Uli Hess in Germany

On Sunday, the Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster, asked me to explain why an in-form Cologne FC, with a red-hot Lukas Podolski, was hammered by a Dortmund team that had embarrassed itself and the Bundesliga on the European stage just a few days earlier. The reporter probably expected me to hem and haw and produce one of my patented long-winded incoherent ramblings. But as a matter of fact, that one was quite easy. Cologne were soundly beaten, ran my profound expert analysis, because they are always rubbish in Dortmund.
