Don't have one.

For me, it's not about watchability, it's about how all of them are bayern bitches. In spain you have barcelona and real who are dominant as fuck, but still you don't have that sort of feeling of complete inferiority of other teams. You get a feeling bundesliga exists so that bayern and german national team can have a constant stream of quality players to choose from and everyone else is there to pick up scraps, and it's absolutely pathetic.

same. But at least its not always the same winner.
The worst of them all is the Premier League where 70% of the league plays the same way and now the winner is always the same even.

As long as it's not a game between those 30% teams, it's just not worth watching.

With the Bundesliga the last decade has been harsh because of Bayern's utter dominance and this was a great chance to put a break to that and perhaps give us a few more years of the top teams being more competitive but no, it's looking more like the Bulgarian or Austrian league here in terms of who wins.
At least it's not by cheating like it was in Greece or Italy.


Bundesliga has by far the best football culture out of the top leagues and out of all European leagues I'd say. The Eredivisie (Netherlands) and perhaps the Scottish Premier are next.

But overall football is kind of fucked with all this concentrated marketing on all the low attention span dumb fucks that just want to see "the best players" even if those are recycled every year apart from a handful and "the best teams", which means more money going to the same teams over and over. Which in turn gives the Champions League too much spotlight over the other UEFA competitions, which wasn't the case until fairly recently (started in the mid 2000s probably after they removed the Cup Winners Cup and started to make the Uefa Cup a mickey mouse tournament with a silly 5 team group before rebranding it)


I'd much rather watch German football, even down to third tier, than most other leagues we have. The atmosphere more than makes up for whatever you may not like from the players and teams.
Same with several Serie B clashes or even lower.
Same with a few 2nd tier English fixtures over half of the PL fixtures that are plain and tasteless.

But yeah, something needs to be done to stop the Bayern dominance. Or the PSG dominance. Or whatever effect CL money has in leagues like Croatia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark etc

Don't want to be Dortmund fan rn. What a painful day or experience to walk away from the stadium or even shutting down TV. They're all like : " Dude, wtf just happened?"

big respect to mainz and koln who played until the end, unlike milan's opponents last year in the last few rounds
so right. Im still pissed of this. Sure im not expecting that Sassuolo necessary has to draw/win but at least they could try or look like they would try.. not even this. It almost was like they wanted them to become champion

Serie A was the same up until three years ago, England is the same now, French league is the same, but even they had a few different league winners over the last decade. Spain has three different winners over the last 10 years at least.

Indeed Bundes is the worst league of all though. No argument can be made in this league's favour when 11 years there's the same champion. Also, what @vex said. I get the feeling that everyone wants to move abroad or join Bayern so they can smell silverware. I don't know if German sports media are Bayern München's bitch, like they are to Juventus in Italy, but if even that's the case it must be the most soul-crushing league of all top5 leagues.

Their owner was a hardcore Milanista , who passed away. He probably had bonuses for the squad for defeating Inter and taking it easy vs Milan.

respect to everyone that actually watches this league and wastes its time year after year.

Not so long ago Juventus won 9 championships successively. :rolleyes:



Kahn wrote on Twitter and Instagram that Bayern hasn't allowed him to be in the stadium in Köln. What kind of disrespect for a club legend.

yes, and the league was shit then just as the Bundesliga... The problem is, I don't see 4 different teams in Germany that could be champs in the next couple of years. Even if BVB wins it next year, Bayern will win 5+ next. It's a 1 team league. Just like France, even tho I think PSG players sometimes don't even care if they win the league or not.

Bad luck BVB, they were champs for last 5 mins until Bayern ruthlessly scored a late winner. C

Comback was too much for them to handle.

Germans play decent straightforward attacking football for years, always enjoyed Bayern and BVB in the UCL, but league is usually boring asf since
Bayern is way too dominant. Had high hopes for Leipzig this year, but meh

I don't even feel sorry for BvB. A bunch of losers whom couldn't take advantage of Bayern's fuckup. Such an amazing atmosphere by their fans, almost entire world of football was on their side and they were playing at home against a team that had nothing to play for.

Yes, it's always difficult to play against a team whom has nothing to lose but hey, you have to be a hungry wolf in such situations. Don't give me these sad messages in Instagram or cry after the match like a lil bitch. There's a place to spit blood and get that prize otherwise fuck off. Farmers league though.

Bundesliga is good to watch if u like fluid attacking football. Its for sure better than La Liga or Serie A. But for me, I just cant watch it constantly, cause just like the Premier league, the defending is absolute dogshit. Most teams look like Inter at the start of the season, or even worse... also, Bayern winning every single year doesnt help.
