BVBLA – November 2023

Bundesliga – Update: We’ve fallen off the pace with our recent loss. It will be Bayern vs. Leverkusen for the top spot for a while. We will play Stuttgart, Leverkusen and Leipzig within the next month. We’ll know where we stand after that.


Champions League – After a win in Newcastle, we are well set to get through this group. A good showing vs Newcastle at home and Milan away should lock us in for at least the 2nd spot.

Pokal – We cannot catch a break. With only 6 Bundesliga 1 teams left out of 16, we draw Stuttgart. This is a mirror of our Hoffenheim situation, so here’s hoping it turns out the same.

BVBLA – October 2023

Bundesliga – Update: Different numbers, but the same positions. Bayern and Dortmund off to a so-so (by their standards) start, while everyone wonders if Leverkusen and Stuttgart can keep it up. Bayern Match and Newcastle away are included below. Plan now to be at LA Draught on Saturday, 4 November, at 10:30am.


Champions League – It will be all about Newcastle, and hopefully we can peak at the right time. Winning the home leg seems like a must at this point.

Pokal – It will be Hoffenheim at home on Halloween. At least something we know we can handle, and things have shifted for Hoffenheim since our last meeting.

BVBLA – September 2023

Update – Champion’s League

OK, kind of a tough group. Not because the other teams are particularly good, but because all of the teams are so tightly grouped in quality.

Amazing to see how low PSG has fallen, and, of course, they always suck in UCL. Newcastle are up there based on last seasons results, but they are probably not that good. AC Milan is probably fairly ranked, but Dortmund…well…we all seen their recent form. So here’s September:

01.09 Fri Dortmund vs FC Heidenheim – 11:30am, ESPN+ 2-2

16.09 Sat Freiburg vs Dortmund – 6:30am, ESPN+

19.09 Tue Paris SG vs Dortmund – 12:00pm, Paramount +

23.09 Sat – Dortmund vs VfL Wolfsburg – 6:30am, ESPN+

29.09 Fri Hoffenheim vs Dortmund – 11:30am, ESPN+

BVBLA August 2023

The start of the season almost seems anticlimactic after San Diego and Las Vegas. Some of us were hosting Dortmund in Southern California for the second time, but many more had their first experience of Dortmund in the USA.

But On To Bundesliga

19.08 Sat Dortmund vs FC Köln – 9:30am, ESPN+ and LA Draught in Santa Monica.

Topspiel first week at home is the perfect situation. First team is healthy, except…Adeyemi is doubtful. Köln is (believe it or not) having more injury problems than us, including obvious starters like Ljubicic and Hübers. This should be good.

26.08 Sat VfL Bochum vs Dortmund – 6:30am, ESPN+

This is as close as we get to a Derby nowadays, so I guess we make the most of it.

31.08 2023/24- 9am – Champions League group stage draw – Details Here

You’ll all want to see who we get. There are some weaklings in Pot 1 that could really help us out.
