Some links to start the season



As stated before, the purpose of this blog is to approach the Bundesliga from a position of almost complete ignorance. While this may change over time, I will never shy away from encouraging readers to look elsewhere on the web for Bundesliga news and analysis. Consider the Bundesbag as a companion piece. A bit of weekly fun and nothing more.

To that end, allow me to submit some useful pre-season nonsense from professional writers who know a damn site more than I do

Eurosport season preview:

and their list of transfers by club

Uli Hesse Lichtenburger on why you should watch the Bundesliga:

The excellent Raphael Honigsteinhttp://blogs.guardian.co.uk/sport/2007/08/10/believe_the_hype_the_bundeslig.html
Finally, the season kicks off tomorrow with champions Stuttgart against runners up Schalke. It should be a tasty encounter. I predict Stuttgart will open a can of traumatic memories on the giants of the Ruhr. If you have Setanta you can watch it live. Highlights of the rest of the weekends action will be on early next week on the same channel. I'll be back with a full round up then.

That's it. Enjoy.
