Bundesliga 2011-2012 Review:dortmund Uber Alles

     The 49th season of the German 1.Bundesliga,one of the most exciting and powerful football leagues in the world,delighted football fans again with high quality matches and plenty of drama that kept viewers enthralled throughout the season.

   BORUSSIA DORTMUND,the champion of the previous edition,has done it again!This is paradoxically the biggest surprise of the season in my opinion because very few people thought them capable of repeating the achievement,and after a poor start it appeared that they wouldn't have a good evolution,but then came an amazing unbeaten run of 28 matches,including two wins against the mighty Bayern Munich,which allowed Borussia

to finish the tournament in style,with 81 points,8 ahead of its rival,and 80 goals scored.I think the key to this success consists in the fact that Borussia managed to keep its manager,Jurgen Klopp,and almost all the players who became champions last year,and thus the quality of its evolution reached new height,making Borussia Dortmund one of the most attractive teams to watch in football at the moment,and BAYERN MUNICH fans can do nothing but  accept the fact that Borussia is the best team in Germany;if anyone had any doubt about that,the champions from Dortmund proved their superiority again by thrashing the Munich giants in the German Cup final(5-2) and achieving a historical double.Now it's time for Borussia to shine in Europe as well,such as Bayern did this season;if they can keep key players like Kagawa,Schmelzer,Gotze,Lewandowski and so on,they will certainly make history in the Champions League as well.However,it all depends on what will happen during the transfer period because the richest clubs in Europe are after these fantastic players.I sincerely hope Borussia won't sell them and maintain its high standards of playing.

   The recently finished season of Bundesliga was also more exciting because Germany gained an extra position in the Champions League at the expense of Italy;SCHALKE finished in 3rd place and BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH was the revelation of the season,finishing 4th and earning the right to play in the Champions League play-offs;it was the


revival of a club which made sensation in Europe many years ago,and it will be interesting to see if they can remain at the top for another season and play well in Europe too.Other teams whose supporters have reasons to be pleased are BAYER LEVERKUSEN,VFB STUTTGART and HANNOVER 96,who qualified for the UEFA Europa LEAGUE,while other tems who were expected to do better finished the competition in medoicrity(WERDER BREMEN,VFL WOLFSBURG and HAMBURGER SV).

   Of course,some teams had to live the bitter experience of relegation;after the play-off was over,3 clubs with a rich history went down;HERTHA BERLIN,1.FC KOLN and 1.FC KAISERSLAUTERN are all big names which brought sadness in the hearts of their fans,and the next season of the second division promises to be very exciting as well,because none of these clubs can accept the situation of being out of the elite of German football.On the other side,two other important names in the history of Bundesliga,EINTRACHT FRANKFURT and FORTUNA DUSSELDORF,are back in the first division and hungry for success.These newcomers,which also include GREUTHER FURTH,who also managed to promote after a few unsuccessful attempts,will try to survive in an extremely competitive league hich promises to offer us even more quality football in the following season.We'll have to wait until late August for the next Bundesliga edition to start,but it will definitely be worth waiting because it is undoubtedly one of the top leagues in the world.
