While a few weeks ago I agreed with YlonenXabi that their position is not as bad as it seems, the alarm bells should be ringing now, seeing as they only managed 1 point from those three remaining games.

It's always the minnows and the supposedly weaker teams against whom they put in those abysmal performances. They are a lot better against Bayern and Wolfsburg and Gladbach and in the Champions League. I realize it's easier for them because those teams don't sit deep and BVB doesn't have to play-make . But against weaker teams they often play as if they just don't care. Rivals or not, I used to enjoy watching Dortmund play, but at this point they're just unwatchable. There's nothing left of what made this team's game attractive. It's almost like it's them who still have the world cup hangover, although except for Hummels their Brazil travelers mostly sat on the bench (if even that). Feeling like world champions and doing quite well in the CL seems to keep them from realizing how bad their domestic situation really is.

They seem to have become sproud of that tag (in my perception) after their initial successes, which when you think about it, is a bit weird. Who wants to be thought of as the underdog (except in warm, fuzzy movies) rather than being the top dog?
For their own sake, they need to shed that underdog image and start competing seriously again. You don't get foreign fans and good players by proclaiming that your ambition is second place. You get them by saying you want to be in first place, even if that is unrealistic at the time.

Auba and Reus are the few positive things for BVB so far. A typical Klopp buy, someone under the radar but shown flashes of brilliance.
He was one of the standouts when we played against them.
