Dortmund Blues

It was a night of outstanding drama, fully reaffirming all the eulogies about German football, and when it was all done Bayern Munich had won their fifth European Cup and we were reminded what a brutal business football can be when it comes to making losers of heroes.

For everything wonderful that had occurred on the pitch, some of the lingering memories came afterwards as Bayern’s victorious players soaked in the euphoria of Arjen Robben’s late, decisive goal and, simultaneously, the players from Die Schwarzgelben were on the floor, many in tears, with Jürgen Klopp watching from the side, standing still for possibly the first time on the night. His players had given everything, as they have throughout the competition. They had played with drive and ambition, utterly devoted to the idea of returning this trophy to Westphalia, and what a terrible pity it would be if a side with this talent are to be broken up.
