The German Bundesliga Football Thread
« on: March 22, 2007, 05:53:41 AM »
I think this league is Very Underrated

I find this league more entertaining than Serie A (I'm using Serie A as an example because too many people say this is the best league (I think the Premiership is)) , don't get me wrong the Serie A has good football but It just seems to be the smaller teams in the Bundesliga put up more of a fight against bigger teams which I think makes it a more challenging league plus I feel the atmosphere in the stadiums are much better. Alot of players in the German league are talented and I feel they would contribute alot to the bigger teams in Champions League.

If I was a footballer I would prefer to go to Bundesliga rather than Serie A maybe I would prefer to go to Bundesliga over La Liga as well!. The Bundesliga seems more challenging (especially this year with Bayern not dominating)

Anyway Is the Bundesliga Underrated Do you agree or do you think I am talking out of the depths of my kakahole ??

(Even if you think I am my opinion wont change though I believe there is much more of a argument between Spanish League and Bundesliga)

As a fan I find the Bundesliga the most entertaining league.
Some may argue about tactics and skill levels. But the games are generally open and free flowing. 

Best league? That is subjective judgment I think.  The best league is the one you enjoy looking at the most.

Bundesliga is entertaining, I liked Werder Bremen, when they had Micoud, Frings, Ailton and Klose in attack.

Bundesliga gets a lot of Brazilians and basically all the good Eastern European players.

Serie A was king in the 90's.  They real gone down now, some players even choosing Serie B over Serie A.:devil:

Haha Serie B over Serie A....that would be a scene.

I find both the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 underrated, teams like Werder Bremen, Bayern, Stuttgart, real stick out. And i love bremen's attacking style, dey does throw everyting forward.

Ligue 1 on the other hand, teams like Lyon, lens, lille, marseille, real mash up too. Long time now LYon been mashing up in the champions. I cyah wait for the day they win it.

Jah bless

Unfortunately the Bundesliga has been on the decline for the last few years, it just doesn't generate the TV money and other forms of revenue the the EPL, Serie A and La Liga does.  Few German clubs have had much money to spend on players and several have lost their big name stars to other leagues, the one exception has been Bayern Munich, no. 7 on the richest clubs list.  Not surprisingly the Bundesliga has increasingly become a one horse race with Bayern winning 7 of the last 10 Championships with no other club winning it more than once in the same period.

This season Bayern Munich seem to be having an off season as they are currently 4th and 9 points off first place (currently held by Schalke the only other German club in the top 20 richest clubs) but Bayern has come back from a greater deficit to win the league before.

The top 20 list of richest clubs (based on income) is as follows:

1(2) Real Madrid 186.2m
2(1) Man Utd 166.4m
3(3) AC Milan 158m
4(5) Juventus 154.9m
5(4) Chelsea 149.1m
6(7) Barcelona 140.4m
7(9) Bayern Munich 128m
8(10) Liverpool 122.4m
9(8) Inter Milan 119.7m
10(6) Arsenal 115.7m
11(12) Roma 89m
12(11) Newcastle 87.1m
13(14) Spurs 70.6m
14(17) Schalke 65.8m
15(-) Lyon 62.7m
16(13) Celtic 62.6m
17(16) Man City 60.9m
18(-) Everton 60m
19(-) Valencia 57.2m
20(15) Lazio 56.1m


8 teams are from England
5 teams from Italy
3 from Spain
2 from Germany
1 each from Scotland and France

The Bundesliga is not my fave, but it does generate the biggest crowds per game in Europe...surprisingly bigger than the EPL, Spain and Italy. Also, Dortmund and not Bayern, draws the biggest home attendances per game. I could watch Bremen play anyone, but otherwise, I'm not that interested. In the end, the Bundesliga does not quite have the same global appeal as the 'Top 3' and therefore does not generate the kind of revenue from marketing and TV rights and therefore does not attract as many of the biggest foreign stars as the EPL or La Liga (Serie once monopolized the best foreigners but that is far frm the case now)....When it was announced that germany was going to host the WC, the crowd support began to grow. Also, germany's great showing at the Wc and the fact that some of their WC stars are still in the Bundesliga has propeled its popularity in a big way amongst locals.

