History Lesson

George Santayana once said "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to think that Chelsea and Hoffenheim have been good sides for a long period of time." Or something pretty close to that. Anyhow, Borussia Mönchengladbach have put up a video on their English language site that details some the club's storied past. Definitely worth a look.

Michael Bradley and his team are just getting back to training for the second half of the Bundesliga season, and though the first half didn't go to plan, there's still a long way to go. 'Gladbach have added to their team as well, signing four players - Brazilian defender Dante (Standard Liege), goalkeeper Logan Bailly (KRC Genk), Paul Stalteri (Tottenham Hotspur), and former captain of the Czech Republic, Tomas Galasek (Banik Ostrava).

There are lots of connections to the MNT in that group - Dante played with Gooch at Standard Liege, Stalteri was on loan at Fulham last year during the club's remarkable battle against relegation last season, and Galasek was the captain when the Czech Republic face the U.S. in the 2006 FIFA World Cup...
