Yeah, I guess our pressing game would make them suffer more than Barcelona.

Just watched the replay of BvB vs Napoli and Aubameyang is class! Maybe my african roots are making me biased but the guy is killer!

I believe that our strongest team has enough quality to reach the final again. We just need to get to 1/8 first.

And also, if we qualify, we will probably finish second. That means we will get one of these teams as our rivals: United, PSG, Real, Chelsea, Atletico, Barca

I would like us to face Barca. :P


From the teams listed I don't see anyone that you will have huge problems with. Maybe Atletico because they are a very physical side. Not too sure about Barcelona, Ajax pressed them quite well in the first half tonight and forced them to make errors. Not to mention their defence isn't quite up to scratch so that counter-attacking style of yours will rip them to shreds. United and Chelsea I really don't need to explain do I? :D PSG are playing well thus far but haven't really faced any big time.

Hey Borusse, what about Gündogan? Is he ever going to be fit again? :twisted:

And btw guys, don't forget that Barça is dealing with a lot of injury problems (Valdes, Messi, Jordi Alba, Mascherano, Adriano...). They are much better than this. The same with Dortmund. I miss their fast passing game so much. They need their fullbacks + Gündogan fit to play that fantastic football once again.

From what I've read he should be fit in 2-3 weeks so he'll there after the winter break.
So will Hummels in Jan.

Borusse : Finish 2nd, meet ManU, ransack them, Kagawa comes back.

I hope we can bring Kagawa back already in the winter but if that doesnt happen then I want United in 1/8 and a big Kagawa comeback. :D Dortmund fans love him.

Kaaaagawa Shinji! Lalala, lalala lala! Kaaaagawa Shinji! :D

And Im really optimistic about this CL season right now. We have the worst match behind us I think and we should now qualify to 1/8.

After doing that we can look forward to the comebacks of our key players. With Sahin it sometimes looks like we're playing with 10 men. He is not even half as good as Gundogan. With Ilkay back (I hope he will find his form), in-form Hummels, in-form Piszczek, in-form Schmelzer and Sokratis playing like he's been playing... This is a scary team. I think with all of those players healthy we do have a second best team in Europe. Maybe Im over the top with this one but I believe we are strong enough to make it to another final.

The league is already lost but we still need to gather points and stay in TOP3 at least. Second place should be our main target though.

With this win against Napoli my hopes for a great season are once again up. :P

I would like to see how Dortmund would fare against a team like Man City. And I agree that Dortmund fit and in form is the second best team in Europe.

Another German final anyone? :D

#-o Do you really love him?

You guys brought him to the elite football and he left like if you were some kind of average team. It's not the same case than Götze but I can't see why do fans love him.

And Kagawa left to get 4 times what BvB is paying him to sit on the United's bench. #-o

Ha, thats because you dont know the story behind his transfer.

He wanted to stay in Dortmund but the person who forced the move on him was... his father. In Japanese culture its apparently normal that the father figure is so important that sons are taught to always listen to them and obey their will, you know what I mean. :P

Anyway, Manchester United and Premierleague in general is so hyped-up in Asia that it was HIS FATHER's dream for Shinji to play in Manchester. Before Shinji left he actually cried in Klopp's arms because he didnt want to go.

:wink:

I heard this story before. Quite sad.

It must be like a national holiday now when Kagawa plays for United (once a year).

Ahhh I haven't heard that before now it makes sense. But yes in Japan and a lot of Asian countries, what the parents (especially the father) wants is usually followed even if the son/daughter is of age.

Yes, EPL is more popular in Asia especially United which I don't understand since there are more Japanese and Korean players playing in Bundesliga. :| As you can see last summer, a lot of the PL teams had done Asian tours.

From the United side, they needed another "Asian star" since Park Ji-Sung left, and Kagawa is like some sort of celebrity in Japan it seems. No kidding, everytime I visit Asia, I feel like I'm being looked upon as some sort of alien because I support a German team (well I guess you can count US and Australia too) but EPL + the Spanish duo are really big in Asia, which is probably why Kagawa senior thinks Man U is better for his son :(

I'm hoping for Dortmund to meet an EPL team (which at this point, Chelsea and United are likely). But meeting United will be a much better narrative for Dortmund - you guys need to prove why Leverkusen is not a good representative of the league (I wouldn't have mind if they are like Schalke, average both domestically and in Europe, but Leverkusen is slicing left and right domestically :evil:) and obviously they need to prove a thing or two to Kagawa senior :wink:

If anyone is going to trash Chelsea/United I'd rather it be us! It's going to be tough for them if they finish second though - Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, PSG all possible opponents. Of course they can beat them no problem, but it won't come easy.

Well, I'd rather we meet Arsenal. 2-0 comments on many forums just gets on my nerves.
That is why I am secretly hoping Dortmund win against Marseille and Napoli win 2-1 against Arsenal.
And they draw us and we'd be the death of them.
