  1. Thanks samboing, but I don't even have sympathy for myself. We had an 11 point lead, and we blew it.
  2. We knew that three wins in May would win the title, anything less and we needed help. We needed help as a slow start against Mainz left us chasing the game, and we only partially recovered Schalke didn't stutter, and nicked the title on goal difference
  3. We lost to Bayern, but responded with three wins to round off April which means we're two points clear of Schalke, who've forgotten how to lose, at the top of the table, with just three games left
  4. March was poor, as we crashed out of the Champions League, and lost again in the Bundesliga although our lead actually increased, and is now 5 points. We cannot keep getting lucky, and it's Bayern away next after the international break
  5. We suffered another setback in February, which, like the last one in January, coincided with my first choice goalkeeper being unavailable through injury. He missed four games in January, but hopefully it's just the one this time and our lead has been cut to just four points. There is no more margin for error if we are to win the title
  6. We made one signing in January, a replacement for the departed Felipe, and saw one other youngster leave on loan Armini looks a decent player
  7. On paper, with back-to-back defeats, January looks poor but the Bremen defeat felt like robbery and I thought we deserved something against Monchengladbach too but we still lead the league by 7 points, so as long as we don't have an extended run of bad results, we should be fine
  8. We had a perfect December and go into the mid-season break 11 points clear and through as runners-up in our Champions League group
  9. Another slight wobble in November but we remain unbeaten in the league, 9 points clear and we know that if we beat Astana at home, we're through the Champions League group stage too
  10. We had a bit of a wobble in October, losing twice but the fact that the defeats were in the German Cup and Champions League means our 100pc start continues, and we lead the table by 8 points although, with a trip to the Nou Camp next up in the Champions League, it already looks likely that if we go through, it won't be as group winners
  11. Our perfect start to the season lasted through September too and we're now four points clear a the top of the Bundesliga, having not even conceded a goal yet and well on track in the Champions League too, although it's back to back games against FC Barcelona up next
  12. A perfect start to life in Dortmund. Four games, four wins, and four clean sheets too but that wasn't quite enough to end August top of the table, as Schalke 04 have been banging the goals in.
  13. I've also got 10 players who are in the youth setup and have the potential to be first team regulars over the next few seasons, so I'll be keeping an eye on these guys if I'm here for a few seasons
  14. And I managed to bring in 5 really decent players to strengthen the squad Lozano is a right back from Colombia Erb is also a right back, from Germany Frías is a Colombian centre back Sugano is a German striker and Nem is a Brazilian winger
