Oh right, having a German football team is the definition of fun. Ok! I'll pick... 🤔

Hertha have always been West. ;) 

True as far as the League is concerned, however a large percentage of their Support where trapped on the wrong side of the Wall, whilst they could hear the noise from their stadium on match days (which is/was a stone throw away) they were barred from attending the actual  games on mass, hence my soft spot for them.

Fortuna Dusseldorf for me.

 

Only because it's where the first series of Auf Weidersehen, Pet (the best TV prog ever) was set. 

 

Turned out the cast/crew never set foot in the city. The scenes of (West) Germany were shot in Hamburg and the building site and hut was on a film lot near London that, soon after, became Albert Square. 

 

Still fond of Fortuna, though. 

Visited Dusseldorf during the 2006 World Cup. Got my camera pinched at the top of the turm.  🤨

Quite right. Would've been horrible to experience that.

 

I remember being genuinely astounded when I found out they have never won a league title or German cup. They were champions in 1930 and 1931 of Germany, but it was a very different format and structure.

There's still hope yet Locky.
The last I heard they were having a new purpose built football stadium or planning to.
 
Thankfully we live in better times now, I think just about.
 
If anything ,1860 have the distinquishment of having even worse owners than us. over the  years.
They are the Munich city team whilst Bayern tend to be viewed as  the Bavarian " national side" 
They have a huge latent support, if they could ever get their act together, a bit like Hearts.
 
I like my trips to Munich,  hence the interest.

Hopefully it is a good watch, but after lasting 5mins watching 'behind closed doors' games in CL/EL watching football in an empty stadium on tv is dire.

 

Right now, with being starved of football of any kind i'll give it a go.

Watching the dortmund game, is quite weird. I've watched games played 'behind closed doors' before but there was usually at least a handful of people present for those, this is proper empty :lol:

It might be closed doors but no shortage of good hefty challenges in the Fortuna game. The lack of sound from the crowd makes you realise how firmly players hit the ball when passing. Or at least compared to Scottish ones.

This is difficult to watch.

 

A sobering reminder of the importance of fans. This might work for finishing the league but a whole campaign like this would be unwatchable.

While I trust the player commitment, without fans to energise the players it just feels like a friendly.

A whole season like this isn't viable or even part of the plans for any league I don't think? It's just to get to the end of the season.

I thought they were doing behind closed doors to kick off next season too until fans can get back in grounds?

Dortmund have been good. Obviously  doesn't feel as exciting without fans but don't think it's affected the quality of the game too much. Though dortmund are a good watch at the worst of times anyway.

He is absolute garbage. Nowhere near the last two goals - I didn't see the 1st one.

 

Could do a job ? 😃

Just to say, I'd rather watch crowd-less Bundesliga games than Dundee v Motherwell any day.

All of those games and I end up watching the one with no goals so far. Fortuna have hit the woodwork 3 tines but can’t get the damn thing in the net. It’s all very familiar feeling.

Started shouting at the laptop as I lost sound for the last 15 minutes .

Wife - I thought you said there was no atmosphere cos no crowds ?

Me - **** off. 

Also , what were Dortmund doing at the end (still no audio, bitch !) applauding the ball boys ? 😄

It is nothing without fans. I watched the first half of the Borussia D v Schalke game and it was rubbish, really really rubbish. Worse than watching a training session.

Schalke are absolutely horseshite, they got ripped to feckin shreds and gave up after about an hour in. Only Sane at Centerhalf and McKimmie in Midfield got pass marks for Schalke. 

 

Dortmund were different gravy, Brandt and Guerreiro were outstanding, big laddie up front Haaland too.

If this works for finishing the leagues then fair enough 

but if this was to be the future of football for a couple of years then

the game is finished it’s a realisation how serious things are

Best crest. Used to follow Hertha a bit till my German pal who's a Werder Bremen fan said they had a very right-wing support. Quite like Bremen but they play in a Hibs top basically so don't like to talk about it.

Yeah, they can put the seats in for CL/National games, but otherwise its the barriers for standing. Works pretty well. Well, they at least kept me upright when I went in hammered 🤣🤣

Hertha ain't right wing that's for sure. Played very well today, great result.
