Yeah, watching tomorrow's match will be wasted time unfortunately.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Just a bit too much to comprehend right now... I remember watching the 1997 final when I was 13. Since then, the club has been a brink away from being bankrupt and gone forever, coming back from that to make the final again, just insane.

You are younger than I guessed (your fault with all your stuff about German tennis fans being old ).

Congratulations, I hope you win .

It annoys me that you have assembled a great team, and now everyone wants to disassemble it . I think it would be a shame to see the team getting broken up before it reaches it's full potential. It's quite sad as all the vultures now circle round.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

I don't think many players will leave. Götze, as great as a player he is, he wasn't one of those players were you felt that he was really connected to the club in the same vein as Kehl, Weidenfeller, Schmelzer, Sahin or Hummels.

It looks like both Götze and Lewandowski will leave but that does not scare me too much, we have managed to replace Sahin and Kagawa, got stronger both times even. The only two losses that would really devastate me would be Gündogan & Hummels as I feel these two are key players for the whole squad. Ilkay is due to sign a contract extension apparently and Mats made some very encouraging comments following Götze's transfer, it doesn't sound like he plans on leaving anytime soon.

The rest will come, there's a lot of money to spend now and it will be spend by smart people who don't just buy big names

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

Ha the papers here link another Dortmund player with a club every day. Obviously you are the flavour of the month for our journalists who think it will be like a free sale in the summer.

I very much admire your model and prudence. I very much think it is where our league here goes wrong, our clubs have lots of money, but too much money gets wasted on average players on ridiculous wages (eg. Andy Carroll 35m ). There is a distinct lack of good value talent coming into the Premier League.

I think most people here admire your brand of football and team spirit. Some of our pundits on Sky Sports described the atmosphere in your stadium as the best they had ever witnessed during the CL semi-final. You sort of have model that pundits talk about in a dream world, but rarely actually happens.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

The strongest thing for me about Dortmund is they way they've been able to maintain a strong fan culture, supporter ownership, low ticket prices, and still be successful at an elite level. Here in england we're sold the concept that insane ticket prices, focus on corporate revenue over genuine fans, and money bags owners is the price we pay for having the so-called best league in the world. When in fact the quality of our league is falling.

Dortmund's style of football isn't that amazing, although he has put together a very efficient team and in a one-off match they'll have a chance against Bayern.

In 1997 Dortmund had more money available than Bayern. But then were too eager to compete with the big teams. Overpaid their players which led to financial problems.
I admit Dortmund have a better atmosphere in the stadium than Bayern. Teams from NRW have a reputation to have a better atmosphere than in Bavaria or other parts of Germany. Even Alemannia Aachen have one of the best atmospheres in Germany (provided they have a good run in the DFB-Pokal).
This about Götze, 9 out of 10 times a highly talented kid from Memmingen (where he's from) to Passau goes to Bayern. Götze one of the few players Bayern missed out on. Same goes for Cologne and Hummels.

I'll only start watching if Barca lead 2-0 within the first 30 min
