The Daily Bee (April 27th, 2021): The Bundesliga Merry-Go-Round

Good Morning Folks!

The Bundesliga’s top teams have agreed to shuffle the pack and dish out new managers to everyone (apart from Wolfsburg). Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig, and Eintracht Frankfurt will all have new managers next season, and incredibly, many of them will be managers that were previously in charge of another top Bundesliga club!

The problem, for me, is the fact that Bayern Munich have watched RB Leipzig get a little too close to them this season, finishing 2nd behind the Bavarians, to which they have taken their best player and their manager. It’s not a good look for a team that has done this a couple times before (and to which the same never seems to happen to them). I don’t know how to fix football, but if Bayern, who are about to win 10 league titles on the trot, are going to take the pick of the bunch from their closest competitors, what hope is there that this situation changes?

Well at least they paid for them this time. That’s something.

BVB Offer More Minutes to Kids than Anyone Else in Europe

This doesn’t really constitute news, but it’s interesting nonetheless. BVB are leading the pack for the playing time offered to players that are younger than 21. Borussia Dortmund gave 28.5% of available minutes to U21s, beating out Nice (24.3%) and AS Monaco (24.1%).

This is a big part of BVB’s strategy. We’re the best place for young talented players looking for senior minutes at a high level, and that often gives us the pick of the best talent in Europe.

The Daily Mail: Water is Wet (and Immigrants are to Blame)

Apparently the Daily Mail considers it newsworthy to announce that Erling Haaland will leave Borussia Dortmund if they miss out on the Champions League. Further, if that happens, two of the teams that will be giving Haaland a close look will be Chelsea and Manchester United.

Shocking stuff. I had no idea...
