3 Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – Besiktas 5:0 (1:0)

A red card, a forced change, a big win. Despite some early struggles, Bayern managed to beat Besiktas with a scoreline that should be more than enough to go through to the quarter finals.

3 Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – FC Schalke 04 2-1 (2-1)

FC Bayern is the gift that keeps on giving – victories, in this case, ending the game against Schalke 2-1. Despite Jupp Heynckes’ absence, the team delivered a convincing performance on home soil. “Even Helene Fischer sometimes gets ill and misses concerts,” explained Hasan Salihamidžić when asked about the coach’s absence due to illness.

Episode 16 – Bremen, Goretzka and Nations League

The Bremen match is discussed first by the pair with Jupp Heynckes’ top-heavy 4-1-4-1 drawing scrutiny. It was an entertaining match (if you’re not a Bayern supporter). Ronan takes on the role of devil’s advocate here, as Susie picks apart the space around Javi Martinez and Franck Ribery’s over-earnest effort.

Leon Goretzka is finally coming to Bayern from Schalke in July as the team talks about his meaning to Schalke and Bayern, how Bundesliga teams eat each other, and a return to FC Bayern Germany.

Ronan and Susie answer a listener’s question about their opinion on FCB “missing out” on Alexis Sanchez and the possible pairing of he and Arturo Vidal (and that exit rumor) before talk turns to the new Nations League competition and what it all means. To be honest, Susie forgot it was even happening, but Ronan breaks it down in a way that everyone can understand.

This episode is short and sweet– tidy, even. Thank you, as always, for listening! We’ll be back to chat again after the Hoffenheim match. Mia san mia.

Project Bayern-21

“Youngsters are being wasted on Bayern’s bench”, “Youngsters can only fail in Munich” and “If you go to FCB as a youngster, you’re throwing your career away”: since Carlo Ancelotti took the reins at FC Bayern, these sorts of comments have become frequent once again. Not least because a few records were set this season […]
