Any club except for maybe Arsenal or Tottenham would hurt Draxler for now. He's still young, and incredibly talented, but I don't think a move to...
My name is Matthew Buening, and I am a resident of the Emerald City, also known as Seattle Washington. (I am in the process of moving to Pullman, Washington though.)
After living in Central America for a bit after high school, I became addicted to world football or soccer. The teams I support are FC Bayern Munich. FC Barcelona, and of course the Seattle Sounders FC. I am also a supporter of the United States National Team (both men and women's) and the German National Team.
Aside from soccer, I am also a fan of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners.
When I'm not studying, I like to write on soccer. You can catch my writings on http://www.ibtimes.com/sportsnet and www.counterattackingfootball.com. My focus is on the Bundesliga and the German National Team.
I am also commentator on the Rekordmeister Podcast. (A podcast centered around all things Bayern Munich.) We're just getting it started, but it's going great so far.

I don't think Schurrle will be on the bench with Mourinho talking to him personally. Mata is more likely to get the chop as per media and knowing Mourinhos track record. He is a fraud who goes by a particular requirement. Any coach who says "We didn't foul Lewandowski enough" you know his priorities are not football. Thats why I am looking forward to his second humiliation and hopefully we can aid that process and save football when we face Chelsea in Super Cup.
I dunno if Lewandowski would reject Madrid and go to less appealing English clubs,if anything he has seen what Vidal is doing and what he would have done had he joined Bayern. If you ask Vidal to replace the two scudetti with the smile on Javi Martinez' face posing with the CL,he would take it in a heart beat. It worked out better for us than him. I like Javi and he is a better player, actually if you go by stat gurus and technical experts Javi outranks Schewinstiger this season!
I won't be upset if we don't get him,I would want the Bayern board to smarten up and get Alvaro Moarata. He will get more chances than at Madrid and who knows if he is the next Raul. Plus Robben,Mueller,Goetze all can play as a CF and in fact narrowing the formation was the key to CL success. Robben was devastating once deployed as a second striker.
BVB is rolling back the Marco Amoroso yrs lol! They get discount strikers like Julian Schieber and then Sokratis ! Bremen must me laughing in their grave selling Sokratis for 10 mill, I think thats there best business ever,even better than 30% match fit Marko Marin being offloaded to Chelsea. Did you also read Hueng Min Son rejected BVB for Leverkusen? Now thats a good business if you ask me,he is highly committed with lot of flair and is consistent. He came for 10 mill and Leverkusen offloaded a declining Schurrle for 22 mill!! Leverkusen's main loss would be Carvajal though, that I doubt if they can replace. BVB better be careful or else next season we will be trolling them about a two horse race Bundesliga,Bayern and Bayer :P This yr they escaped with 1 point, next yr maynot be so lucky.
Seems now BVB is doing damage control by refuting the Madrid bid claims,typical! Well lets see,he says he will involve lawyers and all. This will get ugly. Plus did you read about the fight between BVB and Leverkusen over Sokratis transfer? BVB have no respect for Bundesliga,destrying the competition by buying players for back up when other clubs try to buy for their first team. Carvajal is gone Leverkusen needed Sokratis. Also seem how much they paid,10 mill for sokratis! We got Dante for 4.5,what a shame!!
Seems like my account got screwed up. Yeah I kinda want him to join us after all,the guy seems committed to Bayern. He can easily leave and go to another club like Vidal. Lets wait and see.Anyways days without football are killing me thankfully Emperor Rafael Nadal is back! Waiting for Wimbeldon. This time he pulled out of two bit opens, I hope he gets a fair seeding and wins this one to shut up Federer fans once and for all.Did you know he has the better h2h against every single player in top 20! :O Unbelievable!
I think the situation might end up like Lllorente,he will sign a pre contract in Jan and join us.Right now it seems our charming board as seductive as they are have brainwashed their agents and thats all we need to know. They were the ones who have filled his head and had told English clubs not to bid. I think Bayern are doing the right thing testing out BVB and not tabling an offer,which they can reject and act hero. Tbh,this is the mentality of a small club. Once someone doesn't sign an extension means he has lost the trust of the club best to let him go and cash in on him. BVB also know Bayern will pay the highest for him,no one overpays for Bundesliga players barring Bayern. Vidal was made to look like a clown,Lewandowski will learn from that.With Bayern the guarantee of success is more than any English team or Real Madrid.
Yeah,I trolled the Dortmund fans hard as you can see and garnering a lot of hate,it was fun though! :D Well,now that I see it.There is no reason for us to do with Mario Gomez what Dortmund are doing to Lewandowski,he is under contract till 2016 and we can keep him as back up he has no choice. Nothing really needs to change. Doortmund guys are saying that Lewandowski was offered 7 mill,truth is it was 3,thats why he refused to extend.
What are the chances of us surviving next season with Mandzukic and Pizza alone? Assuming Gomez is gone ,Goetze and Kroos injured. Seems like Dortmund have held Lewandowski hostage,bastards! They don't pay him and don't want him to succed either. Did you know he earns 1 mill after improved salary when Reus gets 5 mill?
Ole ole ole! Mia San triple!! what a season!!! Stuttgart played probably the best football any team has played vs us all season!! Better than the last German club faced :P
Tymo says Heynckes is surely joining Madrid,maybe thats why he said "last chance to win the trophy" :P Jokes apart Madrid will be very dangerous no matter who joins Heynckes or Ancelotti both are great coaches and they are making good moves in transfer market!
I am very angry with Brazil now!! No Dante and Gustavo for DFB Cup!!! WTF!!!!
