There are lots great sources for you to keep up to date with the latest news and stats the Bundesliga, but smart, informed, insightful, analytical, all encompassing German football coverage is HARD to find.
Sure you can read your Germ…
Sure you can read your German football Bible/kicker magazine, check out the gifs on Twitter, gaze at the XG maps or even read the growing number excellent tactical analyses, but what does it all mean? As everyone is competing for your very valuable attention, allow me to throw my hat in the ring and try to see more clearly:
We will start each edition with the Headlines: the biggest stories the weekend put in perspective, as well as the most important games analyzed in depth. If you are just getting into the German football game, this newsletter is also definitely for you, but if you already know the ins and outs Bruno Labbadia’s 4-3-3 pressing schemes you’re still more than welcome and hopefully will benefit from the insights. What if I have no idea who Vincenzo Grifo is, or what Makoto Hasebe’s role is at Frankfurt, much less the buildup play Hannes Wolf at HSV? Don’t worry, we’ll only cover those on week 4 :)
Each week, I will also try to provide some player scouting, recruitment advice, tactical breakdowns, present some unsung heroes, and add some background info on the personnelplayer moves. Eventually, it is my desire to include interviews with playersexecutivesjournalistsexperts German football, in different formats (audiovideotext).
