BVBLA – April 2024

Bayern = win. Stuttgart = lose. Atletico = win. It was the best of months and the worst of months, but mostly good so far. Now we have a chance to ruin Leverkusen’s Perfect Season*. Come out and watch.

Sunday, April 21, 8:30am, at a new venue in Santa Monica: TR!P on Lincoln Blvd. RSVP at Facebook now. Let’s have a big showing!

Bundesliga – Update: April 18

We are so close to all of our (very diminished) goals this season. We still have the chance to move into the 4th place CL spot, but we need to win enough to keep even with the Cans (i.e. beat Leverkusen), and win a six point game next week.

We (Germany) are right on the edge (+90%) of grabbing the 5th place Champions League spot. When that happens, we will back into the CL via that spot whether or not we overtake the Cans for 4th.

April 1: Absolutely daunting schedule coming up: Bayern, Stuttgart, Atletico, Leverkusen; with small breathers against Mönchengladbach and Augsburg. Some are saying Terzic is out if no CL spot, others are saying he’s out no matter what.

I believe that Dortmund will play to the level of their competition. They’ve done this in Champion’s League all season. I’m not thinking we will win all of these matches, but I do believe that we will beat Atletico over two legs, and that we will win enough in the Bundesliga to stay rooted in the top four.

Champions League

April 18: We did it! We are through to the Semis! We will take on PSG on May 1 at home, and May 7 in Paris. I swear that I’m starting to believe. We can do this!

April 1: Atletico Madrid is one of the best draws we could have hoped for, but even with that, all odds are against us. Dortmund is already being written off in CL, and that’s usually when they shine. Having the second leg at home is helpful. We’ll know where we stand.

Christmas Party in Dortmund

We’ve gotten this note from Dortmund:

“we are pleased to be able to invite all Fanclubs to the traditional Christmas Party this year.”

on: Monday, 3 December 2018
from: 18:00 CET (admittance from 16:00 CET)
in: the stadium

I must point out that this is for two Club Members and you have to fly yourself to Dortmund, but…if anyone was planning on being in the area on Monday, Dec 3, let me know ASAP.

For those of you stuck in LA around that time, let me know if we should schedule a Christmas Party here. Sounds like fun.

Thanks all! Hope to see you soon.
