FMEL? I know there was the takeover, but I don't believe they gave you that much. If not FMEL, FMRTE?
He's a billionaire, and I already had lots of money before, so no
Dortmund announce new kits
Borussia Dortmund manager John Barnes has announced a kit sponsorship with Justice96 Football kits
© The new kit makers are Puma and kit sponsor is PC game Football Manager 2013
which John Barnes admitted he plays a lot
Sure you'll win lots in those kits.
Bloody hell, teams will forfeit when having to play Dortmund at their home ground. The kits look immense!
We have dropped form a lot this month, hoping I can improve next month.
PotM: Player of the Month is Marc-Andre ter Stegen, consistent performances throughout a tough month.
Nice, could you post a pic of your starting XI?
Great win over Koln, you're doing pretty well so far
Couple of bad results but I doubt they will mess up your season overall.
Quality mate! Sensational!!!!
Not bad mate, next year you'll win.
After coming off the back of a superb 5-0 win against Borussia Monchengladbach, John Barnes has retired from football management due to personal reasons. Some BVB fans say he is up there with Jurgen Klopp who brought the club out of the financial state the club was in and made them into a European superforce over 4 years. It was Klopp's sacking that led to Barnes' appointment. Barnes was first appointed by Everton in 2012 when David Moyes left his 11 year reign at the club. His appointment led to disappointment and many fans were disgusted with then-chairman Bill Kenwright's decision and Barnes got some decent results and then came his big break. Dortmund were 9th in the Bundesliga with 22 games played and needed a hero to get them into the Champions League spots, sure enough Klopp got the axe and Barnes applied for the job. Many were unsure but it turned out to be one of Dortmund's greatest decisions of all-time. By the end of the 2012-13 season Barnes had turned it around in 12 games and edged it into 4th spot and qualified for the Champions League. Although Der BVB didn't get very far in the Champions League, they won the Bundesliga title that season. 2015 was Barnes' best year, winning 5 trophies altogether, the German Super Cup (which he also won in 2014), the German Cup, the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup Championship and most notably, Dortmund's first ever Champions League title with a very entertaining 4-3 win over Real Madrid with the last 2 goals coming in the last 5 minutes from Romelu Lukaku and Neymar.
Excellent signings and sad to see Barnes go ;/
