FC Bayern have played a good season – and yet a tough analysis is required to determine why it did not become an outstanding one. However, who should provide the decisive insights? Karl-Heinz Rummenigge could not really enjoy his summer vacation on Sylt. The phone rang every day, the same voice kept ringing: Jupp Heynckes […]
With a last minute win in Wolfsburg, Bayern has managed to hold its own in the final rehearsal for the next Champions League round. In the previous season, FC Bayern had clinched the club’s 27th championship with a 6-0 win in Wolfsburg. Despite a waning competition this year, it was not yet a matter for […]
The award ceremony of the Miasanrot awards for the past calendar year 2017 continues. Our last year’s rising star of the year is no longer really unknown, since he has been playing a role at the record champion for too long. Nevertheless, Joshua Kimmich can confidently be described as such. Searching for the perfect role […]
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.

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.
