What's the story with Union anyways?

That City is crying out to be represented by an elite tier football club. Hertha were ran badly but Union stepped up a level since last season.

Can't be more hipster than a) being a Berlin football club and b) being the 2nd team of the city and becoming the best, can you. Would be like the 2nd best team in Barcelona CE Europa becoming the top club in the city.

Don't worry, they will still walk the league, but "the best team in the world" sitting in 3rd so far isn't exactly impressive.

Urs Fischer, the coach of Union Berlin, manages to revive the career of players that were somehow forgotten or losers somewhere else.

The club somehow is "different" - so I do not like everything that is around it. But they have fans who e.g. were spending a lot time in rebuilding the stadium. That would not have worked without that voluntarily help. There Xmas singing when they open the stadium some days prior to Xmas to sing Xmas carols in a full stadium is already legendary and copied by other clubs.

Union Berlin and Freiburg somehow show it to the traditional clubs that you can be even successful on a small budget - not only last season. Even if playing in Europa and in the Bundesliga probably - you never know - will be a hard game for them. Freiburg is not just leading the bundesliga table right now but with their U23 team in 3rd league are 2nd.

Bayern won the Bundesliga 10 times and only seldom got good results against Gladbach or Union Berlin. Union Berlin very seldom loses points at home - that games are always difficult - with or without Lewy.

High pressing systems take a toll on players. Don't expect a player to last 15 years like Messi and CR7 did while also helping out defensively in modern football setups.

Shelf life of a Pep and Klopp attacker is 5-7 years.

Depends on the player. Lewandowski played under Pep Klopp and Flick for years. 3 of the highest pressing coaches and still shows no signs of slowing down at 34....
