Guys, it sounds like now would be a good time to buy Ronaldo! If the board was offered to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, I think they should take it. I know there are people here that think having Ronaldo will lead to trouble, but the guy is a serial winner and in modern Bayern history we have always had a big man striker in the team. (/s)


sc2isalivegaem

we should even trade Musiala for him!


ObjectiveZlatan

Ronaldo gonna shut everyone up in the world cup


kvnschm

Pathetic


Tyrath

Doubt.


CHLSI

with a r16 exit


No_Community4641

Or even better, a group stage exit.


ayyndrew

🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾


kvnschm

Idk how any club could consider a player, who doesn't perform and gives an interview like that. Wow


REDDlT-_-

His fans still defending him idk why


scrambledeggsss

He has reached peak narcissism.


King_Vercingetorix

> He has reached peak narcissism. You‘d think so, but knowing Ronaldo he‘ll probably find ways to top it soon. I‘m not sure how exactly, maybe by having an on field tantrum at the World Cup for Portugal exiting early even though he keeps starting as the main striker?


Nunduine

Man am I glad the bosses decided against bringing Ronaldo here. I have never seen someone with this big of an ego.


Imeanhowcouldiforget

Hes coming to bayern 100%, links are popping up now and no chance hed take that interview if he didnt have a big team lined up


Nunduine

Already denied by 3 different reporters including our most trusted one.


Nunduine

He's not coming here. Especially after that interview. You're delusional if you think so.


cristiano-potato

RemindMe! 2 months I’m shocked Bayern are considering it too but I think the other guy is right, Ronaldo would simply *not* have done this if he didn’t know his next destination


Nunduine

Like I said. [Still think he's coming in 2 months?](https://twitter.com/Plettigoal/status/1592417490302537728?s=20&t=rJNMKDGohWuT-3UyLq6sYg) [How about this?](https://twitter.com/kerry_hau/status/1592402050494894084?s=20&t=rJNMKDGohWuT-3UyLq6sYg) [Or this?](https://twitter.com/cfbayern/status/1592375020575424512?s=20&t=rJNMKDGohWuT-3UyLq6sYg) I know my club

r4thb0ne

Thank fuck we didn’t go for Ronaldo. His latest interview is crazyyyy


poghosyan

do you have a full interview link? I only saw clips


r4thb0ne

I believe the full interview is being released on Wednesday/Thursday but several snippets have been released. I hope this works for you: https://www.givemesport.com/88083466-cristiano-ronaldo-clip-from-most-explosive-interview-hes-ever-given/amp


poghosyan

thank you


footysocc

yup, dodged a big fat bullet. plus, he'd be benched by El Choupo anyways


LordSW93

To be fair, Choupo is benching everyone right now.


poghosyan

People saying they wouldn't play Lewy ahead of Choupo are coping


Spockodile

Or joking.


ObjectiveZlatan

No


irun_mon

Conversations people aren't ready to have: Davies' end product is considerably underwhelming


No_Community4641

He adds a lot to our team (especially when we are looking for a counter attack) with his pace and dribbling. Yes, his defensive abilities need a lot of improvement but given he plays on the same side as Lucas Hernandez who makes it borderline impossible for the opposition to attack from that side, he has more freedom to do what he does best. While there is a lot of room of improvement defensively, I think his abilities fit well for our playing style.


joyridah

Fair, it’s not great, but is that really the expectation of him ? The guy that should be putting those crosses in, when needed, is Coman..and he’s even worse this year than previous years, and he’s been pretty bad all along…probably the weakest link in the starting 11+first subs at the moment


Homygod319

Davies is an attacking fb so yes his he’s expected to put in decent crosses? Also Davies shit crossing has nothing to do with Coman so why bring him into this? Davies is crossing is worse than Coman


Spockodile

One of the expectations of a fullback is to deliver crosses, yes.


LordSW93

True but for argument's sake, who would he cross to? Now we have Choupo as a potential target in the box and maybe Goreztka but the way we have been playing, it's not like we relied on him to put crosses in. When we do cross it's usually from a more controlled situation like Kimmich slightly off the center or Pavard on the right when there are people in the box. When Davies runs up the wing I don't think there's necessarily a good target for him that's ready to receive a (high) cross.


