    Default La Liga/Serie A/Bundesliga/Ligue Un & other World Football Thread

    The Match at Köln was highly entertaining, a six-goal thriller, even though FC Fizzypiß came out ahead of Das Billy Goats.

    Unsurprisingly in Europe’s most entertaining league, there were yet again no tedious 0-0 draws in this round of matches:



    And competition for European places is gathering pace; everyone down to Schalke is still in with a chance of European football next season, although form-wise, Die Königsblauen are sinking like a stone at present:



    Speaking of 1. FC Köln, Das Billy Goats, who were many pundits‘ favourite for the drop, are enjoying a solid season after some early struggles following their promotion, and sit comfortably in mid table, needing probably only four points from their remaining five matches to ensure Bundesliga football again next season, coach Markus Gisdol can be happy with that.

    For the 1.FC Union Berlin fans, four points ahead of Düsseldorf who currently sit in the relegation Play-off in 16th place, you probably need two more wins to be safe (as you have a better goal difference by nine goals, than Fortunen, although Uwe Rösler does have Düsseldorf picking up points:



    Werder Bremen have the most to worry about; already two points off of Düsseldorf and three from Mainz (and safety) albeit with a game in hand. SC Paderborn though look doomed, after their solitary season in the top flight, but given their budget is minuscule (they spent only €300k on transfers!) they will look to reinforce in the 2. Bundesliga next term, and go again.

    Yes. Since serial firefighter Bruno Labbadia was appointed coach, they’ve actually been playing some decent stuff and picking up points, after the disastrous Jürgen Klinsmann experiment, where they played at times like a bunch of strangers who’d been locked in a Meth Lab for a weekend.

    Good to see though, the capital deserves a couple of clubs to get a proper rivalry going and the first match between Hertha and Union was properly tasty.

    Good on him, I say.
    The DFB have announced that there will be no action at all taken against Jadon Sancho, Marcel Thuram, and Weston McKennie, following their public demonstrations of support for George Floyd during this past weekends‘ round of matches.

    Sancho, regular readers will recall, threw off his shirt to reveal a „Justice for George Floyd“ message on his T-Shirt after scoring (for which he was booked); Marcel Thuram symbolically „took a knee“ after scoring a goal, and McKennie wore a „Justice for George Floyd“ Armband during Schalke‘s Match.

    Indeed, the DFB Statement was very supportive of the players concerned using their profile to bring attention to such a worthwhile cause. Well done, DFB.

    (And it’s not often I’d say that).

    In other German news; SG Dynamo Dresden, rock-bottom of the 2. Bundesliga and looking like an absolute certainty for demotion to the 3. Liga, have announced that they will not renew the contract of Managing Director Ralf Minge after the end of June.

    Minge is reported to have said he „cannot understand it“ of the decision.

    Ralf mate - look at the table.

    Shame to see Dynamo doing so badly again. Dresden is a cracking city... what's left of it anyway.

    Dangerous precedent set, they (and other similar organisations) will be under pressure to relax the rules on all political statements now!

    I agree. A bit of a mess when you start saying, “nobody can do this, but this is important enough for you to be able to do it this time”

    People will just have to hope the German FA agree with them on the importance of whatever they are protesting next time.

    Either ban all political statements or let footballers write what they want on their vests

    Yet they are happy to use his image on their website and promotional material. A warning or quiet word may have sufficed?

    Balotelli fired from Brescia because he didn't return to training.

    An option in the summer? Wouldn't be dull at least.

    The artificial crowd noise is far better than the eerie silence.

    Now, if they could just turn it up to drown out Darren Fletcher.

    The amount of money that haircut cost him, it bloody ought to.

    Are they metal fences behind the goal?

    The Westfalenstadion has metal fencing behind the goals (with gates in) and large catch-nets to keep errant balls from going into the crowd.

    The famed Südtribune standing-section has fences in front of it too.

    I wish BT Sport would also show some of the Portuguese League and Greek too.

    You can watch a lot of European games on bet365 and probably other betting sites too.