BERLIN (AP) - Miroslav Klose scored two goals and set up the third for a rebuilt Bayern Munich to start its Bundesliga season Saturday with a convincing 3-0 win against Hansa Rostock.

Bayern, the title favorite, started at a furious pace in steady rain and was rewarded in the 14th minute when Luca Toni scored from close range after a pass from Klose.
Klose scored in the 66th after a mistake by Rostock goalkeeper Stefan Waechter, and he also got the third goal with a powerful header in the 85th after outjumping three Rostock defenders. It was his 99th goal in Germany's top division.

Bayern lined up five new players after a Bundesliga record spending spree of 70 million (US$96.7 million) on new players.

"I'm relieved at the win, the expectations are huge," Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said of his team. "We weren't really challenged. That will happen next week against (Werder) Bremen. There will be some hate in that game."

Bremen lost a bitter fight to keep Klose, the World Cup's top scorer. The Germany forward was one of Bayern's most expensive new players behind Toni and France's World Cup star Franck Ribery.

Newly promoted Rostock has a season budget equal to the 25 million (US$34 million) transfer fee spent on Toni and the lack of money led the club to scout Germany's third division to sign low-cost players.

"Toni really stirs things up in the area. That gives Klose more room to show his skills," Hitzfeld said.

Bremen, another title hopeful, gave up two goals in less than two minutes against VfL Bochum to settle for a 2-2 draw in a fast crowd-pleasing match.

Bremen scored after Diego converted a penalty kick in the 39th and newcomer Boubacar Sanogo, chosen to try and fill the void left by Klose, also scored in the 45th. Bochum leveled with goals by Stanislav Sestak in the 47th and Tommy Bechmann two minutes later.

Bremen has nine injured players heading into Wednesday's Champions League qualification match against Dynamo Zagreb and Saturday at home against Bayern.

"We will have to see who we will have on the field," Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf said. "Against Bayern, we have to win at home. They have a very good team."

Arminia Bielefeld spoiled former Bayern coach Felix Magath's debut for VfL Wolfsburg with a 3-1 win.

Magath demanded a free hand to rebuild the club and reshuffled the roster with a lot of young German talent, but the club looked confused on the pitch.

"Bielefeld was more confident from the start and we were nervous and never got over it," Magath said. "I think it's because there has been so much upheaval in the team, with so many new players and the preparation time is so short."

Artur Wichniarek scored in the 38th for Bielefeld, Christian Eigler in the 51st and Oliver Kirch in the 80th. Wolfsburg's Sergiu Radus scored a consolation goal four minutes later.

In other games, it was: Leverkusen 0, Cottbus 0; Hannover 96 0, Hamburg 1; and Frankfurt 1, Hertha Berlin 0.

On Friday, defending champion Stuttgart drew 2-2 against Schalke.

I don't generally watch German League, but out of necessity I have watched 3 games and all three was real exciting. So much attacking football, the whole game seem to be end to end.
Today Leverkusen vs Schalke was the same, with Leverkusen keeper putting on a fine show.

That is how it normally goes. I trying to tell men long time that the Bundesliga is the most entertaining ball on tv. Notice I eh say best league, but the most entertaining.

They play a game that is more open and the difference in quality for teh teams isn't as great as say the EPL, so every game is a contest, even the blowouts.

Hamburg v Bayern on GolTv now.  (yes, I'm "working from home")

This is a good game to restart action after the winter break.

Bayern started slowly, Hamburg looking good. Jol must be so glad Hotspur let him go.

Toni has a goal called back on a bogus call. Even though Ray bawling down the place, and it was clearly a bad call, the whistle blew before Toni took the shot.

 Statistically the Bundesliga is the most attacking league in Europe in the last 4-5 years.  Overall the play is very open and exciting

I know people on the forum don't really watch the German league, but Bayern and Dortmund going at it. Pretty much end to end stuff. The top of the table tight as well so five even six teams have a chance.
