I remember Augsburg's tie against Liverpool and remain hopeful.

Even though I would've wanted Germany to have four teams in the group stage, having three will only give Bayern more money. The Market pool will be divided by three teams and not four (I'm predicting Liverpool to advance). We all like more money for Bayern, right?

That's just extremely short-sighted thinking. Increasing the attractiveness of the league is prerequisite for better TV deals. That's not gonna happen if people keep perceiving it as a one horse league. It's called enlightened self-interest.

Hoffenheim are a good team, hope they'll advance.

Poor Nagelsmann, will go down so early.. :|
I'm fully supporting Hoffenheim, but every time I've checked an outside Bundesliga game from them it was not so good..
May Bayern rule the world again!

Disagree. As a bayern fan, I want to keep this league for my bayern only.

So if you want competition then watch south american leagues.

In europe, People will only pay attention to the teams that do well in champions league, if you want more rating in Bundesliga then ask for german teams to have more protagonism in europe rather than in bundesliga.

Well it will be interesting to see a post-Süle and Rudy Hoffenheim. If they can make up for their loss and play similar to last year, I don't exclude them advancing.

Thank you very much for the lecture, but I'm German and I live in Germany, so I'll continue watching the German league.

Exactly the kind of attitude that makes 220m transfers happen... The kind of transfers that make many fans question their soccer affinity...

Suppose this is a good time for your friendly reminder that the sport was called "soccer" before it was called "football"....no need to be snobby.

Well, I am aware of differeces in language, dialect and accent (as well as phonetical and lexical differences) in different English-speaking countries - nothing ridiculous about that...

Plus I've always been a little more on the AE side...

Football as a word was used in fourteenth century, way before any kind of 'association' (based on which the term soccer was coined).

The only real reason why 'soccer' still exist as a term is because some people believe that you can name a sport foot-ball regardless of the fact that it uses neither feet nor actual ball.
