DMTF030 Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

Jan returns to the podcast after a break on baby duty to discuss the latest catastrophes from our beloved Old Lady. We try valiantly not to talk about losses to Hoffenheim, Union Berlin and a fizzy drink company together with the narrowest possible win against Dresden in the cup.  We do mention the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the wall coming down and remembering the dreadful night of the Kristalnacht pogrom of 1938.

Hertha Fans through Videos

Just in case our gentle lister is interested in seeing some Hertha fan action than isn’t always shown on TV coverage we’ve posted a few video clips for you take a look at.

DMTF-029. Pure Football – Pure Stadium

In this episode we dabble in some actual facts which is a massive departure from our normal joking, waffling and ranting.  We start off with Simon talking to himself about the game against Dusseldorf for a while.  ( He talks to himself a lot to be honest – it’s the only way he get’s the answers he wants).  The game went well and to give a feel of the mood after the game here’s a short clip showing the celebrations at the Ostkurve.

After about nine and a half minutes Simon twitting on we then move on the a section recorded earlier in the week about Blau-Weisses Stadion with Simon’s friend Inis.

Blau-Weisses Stadion is a Berlin fan based campaign group working with all parties to help bring about a successful new stadium project for Hertha. We learn about the aims of the campaign and how they are working towards their goals.

Naturally, by successful we mean an outcome that will work for us – the fans. If it works for us, it will work for Hertha as a whole. 

Hopefully you will find the interview and the background it provides interesting and give you further insight into the fan scene in Berlin.  Ha Ho He

Needless to say it is also available on iTunes and elsewhere. Take your pick.

DMTF028 – A streak of good fortune

In this episode the podcast is hosted by Simon together with Patrick and Cynth from Canada to represent our North American listener. We waffle on about two games starting with the home win against Paderborn and then away in Koln. Before the Paderborn game some fans cycled to the stadium in solidarity with climate change protests – our intrepid reporter recorded some of the ride for our listener to enjoy. The Olympiastadion itself was warmer than I remembered as a member of the crowd stripped off and ran out the pitch to cool off causing some people to no see one of the goals. An eventful weekend was had by all and nice to see the old lady coming back into form.

We also talk a little about the continuing saga of the new stadium for Hertha and some of the recent developments. Also we mention the “new” fan based campaign for the right kind of stadium – “Blau-Weisses Stadion”.

Anyhow, here’s the latest episode as of October 2019 so give it a go . . .

Needless to say it is also available on iTunes if you’re an Apple person!

DMTF032 – In the shitter

In the first episode of 2020, we are racking our brains for any positive talking points after the 0:4 shitshow of a game against Bayern. After traying for ages, we just let it go and hope for better times. As one does as a Hertha fan on MD 18.
