This is a must win for #BVB. Rose with Malen and Brandt up front Reinier does indeed get a rare start. Sporting on paper with a 3-4-3 formation. #SCPBVB ImageImage
#BVB have won all three previous #UCL matchups against Sporting. All stats once again via @Transfermarkt.

Just a quick correction on the lineups. Schuls was a late replacement for Guerreiro. #BVB

🎙️ Mats Hummels about the red:

"I have seen footage from the red directly after I have been sent off. I have no idea how this can be a red. I have no idea how a referee on Champions League level decides to give a red for this."

#BVB
"I didn't believe it when he didn't change his decision. He has decided the game and I think he knows it. After the game he refused to talk due to the cameras, but I'll be talking to him in the dressing room. But we should be talking about the acting from Anthony."
"Anthony even told me, that it wasn't red. But the VAR has to change the decision, especially if he's a professional. And I reckon he is. (...) Anthony is a superb footballer, but he has to learn to be a real sportsmen."

"Borussia Dortmund is currently in pole position to sign Karim Adeyemi, regardless of a move for Erling Haaland."

(🌕) | 🗞 @berger_pj / @SPORT1

#BVB Image
🎙 Patrick Berger:

"Sebastian Kehl has taken up the matter and recently traveled especially to the Salzburg game against Wolfsburg. There he has met with player's agent Thomas Solomon. There was also talked about concrete figures."

#BVB Image
"[...] The Adeyemi side feels a certain appreciation from Dortmund and has with Bellingham and Co. good examples before eyes, where the journey can go with a BVB change."

EXCL. 🗞 @Blickch

🎙 Gregor Kobel:

"It's a different dimension, I'm now at a top 10 club in the world. But the biggest adjustment is of course the Champions League, the triple load, a game every three days, a lot more traveling - my body doesn't know that yet."

#BVB Image
"But this increased strain is a change I've always looked forward to. That's what football is for, I'm megahappy."

#BVB
The start of the season:

"It's okay. We could have won even more often and dropped a few points. But we're up there in the Bundesliga, we're doing well in the Champions League and we're in the DFB Cup. So it fits."

Wir schauen in diesem Thread genauer auf die Faschos, die am 9. Oktober Siegfried "SS-Siggi" Borchardt bei einem rechten Aufmarsch gedachten. Auffallend viele #Hooligans und rechte Fußballfans nahmen teil, schließlich war der Tote ebenfalls Hool. #do0910 #nonazisdo #Dortmund
Da wären Thomas Versin (links) und Sascha Rudloff (rechts). Versin kauft gern Drogen am Stadtgarten & verirrt sich auch mal in den Norden, vorallem Richtung Hafen. Rudloff kommt aus #Dortmund Eving und gehörte früher zur #NPD, heute zu Die Rechte. #nonazisdo

Rudloff war mit seinem Zögling Patrick Loewke beim Aufmarsch, der sich eine Weile in der Nachwuchsgruppe der Borussenfront versuchte. Sowohl die Junge als auch die Alte Garde sind heute im Stadion in der Bedeutungslosigkeit versunken. #nonazisdo #Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund 2020/21 accounts cover a season seriously impacted by COVID, when they finished third in the Bundesliga, won the DFB Cup and reached the Champions League quarter-finals. Head coach Lucien Favre was replaced by Marco Rose for 2021/22. Some thoughts follow #BVB
#BVB pre-tax loss widened from €47m to €73m, as revenue dropped €35m (9%) from €379m to €345m and profit on player sales fell €25m from €40m to €15m, partly offset by cutting operating expenses by €31m and net interest payable decreasing €2m.
#BVB €35m revenue fall was due to COVID driven reductions in match operations, down €32m (98%) to €1m, and commercial, down €21m (12%) to €147m. On the other hand, broadcasting rose €17m (10%) to €187m, mainly Champions League money, while other income was up €1m to €10m

Wir müssen über die Aktion von #Kobel gestern in der 5. Spielminute sprechen! Nicht nur der Reflex war stark, sondern auch die Art und Weise, wie er sich auf den Schuss vorbereitet hat.

