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.

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.

Alongside renowned Italian star-striker Luca Toni, who won both the Golden Shoe as Europe’s best goal-scorer as well as the World Cup in 2006, 24-year-old Franck Ribéry also moved to Munich. The […]
For the final time this season we present to you the player of the month. Usually this month is full of excitement, with finals and all around decisive games. This year it had a more festive character to it. But not for one player, who simply does not want and even hates to loose – […]
Knocked out. Over. Fuck. FC Bayern lose in the Champions League quarter final 4-2 against Real Madrid.

Even though Robben and Ribéry have renewed their contracts for another year until 2018, some Bayern fans still worry about who might adequately replace them once their careers have ended.
