Player of the Season 2017/18

At the beginning of 2016, a hype-train started in Munich that has been unstoppable ever since. In the same year we wrote a commentary about Joshua Kimmich having to go to the European Championship. Today he is a top performer at the DFB and FCB, multiple Miasanrot Award winner, and our player of the 2017/18 […]

Stats & Links: Ways into the penalty area

Therefore we present the Keyentry. A keyentry is defined as the first moment of a move at which the 16-meter line is crossed. The 16-metre […]

Scouting Report: Leon Goretzka

The 2017-18 season is now history. With Niko Kovac, a new era now begins which will hopefully be defined by success. At the beginning of pre-season one of the newcomers will probably not yet be around. After being included in the German World Cup squad, Leon Goretzka, joining on a free from Schalke 04, will […]

MSR-EN028 All Good Things Must Come To An End

Instead of what might have been a rather expected double to send of Jupp Heynckes, instead Bayern never seemed able to catch their breath after suffering defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League semi finals.

Mia San Rot’s Marc Almstedt and Maurice Hauss join host Susie Schaaf to chat about the last two matches and more.

Just glancing over the disappointing (yet, meaningless) Stuttgart game, the trio take a bite in to the DFB Pokal against Frankfurt. Future Bayern trainer Niko Kovac set his XI perfectly, while the group feel like the out-going Heynckes might have started a more effective Startelf. Individual mistakes also came in to play in the loss in Berlin, before the crew talk about some pretty contentious VAR decisions from referee Felix Zwayer.

A talk about the misguided anger at certain players by a large part of fandom is discussed, as well as how muted the ceremonies at the Allianz Arena and Marienplatz seemed to be this year.

Susie and Marc debate Maurice’s season-end grades for the entire senior squad, before they all take a glance in to the future. Will Kovac play a 3-5-2 next season? With rumors swirling around some of Bayern’s starters, who is really on their way out?

Before they close down the last podcast of the season, the team discusses a couple of listener questions before giving their very early expectations for next season.

Thank you, as always, for listening! And in case you think you’ll be without the podcast this summer? You are in luck! The MSR team will be recording for World Cup competition– with an emphasis on all Bayern players representing their respective nations. Mia san mia. Danke, Jupp!

Preview: FC Bayern München – Eintracht Frankfurt in Pokal Final

One last time to send eleven top players out on the pitch. One last time to get chased by cameras and take his place on the sideline. One last time to win and lift the golden trophy into Berlin’s night sky. Jupp Heynckes has big plans for Frankfurt, one last time this weekend. A familiar […]
