DMTF015 – The Sound of Silence

In our newest episode, we have a look at the away game in Dortmund (neat), the away game in the cup in Darmstadt (also neat), the home game against Raba in an unusually quiet Olympiastadion (not very neat) and we also have to talk about the reactions to the flares and violence in Dortmund (not at all neat), the club’s reaction (also not so neat) and the repercussions of the incident, the support boycott and the conflict between the fans and Hertha BSC (nothing neat whatsoever). We try to end on a few positives and will be back after the next home game against Hoffenheim.

Flagless stadium vs. Raba
