But before they dug into those two topics, Susie and Maurice chat about how they came by their Bayern fandoms, the possibility of an alternate World Cup tournament and Robert Lewandowski’s new hair don’t.
Finally getting into the good stuff, the pair discuss the highly entertaining Dortmund – Bayern match and why it wasn’t the tactical masterclass we’re used to seeing from these two sides when they match up.
The 1:3 score would end up being flattering for an FCB side that managed to be clinical when it counted, and the excellent performances of Kimmich, Ulreich, Coman, Alaba, Suele and Robben get mentioned as well as a superior match from Pulisic.
Moving on to the Nationalelf, Maurice introduces the 58 men that might have a shot at traveling to Russia next summer as he and Susie try to pare down that list to a workable 26-man practice squad and a final 23-man roster (all the while keeping in mind that Jogi Loew is going to do exactly what Jogi Loew does).
They close out the episode briefly discussing the World Cup pots and ideal and not-so-ideal draws that Germany might face. We are happy to be getting back to club football, though, and will be back with you after the Augsburg match. Thank you, as always, for listening! Mia san mia.

FC Bayern win their Champions League opener against RSC Anderlecht 3-0. After the defeat against Hoffenheim, the Reds get back on the winning track. For long stretches of the game Anderlecht managed to put up a challenge that was stronger than the final result suggests, despite being a man down for the bigger part of […]
After crowning Thiago as our player of the season and Mats Hummels as our newcomer of the season, we complete the Miasanrot-awards for the 2016/17 campaign by giving away our remaining honors. Youngster of the season: Joshua Kimmich In a season that offered just little playing time for young players at Bayern, Joshua Kimmich made […]
FC Bayern have to blame themselves for missing out on competing in any final this season. In the games against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund individual mistakes were made which ultimately give a good season a bitter taste and reignite a lot of arguments. It’s always important to look at the bigger picture and look […]
It’s March and FC Bayern are looking like they’re justifying the positive predictions. There is a definite upswing in performance. Now Bayern are facing Frankfurt; an opponent that gave them a tough time in the first meeting of the season. Back then, the current league leaders found it difficult because Ancelotti and the squad hadn’t […]
Three home games, 16 goals, one goal conceded and three entirely satisfactory wins. It looks as though FC Bayern have rediscovered their attacking department.
