FRD Book Club: Building the Yellow Wall, Uli Hesse

Luke Moore, Kate Mason and Andy Brassell return for another episode of FRD’s Book Club, this time discussing the definitive historical account of one of world football’s most recognisable clubs: it’s Uli Hesse’s Building the Yellow Wall - The Incredible Rise and Cult Appeal of Borussia Dortmund. 


Many modern football fans will feel a connection to the German side due to its recent continental successes and fevered match day atmosphere. But, in looking at the club’s history more thoroughly, Hesse’s love letter to his boyhood club presents a more varied backstory. We discuss how Dortmund are placed in the wider context of German football, the fans’ relationship with Jürgen Klopp, and just how close this Bundesliga giant has come to falling away altogether.
