echte liebe bvb

If you say Monaco was the better team, fuck off. They could take advantage of the attack from last week and they did it.
Honestly, I just think it’s better this way. That we’re out. I mean, did you see the players? Bürki looked like he had barely slept for a week… oh wait, he also barely slept and still commentators are going to criticize him like excuse fucking me, go sit next to your teammate that ends up injured and then play a CL game not even 24 hours later. Let’s see how you do it.
But I am just proud of my team for still playing. They weren’t bad, just in disadvantage. Not only one player, all of them. Rest of the season is going to be hard, but *singing* WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH A STORM, KEEP YOUR HEAD UP HIGH AND DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK. AT THE END OF A STORM, THERE’S A GOLDEN SKY AND THE SWEET SILVER SONG OF A LARK. WALK ON THEOUGH THE WIND, WALK ON THROUGH THE RAIN. THOUGH YOUR DREAMS BE TOSSED AND BLOWN. WALK ON, WALK ON, WITH HOPE IN YOUR HEART AND YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE 🖤💛

Actually I am not the most emphatic person ever but seeing Roman struggling so much with the attempt on the BVB squad, just breaks my heart. He looks so tired lately. I just want to kiss and cuddle him and tell him everything is gonna be ok. I could cry seeing him like this. I just hope his friends and family is there for him to support him, especially when he wakes up from a nightmare at night. It’s just too emotional for me seeing my lovely deer like this 😢😪💔

I want to post something that isn’t about the Chili Peppers or about my story (note: next chapter will be published tomorrow I guess).

But I was writing the new chapter when I heard on the news what happened in Dortmund on Tuesday. There was a bomb attack on the team bus of German football team Borussia Dortmund on their way to the stadium for their Champions League match against AS Monaco. BVB’s defender Marc Bartra got injured and needed surgery but he’s okay now. Also a policeman who escorted the bus on his motorcycle got injured.

It’s not sure whether it’s a terror attack by Islamist groups or not. I think the police and the prosecution need time to analyse the incident to get more information.

The game was postponed by the UEFA for yesterday’s evening. Borussia Dortmund lost the match 2-3.

I don’t know if it was the right decision that the match should be played only one day after. Coach Thomas Tuchel told the media that the team wasn’t asked if they are able to play or not. He wished they could’ve had more time to come to terms with what happened. But they got the message by the UEFA that the game will be one day later.
I think it’s luck that nothing worse happened. People could have died - and only 24 hours later they should play a football match again? I don’t know if this was the right decision. But seems like the schedule of the Champions League and the contracts with the sponsors are more important to the UEFA than how the players feel about it. I think they’re still suffering from this shock. Even if everyone says ‘they’re professionals, they can deal with it’. Sure they’re professional football players but they’re also human beings! We mustn’t forget this.

Some of the players told the media after the match that they couldn’t think about football the whole day and I can totally understand it. I think only the UEFA thought about football (and money!!!!) the whole time….

It’s shocking to see that something like that happened in my hometown to my favorite football club. I was so often at the stadium and never felt unsafe. It’s terrible how much shit is happening in the world in these “strange, obnoxious and uncontrollable times” (quoting Josh here).

But there was one aspect that came along with the incident that showed that people can stick together: fans of Borussia Dortmund offered fans of AS Monaco a stay or a bed for the night in Dortmund so they could’ve attended the match on the next day. The hashtag #bedforawayfans was trending very fast on Twitter so that the fans could offer their homes to Monaco fans. I think it’s a great gesture and it shows the helpfulness in these weird times.

#EchteLiebe (true love is the slogan of Borussia Dortmund) still exists!


You can watch BVB player Nuri Sahin giving an emotional interview after the match where he states ‘We’re only human beings’.

Explanation #echte liebe #bvb

maybe or maybe not some of my followers are wondering about the stuff I reblogged/posted today on my blog:

BVB09 is a german soccer team (Borussia Dortmund, most of you will know). Yesterday there was supposed to be the UEFA Championsleague game BVB vs Monaco.

But then the bus of our team was attacked, three severe explosions happened, the windows broke…it was a really bad situation.

One player, Marc Bartra injured his arm quiet badly, and he needed surgery. Luckiliy everything went well.

Another policeman who was driving a motorcycle in front of the bus was injured as well and suffers from the extreme shock.

The whole team was and is completely shaken, the play was cancelled. It was an attempt to kill the team and they’re still searching for the responsible.

The Monaco fans were shouting the name of BVB in the arena, the fans came together, let the fans of the other team stay over night at their houses. “You’ll never walk alone” was sung by all of them together.

Despite all this, the Uefa made them play today, exhausted and with probably no sleep at all. The BVB told their players they don’t have to play if they can’t and psychologists said it would be better not to.

Today at 18:45 in Germany they played the match. They played bc they never give up.

There was great support from the fans,but it hurt, it hurt to see the team like this. They were like in trance, no one was smiling, they couldn’t find any focus.

The UEFA didn’t allow the german public TV programs to show the match.

We were searching for livestreams like crazy.

After the first half we were losing 0:2.

But the team came back. Despite being nearly killed 20 hours before, they found their strenght and they scored!!!!! Once:

And twice:

In the end we lost 2:3, it was completely unfair to us, but that’s not the fault of Monaco who played well, it’s the fault of the UEFA.

Tognight we all came together, to suffer and to believe together. Supporteres from different teams supported the BVB tonight.

It was horrible, it was a fight, but they are all winners in the end.

WE’RE INCREDIBLY PROUD!!!!!!

What BVB has taught me...

The difference between BVB and Bayern M. is that when BVB win or lose is always about the team and for the team; with Bayern is always (or most of the time) about the rival team.

I mean, when BVB win we celebrate and congratulate the whole team and fans for their effort. When we lose, we can be mad and sad, but at the end we are still  there cheering our team ready for the next match.

Winning or losing it is all about our team and for our team.

When Bayern win we hear from them how they “destroyed” the rival team. When they lose we hear how and why “they are still better than the rival team”

Winning or losing it is all about their rival team.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us to enjoy and celebrate the victory but to recognize the effort and work of our rivals. Borussia Dortmund has taught us to live the defeat, to learn from it and to use it to be stronger later, and once again to recognize our rival.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us loyalty.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us friendship.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us love.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us respect.

Borussia Dortmund has taught us passion.

And that’s why I love this team, and I always will…