Kurzer Thread.

#Keeperanalyse #BJKBVB #BVB #UCL
Anstatt nach der Brustvorlage hektisch die Distanz zu verkürzen, behält #Kobel die Nerven. Ein Vorrücken hätte nur seine Reaktionszeit verringert - ohne dabei wirklich Druck auf #Batshuayi auszuüben.

#BJKBVB #BVB #BorussiaDortmund
Mir gefällt zudem die Körpersprache und -spannung von #Kobel. Kein Zappeln oder Springen. Die Arme sind in einer neutralen Haltung, er wirkt fokussiert und absolut Herr der Lage. Das war die Basis für alles was folgte.

Given the importance of wage bills to the likely success of football clubs, I thought that it would be interesting to look at wages for the Big 5 European leagues in the 2019/20 season (the most recently published accounts). Some thoughts in the following thread.
As a technical note, I have converted wages from Euro denominated leagues to GBP using the 1.14 exchange rate from the Deloitte Money League. To facilitate comparison, I have provided figures for each league in both Euros and GBP, though the overviews are only in GBP.
In England the highest wage bill in 2019/20 was #MCFC £351m, followed by #LFC £326m, #MUFC £284m, #CFC £283m, #AFC £225m and #THFC £181m. It is worth noting that some clubs’ figures were inflated by changing their year-end date, which meant the accounts covered 13 months.

Man liest immer wieder, dass #Rose die Raute bevorzugt und #Malen sein Wunschspieler ist. Ich habe den Eindruck, dass Malen wieder so ein Transfer der Verantwortlichen ist, den der Trainer mittragen muss, und Rose mit der Raute spielt, weil wir keine Außenspieler haben. 1/5 #BVB
#Rose hat nach dem Transfer von Sancho gesagt, "Wenn du Jadon Sancho verlierst, dann müssen wir uns umschauen nach einem Flügelspieler mit Tempo, der Eins-gegen-Eins gehen kann. Das ist sicher eine Position, auf der wir noch etwas machen wollen." 2/5 #BVB
Nach dem Wechsel von Sancho hat #Rose gesagt, "Wir haben jetzt natürlich keinen Jadon Sancho mehr, diesen klassischen 1-gegen-1-Flügelstürmer, der nach innen zieht und abschließt. Wir werden mit Ansgar #Knauff daran arbeiten, dass er sich in diese Richtung entwickelt." 3/5 #BVB

BVB 2021/2021 - a Thread

Let’s see how #BVB is setting up under the new coach Marco #Rose. In the following thread I will discuss some options and reevaluate a thread I posted 6 month ago:
I argued that we should go after Malen, Faivre, Bensebaini/Firpo, Loic Bade and Hlozek. I think my thinking wasn't way off the reality, but I didn't expect the transfer market to be so slow. This is the thread if someone wants to look into it. 👇
I said that Sancho, Brandt, Dahoud, Witsel, Schulz, Piszczek, Schmelzer and all loanees will leave. So far this hasn't happened and it looks like Dahoud and Brandt will most likely stay at the club (with the former extending his contract soon).

Die Spatzen pfeifen es ja schon von den Dächern: Der #BVB soll zur neuen Saison angelich Gregor #Kobel verpflichten.

Worauf man sich freuen kann und ob er das oft von mir geforderte Upgrade zu Bürki ist, versuche ich in der #Keeperanalyse aufzuklären.

[Thread] Image
Zunächst einmal die Ausgangslage. Bürki hat in Dortmund schon längst nicht mehr den Rückhalt, der ihm aufgrund seiner Verdienste und Fähigkeiten eigentlich zustehen würde. Die jüngsten Leistungen waren schlicht nicht mehr gut genug. Mein Text zu ihm. #BVB

11freunde.de/artikel/fehlen…
Ob #Kobel in Summe die gewünschte Konstanz für den #BVB mitbringt, bleibt abzuwarten. TW-taktisch spielt er in dieser Saison auf einem sehr hohen Niveau. Im Spielaufbau öffnet er clever Passwinkel und verschafft sich somit mehr Zeit bei der Ballverarbeitung.

