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.
London-based but with his heart firmly in Fröttmaning, Rick Joshua's love of German football goes back more than thirty years and has witnessed everything from the pain of Spain '82 and the glory of Italia '90 to the sheer desolation of Euro 2000. This has all been encapsulated in the encyclopaedic Schwarz und Weiß website and blog, which at some three hundred or so pages is still not complete. Should you wish to disturb him, you can get in touch with Rick on Twitter @fussballchef. This carries a double meaning, as he can prepare a mean Obazda too.
