Episode 13 – Grinding wins, again

To parse this, Susie welcomes Marc Almstedt and Randall Hauk to the podcast. Getting into the Frankfurt victory, they do a lot of talking about Arturo Vidal and whether he is a detriment or valuable to Bayern. Jupp Heynckes’ passive tactical approach to the match is also discussed before some well-deserved praise of goalkeepers Tom Starke and Sven Ulreich.

Koeln is Randall’s team, so much of the focus comes from that angle. Very organized defensively, he opines the Billy Goats can take a small victory in their narrow defeat. Susie asks him about the club post-Peter Stoeger, and what is his opinion on Stoeger’s subsequent hiring at Borussia Dortmund.

The group winds down the podcast with a bit of nerdiness on their favorite comic book heroes and a Star Wars/Star Trek you-pick-em. Thank you, as always for tuning in! We’ll be back with you after the BVB Pokal showdown. Mia san mia.

3 Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – 1. FC Köln 1-0 (0-0)

Before the match, the only question was how high FC Bayern would win. The Effzeh visited Munich and before the game went looking for 11 eligible players. Jupp Heynckes, on the other hand, listened to the Miasanrot editorial team and rotated heavily. After all, this was the last chance before the winter break. FC Bayern […]

Choking on pedigree?

While international football relentlessly enhances its structures, FC Bayern invokes its inner strengths. Could that lead to disaster for the club?

Preview: FC Bayern – 1. FC Köln

Furiously rushing to Europe, conquering the hearts of many fans, starting the season badly, not getting back on track, dismissing the sporting director, dismissing the coach, losing sympathies, as good as relegated before the winter break – the year 2017 sounds like a bad joke for the 1. FC Köln in time lapse. As if […]

Episode 12: French Connection

Hannover is up first as the trio discuss the midfield dominance of James Rodriguez and Javi Martinez in the 3-1 victory. They rue Bayern’s conversion troubles while praising the opposition for taking a run at the home side, and give oodles of praise to Kingsley Coman and James under Jupp Heynckes.

Moving on to PSG, they discuss whether Sebastian Rudy was the right guy for the single pivot, Corentin Tolisso’s fantastic match and how Heynckes completely outfoxed Unai Emery with his very un-Bayern-like tactics before Susie and Fletcher wildly, yet entertainingly, segue off course to chat about yellow and red cards.

Maurice brings it back together by talking about the defensive work of Coman and Franck Ribery against Paris, before they move on to discuss the arbitrariness of the newly released ESPN FC 100 rankings with a definite bias towards the Bayern players included.

Thank you for listening! Mia san mia.
