I don't know why but I have always been drawn to St Pauli, possibly something to do with the skull and crossbones supporter flags. They are not in the Bundesliga at present though.

Watched some of the games over the weekend, I thought Dortmund were very good to be honest. I can see why there is a queue forming for Haarland, would be nice to see him in the Premier. Havertz from Leverkusen looks pretty useful as well.
Thought Havertz looked a real talent..

If you had to pick his position (only one) what would you put him as ?

A difficult question but I would say the number 10 position. An absolute playmaker but knows where the goal is. Reminds me of Periera with his creativity, there is no doubt he has a big future and I see that Liverpool are interested.

Skybet had Havertz 5/1 as the FGS last night - thank you :)

If Liverpool are interested, Havertz would be the ideal replacement for Firmino in the false 9 or as a more traditional "10" in a different set up.

St Pauli for me too. I found out all about them when I was over in Hamburg many years ago and have followed their fortunes ever since. Personally, I quite like their strip but can understand that it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. They have historic connections with Celtic too.
Although I know Hamburg very well, I've always watched Hamburger SV when I've been there. Its a strange rivalry they have because HSV's traditional rivals are Werder Bremen.
Pauli are the smaller club in terms of crowds, but they have a bit of a cult following. Their produce is sold everywhere, whereas HSV's can only be bought in club shops. There are some amusing anecdotes involving Pauli fans. The left wing image goes right up to board level as they opened up the pitch for demonstrators when the G7 was held in the city, as the police were moving them on from sleeping in parks.  Being situated in the red-light district, the players were often in the headlines for the wrong reasons, all-night benders etc. but I believe that's going back several years.

It is difficult to put him in a number
I think he’s more direct than Pererira, almost like a Rooney type.....I had him anytime and to win by more than one 😉

The bloke must be a nightmare to mark, two great headers yesterday but he has a great shot on him. A very exciting prospect.

For certain, either this or next. Leverkusen always seem to just hover around...

They looked good yesterday, though having M'Gladbach sympathies I was disappointed with the result.
The biggest problem with the Bundesliga is providing strong enough competition for Bayern. They have the financial clout and reputation to cream off the best players in Germany. Dortmund may be in with a chance, Leipzig have an excellent young coach (I think younger than some of his players) and then Leverkusen and Gladbach are outsiders.
That said, I'm watching most games on BT Sport and finding the standard good, also with lots of goals, (with the exception of Hamburger SV playing a 0-0 this lunchtime)

As a Canadian I can't help but cheer for Bayern.  Alphonso Davies is the best football player Canada has ever had by miles.  Our second best player ever might be Jonathan David who just won the goal scoring title in Belgium.  We are a country that just wants to qualify for the world cup having only made it once.  With a 19 year old Alphonso Davies and a 20 year old Jonathan David there's hope for the future!

I hope it all works out for you. It's a fantastic event to be involved in even though we always fail at the knockouts.

Can i ask why you chose to support the mighty WBA out of interest?
