Bayern Munich keep or dump: What will the German champions look like next season?

Thu, 6 Jun 2019 07:43:42 GMT

Bayern may have finished the season with a Bundesliga/DFB Pokal Double, but that hasn't quite lifted the skepticism surrounding manager Niko Kovac. This team looks headed for a rebuild and a revamp in the summer, and there are plenty of resources available. Rafinha, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are all leaving, freeing up space on the wage bill, and so is James Rodriguez, whose loan won't be renewed. Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard are already on their way, but there is clearly more work...

Mon, 20 May 2019 09:59:00 GMT

ESPN FC's Craig Burley can't hold in his excitement after watching Manchester City's dominant FA Cup victory over Watford.

Robben and Ribery's status as Bayern legends assured, but are they irreplaceable?

Sun, 19 May 2019 03:44:00 GMT

For one final time, the most important duo of wingers in Bayern Munich's history graced the Allianz Arena pitch and scored as second-half substitutes in a 5-1 win over Frankfurt to help the club to a seventh consecutive Bundesliga title. Then they showed everyone how much they differed as characters after the game. Whereas Franck Ribery was overcome with emotions and broke down in tears in front of the Sudkurve stand, Arjen Robben bemoaned not finding the net for a second time in a TV interview...

Bayern boss Kovac faces uncertain future even if Bundesliga title is sealed

Fri, 17 May 2019 04:48:00 GMT

Mathematically, it's quite straightforward. Bayern Munich will be champions for a seventh consecutive time on Saturday afternoon unless they lose at home to Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund win at Borussia Monchengladbach. According to the implied probability of the bookmakers' odds, the chances of both of these things happening are slim: 3.3 percent. Dortmund need another one of those minor football miracles, Bayern only a draw due to their vastly superior goal difference. In light of...

Bayern Munich new shirt is red again but has an Allianz feel

Wed, 15 May 2019 01:00:00 GMT

Looks like David Alaba won't be going anywhere this summer then. Bayern Munich have revealed their new home kit for the 2019-20 season and in a fairly predictable turn of events, the club have opted for a red approach. While the colourway might be traditional, the shirt is emblazoned with an interesting motif inspired by the angular architecture of the Allianz Arena.

Germany's rising stars reach crossroads as transfer window swings open

Fri, 10 May 2019 07:37:00 GMT

Last summer was a relatively quiet affair in the transfer market. But this year it promises to be a frenzy, fired by wide-scale disappointment. With the exception of Liverpool, all European superclubs will be forced to spend big to compensate for a strong sense of underachievement. The Bundesliga, one of the more stable leagues, will see plenty of ins and outs too. While Bayern Munich are rebuilding, Borussia Dortmund are expected to ship out half a dozen squad players to make room for three to four...

Wed, 10 Apr 2019 11:35:00 GMT

Bayern Munich are top of the pile in the Bundesliga once more, but even a thumping 5-0 win over fellow title contenders Borussia Dortmund hasn't been enough to bring tranquility to Bavaria's capital. On the contrary, Saturday's triumph has only served to amplify the rumblings of discontent behind the scenes.

Bayern vs. Dortmund was no contest as Bundesliga giants seized control of title race with five-goal rout

Sat, 6 Apr 2019 01:09:00 GMT

Bayern seized on Dortmund's weaknesses from the kickoff to arguably seize control of the title race with six games left. MUNICH, Germany -- "Gegen Bayern kann mal verlieren" ("You can lose against Bayern") is what the hardcore home fans in the Allianz Arena south stand were chanting sarcastically at the final whistle. Yes, you can -- but not like this. Not if you're two points clear of the Reds at the top of the table with seven games to go and a big chance to win your first championship in seven years. For all the good things the home side did in their 5-0 win -- and there were many -- it was mostly down to Borussia...

Gnabry's emergence as a Germany star is Arsenal's loss and Bayern's gain

Fri, 29 Mar 2019 09:52:00 GMT

Following their stoppage-time win over the Netherlands, the FC crew believe Leroy Sane and Germany may be turning a corner in their redevelopment. On Wednesday, Focus magazine's sports editor Dirk Adam asked his Twitter followers whether the €80 million Bayern Munich had splashed out for the transfer of French defender Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid wouldn't have been better spent on 320 Ferraris, 80,000 iPhones or 53 million scoops of ice cream. Adam forgot to include the best possible answer, however: the ideal thing the German champions could have done with €80 million would have been to buy another 10 Serge Gnabrys. Yes,...