Homygod319

It’s his low crosses are pretty bad. They either don’t get past the first man or don’t come close to finding anybody


irun_mon

I mean more than just crosses. I think its prety accepted that his crosses are bad


Homygod319

I’ve been saying since last season that Davies crossing is ass and needs serious improvement. He’s still young tho so he has plenty of time to improve it. Hopefully nagelsmann is helping him with that


wifi-wire

His crossing is bad. But our game plan doesn’t rely on his crosses, he’s just supposed to run down the left side and play a simple pass towards the centre. I know that this might be unpopular but I don’t think he‘d ever made it into the first eleven as a winger. Playing him as LB was actually genius by Kovac.


GroupUpWithMei

Don’t think his job really is to have an end product. When he’s asked to go forward he’s lightning - but really he’s just there to stretch the defence. When else do we actually play on the overlap and cross/low cross. Why don’t we? God knows. It’s been successful for us in the past and we now have players that it suits extremely well and a defence capable of holding a high line.


jsnamaok

Let me rephrase that for you: “Conversations people aren’t interested in having”


julesvr5

Na I think most people would and should agree. Does end product include crossing? Because his crossing is OK but nothing special either, eh excels with his speed and dribbling


xTatamo

love seeing union getting trashes every week now


TheEmperorsWrath

They were leading the league over us for like 2 match-days, you're talking about them like they're Lazio lmfao


SebRev99

Just gonna quote something I read last night while trying to sleep, it might help people here just like it helps me: “One bad chapter does not mean the story is over”


GroupUpWithMei

I don’t know dude. We’ll see which chapter George RR Martin writes tyrions speech in the final episode of game of thrones series once the books come out… The story is certainly over from then!!


Goodfella7

Mine is "it eez what it eez"


SebRev99

That could work too


Gertex

Love that. Thank you for sharing


footysocc

NFL fans apparently think our pitch / grass is shit


KA_Bayern

It is tbf. Probably the worst pitch of the top teams and been that way for years. I remember Pep complained about it once and we did a ton of work to resurface it but it didnt get much better


kadoooosh

Our players have been slipping so much lately, it’s like a waterslide


julesvr5

Our pitch isn't very good currently tbh. We will get a new one over the winter


OneBeerAndWhiskeyPls

looks pretty slippery and IMO it already did for us recently american football grass pitches are more firm than ours, maybe thats why


footysocc

yeah, makes sense that we want the pitch more slippery for the ball to glide and the NFL needs a dry pitch in comparison. I saw the clip of Brady (I think) slipping lmao


OneBeerAndWhiskeyPls

also we dont have any 150kg dudes and metal studs are allowed for our guys seeing brady slip was probably the play of the year so far LOL


Insanel0l

I mean it was pretty obvious that Union was just crazily overperforming, I remember how bad they were against us and didn't do shit but butchering, but Freiburg on the other hand is proving that they belong at the top.


julesvr5

So the Uniontergang has started..


Ohnehoffnung

Das war ein Befehl! I laughed at your pun attempt.


CoreyWells

Union haven't been the same since the lost to Bochum


footysocc

union lmao


joyridah

And things just got even worse for Union…


MrMarques8701

Jesus Christ, Union 😔 Edit: JESUS CHRIST, UNION!


NifferEUW

The fuck is happening in that game


jsnamaok

Well Union had a good run at the top. Don’t think anyone was expecting them to maintain it.


Mytiq_

They dropped down *quick* too, they’re fifth as things stand


jsnamaok

The massacre in Leverkusen really did not help 😄


Insanel0l

No matter how, but we need Kolo Mouani. Contract till '27 will mean that he's gonna cost unbelievable amount of money, tho.


irun_mon

I was about to post the same thing. Love the guy. When he came on against us at the beginning of the season I was already hooked.


