1. Bundesliga 2016/17 Season

Time to open the thread for the new season as the DFB released the fixtures for the upcoming season which starts later than usual due to the Euros (August 26) with the DFB Pokal starting a week prior and the Super Cup being played on August 14 between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund

http://s.bundesliga.com/assets/doc/1...2_original.pdf

The BL season opens with Bayern Munich hosting Werder Bremen on a Friday night fixture. RB Leipzig open their campaign fittingly away to Hoffenheim Their first home game will be against Dortmund.

Six clubs have new managers to start the season. Carlo Ancelotti is the new Bayern manager after Pep Guardiola left for Manchester City. The other openings were a result of a domino effect. Schalke hire Markus Weinzierl from Augsburg who in return appointed Dirk Schuster from Darmstadt, forcing Darmstadt to hire Norbert Meier. Ralph Hasenhuttl left Ingolstadt to take over RB Leipzig while Ingolstadt appointed Markus Kauczinski.

Some of the transfers are in the old thread but we will keep updating the new ones here

Guardiola keeps looking to the Bundesliga for Man City signings as Leroy Sane is apparently close to joining, fee of about 42m pounds.

Benatia set to leave Bayern to return to Serie A with Juventus

Alex Meier will remain at Frankfurt despite interest from abroad

Hoffenheim sign Hamburg midfielder Kerim Demirbay

Stuttgart winger Filip Kostic is wanted by HSV but the price demand may be too high, there is also interest in Italy for him

Do you have a list about who have been coaches at their BL club the longest? Or who are the 5-10 longest reigning ones?

What I'm interested in is where Pal Dardai is at the moment. Like is he already in the top 5? Cus there has been a heck of a lot of coaches that were fired recently.

Longest tenured current BL managers (as of today)

1. Christian Streich (Freiburg) 4 years, 6 months, 16 days
2. Dieter Hecking (Wolfsburg) 3 years, 6 months, 16 days
3. Peter Stoger (Koln) 3 years, 1 month, 6 days
4. Roger Schmidt (Bayer Leverkusen) 2 years, 17 days

Skripnik (Bremen), Schmidt (Mainz), Labbadia (Hamburg) and Dardai (Hertha) each have coached their clubs for 13-20 months, Tuchel just over one year, the rest under a year with six new appointees in the summer. So Dardai is 8th

Longest tenured all time I believe is Volker Finke who spent 16 years at Freiburg. On that list is Rehhagel at Bremen as well. Klopp at Mainz and Dortmund is in the top 10 as well. The others are probably from the 60s/70s

Top 10 all-time:
1. Thomas Schaaf (Werder Bremen)
2. Volker Finke (SC Freiburg)
3. Otto Rehhagel (Werder Bremen)
4. Winfried Schäfer (Karlsruher SC)
5. Hennes Weisweiler (Borussia Mönchengladbach)
6. Eduard Geyer (Energie Cottbus)
7. Werner Lorant (1860 München)
8. Jupp Heynckes (Borussia Mönchengladbach)
9. Jürgen Klopp (FSV Mainz 05)
10. Helmut Johannsen (Eintracht Braunschweig)

What HS forgot is that Finke did get relegated multiple times in the stint. Also Rehhagel took over Bremen in 2nd Bundesliga.

So also in the current ones I would put Hecking at #1, Stöger #2, Schmidt #3, Skripnik #4, Dardai #5, Schmidt #6 (was 12 days later than Dardai ), Labbadia #7, Tuchel #8, Schubert #9 and Nagelsmann #10.

But of course it's a matter of definition.

In an ironic twist, Dortmund have signed more players from Bayern this summer than vice-versa

I see it as a good thing, it was long overdue for Dortmund to start having a say again and a stronghold in the transfer market instead of seeing their best players leave the club due to bad clauses in their contracts and due to other clubs being able to offer them higher wages. Now Dortmund can finally afford to have depth on the bench, something they lacked severely at times in the past 2 seasons.

So no important players have left Dortmund this summer? The squad changed so much this transfer window I wonder how soon it all works out on the pitch. I hope it won't take too long.

Well 3 players left and 7 new players came in. Last summer, 12 players left and 8 came in so this is definitely a good transfer window for Dortmund. Hummels will be tough to replace as I don't rate Bartra highly but Mkhitaryan and even Gundogan can both easily be replaced, especially Mkhitaryan who in fairness had one decent season at the club in his 3 seasons there.

I don't know how reliable this news is but some our media reporting that Wolfsburg is near to sign Filip Kostić for around 15 mil. euros?

No idea about the price, but the rest seems sure. I read it yesterday, just can't remember the price.

Maybe is better for him to go there? If he isn't sure he is caliber for side like Wolfsburg is then it's better to go to some less demanding team.

Personally I think he should be better for to be Wolfsburg player.
