Dieter has yet to fill out a bio.
I agree, we should develop players and every club even clubs with major investors like PSG are mixing big names with youth. Take their purchase of Veratti and now Digne ,Matuidi etc along with Zlatan,Lavezzi andThiago Silva. I have always said Goetze wasn't needed but with Gomez gone Lewandowski would be better. I guess they purchased him because Ribery and Robben are getting old and they had failed to attract Reus. Its good that Guardiola refused any more CBs,that would be highly unecessary even if Badstuber is injured, plus I am sure Emre will play in 2-3 yrs time. I always believe a squad should have a mix of big names,young players who are hungry and willing to learn and team players like Mueller who will work hard so that his team succeeds. Having a galacticos squad makes people think everyone knows best and undermines the importance of the coach. Forget galacticos,we faced this problem under Hitzfeld when everyone was an established player and thought they knew everything. Thats why I have been saying to all Bayern fans the same thing the management says,if Guardiola makes changes and it works its the duty of the players to listen to their boss. Tomorrow for example someone can't join Dortmund and say "Hey i don't like pressing its very boring and I will play the way I want because I scored a lot".
There is one thing you have to keep in mind about Lahm,he has been injury free,hence I fel his body will continue a bit longer like Kahn,Ballack,Matthaus,Maldini,Zanetti,Giggs etc but we should still look for a replacement. Roede is my best guess but we cannot rule out Mitchell Weiser, it seems Bayern wanted him at the first team squad this yr and Guardiola already likes him. It will be one of these two. Personally I would prefer Weiser because I like his style of play more. But then again Bayern being Bayern we might do something crazy on the transfer market next couple of yrs and buy someone. Next yr Rafinha will leave so maybe we will have to buy a defender. Also lets not forget Jerome Boateng can play RB like he did for Germany,so who knows maybe if Badstuber is fit and raring to go we will have options.
I was hoping he makes it to the WC,now that slow Mertesacker will play,god help Germany! He and Hummels forms a good partnership. The good thing though is Boateng is playing well,though knowing Low he ll play Lahm LB and Boateng RB!
Ok no problem, however what I was trying to indicate is you are always welcome to my homepage but I was expecting a more personal conversation. Anyways irrespective of what I said in the forum you will agree its always harder to admit you are wrong, so if I am wrong on the Hoeness issue I will be man enough to admit it and you are welcome to insult me as much as you want then. However same goes to you,no need to delete account,just be man enough and admit you are wrong. Irrespective of what happens he is still innocent and will be so till the court pronounces him. Right now there is not even a trial!
Just out of curiosity why do you always post the same thing in the community and my profile? It makes you look more retarded than you actually are or.....
Dortmund only spent the money got from selling their players, you can spend money you have earned.//
Exactly,so do Bayern. We spend the money we earn. So stop pretending to hold a moral high ground. In fact its your history which suggests you didn't in the past unlike us. You will have a right to call us "buyern" the day you have a business model like Ajax or Porto. Funny thing is despite being a talent factory and selling club both those teams have bigger trophy cabinets than you including European trophies.
Like Ruminegge said "Don't preach water while drinking wine" .Who do you call "poaching" mate,your own management admitted the same for Reus' transfer.As you said yourself legally both were same but Goetze's attitude was different which lead to Dortmund fans feeling betrayed. There is no poaching here,a bunch of clubs were ready to trigger his release clause and he accepted personal terms with one.And hypocrisy? Sheesh,look in your own closet first. Watzke and Klopp give lengthy interviews as to how Dortmund's business model is different while explaining why they won't big for Dzeko and spent more than 50 mill in this transfer window.As i said,I know your history well and why you went bankrupt. So stop acting like your club is Porto or Ajax.
Echete Liebe was brought up in the relevant thread as that was used as an argument to why Bayern can be stopped by Dortmund which is massively bogus.Fan atmosphere does play a role in intimidation of opponents but Bayern plays in that stadium in a regular basis and is not unfamiliar like other European teams.
Buyern? We will pay nothing for Lewandowski,lesser than what Dortmund had got him for lol. We don't consider our players as problems,we don't have a small club mentality. As you can see contrary to claims,even someone like Gomez who was benched for so long had nothing but words of praise while Echte Liebe players seems to have "Echte Liebe" for Buyern :D There is always room for world class players at Bayern. Goetze had a release clause which many clubs were ready to trigger but he rejected EPL offers for Bayern,so its not as if you wouldn't have lost the player. Don't be bitter about the fact that we are supreme are doing business matched by only Real Madrid.
Goetze signed the contract extension because the release clause was included.So if it was a surprise then I must say the management must be pretty dumb. Unless you have an impossible buyout clause like Hulk at Porto nothing should come as a surprise considering Bayern paid 40 mill for a DM.
If you think out of 9 encounters between CDR,La Liga and CL if Mourinho's 2 victories for a 500 million Euro squad are considered "owned" then I guess new definitions of the word need to be invented. Last time I checked getting raped 5-0 is called owned.
Gundogan and Lewandowski got chances in second half.Madrid could have been 3-0 up within first 15 min,so please watch the game again.And yes in CL you came the closest however,let me remind you Stuttgart and Leverkusen's performances prove,its not the club but the style of play in German football with less spaces which are a problem for Barca. If those teams had also faced Bayern 5 times this season they would have come close too. Last time I checked Leverkusen was just a point behind you in the league and Stuttgart played far better in the German Cup than Dortmund did registering one tame effort on target.That being said I agree with you amongst CL teams Dortmund was the best and despite departures you will see in many topics I have praised Klopp over Mourinho and have said many times to Serie A and EPL fanboys that Dortmund is still ahead of your teams and will reach semi final of next CL.
Robben is always a destroyer for Spanish and Italian sides, Barca's inverted full backs who don't track back leave a ton of space. Mandzukic's stifling of Pirlo pretty much cut out the Juventus attack leaving Robben and Ribery to wreck havoc.
And I don't know what decline are you talking about, Barcelona are at the same level as before. Bayern are just elevated their level at the moment. If you need reminding Barcelona broke the 100 point barrier something not achieved during Guardiola reign.
Are you trying to say there is no reason to believe a man who won 14 out of 19 trophies he competed in his senior coaching career and introduced some major innovations which were dying out tactically besides his own? Thats a bloody joke. For any technically strong player Guardiola will be preferred to Klopp. Klopp's high pressing game was the reason Dortmund ran out of gas way too easily against Madrid and Bayern. Vs Madrid Ronaldo and Higuain's poor finishing saved their asses,not so lucky against Bayern. Compare that to the Sacchi style fake pressing Bayern resorted to,something Guardiola does as well. That gives technically strong players far more chances to improve the finer aspects of the game. Klopp is just starting his career and for his budget he has done well. That doesn't guarantee he will be a huge success in managing a big club. Mourinho was very cute in Porto Inter Chelsea,come Madrid RIP. Not saying same thing will happen to Klopp, but currently nothing suggests Klopp is a more attractive option to work with than Pep Guardiola. And its very easy to say anyone can coach Bayern bla bla,same thing was said about Barcelona,I can see how amazing they are now that Guardiola is gone. Once Ancelotti takes charge they can forget the league title as well.
