and Keller did bring some interest to the club.

hehe.. Nah, probably a top Yank or up and coming talent... Dortmund has Christian Pulisic, he's going to be a star.