After news of the European Super League broke, the estimated earnings of clubs from the Big Five leagues in the 2020/21 Champions League might seem a little bit “after the Lord Mayor’s show”, but here’s an analysis up to the semi-finals in any case.
I should emphasise that these figures can only be considered as indicative. They are based on UEFA’s revenue distribution guidelines, but also include estimates for the TV pool and rebates to broadcasters following losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Based on my assumptions, the top 10 TV earnings from the Champions League up to the semi-finals are: #PSG €109m, #RealMadrid €109m, #MCFC €104m, #CFC €101m, #FCBayern €92m, #LFC €88m, #FCBarcelona €84m, #Juventus €82m, #BVB €78m and #Atleti €74m.

Deloitte have published the 24th edition of their annual Football Money League, which ranks the world’s leading football clubs by revenue, this time covering the 2019/20 season. Some thoughts in the following thread.
The 2019/20 season was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a £1.0 bln (12%) fall in revenue of the top 20 Money League clubs from £8.2 bln to £7.2 bln. Broadcast and match day fell £822m (23%) and £227m (17%) respectively, though commercial rose £87m (3%).
In terms of Euros, match day fell €257m (17%) from €1.5 bln to €1.2 bln, driven by matches either being cancelled or played behind closed doors without fans. Match day revenue is largely derived from gate receipts (including ticket and corporate hospitality sales).

BVB 2021/2021 - a Thread

Let’s see how #BVB could set up under the new coach Marco #Rose. In the following thread I will discuss some options. This is the outcome 👇
Sancho, Brandt, Dahoud, Witsel, Schulz, Piszczek, Schmelzer and all loanees will leave. I think the most surprising is Brandt. I just don’t see him as a player that fits Roses requirements. He is a wonderful player in a system that is set up for his needs, but not in this team.
Let us start at the back. GK: I decided to stick with Bürki. I don’t really see one of the options as a clear upgrade. Instead I would wait for Onana and try to get him for free 2023. But I have to admit, I am having a really hard time to judge goal keeping.

#FCBarcelona recent accounts revealed major debt challenges, but they also highlighted some issues around different definitions of debt, so this thread will take a look at these using 2019/20 accounts from selected clubs and explain why Barca might have more problems than others.
Note: the clubs covered in this review are just a few of those that have already published accounts for the 2019/20 season, so it is not a ranking table as such, but there is enough detail here to illustrate the points made.
At the narrowest extreme, we have just bank debt, but the broadest definition covers total liabilities, which includes all financial obligations, including transfer debt, staff payables, tax liabilities, trade creditors, provisions, accrued expenses and even deferred income.

The Unity, Borussia Dortmund’s most well-known ultra group, recently celebrated their 20th birthday.

Thread about who they are, what they stand for and why #BVB thanked them despite them being critical of their own club on numerous occasions.

(1/21) #nonazisdo
The Unity were established on January 16, 2001.

In the beginning, they were just a group of young fans who organized in one of the Südtribüne’s upper blocks.

Here’s one of their first choreos from 2001, back then still in block 82 on the upper part of the Südtribüne. (2/21)
When it comes to their visual style, The Unity have clearly gone a long way over the past 20 years.

Here’s one of their most recent choreos, in which they celebrate the city of Dortmund.

“Big city, my dream!” (3/21)

FC Bayern München: Butterbrezel mit Salz
Kennt wirklich jeder. Ist immer wichtigtuerisch direkt neben der Kasse platziert. Deutlich zu teuer und für Möchtegern-Genießer. Wenn man Zähne zeigt, wird von oben direkt salzig reagiert.

Borussia Dortmund: Bockwurst im Laugenmantel
Vereint echte Bodenständigkeit mit weltmännischem Flair. Will ganz vorne mitspielen, ist im Endeffekt aber dann doch nur eine Bockwurst, um die der Tankwart eine angetaute Laugenbrezel gewickelt hat.

