Column follow-up: showdown with the BVB – Bundesliga messed up season

For me Borussia Dortmund is the biggest flop of the season after the relegated team, whose names have not yet been decided! A big disappointment!

The fact that BVB is once again second is due more to the weakness of the Bundesliga. And less with their own strength.

Despite their own slump, FC Bayern have never been prevented from winning their 10th consecutive league title. If Bayern falters, we want to be there: this sentence is now more a joke than a reality.

In the DFB Cup, the embarrassing end came in the round of 16 against the second division team of St. Pauli.

In the Champions League there were two first victories in a very easy group (with Ajax, Sporting Lisbon and Besiktas Istanbul), but then the shameful early elimination followed.

In the Europa League they then failed the Glasgow Rangers with a total of six goals in two games.

The 3: 4 home defeat to Bochum on Saturday was a reflection of the whole season. Erling Haaland scored three goals, they were lucky enough to have two penalties, they were leading by 3-2 with ten minutes left – and then Bochum turned the game around after all. With all due respect to the climber: nonsense!

Two forward-looking scenarios have become reality in Dortmund:

At no time during the season has Marco Rose been able to prove that he is the right coach for BVB. He has failed even more clearly than his predecessors in the task of finally chasing away the sloppiness of the team. 50 goals conceded are exactly as many as the penultimate Bielefeld has on the account.

The exit clause (which is extremely questionable for the coaches) in millions with which Dortmund took Rose from Gladbach resulted in only defeats: Gladbach, Dortmund and the coach himself.

E: Haaland scored goals on the assembly line, but it was both a curse and a blessing for the club. When does he withdraw his release clause? Where is he going Has your father been spotted in Spain or England? These questions were often more important than the next game and created a feverish excitement in which no success can thrive.

BVB should realize that release clauses and players wanting to stay just two years are not the way to go. We need more continuity, otherwise there won’t even be the title next year. It doesn’t matter how many weaknesses Bayern concede themselves.
