Why havent any Dortmund players invited Immobile for dinner to their houses?



I read a funny and poor interview with Bild p (sounds like a trashy rag).

From another forum I visit:

about germans:
"they are cold, you can´t do anything about it."

about his dortmund teammates:
"since i´ve joined dortmund no teammate has invited me to his home for dinner."

then actually some nice words about the comparisons to lewandowski, his relationship with klopp and about dortmund´s relegation battle.
at the end he complains that bild (the newspaper) hates him and dortmund because they are located in munich (they are not ^^).

He already apologized for the interview. His explanation was it was meant to be funny.

yeah, bloody Bild.. that interview caused some brouhaha in the sports media over the weekend, but immobile already explained that this sentence wasnt meant in the way Bild produced it afterwards.

And i am 100% sure Großkreutz invited him to his favorite Döner restaurant..

Lol, one of the most awkward interviews for sure. Its like he was begging to be sold with those statements hehe.


These two are better at handling PR IMO (click on subtitles, works)

Both have one more thing in common. They both never won a CL. p

Well, in all honesty I think Buffon is too old to still win one but Reus can do it.

Yeah obviously true p But Reus needs to leave for that to happen.

Yes of course but because I am in the Dortmund forum I didn't want to say it like that. You are not as friendly as me.

Btw, I just realized that Reus has actually not won anything at all yet. He arrived in Dortmund after their successful years and also missed the WC.

Reus is 25 and has all the chances to win titles with the BVB if they manage to draw the right conclusions after this season. Reus showed that he has balls by rejecting obvious offers from european top clubs and he thinks BVB can be a part of those european top notches for the coming years, and i would second that.

for me personally, i dont judge players by their trophies and of course it was bad luck for Reus to get injured in the last match before the World Cup.

eg Jan Schlaudraff is not the better player just because the was in the championship team 2007/08.

Of course you can't judge players by titles, I absolutely agree.

Kevin Kampl had a breakdown during the flight to Turin and is highly doubtful for the match tonight. he also missed the final training yesterday...

options to replace Kampl in the starting line-up:
1. move PEA to Kampls position, Immobile/Ramos upfront. Would be a very offensive approach imo
2. Kuba to replace Kampl 1:1
3. Mhkitaryan to replace Kampl
4. Großkreutz to replace Kampl

Can't see Kuba starting seeing as he just played an official match for the first time since January 2014 at the weekend, far too soon for him. Grosskreutz is still out for 2-3 weeks I believe (was he called to play or just to be there?).

Mkhitaryan will likely be his replacement, big chance for him to prove himself to Klopp and maybe his potential suitors here.

should be the ideal match for our gameplay. sit back and wait what Juve is doing and try to hurt them on counter attacks with PEA and Reus. that requires an improvement on our defensive side of course.

Starting lineup, confirmed:

Weidenfeller
Piszczek - Sokratis - Hummels - Schmelzer
Gundogan - Sahin
Mkhitaryan - Reus - Aubameyang
Immobile

Bench: Langerak, Ginter, Kirch, Kehl, Blaszcykowski, Kagawa, Ramos

Pretty offensive approach from Klopp here. Key will be to double up threats on their suspect backline, press their midfielders into mistakes, and try to take advantage of any set piece opportunities that come. Huge chances for Ciro and Miki to prove a point tonight, let's hope they come up big and BVB come out of this with a good result for the return leg.

I'm sweating bricks, hopefully 2nd half ends quickly and is uneventful
