On condition that Mario Götze will be ready and fit until Saturday he will increase our quality. Whether we will have more chances to win with Götze is questionable. There will be massive pressure on him. He will play against his new employer and all people, really all of them, will keep tabs on him. Already in his last matches during his negotiations with Bayern and around his final decision he didn’t play his best football. If he is able to slip off all the pressure and be fully motivated to play against his new club, Mario Götze will increase our chances.
Is that what I really want?
If I were Matthias Sammer who believes that everything has to unconditionally submitted to success, I would say yes. Fortunately I am not Matthias Sammer. I am a fan of Borussia Dortmund since 1984. And I love this club because of its fans, emotions, city and tradition. Additionally I am delighted with the way our team plays football for the last four years – full of passion. That’s distinguishes me from all those Bayern fans in the Ruhr area, who are fans because of Bayern titles. – By the way, I will never understand why some people, who were born in our Ruhr area with so many good clubs around, could be Bayern München fans as of this writing. If I would have nothing more than success, I would like to see fit and motivated Mario Götze in the starting lineup.
Hm, I want our emotions, the „true love“ even when football today is almost exclusively business. We at Dortmund still kept a little piece of „true love“ and emotions. Yes, of course I want us to beat Bayern. This would be great and I would run naked on the streets, but not at any price.
Therefore I would like to see a player like Kevin Großkreutz on the pitch instead of new Bavarian star Mario Götze. Why souldn’t we win with kevin instead of Götze? However, Mario Götze had to stop training in the afternoon due to his injury. Maybe there will be no option on Saturday.
Just one more thing: I will celebrate our team regardless of whether we will win or not. Borussia played an outstanding Champions-league season. We should be very proud of the team. We are more than success, we are emotions. A blueprint for many clubs in the meantime. I have never read or heard about a club who wants to copy Bayern München, do you have?
