In celebration for FC Köln being promoted to the Bundesliga… I thought I would share with you guys my video from when I went to Cologne and to a match. I absolutely loved the city and the people. I can’t wait to go back again. 

Congrats again FC Köln!

Big Points at the Bottom

"Three clubs took a huge step towards survival this weekend. SV Werder Bremen are, to all intents and purposes, clear of the relegation mire after a 3-1 victory over 1899 Hoffenheim that leaves them nine points clear of the play-off spot.

SC Freiburg can also dare to look ahead to next season in the top flight after an emphatic 4-2 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach took them eight points clear of 16th. Hannover 96 also secured three important points by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 in last Thursday’s rearranged game that gave them a seven-point cushion in the standings.”

Rampant Dortmund Vanquish Champions Bayern

"Borussia Dortmund took the Klassiker spoils thanks to an emphatic 3-0 win over ten-man FC Bayern München at the Allianz Arena.

BVB settled quickly and took a deserved lead through Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with quick-fire second half goals from Marco Reus and Jonas Hofmann rounding out a comfortable evening’s work, before Rafinha picked up a needless red card in injury time.”

Harnik sealed the points for Stuttgart with two minutes left on the clock, firing home from close range and lifting the Swabians of the relegation zone, albeit on goal difference.”
