The good league form came to an abrupt end against Bayern who've moved 13 points clear and we're 4 points clear of Leipzig now. We also did the impossible and an amazing 1st half saw us defeat Real Madrid 6-3 on aggregate!

Another DFB-Pokal defeat, this time against Bayern in the Semi-Final and we've also got a lot of work to do in the Champions League as we started brightly against Man City but they ended up with the win thanks to goals from Aguero and Saul. In the league though we have 3 games left and we're 6 clear of 3rd placed Dortmund!

Solid end to the season and I'm very happy with a 2nd placed finish since close to halfway through we were only in mid table, next season we'll just have to try again to catch Bayern.

2020/21 Pre-Season

923ab64382c3fce6a801f514e5198026.png

A more mixed pre-season but we destroyed Bradford, we were very disappointing against Arminia Bielefeld needing to score in the 118th minute to take it to penalties, they've just been promoted to the 2nd tier.

Niklas was the only major departure since Bayern met his release clause.

The Champions League draw has already been made, a nice group again with Inter being the main threat to top spot.

Honestly, not a clue, it just seems to go like that once we reach a 2nd season in the Champions League.

A mixed month with the low being the loss to Feriburg who are struggling early on, despite this we're up in 2nd and all of the big clubs other than RB Leipzig have started a bit slower than normal with Dortmund in 8th, Leverkusen in 10th and Bayern in 13th after 5 games. In the Champions League we're top of the group...I guess.

Really happy with October with us scoring 22 goals in just 6 games and us actually being top of the table! (even if it's just by 1 point) In the Champions League Inter smashed Anderlecht 5-0 away from home so they're ahead of us in the table.

Just over 1/3rd of the campaign gone and we're 4 points clear of Leverkusen with the best goal difference! In the Champions League there was a shock home draw against Celtic but then we thrashed Inter 5-2 to put us top of the group with a game to play, all we need to do now is beat Anderlecht away from home, hopefully we can do that.

A solid set of mid-season friendlies and 2 wins sees us hit the top of the table again, but Dortmund and Bayern are in amazing form, so are RB Leipzig but they have a few more points to make up. No-one has joined us in the transfer window and the only players to leave are some on loan.

Dortmund knock us out of the cup in the 3rd round which is the worst we've done so far, they've also knocked us off of the top spot in the league, with 11 games left we're now playing catch up and we really need to turn these draws into wins.

Close to perfect with us winning the Supercup, we also beat both Man Utd and Porto and destroyed Stade Rennais and won the Friendly Cup, so I guess we've won a double already? :D

One major departure with Klostermann being tempted by Bayern...I know what it feels like for Southampton now.

Tesche comes in as someone who looks good already and has more potential, and he was pretty cheap.

Losses to Chelsea and RB Leipzig sees us stay 2nd in both the league and CL but if we'd have scored one goal more then we'd be top on goal difference, hopefully we can carry on with the good form and continue to challenge at the top.

We beat Chelsea and we destroyed Basel so we should qualify for the 1st knockout round top of the group as long as we don't mess things up against Besiktas and in the league Bayern slip up with back-to-back-to-back-to-back draws and leave us 4 points clear!

We didn't mess up and as you can see we easily dismantled Besiktas away from home! We're also still going great guns in the league and are now 7 points clear of Bayern!

A poor month in the league but it hasn't affected us too much as we stay 6 points clear, but we now have RB Leipzig are in great form and are now our closest challengers. Nobody joined us in the transfer window and there were no significant exits either.

A shock loss to FC Nurnberg before back-to-back big wins against Darmstadt and Koln as well as beating Zenit 5-0 on aggregate. They set up with an ultra defensive 3-4-2-1 and even when they had 2 men sent off we struggled to break them down.

We've retained the league! Still 2 games to play as well but we managed to get a surprisingly easy win against 10-man Bayern Munich! A negative though is that we're out of the cup yet again following a narrow loss to Dortmund and we also have an uphill battle to win against Juventus in the Champions League since Goretzka managed to get himself suspended for the home leg.

A big win over Chelsea hands us the lead in the Champions League group and we're ahead on goal difference, goals scored and head-to-head so all we need to do is better Chelsea's result in our final match. In the league we lost to RB Leipzig but we were perfect in every other game and we sit one point ahead of Dortmund after 13 games.

Just the one league game where we were able to take revenge on FC Nurnberg after the 1st game of the season and it sees us 6 points behind Dortmund with 3 games in hand. We lost 3 players in January, but only on loan so nothing really to talk about there and no-one came in either.
