For the new Bundesliga season, BundesPremierLeague is rolling out a new feature: a podcast called Ten minute Bundesliga previews that you can find on Soundcloud as well.
The basic idea and the reason for the podcast is to give a quick summary of each team before the new Bundesliga season starts in late August. If you missed the transfer window, tuned out soccer for the summer, and\or were too busy watching the Olympics or the Euros to keep up with your club’s events, this is your chance to catch up. While the episodes and the previews are aiming to introduce the Bundesliga to a larger English-speaking audience, there will be more than enough content for die-hard fans to get a couple of nuggets for the upcoming season. I mean don’t you wanna impress your friends before the Bundesliga kicks off?
The format is as follows: we will start by briefly discussing the club’s background and history, moving on to last season’s performance. That is followed by some offseason transfers and finally we give a preview of next year, ending with a season prediction, with a number indicative of their predicted finish in the 16\17 season.
Always one of the more likeable Bundesliga clubs, Borussia Dortmund have turned into one of club football’s juggernaut. Few would have imagined that the transition from the Klopp era would be so smooth and so effortless as Thomas Tuchel made it look last year. BVB took the league by storm, playing a great mix of beautiful yet effective football, but ultimately fell short on the home front as well as in Europe. This summer brough seismic changes in the BVB landscape, as the roster underwent a massive overhaul during an eventful transfer window (detailed here). Dortmund have not been shy about spending over 100 million Euros to mount another challenge in the Bundesliga. What is on the cards for these guys in 16\17? Listen and find out!
Thanks and stay tuned for more Ten Minute Bundesliga Previews to be posted soon, as the Bundesliga gets underway in just a few hours!
