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.
Hamburger SV are another one of the Bundesliga’s sleeping giants, a club with a great pedigree, a rich and successful history. In recent years, HSV have failed to live up to their own lofty expectations (the reasons and a more in-depth look at their situation can be found here). This summer the club has spent quite a lot of money to improve the squad by adding some much-needed talent. Will the Dinosaurs be able to return to their glory day, or at least content for a top half finish? Listen to the episode to 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!
