    Additional time in the first half of today's game in Nuremberg. Ref awards a corner to Dortmund. Suddenly the Nuremberg fans start to throw little soft black balls on to the pitch, which they have done twice in that game before (in protest against Monday games in the Bundesliga). As a result the referee blows the whistle for half time without giving Dortmund the chance to execute the corner. So, all this time watching football we fans were able to end a game? Just by throwing a couple of balls onto the pitch? Great. From now on I'm going to do that every time we have a lead! That was already a terribly officiated match without even considering that scene. But I have never seen something like that in my life. What on earth was he thinking?

    Don't think it'll be too hard for you to get him on a permanent deal in the summer if he likes it in Glasgow. Favre certainly has absolutely no use for him (I think he has been in a match roster this season only once or twice despite Schmelzer missing a lot of games). For Toljan it's just about being a consistent defender. He does fine offensively but the occasional brain fart in defence does happen a little too often for the liking of most BVB fans.

    Davies made his first Bundesliga appearance today. Got subbed on in the 86th minute for Kingsley Coman.

    I think that's a very generalising statement to make. You are right that there are incidents in European football where the UEFA or some national associations haven't done a good enough job of punishing fans or players who made racist remarks etc. We haven't had an incident in Germany where a whole group of fans made racist remarks towards a player in I don't even know how long. Judging by the media that happens mostly in Italy (think there was an incident in England recently, though). I know for example my club Borussia Dortmund is doing everything they can to eradicate right wing extremists from our stands. The city of Dortmund has a bit of a history with those people and in the northern part of the city still has problems with neo nazis and such. So did the club up until the late 80s (maybe you'll find something if you google 'Borussenfront'). Since then they have handed out hundreds of bans, dissolved multiple right winged fan groups and cooperated with the police to single out those individuals to identify them and have them arrested. They started a fan project and employ multiple social workers nowadays to prevent right wing extremism in the city and the stands. And we are far from being the only club in Germany doing something like that. I don't think that there is evidence that would suggest that there is systemic racism from refs towards African players for example.

    And what does that have to do with the decision of the referee?

    Really? A blown call by the referee in a meaningless game and you suspect racism? Overreaction much? Huge migrant crisis might be a tad too much as well.

    Yes. He's also hit a teammate in the face a few years ago and earlier this year he did the same to a French journalist. He's also had numerous occasions on field where he should've been sent off due to him elbowing etc. Other clubs would have gotten rid of such a character (or lack thereof) ages ago. But to quote Bayern president Uli Hoeneß (who served a sentence for tax evasion himself not too long ago), it's the Bayern family, so... They have a bit of a mobster mentality going on at the club with Hoeneß back at the helm.

    Classy as always. Perfect fit for Bayern.

    Terrible play calling throughout the game from the Hawks imo

    Janikowski looks to be out for the game. Hawks will probably have to resort to Michael Dickson's Dropkicks now

    Well. So far, so boring.

    Good time for Davies to come in. Bayern having a bad season, Ribery and Robben showing their age. Coman and Gnabry are injured a lot. Davies has been in training with Bayern since the end of MLS regular season. Bundesliga is in winter break now and he can have an additional 2-3 weeks of preparation. Still, as a Dortmund fan, I hope he fails miserably. Going to be one hell of a game.

    Pulisic to Chelsea for 64m € + loan back to Dortmund until the end of this season. That's a lot for a player who has spent most of his time on the bench this season and has only 18 months left on his contract. Must be one expensive passport. Susi Zorc committing highway robbery here. Love it. To Pulisic, I hope he can focus on what he can do best. This season his head already seems to be somewhere else. Trying too much 1-on-1s which is not his strong suit. Should focus more on his passing game. He could still be a very good player for Chelsea, but he should stop trying to be Ousmane Dembélé or Jadon Sancho. If he continues doing that he will fail at Chelsea. But Sarri might be a good coach for him to get rid of that habit.
