they say don't believe the hype but i do mean is numero uno buyer off to a rocky start and we witness history being made with union berlin making their bundesliga debut. new beginnings union berlin had a tall order in their 1st ever but as they can match facing rb lives in a champions league qualified side was quite the litmus test and by her don't mean 2 favorites to win the title we saw violent struggle and don't mean tommy for long stretches last season but we all know how that ended will this year be any different. welcome to the put as they go on d w i'm chris harrington joining me in studio for the breakdown of match day one are 2 members of our very own but it's
5:03 am
a good team alan hoagland welcome alan to the show thank you crass match day one let's do it hi and we have our very own max merrill max are you ready to be only attack ready to give the people what they want press all right but 1st let's take our viewers to our backyard. lots of emotions surrounded you know in berlin's but as they could debut the old school football club has an unwavering fan base and they are promotion the old school way supporters of the promoted side players have been silent for the 1st 15 minutes of the match in protest of their opponents rb life's a aside basically created overnight with corporate money ever heard of red bull so there was that an r.v. life that had a debutante as well and you had not was my now running with the bulls as head coach his story versus history few. who knew in berlin fans have been waiting for this moment for decades and the emotion showed finally in the big time those who didn't
5:04 am
live to see the day were also there in spirit. the after the 1st of i is a very different ground to what i'll be like to get used to in the bunkers later but the negative reception for the club backed by an energy drinks firm was very familiar you know. who knew and players were looking to hit the ground running and show the togetherness which helped win them promotion. the game had a muted start on 15 minutes the supporters rode into life but just as they did like 6 myself house them struck. here now guzman's 1st one is a good goal celebration is like the boss who knew him gave the fullback far too much room but it was still a fine finish. a crack of a marcel submits a double the lead on 31 minutes if you knew and didn't know how tough the blunders they get would be they knew now. whom coach official bravely put his glasses back
5:05 am
on but it soon got worse as you move than a bus through to make it 3 nil just before half time. because if an cuckoo graph to fall off after the break. you knew my heart broken at the end it will be a tough season for the. lynas the coach club's supporters will keep on singing. so you know in berlin their 1st game against the club could not be any more different to them red bull backed rb live seek met let's start with you you know what makes this newly promoted side you know in berlin so special time you go across i mean the bundesliga prize itself on foreign culture and found involvement and embodies that here's a prime example back in 2008 the kastrup club needed a new stadium to comply with the vision regulations $2300.00 fans volunteers for an incredible 13 months and that was the end result we saw i mean so they're
5:06 am
investing yeah and it's a club that has anti establishment in their blood very vocal protest club even in the former east german republic and the philosophy of defiance we saw that about protests won't change in the talk to. stay on this protest topic do you think fans should just get over it i mean it's where the game is going on right so much breathless commentary is devoted to this crass right let me play the disney villain here for a minute yes corporate money may darby's rapid rise possible but ok they follow the letter the letter of the laws but not the spirit but the game today is all about money as i see some hypocrisy here you know when 1st of all they don't spend nearly as much as clubs like byron munich not to mention english and spanish clubs and 2nd all big clubs nowadays have rich corporate sponsors you know alianza anyone so let's not forget too they have a huge devoted fan base in leipzig now and the city has been helped out
5:07 am
tremendously financially by having this club there those people have no problem with the way they do business yeah ok it was quite that you know the match up with the promoters side in the season rb live see now. at that performance do you think you and your own can survive you know their 1st season in the top flight makes well alan get away with his coaches i mean you and i think we'll stay up they won't be playing leipsic every week that's for sure and off of the match we can take a look at after losing 4 mil the fans was still in full voice they all say i'm fired up this team for the next match day and this is going to be key i think for them staying up they showed steel in the playoff series against brought them here into the league and i think even more teams this year will be in the relegation mix because a lot of teams have failed to better this squad now let's talk about the rb life exciting things you did not go as my taken over now do you see them being
5:08 am
a contender for years to come and maybe waited for years to come probably not this year but they are bringing up so many promising young talents through their exceptional youth program and he's just the man to develop those young talents so i think they have a bright future ahead of them and good news for their legions of devoted fans max. there's more action to get to which brings us to frankfurt where the eagles fresh off of qualified for the europa league hosted hoffenheim for their opener both of these clubs last major pieces during the transfer window often have even lost their coach formalized frankfurt are flying high they'll play in europe opponents hoffenheim however have already showed size of decline after struggling to get past a 3rd division club in the german cup oftentimes new coach outfit should have being womanly welcomed by his frankfurt counterpart. but not with the hospitality ended. keeping all of obama was still sorting out his defense when the ball was in the net
5:09 am
