With Arjen Robben, a player leaves FC Bayern at the end of the season who has shaped the club over the last ten years like few others in the club’s long history. His Wembley goal made him immortal. However, limiting him to that would not do justice to this unique career. November 20th 2018 – […]
When FC Bayern München stepped out onto the pitch to take on SL Benfica, everything was up in the air. The team was under pressure, and Niko Kovač’s head was hovering over the chopping block. Ninety and bit minutes later, the coach was finally able to crack a smile. On what was Bayern’s best game […]
After going through the motions for over an hour, Bayern woke up from their coma. The job done, they then dozed off again. It was not pretty, but Niko Kovač’s men did what they had to do. Two goals scored, three points safely in the bag, and the knockout phase in clear sight. starting formations: […]
In the closing stages of the clash between Bayern Munich and Hertha BSC, Bayern hearts were in mouths. Kingsley Coman, just subbed on, seemed to have gotten injured in a duel. Just a few hours later, the confirmation: it’s very likely that the Frenchman will miss the rest of the season. We analyse the significance […]
The pair also discuss the always-present Robert Lewandowski transfer rumors, as well as the possibility of Malcolm coming to the club from Bordeaux. Sadly, they end this week with the horrible news of Kingsley Coman’s surgery.
The conversation about the Besiktas match largely revolves around the first half of play where FCB couldn’t really get it going despite being a man up, then moving on to chatting about Hertha Berlin’s ultra-defensive set-up, and how the Reds found it very difficult to pick that lock.
Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben didn’t exactly make cases for a contract extension with their play against Berlin, while Chris and Susie decide that they can allow Lewandowski his less-than-clinical goal scoring record for all the positives that he brings to Bayern’s XI.
Speaking of Lewandowski, the duo chats about his change in management and what that could possibly mean going forward for the club. Also discussed: what options might be available if the Polish striker decides to leave.
The Malcolm to Bayern rumors are heating up, and with that they look at who next season’s wing players might possibly be before moving on to the terrible news of Kingsley Coman’s ankle surgery. Is Bayern’s treble season dashed? How much can Jupp Heynckes depend on Ribery going forward? What changes in formation might Heynckes put forth to deal with the loss of such an emerging talent?
Thanks, as always, for listening in! We’ll be back with you next week. Mia san mia.
Hertha BSC have ended Munich’s win streak. They’ve gained a point against a mostly uncreative Bayern side with a compact defense. It was the 66th time the two teams from the German capital and the record champion from the Isar met in the Bundesliga. Munich went into the game on a 14 game win streak. […]
A red card, a forced change, a big win. Despite some early struggles, Bayern managed to beat Besiktas with a scoreline that should be more than enough to go through to the quarter finals. After only finishing the group as second placed team, Bayern were prepared for the worst. Luckily enough, they got one of […]
Bayern Munich made a rather remarkable comeback against Hoffenheim after going down 2:0, but whatever tactics could be discussed would always be eclipsed by Sandro Wagner’s hilarious goal on the day.
Going beyond that, the trio discusses the Leon Goretzka transfer, as well as Serge Gnabry’s return to Bayern, before getting in to the heart of the futures for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the club.
Who is leaving in the summer gets some mention until the team talks Uli Hoeness’ fangirling over Jupp Heynckes. Are his quotes about “no plan B” posturing, or?
It’s a very entertaining episode that covers a lot more than we initially thought it might. (Or, at least, Susie thinks so.) We hope to be back with you after the Paderborn Pokal match, and as always — thank you for listening! Mia san mia.
