This week we talk to Schalke coach Jens Keller. Late last year, Keller was uddenly and surprisingly promoted from the Royal Blues' youth ranks to the top job.
He's been a member at Werder Bremen since 1972 and head coach there for the past 13 years. But now Thomas Schaaf is learning to do without his long-time collaborator at the club, Klaus Allofs.
Speaking of Leverkusen, we'll be talking to their right back Daniel Carvajal. He's originally from Madrid, but he has put the factory club from western Germany on course for a Champions League berth at the moment.
Congolese-German midfielder Cedric Makiadi is a familiar face in the Bundesliga. He began his professional career with Wolfsburg, but he truly found a footballing home in Freiburg.
Tunisian Karim Haggui from Hanover 96 isn't finding things easy at the moment. His team is going through a crisis and the signing of some new talent hasn't really stopped that.
He used to be the German national team's starting goalkeeper. Before there was Manuel Neuer, Rene Adler wore the number 1 for the Nationalelf.
There was a lot of fanfare when Gündogan left Nuremberg in 2011 to sign with Dortmund in order to replace departing star Nuri Sahin who had joined Real Madrid.
The 19 year old Schalke midfielder doesn't want to be seen as a young lad anymore. But what can he do when he isn't even 20 yet? "Be loud in training and the rest will work itself out.." Draxler says.
Few modern players have showed the same loyalty to their club as Christian Wetklo. The veteran goalkeeper has stuck with Mainz through the past 12 years, both in the first and second divisions.
Frankfurt with their 19 points and 19 goals in their first eight games have had the best start of a newly promoted squad in the history of the Bundesliga. Let's meet the man leading the charge, Coach Armin Veh.
He's been with Bremen since 2005 but he's only appeared 25 times in the Bundesliga. For years, Sebastian Mielitz played second fiddle to Tim Wiese.
8 years ago he was playing against Borussia Freialdenhoven in the fourth division: and now he is captain of Fortuna Düsseldorf: Andreas “Lumpi” Lambertz.
The Bundesliga has broken yet another record: Bayern Munich have paid 40 million euros for a new signing. Never in the history of the league has a club spent so much on one player.
Even growing up in Warsaw, Robert Lewandowski was a Dortmund fan. He was the top scorer in Poland's third division, before moving up to become the top scorer in the second division the next season.