Jubos, one of Borussia Dortmund’s main ultra groups, have reportedly dissolved.

This is worrying for two very, very different reasons.

Thread on fan culture in #COVID19 times, commercialization and the fight against the far right in the city of Dortmund.

1/21 #BVB #nonazisdo
Jubos (Junge Borussen, or “Young Borussia Fans”) were established in 2005.

Along with The Unity and Desperados, they were one of Borussia Dortmund’s three main ultra groups.

Jubos’ main focus was the fight against football’s commercialization. 2/21
In November 2019, they boycotted a Borussia Dortmund away game in Barcelona due to away tickets costing the maximum 70 euros price.

Jubos were also active against commercialization in Germany, most recently against the likes of Rasenballsport Leipzig and Hoffenheim. 3/21

Although it’s early days in the reporting period for football club accounts from the extended 2019/20 season, we can already see the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in a few selected announcements from some European clubs, which this thread will examine.
We have published accounts for #Juventus, #BVB, #TeamOL, #SSLazio and #Benfica, while #FCBarcelona have given an investor presentation and press releases have been issued by #RealMadrid, #Milan and #ASRoma (so we don’t have all figures from these 3 clubs).
Although a large part of the 2019/20 season was completed before the lockdown, there has been a major adverse impact on these clubs’ accounts with massive losses being announced at #ASRoma €204m, #Milan €195m, #FCBarcelona €97m, #Juventus €90m, #BVB €44m and #TeamOL €37m.

This thread will look at debt at football clubs, focusing on the Premier League Big Six. The fundamental question is whether this debt is too high, but the answer is complicated by the numerous definitions of debt, all of which can be valid #AFC #CFC #LFC #MCFC #MUFC #THFC
At the narrowest extreme, we have just bank debt, but the broadest extreme covers total liabilities, which includes all financial obligations, including transfer debt, tax liabilities, trade creditors, provisions for future losses, accrued expenses and even deferred income.
The net debt reported in an English club’s financial statement is in line with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and essentially covers purely financial obligations, such as overdrafts, bank loans, bonds, shareholder loans and finance leases less cash.

Borussia Dortmund 2019/20 accounts cover a season when they once again finished second behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and reached the Champions League last 16. However, COVID-19 meant it was “an unprecedented, difficult and challenging year.” Some thoughts follow #BVB
#BVB went from €22m profit before tax to €47m loss (€44m after tax), mainly due to profit on player sales falling €43m to €40m. Despite the COVID restrictions, revenue was basically flat at €379m, but operating expenses rose €25m and net interest payable was €2m higher.
The only #BVB revenue item to decrease was match operations, down €12m (27%) to €33m, but the pandemic restricted growth in broadcasting, up €3m (1%) to €170m, commercial, up €10m (6%) to €168m, and other operating income, up €1m to €9m.

Match-going fans are currently excluded from football due to #COVID19. Executives, however, are still at it.

Long thread about two alarming developments involving fans and the network of support offered to them which could significantly affect Germany's fan culture. (1/22)
Meet the Fanprojekt (FP), a form of social work developed around young football fans in Germany over the past 30 years.

The FP’s staff are completely independent and are not committed to a club, associations or police.

At the center of their work: Being there for fans. 2/22
No matter the issues fans face, from problems with police to social issues at home, they know they can rely on the FP to provide help.

One of the most important elements in the FP’s work: Helping fans to organize, find their voice. 3/22

Deloitte’s annual Football Money League has become essential reading, but it only ranks the world’s leading football clubs by revenue. The following thread adds details for expenses, profits and balance sheet for an “enhanced” version of the money league.
First, we will include some handy one-pagers that include the details for the Top 20 Money League clubs, both in Sterling and Euros. Then, we will drill into each of these in turn to highlight how each club has performed in various categories (only in Sterling).
The revenue overview includes details for each revenue stream (match day, broadcasting and commercial) with broadcasting further split between domestic and UEFA competitions. Other revenue is mainly player loans that are not always included in the Deloitte definition of revenue.
