Posted on 20 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

To say Mario Götze hasn’t really shown anything in Bayern Munich uniform so far would be an understatement, but there’s just too much talent between the young German’s feet to hide for much longer, and now that the injures have wore off, suddenly the European champions find themselves with a player who doesn’t need more than a second to set up the likes of Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic with easy scoring opportunities.

Bayern Munich – Making Manchester City Look Like They Don’t Belong

Posted on 3 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Another school for pressing and midfield domination was presented by Bayern Munich to an English club, this time Manchester City. Pep Guardiola might not have used a striker, instead giving Thomas Muller the most forward role, but the absolutely wonderful performance from Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Toni Kroos meant that there was really no need for a true number 9 to get what they set out to accomplish.

It was simply impossible for a Bayern Munich team so talented no to start putting in impressive performances at some point.

Posted on 18 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

Very few are actually pleased with what Pep Guardiola is doing at the moment with Bayern Munich, but so far, the streak of winning and remaining undefeated lives on, as Mario Mandzukic, with so many questions about his new role in a possible ‘no-striker’ formation proved his value with the goal and being the offensive pivot for a team still trying to sort its way through a new identity.

The closer we reach the beginning of the season in the Premier League, the more desperate Manchester United become in trying to find the central midfielder they’ve been craving for.

From Franck Ribery elbowing Robert Lewandowski, to the goals (including the ones that didn’t count) and especially the 89th minute winner by Arjen Robben, reviewing the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund looks much better in gif-form. More

Bayern Munich – Franck Ribery as the Perfect Team Player

Posted on 2 May, 2013, by in Soccer

One of the more interesting things Bayern Munich have given us in their incredible run this season is the next prototype to the perfect team. One with quite a few talented players, and so-called “stars”, but without the sense of anyone being greater than the collective.
