8:33 pm
the training ground but that was the 1st time we really tried it and it's good to see. a cheeky variation on a corner the hosts showing little sign of being intimidated by reputations but reputation is and own merits and they've already shown this season they can turn things around with all that quality at their disposal. back up. did not last very long. to take. over hasty in the 2nd time oftentimes the conspiracy from the zombies who having full blood and couldn't press on but did. shut. up shut the fuck up. bought. so people like.

8:36 pm
season that's now the newly promoted known berlin from the east and heritage in the west both represent berlin in the bundesliga something you can't say for anywhere else in germany. is this just season for linda finally becomes a football city. or has it always been one there is constantly a game on got the most teams playing at every level in the country it's not like people don't love soccer here but there are reasons it's not seen as a football city let's start with those. really has a historical feature that sets it apart from just about every city in the world even today all this is played out in the shadow of the berlin wall. not just the dark rooms that make berlin special few places on earth have witnessed such a tumultuous past as the city and its this history that continues to define.
8:37 pm
the city was smack in the center of the cold war germany was split between east and west while the capital was divided as well roughly 40 years of division shape today's football landscape. passion for football is built on rivalries duking it out with even neighbors not easy to do when there's literally a wall cutting your city and have. your own fan and writer in go knows all about this. cup in the west we're going to watch the clock in the east so disappointed each other so it was like a friendship. in east and west they drank different beers they even had different lights at their crosswalks no surprise they had vastly different football clubs. east and west germany had separate leagues meaning many of berlin's biggest clubs like heritage and you know and have rarely played each other west berlin was surrounded by use germany cut off from regional competition. isolation meant most teams couldn't push each other or develop lasting right. it's. when the wall came
8:38 pm
down and stop wished clubs in the west of germany had the cash to poach players from the eastern sides and berlin's been a relatively poor city until recently. and actually. even you know david lean is going to head to fan for decades it's not me it's a wish to play it. she's proud of how much her club has gotten out of a limited budget. if you. rich western clubs have dominated since the fall of the wall 30 years back former east german clubs are a rarity in the upper leagues which means her to enter in your own don't have much competition nearby in the top tier not easy to be a football city with empty coffers and limited local competition but constant
8:39 pm
change is built into berlin's d.n.a. the city's recent growth means fewer than half of berlin residents were born here newcomers arrive with established footballing loyalties and it's often easier to find bars for teams from other cities than it is from hair to arriving from football not to london over a year ago theo represents a new wave of soccer fans and for lim. it is definitely see that but it's not all bad. people are the pretty it's a lot more about the external factors so details when the match is over and where the stadium is and how much tickets cost where is here you really really do feel like the fans come to the uk there are plenty of reasons berlin could soon become a football city. think they're treating for both of the city's top clubs on paper character the biggest club in the city should be a footballing power in their own. west berlin's topside were founded before the
8:40 pm
turn of the century have plenty of history and are in a regional bundesliga member to draw an average of 49000 fans a game more than chelsea you day in p.s.g. unfortunately big crowds in a boisterous also aren't enough to guarantee a good atmosphere at that massive olympic stadium which is still half empty with 40000 people on it. it's heritage they just haven't captured the city's imagination salomon kalou is probably heritage most recognizable player still he told us his favorite part of living in berlin is the peace and quiet. you go outside the city to mark farms i think the big difference. i am not sure if that streams football city characters ads from last season actually had the motto of in berlin you can be anything even a hair to fan inspiring. despite their tradition and fan culture her to have a reputation for being
8:41 pm
a bit soulless it doesn't help that they're so middle of the road on the field just because then fairy covers berlin's lower league football for bloody hell magazine. i got nothing. against head but they had to find them very boring because what some find boring means authenticity to longtime fans is the whole teenager she believes believes it's just not you know i have warned you i found my mind before. that might change her to clearly have grander designs and investor pumped 125000000 euros into the club this offseason leading to some exciting new signings including breaking their transfer record and dodi luca bucky 0 they've also got a new coach and high expectations which they think could transform the city's soccer scene. we need some some some success too to build a big. football community as we're as we can see it and bought into.
8:42 pm
hair to claim to represent the whole city on having strayed from their local eastern alliance. on your own stand for the past of berlin soccer they have a storied history presenting themselves as an alternative to the state police back to normal for a win in the d.d.r. era and they all have an intractable relationship to their neighborhood of corruption it plus the fans have literally given up blood sweat and tears for their job. it's not like 20089 that was like the last rebuilding off the stadium where a lot of more than like 2000 fans actually took part in tara lee yeah. just 10 actions have made global headlines perpetuating an oft oversimplified myth but now many cans roll their eyes when they hear the phrase cold club. yes i'm tired of that really. improved play and the legendary status of their fan culture has caused some growing pains. this family feeling was speeding.
8:43 pm
up challenge at the moment and in the past 3 years the stadium was almost every gay . soloists we have 30000 members you know we have like i think 5 years ago we had the wrong 12 followers and. in typical fashion when you didn't raise ticket prices for their 1st ever promotion to the bundeswehr it will be a tough slog at the top but selling out the stadium won't be a problem on your own inherit some may have had across well friendship in the old days and this is only their 3rd ever season in the same league still promotion could reset things. you don't inherit so far and in fact be fierce rivals but if to no one can manage to stay up long enough for the cue props to develop a history of playing against one another this therapy might just be what it takes to weeknight the soccer scene in this. book does berlin really need hair to anyone young to succeed to become a football city or has it been one all along. what's
8:44 pm
a football city it's not when you look only like it to see the success like in the in professional football when you look at the culture of culture is a very. powerful culture and but then we have like voted for on the football club has just about as many soccer teams as generous can't walk more than 5 minutes about stumbling on a charming historic around the clubs dotting the city have proud histories and ties to their local community is so let's run through a dense and diverse footballing landscape a little known to those outside of the german capital. that if founded in berlin in 1908 is the country's oldest active club ethnic clubs like to keep. its community centers for immigrant or minority groups or teams where we're even on the verge of promotion to the 2nd division in the ninety's but were falsely penalized for incorrectly registering
8:45 pm
a foreign player i guess that's just multicultural berlin for your novels very base just outside of berlin playing the same ground as women's powerhouse to being a part stem. sport politically engaged ultracet. former brandis league aside tennis or take a day of a different style support equally progressive identity because i might be in the movie. i can find items of crimes forgotten that. you can see the condition me. what i see their history in west berlin and the regional leagues in the ninety's means that take the scene both in your own and territory as rivals as good t.v. it helped us we were inside and struck everybody take metallica but when you're one isn't your dog is the movie. our program it's what i'm trying to find out which will print going off on how to friends of mine and also which not all berlin
8:46 pm
football history is glorious just look at his money overall in. his money have the crowd distinction of the pinnace league as the worst ever record and it's a step if held onto since the 1956. 10 time d.d.r. champs formerly favored by the east german secret police today they play in the 4th division but are still probably union's biggest rivals known 10 ingo won't even say their names no i'm not going to say the name of god and. i might have no this to fair amount of bald heads heading into the stadium and i wish i could tell you that there was analyse shell break in east berlin but unfortunately you know has a reputation of being filled with right wing fans so in the off chance they can smell my ethnic background i think it's time we get out of here. for every cool team playing at the local or regional level berlin has about 15 non-league side it's nonstop football here in berlin and all of these lower division clubs have
8:47 pm
their own identities and stories to tell. there's a sizeable gap between the smaller clubs and character in your own at. this whole striving to be the biggest team it's a bit of a plane you know because once you get to that level the team. the scene is fantastic but it seems like a waste with all these awesome teams whiling away in the 4th 5th and 6th divisions . is nothing if not constantly changing soccer here is no different you might expect more from the german city with 4000000 residents but the line is buzzing about having 2 teams in the bundesliga for the 1st time in over 40 years. it will be of course a lot of pressure on those in the city like who will sit between. them and then you . know plenty of the city's football fans might not even be watching the derby. but if you're living in berlin and you're watching just these 2 clubs in your own head
8:48 pm
you're missing out on so much football and there is drama that you're liable to get laughed at for suggesting berlin is a soccer city it's still a far cry from london or madrid but things finally seem set to change at the top thanks when you own and heritage and as we have seen the basis is there even more once you scratch the surface. did you know the kick off is now when you. go out of mexico. to read all the while you can really feel how the sound running i'm going to say no to stop me. and. i'm chris here in.
8:49 pm
florida because it's going to blow. job is a football on you. i missing you. back to the buzz later let's take a closer look at the team at the hour like saying they're the only club who have yet to drop any points this season. it's been a perfect start to the season for leipsic. 3 wins 9 points top of the table not what the club can match that i think. there's a team of the hours setting the pace in the bundesliga and it's lovely thanks to that top troll strike out. on fire goal gravity more than up with 5 goals in 3

