Rode shines as hard-working Bayern get back on track against Hoffenheim

by Rick Joshua

This past week has seen things crashing down all over the place at FC Bayern – from the error-riddled defeat at FC Porto through to the internal fallout resulting in and following the sudden resignation of long-time doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt. Skipper Philipp Lahm being ruled out with a bout of gastroenteritis certainly didn’t help matters, […]

2014-15 Bundesliga Power Rankings: Match Day 28

by Bundesliga Fanatic Staff

We are back with the 2014-15 Bundesliga Power Rankings – the post-Match Day 28 edition. Since our last edition, Mönchengladbach and Leverkusen are on winning rampages, Bayern is “meh,” Eintracht spins on the merry-go-round of its own making, Dortmund flounders and Klopp steps down, Hertha rallies, Paderborn tries a last gasp resuscitation attempt, and HSV stinks up […]

Last roll of the dice – Can Bruno Labbadia save HSV from relegation?

by Niklas Wildhagen

Once again, it’s been a tumultuous season for HSV – from start to finish. During the summer, the club had seemingly found its confidence again. The introduction of the “HSV Plus” concept was meant to change the club from being a sleeping giant with structural issues to becoming once again a team that could finish higher […]

Injury crisis? What injury crisis? Lewa’s double help makeshift Bayern cruise past Frankfurt

by Rick Joshua

After the gruelling DFB-Pokal quarter-final against Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the week, a depleted FC Bayern resumed their Bundesliga campaign with a professional and highly competent 3-0 win over mid-table Eintracht Frankfurt. The injury problems may be bad and Bayern may have had only four fit substitutes on the bench, but it was more than […]

Lewandowski claims the points as hard-working Bayern scalp Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park

by Rick Joshua

The Red Dragons gathered in force at the Bavarian Beerhouse for the much awaited “Klassiker” against Borussia Dortmund, and after a gritty encounter at the Signal Iduna Park that lacked the usual quality and gloss but contained plenty of drama and tension, a depleted and rejigged Bayern side did enough to score the crucial goal […]

Does German Football Culture Need a Manifesto?

by Travis Timmons

I immediately thought about German football culture as I read my way through David Goldblatt and the Football Action Network’s (FAN) bombshell, “This is Our Game,” manifesto published in Sunday’s Guardian. While Goldblatt diagnoses the domestic game’s ills in England, I couldn’t help but wonder to what extent the “This is Our Game” manifesto is applicable to German […]

Insipid Bayern ridden roughshod by well-drilled Foals

by Rick Joshua

This week’s report was always going to be a little different, with my being in the south stand of the Allianz Arena in Munich to watch FC Bayern live in what was arguably a modern revival of the age-old Klassiker of the 1970s against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Sadly, for Bayern fans the game wouldn’t quite match […]

Lahm Returns as Bayern Dispatches Combative Bremen

by Rick Joshua

Fresh from their 7-0 demolition of Shakhtar Donetsk, FC Bayern returned to Bundesliga action against 1980s and early 1990s rival Werder Bremen and registered an easy 4-0 win, with Robert Lewandowski scoring a much-needed confidence-boosting brace. Slight knocks to Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry meant that coach Pep Guardiola already had to make two changes […]

by Bundesliga Fanatic Staff

We are back with the 2014-15 Bundesliga Power Rankings – the post-Match Day 24 edition. Since our last edition, Bayern have been Bayern – dolling out the “Bayern treatment” and being all “mia san mia” along the way – Werder are hanging in there, BVB are zooming upwards and onwards, Eintracht and Hoffenheim are in midtable […]

Unforgettable Goal Celebrations: Bundesliga Style

by Mathew Burt

Now I cannot profess to know what it feels like to score a Bundesliga goal in front of passionate set of home fans, but I can’t imagine my first reaction would be ‘let’s go and grab that goat’, but that is just the reaction of 1.FC Köln’s Anthony Ujah after he fired home his side’s […]
