Bundesliga coverage well worth watching
The hook line “How Good Is It?” sums up for me the Bundesliga action now on OneHD. I realise that on Fox Sports, Setanta and ESPN, there is a plethora of football available for live viewing or as highlight packages.
SBS also do a sterling job showing a number of games, despite having one hand tied behind their back.
However, I have to congratulate Ten for procuring rights to the German Bundesliga and showing it on OneHD. Watching the highlights package the other night confirmed that my nostalgic memory from the 70s and 80s has not failed me – great crowds and atmosphere, tight matches, great goals and some pieces of intricate skill, even though the world famous players have now deserted for more lucrative shores elsewhere.
The Bundesliga is a superb league not only for the on-field action, but from an administration point of view.
I believe it is a benchmark for others.
I can only hope now that my boyhood favourites (due to the excellence of their Subbuteo team), Borussia Monchengladbach, can climb back up to the upper echelons of German football.