8:52 pm
the best news of the day it was the team although not who got on the scoresheet again had penned a new contract through 2023. i. think i might see. some very important player for us that's great news i'm happy i'm happy for him my head for the club i'm happy for the manager union and i hope he can do it like today on the next and it seems he could do it even better he's 3 goals at gladbach 5 like to take to the top of the table like it's 9 points from wins against strong teams like trying 1st in glove. it's good preparation for the ball and getting after might. like to take on the record champions at home next weekend at the top of the table with a strike in blistering form and

club's internal hierarchy thanks to his early adaptability. for to give it the food joining gone high just considered myself a central midfielder in a suit realize that it was a young player looking for game time and can be fussy and play wherever you needed . effectively accelerating his own career path to me he took the initial step up from 2nd tier football in 2015 then 20 year old was playing for upwardly mobile on the lights when brian came calling. i remember it well i was watching t.v. with my housemates use of polson when my agent right moment 1st i couldn't believe bowen wanted to play from but as we could see. from there it was fast forward all the way under this coach what a yellow remolded the young prospect into a central defender just a metre 76 tall but he's much intelligence more than made up for the relatively

slight frame. of mind perceived weaknesses always used to be physical ones of be hearing i was too weak to slow too small. you showed me. a lot of things i just never known about it's a lot of small details on positional steps or make it so you're always playing with a different system or a different line of under the system use them and yeah those were very exciting times. in the meantime kimmie he's now a leader and a 4 time german champion at $24.00 his success story is very much a family affair. follows only doing that without my parents' support but still be kicking a ball about in my home village here in this part of our new getting on in the game back then involves an awful lot of driving my dad took me everywhere i'm grateful for that to this day figure must have been this final said dunk but. he knows where he's from what he aims to finish up once again and that the road to the next title
