Good morning, Fear the Wall!
Matondo in a Bind-o
Always remember: not all Schalke players are bad. There was a bit of a controversy earlier today, when an image of Schalke forward Rabbi Matondo emerged in which the Welsh national appears to be wearing a Jadon Sancho Borussia Dortmund kit while working out!
According to a public apology he posted on his twitter account, Matondo wore the kit because he and Sancho are really close friends, not just because it’s a Dortmund kit. I think it’s fair to say that this is just the message the powers at be at Schalke wanted him to send out. Matondo knows which club rules the Ruhr region, and he wants to be on the right side of history. We applaud you, Rabbi!

Schmelzer hasn’t had much to do for Borussia Dortmund ever since he lost the starting left back position to Raphael Guerreiro. He started getting a few more minutes per match once the Bundesliga allowed managers to make 5 subs. It now looks like any possibility Schmelzer had for a recovery has suffered a setback.

You guys never even answer these, so just argue about whether BVB has a “winning mentality” like you always do.