after only 36 seconds found favorite martin him to exits in frankfurt season off to a picture perfect stunt. as smooth move with a corner and hoffenheim acute completely off guard. after that the visit has had more position but they couldn't do much with it except the 2 off cycles. frank plants are happy about a successful start to the campaign while hoffenheim they clearly have some work to do. in frankfurt with 3 points to begin their campaign now max you seem to be happy don't afraid for it is the eagles here they lost a lot of talent out there but you don't see them stripping the same type of success as last season no i mean i think you ought to be realistic it's a bit of a reset after look at yo bitch and sebastian left put it bringing in 100000000 euros and they haven't really spent
5:10 am
a lot of it they've kept that coach i think what they're going to try and do his keep the system and build again and just try and build from a base but i'm a bit disappointed that they haven't brought in much firepower i don't know whether goals are going to come from wright you have a good point now their opponents often time lost a lot of talent in the window well they struggle yeah i think they're definitely going to struggle it almost seemed like they were focusing on stockpiling cash and not spending any and then of course the biggest departure in my opinion was the leonardo's man as their coach you know he's been replaced by his former assistant if it's kreuger it doesn't strike me as the move of a club with big ambitions right now yeah as your good point now speaking of ambitions and moves let's look at this season's title race a lot of activity in the transfer market let's go to the business so far by the defending champions munich do you think that they've done enough to retain their title definitely no i think it's pretty poor i mean the transfer market is still open for a little bit but who missed has said we are done and i think that's not good enough
5:11 am
i mean i'd give it a grade c. it best you look at the defenders they brought an early on that's a good good hole for them but then since then firepower not really that mean they've missed a key target in leroy's sunday albeit with an injury complicating things no replacements. for robert lewandowski and the long term replacement replacement for robin and rebury there's a reason by and of only loaned a total of 9 players in their entire club history it's week moves short termism and only who knows who probably will be leaving off for the season what's his legacy then you're right you know that remains to be seen now there's been a lot of false news out there in terms of targets for buying but we do know could tito is you know one player they just side rumored to be in munich getting his medical if you think that's a good move i think it's a hugely good move i mean it's exactly what they needed now they haven't quite gone out and signed another striker to be a tandem with robert live in it which i think that's something they need to do you
5:12 am
know they've had problems scoring goals they could score goals against liverpool in the champions league last year but does give them fire power and let's not forget parasites you know he stud i mean that the croatians still has a lot left in the tank yeah age is a concern for many out there of course he's approaching the twilight of his career but i think you still get a few more good years in him. on defense i think i just was too expensive but together with that that's a heck of a combination right now speaking of last season's runners up do i mean they were pretty smart what they've done do you think they've done enough to actually hold on to the top of the table this season i think it's been shrewd i mean they cleared out the deadwood ugly last no one they really wanted to keep side from producing and look at all the strength they brought an established bundesliga players players with pedigree homo's being key for me last season they collapsed i think the lack of experience now he was there the last time they won the title in 2012 and that
5:13 am
core intact and really built on that i think is a great transfer window you showed his effect and this is going to go as well so who wins it is the enemy what do you think do you think that it will be a head to head race like we saw last season i mean it was only a marginal 2 points they gave the title yeah look i mean the question is i would ask is you know how many times do you have to be bitten before you say damn that dog bites you know it's been enough because that's what do they when it's in their d.n.a. you know they're the reigning bonus they get champ and they're still the team to beat until they're knocked off their perch you know that's why the bookies still have them as clear favorites and let's not forget in spite of his saying it's over there are still 2 more weeks in the transfer window they could surprise us yeah i think that they have something in the works and in terms of the right side they are thinking maybe a winter transfer window depend upon how the surgery goes and so on i think it's too little too light dortmund have beaten him to the chase i think for me that the clear favorite there's hardly any weakness in the team quality and depth in every
5:14 am
position for me they're going win the title this season so it looks like we just have what 33 more match days to go to see if the prophecy comes true from both of you guys well that's full time for us i'd like to thank our guests allen hoagland as well as max merrill. be sure to tune in next match day until then. i'll be the. s.o.s. europe europe is in crisis. if it still has a future it will meet champions young champions. are going. to work the country. they are
5:15 am
trying to. do they stand a chance. and they say security and i deal. with the market i need to stand up for european values and contribute to something important that she of. the future of europe starts september 2nd on d w. a burke is a lizard man we're being poisoned by can trade is that aircraft leave behind and german chancellor angela merkel is hitlist secret daughter social media is full of conspiracy theories like these and many videos supporting them figure prominently on the net why is that and how does social media help to promote conspiracy theories about topic this time.
