It has not been the World Cup of FC Bayern. Since 1990, at least one current player of the record champion had always scored at a World Cup. This chain will likely break in Russia in 2018. But is this really a terrible thing? There’s more to this issue than just facts. It’s absurd to […]
Bayern got a slow start against Hannover, but eventually ran out 3:0 victors in what is now a basically meaningless Bundesliga match. And the big stuff comes in the second half of the pod where we’ll discuss the 1:2 loss at home to Real Madrid, and all the news surrounding the Champions League semi final tie.
Before delving in to the pair of matches, Susie and Dennis chat about their geek fandoms and why exactly the podcast was being recorded in the middle of the night in Germany.

Assessing Bayern’s chances in the return tie at the Bernabeu– and how Bayern might go through to the final are talked about before ending with some thoughts on Niko Kovac, Eintracht Frankfurt, Saturday’s match and the Pokal finale.
Thanks, loyal listeners, as always. We’ll be back shortly! Mia san mia. Mia san Rot.

Since the 2009/10 season, FC Bayern has reached the Champions League semi-finals six times. Since then, only Inter Milan (2011) and Real Madrid (2017) have managed to stop the five-time CL winner. After the first leg in Sevilla (2:1) the Munich team had good chances to push the number to seven. But after the return […]
FC Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund 6:0. A game symbolising the Bundesliga season: Bayern outclass the competition without being seriously challenged. For years, the DFL has been trying to market the matches between Bayern and Dortmund as a kind of “German Classico” and regularly schedules the return leg for April.
