We remain attractive

The discussion about Julian Brandt's unfortunate change now flies by quickly. Nevertheless, thanks again to Julian for five and a half fire-tastic years under the Bayer Cross.

Unfortunately, a young player is trying to find the best way for his career. We have qualified for the Champions League and yet he is still the temptation of the BVB inferior. Without a doubt Julian is a great talent, but irreplaceable? No, no player is irreplaceable.
 
Even if only a quarter of the current rumours on the transfer market are true. Bayer Leverkusen is once again an attractive place to be, and that's a positive sign.

The anthem resounds again in the BayArena

To be honest, I didn't think that was possible for a long time and the team has shown all critics what is possible in the last weeks and months. With a precision landing on the last matchday and a 5:1 victory in Berlin that was never at risk, the Werkself moved up to 4th place in the final table and entered the Champions League.

Today one could see in view of the constellations on the other places what the supposed point win against Schalke at home last week was worth.

Today I'm celebrating, but I'm sure that from tomorrow on the gazettes will start to speculate about potential retirements and new players. That's what they call a summer break. Anyway, I first register the CL match days in my calendar and nobody takes them out of my calendar.

Now it can only get better

The first message of the day is: Next year we will definitely play in an international competition.

The second message is: Even though our boys only scored one point against Schalke today and thus qualified for the Euro League, the Champions League is still within reach.

Our potential opponents have the more difficult tasks in a home match against Dortmund or an away match in Munich than we do in Berlin. But of course, first we have to do our homework and then see what the rest does. But please don't miss the CL again like last year because of the goal ratio.

So full concentration on the last of 45 games and once again give everything for the better European Cup.

Just don't let up

Okay, nobody would have expected the fantastic 6:1 against Frankfurt in advance. But it was just a game on the way to the finish, admittedly an important one. And the Bavarian has shown that he can also win important games. Everything is still open at the finish. Weeks ago I didn't dream that we would come back like this. And yesterday it was really fun to watch the team. I think it was the best half I've ever seen in the BayArena.

Saturday Schalke waits. They are saved now. There I do not know whether the team collapses or pulls itself together, in order to show that it goes nevertheless. Nothing destotrotz, a threesome is obligatory for us. That would help us a lot, especially since all the other competitors for the international places don't have easy games ahead of them either.

Something is going on again. The joy is back. That's how Bayer is fun.

Promising start to the EuroLeague

I would have expected more from a top French team than what I saw tonight in the BayArena in Nice. The Werkself started the game in a concen...
