I’ve just started to learn how to use the WordPress blogging software, so it’s a bit of a mess. But using the old method of a single ever growing text file wasn’t working. At some point I may convert the whole site into a structured blog format, but to be honest, I doubt I’ll spend the time.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for the front end, just click below:

Hope the site will be back!!!
Glad to have you back…your commentary has been missed and without you I have no idea how Wuppertal is doing.
Good to have you back! “Like” the new design, and – man, you seem to invest a LOT of work for this! Hope it pays back (in terms of positive feedback). Kudos,
Good to have you back. when you did not update for a long time at the start of the season, i was beginning to fear.all the best for future plans!

I’m glad you’re back up. I really enjoy your blog, keep on truckin’.
I know this topic doesn’t cover “German soccer” (i.e football, right?:-)) exactly, but what-the-hell (it’s really important!): I’d like you to comment about Monsieur Platini’s ideas for the ‘upcoming’ Euro 2020 tournament. He and UEFA and many others want it to take place in approx. 13 European countries. Sounds nice, but is – in my opinion – a rude offense to all true football fans and football culture (alike: “Qatar 2022”). Does UEFA expect them to travel f.e. from Germany to Turkey then to Sweden than to Russia then to ??? in case they want to support their team? Sounds kinda expensive. No problem for tv companies though.
Hmm… makes one think, doesn’t it?
PS I see baad similarities to the so-called ‘olympic movement’: tennis f.e. has been re-introduced as an olympic discipline since 1988. Any pro player (some of them earning millions each year) can participate after qualification. That’s not exactly the real amateur olympic spirit, is it? Btw, Squash seems to be a very popular sport worldwide. A lot more popular than, let’s say, triple jump or hammer throw or synchronized swimming… but hard to transmit on tv. Hm. Hmmmm….
To make a long story short: the ‘olympic movement’ has no traditional fan culture like in football. There appears to be some potential here…
Let’s go & regards,
