It's not that I disagree but consider what's just happened at at Dortmund.
They were factually at the very least a top-five side in the world (I'm talking football exclusively here, no administrative/financial stuff). One of the greatest football minds and tacticians of our time at the helm, sick, young players and a chemistry in the team and a willingness to give it their all in the big games, like, to be honest, was only shown by Bayern this year.
I just had to cringe every time Klopp went way over the top making themselves smaller than they were. It was embarrassing, and I do think that stuff like that does have an influence on the players, the team as a whole. Some players just want to be Goliath once in a while, instead of David all the time. But they couldn't even be Goliath against mid-table Bundesliga teams, because those, too, according to Klopp's interviews, were all but favourites over Dortmund week in week out. In many of these games you could already see the motivation of the players drop significantly. Defeated by Hamburg twice, by their arch rivals twice, drew Düsseldorf at home, etc.
Top it all off with an embarrassing, belittling #fairytale before the final, and after the final a sticker that looks like this:Spoiler: show
(for the non-Germans. "Siegerlage" is a meshed word out of the German words "Sieg" (victory) and "Niederlage" (defeat). "Victefeat", if you will)
And you are in full blown "Meister der Herzen" territory.
I, as a fan of Borussia Dortmund, would puke.
And I, as a proponent of at least one strong rival in the Bundesliga (to make us stronger) am disgusted by such an attitude.
That they will not be on par with us financially within the year was obvious. No need to spell that out. But the last two years in the Bundesliga were no fluke (football wise at the very least, but business wise neither), yet all this club ever does is devaluing what they have achieved by making it look like it, indeed, was just a fluke, divine intervention, or alas: A fairytale.
I can't respect an attitude like that.
Your posts are not worth commenting yet I made this bigass post just for you. Take it as a compliment.

If you really want to be the Robin Hood of the Bundesliga, how about you start doing your duty first and you send the Sheriff of Hoppingham packing and back to where they belong? But you weren't even capable of doing that. You lost to them at home, and now this plastic club spends another year in the Bundesliga. Thanks for nothing, Robby!
