Week 2 and sod the individual threads for Union Berlin when I was the only one watching.!
All kicks ff tonight with THE BIG ONE
Hertha Berlin v Union Berlin 19:30 your time BT Sport 1
These two sides faced each other in the Bundesliga for the first time back in November and a ferociously competitive match ended in a 1-0 victory for newly-promoted Union. But despite Sebastian Polter’s last-minute penalty it was the supporters who made headlines with flares thrown onto the pitch and Union players forced to hold back a group of ultras who had invaded the pitch to confront Hertha players.
Feisty little number then, and the chance for me to “name drop” my trip to the Olympic Stadium back in 2006 for a Corporate Gig Croatia v Brazil with Emirates where I found myself sitting directly behind Sepp Blatter and managed to be pissed out of my brain for 2 days.
Continuing “The Big Derby” theme, the ever popular FC Koln are at home again to struggling Fortuna Dusseldrf in the Sunday night game which loooks suspiciously like an 17:30 Kick off in UK on one web site & 17:00 on another!
FC Koln v Fortuna Dusseldorf 24/05 17:00 BT Sport 1
Strangely there are other games all over the weekend but for some reason, none from BL2.
I am sure you will all be overjoyed that I have NO intention of creating any Polls
