After the crazy midweek finish in Amsterdam, FC Bayern returned to domestic action with a fantastic 4:0 thumping of relegation-threatened Hannover 96 at the HDI-Arena. It may have have been “only” Hannover, but Die Roten were impressive in every department. There was a clean sheet, the midfield were magnificent, and Joshua Kimmich was simply outstanding. […]
Things continue to improve for FC Bayern, as fellow Bavarians 1. FC Nürnberg were put to the sword at the Allianz Arena. In what was a solid performance, a number of annoying series came to an end. A home win, and a clean sheet to boot. One might argue that “it was only Nürnberg”, but […]
Bayern München are still not firing, and could never get out of first gear. But it was more than enough to see off a weak AEK side. Combined with Benfica’s 1:1 draw with Ajax, the 2:0 win at the Allianz Arena puts the Bavarians into the last sixteen. 1. Lewy at the double Ahead of […]
FC Bayern München have been in poor form for well over a month now, but this afternoon’s insipid encounter with mid-table SC Freiburg really plumbed the depths. Not everything is down to Niko Kovač, but even the most sympathetic supporter has to agree that things are starting to look shaky for the coach. 1. Not […]
Wednesday evening – the floodlights came on, the ball with the stars was rolling again. FC Bayern was in Lisbon to invite the Portuguese record champion to dance. We analyze the first appearance under Niko Kovač in the Champions League. Before the game, we asked ourselves how advanced FC Bayern really was. Benfica was supposed […]
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 […]
When FC Bayern’s Under-17s became German champions last summer, Lars Lukas Mai, called “Lasse”, thrust the championship trophy into the Munich sky as captain. The centre-back joined FC Bayern from Dynamo Dresden in 2014, and this season is leading the Rekordmeister’s Under-19s onto the field as their skipper. In this interview with Miasanrot, he recalls […]
First up, the crew discusses Heynckes’ return and the team’s potential before they get in to the Freiburg match. How did the 2013 iteration of Bayern Munich fare four years later? David Alaba and Kingsley Coman seem to be coming around nicely, but is a match where Christian Streich’s Freiburg never really looked to go forward a good test?
Moving on, the trio chat about the Celtic match and the merits of Sebastian Rudy over Javi Martinez at defensive midfield. FCB’s high team press is mentioned with a special shout out to Arjen Robben as the Dutchman provided a remarkable defensive performance.
Susie questions the lack of control at the second half, and whether it was Arturo Vidal’s doing, but Christopher and Maurice are thinking the team is just looking ahead. (It gets a little tasty here, folks.)
They all get on board the Joshua Kimmich hype train– wondering if he might eclipse legend Philipp Lahm– before they question Brendan Rodgers’ decision to start without Celtic’s most potent offensive player, Moussa Dembele.
Words on Sven Ulreich (and two clean sheets!) close out the podcast as Bayern faces brutal matches in the next coming weeks: RB Leipzig in Pokal and the league, followed by a top-of-the-table Dortmund match.
Thank you, as always, for listening! We’ll be back with you after the Leipzig Pokal encounter. Mia san mia.
