About us

Why Miasanrot?

It was March 25th 2014 in Berlin, the day that brought Bayern the earliest championship in league history – fueled by beer and soda, an idea was born. We are united by our passion for Bayern and the desire for a calm, objective analysis that goes far beyond the typical sensationalist stories and the black-and-white thinking. That was our motivation to start this blog.

After our blogs Miasanrot and Der Bayern Blog had been developed simultaneously from 2012 on, we held many talks and Skype calls, coming to the conclusion that our only option is to cooperate from 2014-15 on.

Since then, we’ve tried to give our readers a complete overview on everything Bayern-related with match reports, opponent previews, tactical analyses, podcasts and regular round-ups about the first team, reserves and the women’s team.

We are Bayern fans. Naturally, everything written on this website is somewhat biased. That’s why it’s a blog on Bayern. Nevertheless, we want to analyze matches, examine tactical developments, process background stories on a journalistic level and try out new formats.
This blog needs you – your comments, ideas, links, criticism and much more. Every advice, every suggestion of a topic matters. That’s what we will count on in the future.

Team


Jan

Lives in beautiful Munich for several years now. Loves to stand in the famous Südkurve instead of sitting in the gallery. Follows the youth teams and likes to report from the HGK (Hermann Gerland Kampfbahn).

Christopher

Native Franconian and now living in Berlin by choice. As a big FIFA and Football Manager gamer he always has an eye on the squad and the development of the youth players.

Felix

Soon-to-be sports journalist and student at Munich university LMU. Originally from Austria and therefore by law fan of David Alaba. Interested in all topics about FC Bayern - on and off the pitch. Visiting the Südkurve as often as possible.

Steffen

Has a Bachelor degree in sports journalism, Bayern fan since the days of Bruno Labbadia (the striker) and Erich Ribbeck (the coach). Member of the Berlin miasanrot-Office.

Jolle

Originating from Potsdam, tolerated in Munich, having used up her youth in Berlin, now fancying various sports for the elderly. Used to despise football and FC Bayern fans alike (boring sport, opportunistic clowns who applause success). Was punished for this type of blasphemy with an even more intense addiction to the sport and the Reds. Likes to dish it out, but not take it.

Tobi

Bayern fan since childhood, grew up with Kahn and Hitzfeld. Still waiting for the perfect match, still failing to understand Guardiola's system. Martin Demichelis and Danijel Pranjic are underrated.

Martin

Follows FC Bayern and the Bayern Amateurs all over Bavaria, Germany and Europe. Has a weakness for the FCB Junior Team. Also on Twitter.

Dennis

Born behind the Iron Curtain. After he started school in Bavaria and there got infected with the FCB virus, he ended up living in Berlin. Had his big fan-coming-out relatively late under van Gaal, driven by his Twitter bubble and a good friend. Currently ball boy at miasanrot and #contentschleuder on Twitter. Still doesn't understand Juego De Posicion.

Justin

Grew up with the generation Kahn and the legendary 2001 team. Doesn't define success based on results. Loves triangles, attacking, structured possession football and Joshua Kimmich. Keeps the Brandenburg flag flying and is thought of as Niklas Süle in the Miasanrot office.

Maurice

Fell in love with Bayern back when Elber and Jancker wrapped themselves in carpets to celebrate goals. Never got off the hook afterwards. Knows his way around any sport and always on the lookout for new statistics.

Michael

Born and raised in Bavaria. Came into contact with the Reds very early. Is up for anything, especially football and FC Bayern. Misses Lucio’s runs. Albeit being a Bayern fan still trying to think rationally. Still grieves about Toni Kroos.

Bettina

Owes her love for Bayern to her grandma and Mehmet Scholl in equal parts. Used to be a regular in stadia all across Germany and Europe, but after moving to the UK only rarely manages to see games live. Still thinks the reserve team’s derby win of 2007 was the second best game of her life. Translating all articles she can get her hands on.

Sam

Decided for some unknown reason to learn German at school even though most Germans speak better English than I do. Picked up Spanish at the University of Nottingham, now attempting to get to grips with French with a view to a future in translation after graduating. Also an Arsenal fan, which makes the Champions League knock-out round even more interesting now that I'm involved with a Bayern website.
