Apologies peeps, for we're a little tardy to the party with this one. This post was scheduled to auto-publish yesterday morning but that was before the system gremlins got hold of it.
Anyway, as you may well have seen, Dortmund lost 3-0 to relegation-threatened Hamburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with Hakan Calhanoglu completing the scoring in the 91st minute with an absolute monster of a free-kick from bloody miles out.

Hamburg midfielderHakan Calhanoglu, who is said to have been a recent transfer target for both Arsenal and Liverpool, scored an absolutely blinding free-kick against German giants Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, with the effort being hailed as goal-of-the-season so far.
Hamburg coach Bert van Marwijk just barely escaped with his job last weekend after the 3-0 defeat to Hertha. This weekend the axe finally came down and after 143 of the longest days of his life the former Dutch national team coach was paid off.
The decision was taken shortly after Hamburg lost their relegation six pointer at bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig, 4-2.
Last Wednesday, about 400 Hamburg fans march to the club's training ground as a demonstration of support for the beleaguered squad who had lost five games in a row, a run that saw the club descend to second from bottom of the Bundesliga. Hamburg have never been relegated from the first division and they were founder members when the league was formed in 1963.
This week's Top 5 Bundesliga goals feature the likes of Bayern Munich, Hamburg, and more. Bayern Munich had to fight back from a goal down to secure all three points and two of their goals made it into the top five. Newly promoted Hertha Berlin make the list with an excellent header flicked on by Adrian Ramos.
Hamburg have unveiled their away shirt for the 2013-14 season.
Designed by adidas, the beautifully designed navy blue shirt with sky blue trim is a clean looking design that features the classic iconic Hamburger SV club crest. While I'd prefer to see Rafael van der Vaart wearing a Premier League club jersey, the Dutch attacking midfielder seems at home in his Hamburg away shirt.
"With his open nature, Sonny is the face of HSV and our organisation," admits Hamburg Chairman Carl E. Jarchow, back in 2012. Commercially, and on the park, the South Korean international was the â€˜Poster Boy' of the club and commanded promising opinions of his playing qualities, and his reputation.
Andre Schurrle becomes Mourinho's first signing as Chelsea manager - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Jose Mourinho has completed his first signing of his second spell at Chelsea with the capture ofBayer Leverkusen's highly rated young attacking midfielder,Andre Schurrle for a reported transfer fee of Â£18 million.
German football didn't turn professional until the mid-sixties, but by that time the (West Germany) national team had already won the World Cup, and one of their clubs had reached the final of the European Champions Cup.
That club was Eintracht Frankfurt, whose appearance is etched in the memory of a generation of British football fans.
Match in a sentence Jonathan Schmid's second half goal was enough to see Freiburg sneak past Hamburg and move into fifth place at the Imtech Arena. Analysis Thorsten Frink's men played in a 4-4-2 with Arjtoms Rudnevs and Son Heung-Min leading the line. Dennis Aogo and Per Ciljan Skjelbred played on the wings, while Tolgay [.
After being well and truly blitzed by runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday, Hamburg have done the decent thing and decided to apologise by plying their fans with the gift of chargrilled meat.
That's right, the club have invited all their fans to a complimentary barbecue at their training HQ later in the month by way of apology for their dire, record-equalingly bad performance at the weekend (Hamburg's 9-2 defeatequaledthe biggest ever Bundesliga defeat on record, with Bayern tying their own record which apparently dates back to a game against 1860 Munich during the 1963/64 season).
German outfit Hamburg are reportedly interested in current Everton striker Nikica Jelavic according to the Daily Mail, as new Everton gaffer Roberto Martinez prefers to play newly signedAroune Kone from Wigan over the 27-year-old Jelavic.
Jelavic, who joined the club in the January of 2012, could be on his way out after Martinez reportedly prefers to play the Ivorian striker over the Croatian international, and Hamburg could reportedly look to make aÂ£6 million bid for the forward, according to the Daily Mail.

Djourou gives a hint he wants to leave Arsenal permanently! by Ash Johan Djourou really has become a lost name at Arsenal and although he may not be currently with the club, I still believe he has the ability to remain with the Gunners for a few more years at least. Djourou is currently out [...]
Most Arsenal fans may not have heard of him, and he is not the striker that many of us feel is the priority for the January transfer window, but the young Hamburg player Hakan Calhanoglu could be swapping the German Bundesliga for the Premier League and Arsenal, according to his agent. The 19-year old attacking [.
Arsenal's Johan Djourou looks pretty much certain to secure a move away from the Emirates this summer with a number of clubs lining up for the Swiss International's signature, but whether he will once again be leaving on loan or if in fact it will be a permanent deal this time around is yet to be seen.
Johan Djourou seems odds on this summer to leave Arsenal with clubs in Germany, France and Spain all keen to secure the players services for next season. The most interest comes from Germany, with both Hannover 96 and Hamburger SV both expressing an interest in Djourou, whilst some Arsenal fans seem to think that perhaps Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler will be involved in any potential deal.
I don't know how many Arsenal fans agree with me, but I feel a little bit sorry for Johan Djourou. After joining the Gunners as a promising 15-year old in 2002, his career has never really managed to take off as he would have liked. He was not happy being the fourth choice centre back, so Arsene Wenger finally relented last season and let him go on loan to Hannover in the Bundesliga.
Navas, Dragovic and Son is not a removal company by the way, it is three different football players who have been linked with a possible summer transfer switch to Arsenal. Arsene Wenger and the club will have a good idea of the players they want to sign this summer, but a lot could still depend on where we finish in the table.
Wojciech Szczesny may have the next four games of the Premier League to prove himself once again at Arsenal but, even if he produces four faultless displays, it is still likely that Arsene Wenger will bring in a new keeper in the summer. This season has proved that the Polish international needs to be pushed for his place to keep him on his toes.
Der Hamburger SV hat trotz seiner sportliche Probleme immer noch treue Fans, die sogar Ihre Musikkarriere unter Ihr Fandasein stellen. Einer davon ist der ist Elvis, der jetzt wieder mit neuen (HSV-) Songs und einem neuen, fettem Album am Start ist. Wenn der HSV diese Saison also doch verkackt, dann.

Players of Hamburger SV have offered their fans hamburgers and more after next Sunday's home game with Fortuna DÃ¼sseldorf as an apology to the supporters who witnessed their abysmal showing in a 9-2 thrashing at Bayern Munich on Saturday. Thorsten Fink usually gives his players a rest on Sunday but not this time.
Die HipHop Gruppe Fettes Brot liefert mal wieder einen schönen Song ab und so ganz nebenbei, es ist ein Fussballsong. Ihr Song "Fussballgott" handelt von Fussball, Schiffen und einem Grill. Gefällt mir und wird deshalb auch öfters mal den Weg in meinen Walkman finden.
