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.
Borussia Mönchengladbach, the kings of the Bundesliga in the seventies, are an exciting club with a reputation of developing amazing young talent. BMG managed to still finish fourth last season despite opening their Bundesliga account with five straight losses and replacing longtime coach Lucien Favre, with reserve team manager Andre Schubert. The Foals, as they are known, were one of the most fun to watch teams, and that trend should continue next season. Can Gladbach sustain their position behind Dortmund and Bayern as the Bundesliga’s perennial challenger, or will they fall back with the rest of the pack? Listen and find out!
Thanks and stay tuned for more Ten Minute Bundesliga Previews to be posted in the next couple of days as the Bundesliga gets underway this week!
