Good Morning, Fear the Wall.

Today’s my Birthday, so I demand you shower me with praise and attention! DO IT NOW, FOOLS! If I were born one day earlier, I would share a birthday with Harry Kane. Instead, I got Mussolini’s birthday. Lucky me.

Lukasz Piszczek to go One More Year

Piszczek recently did an interview with BVB’s public affairs department, which you can read here. While he spends most of the interview talking about his history with the club over the last 10 years, towards the end he mentioned some of his plans for the future. He’s apparently spoken with his wife about his desire to move back to Poland, his homeland, after next season. In tandem with BVB, Piszczek has created a football academy in his hometown of Goczalkowice-Zdroj, which local children can attend.

While BVB fans would love to have Piszczek around as long as he wants to stay here, it’s understandable that he may want to move on. He’s at the point in his life when he needs to begin considering what he’s going to do after his career is over, and it’s good to see that he already has an idea of what he’d like to do post-BVB.

Borussia Dortmund’s Summer Schedule

Borussia Dortmund will be returning to their annual summer training home in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland. BVB will have a few training matches against various low-level opponents from Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands. They’ll also have a friendly against MSV Duisburg in what will be a preview of the first round of the DFB Cup. Finally, of course, there’s the SuperCup against Bayern Munich at the end of September.
