The Yellow wall
It would be an understatement to define the stadium of Borussia Dortmund as their home. The turbulent and enigmatic supporters make the stadium much more than that. The Signal Iduna Park turns into a spectacle, which gets behind their team with full force. They become a force to reckon with. Such is the enthusiasm of the supporters of Dortmund that sometimes they need to be tamed down. An instance of this incidence was the match between Napoli and Dortmund. Napoli was playing hosts to the team and with the team came the horde of supporters. The supporters of Napoli were outclassed by the supporters in terms of voice. This frustrated the Napoli faithful to such an extent that they decided to turn up the speakers of the area where the Dortmund fans were sitting. This was done to make Dortmund fans realize how violent their support comes out when they unite as a single unit. Nevertheless, the fans of Dortmund are one of the most fantastic fans around the whole world. The madness which they share can only be met by a few across the whole world.
Dortmund started their campaign with a 3-0 victory away from home. The next game saw them play Hertha BSC in their own backyard. Dortmund was to play their first match of the season at Signal Iduna Park. This was enough cause to propel the supporters towards their holy ground. This was the first time in this season they were getting to flex their muscles. Dortmund on the other hand to reciprocate the support shown to them. They needed to show the winning mentality which they possessed and they were ready to challenge the title. Borussia had fresh memories with a win over Wolfsburg. They comfortably won with a score line of 3-0. Aubameyang, Pulisic, and Bartra being the scorers. Their opponents Hertha BSC also had won their first fixture against Stuttgart. Hertha winning 2-0. Both the teams were hoping for a win before they hit the international break.
The match was won by Borussia Dortmund defeating Hertha by 2-0. The goals scored by Aubameyang and Nuri Sahin. Aubameyang was assisted by Sahin for the first goal. Sahin crossed the ball which fell sweetly for Aubameyang who fired it past the Hertha goalkeeper in the bottom right corner. Nuri Sahin scored the second goal. Pulisic attempted to cross the ball into the opposition penalty area but it ricochets from two defenders. Nuri was there to take the chance as he fired a thunderous shot from just outside the box, thereby making it 2-0. The man of the match was Sahin as he provided an assist as well as scored a stunner. The match also went on to emphasize on some major points.
Getting everything in order
Borussia have taken the services of a new manager. Tuchel gets sacked from the post, and Peter Bosz is hired. Under his manager regime, Dortmund has so far scored 5 goals, and have conceded none. It goes on to tell that the new tactics which are being dictated by the manager are something which the players are responding to. They are falling in line with the manager’s tactics and understand his philosophy. It is important for any team to understand the principles. This is going well which also helps him to earn reputation and respect of fans and players alike. Dortmund has lost one of the most influential players in this transfer window. After losing Dembele to Barcelona, it looked a difficult path for them to recoup their squad and move ahead. However, Dortmund makes a statement by playing so well. They go on to ascertain the fact that no player is bigger than the team. They have also gone on to find the replacements for the player.
Dortmund receives a huge amount of cash which they can spend on buying more players which have more technical aspects of their game. They can buy refined players for different positions. The current reports coming in suggest that Dortmund is readying a bid for the German playmaker Ozil. The arrival of Ozil will certainly help them to sharpen their attack. Borussia already has the likes of Mario Gotze and Reus. If Ozil comes into the picture, one can only but fear the attacking options which Dortmund shall possess. This is somewhat necessary for the Dortmund team as the team can upgrade with the cash splashed on them. They may have lost a good player but they can bring in players with class, which can help them strengthen the squad.
Marching forward with full confidence