LordSW93

Just turned on the NFL game, not saying I want that but how funny would it be if the ref's were mic'ed up and we all heard the whole explanation for the fouls.


footysocc

I'd love that, especially for the refs who are more "buddy-like" with the players like Aytekin


Spockodile

Götze seems to be fitting in so well at Frankfurt. Really happy for him.


kadoooosh

We’re getting so much free promo during that NFL game. The commentators mentioned Fc Bayern a gazillion times already


TheEmperorsWrath

You love to see it


OpportunityNearby138

Just had a dream last night where we lost 4-3 to psg even tho we were 2-0 up 🤦‍♂️🤨😭


rinacio

Those are called nightmares


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Luckily it's a dream


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Absolutely ABSURD how Thiago is not going to the World Cup. Same with Gravy, what on earth are Van Gaal and Luis Enrqiue possibly thinking


Homygod319

Gravenberch doesn’t deserve to be at the World Cup tbh. Thiago doesn’t perform for Spain. Put your bias aside and face the facts


FOKvothe

Thaigo has never really performed on the national team.


kadoooosh

Thiago was never as good for the NT as he was for his clubs and Gravenberch basically sat on the bench since August.


julesvr5

>Robert Lewandowski on Choupo-Moting's form: "If the team plays well, for the striker it's easier to score goals. He's scored goals, he's in good form. I know him, he's a good guy. I worked with him at Bayern. I know he's going through a good run." [@marca] >Lewandowski: "I'm really pleased he's scored some goals but the season is long. All I can say is good luck and I hope he keeps up this form into the rest of the season" Lol, as if Choupo is benefitting from the team. We are benefitting from Choupo much more. Since he plays regularly up front we improved massively. Not because of his goals and assists (at least not only) but also because of his immense hold up play and build up/passing. Feels like Lewy acts a little salty here


arnoldbread

>Feels like Lewy acts a little salty here Right now there's such a team unity, with Choupo as oppose to with Lewandowski. Its fun to know anyone can be on the teamsheet now


[deleted]

[удалено]


joyridah

Lewy did a lot for Bayern, but the attack became too focused on him, with everyone trying to feed the ball to him so he could score goals. With Choupo, you have a player that is willing to hold up the play, and pass the ball to a teammate so that they can score…much less selfish play and we can see the impact it’s having on the team, namely Gnabry and Musiala Lewy back in the lineup makes us far too one dimensional..and to be quite honest, while a great striker, he wasn’t a great team player..too selfish, didn’t celebrate when others would score before him, and never really felt like he was committed to the club


ObjectiveZlatan

Choppou played two knockout games with club and scored/played well in both. Our attack around him is not tunnel visioned like it used to be. ​ With Lewandowski we had a guy which our attack would get tunnel visioned in seeking and he wasn't particularly a big game player.


qonoxzzr

Cmon


julesvr5

Cmon what? Lewy would change our whole play again to the worse. We are scoring goals over goal without him and everybody scores, not just him. We are less dependent. I don't see a reason why someone would like to put Lewy back into the team and disrupt our offense again. Not saying he isn't a good striker, but he wouldn't fit our style anymore.


qonoxzzr

It‘s not like the team as a whole is playing a lot better behind him. We are way more stable defensive as when he was still with us. He is kinda doing the same things like Choupo does but better, while being more egoistic (a point where Choupo is better imo). Please tell me what Choupo offers what Lewy did not. I don‘t get the hate boner for Lewandowski as a player. He was so crucial for us and just because he behaved like he did (which was indeed shameful) people now prefer Choupo over him.


ObjectiveZlatan

Yeah Lewandowski really showed up when it mattered and totally didn't go on diva strikes every time a wage renegotiation came up.


jsnamaok

Sorry, remind me when did Lewy go on strike?


ObjectiveZlatan

Strike was the wrong term but him and his agent leaking out new to the media was embarrassing ahead of decisive UCL matches. Happened twice, once in 2018, once before Villareal. Both times he was awful.


Bearclawed81

He scored our lone goal against Villarreal. I don't disagree with what you've said but singling him out as awful when really the entire team was, and he was the only who scored is a little disingenuous.


ObjectiveZlatan

He was terrible in both games and should have been sent off. He was garbage. Muller actually got into situations to score and Coman and Sane created. Lewandowski not having chances that game was on him. He scored (in a play created by Muller and Coman pressing) but he was dead silent before and after that.


julesvr5

*Someone doesn't suck Lewys dick "HATER BONER, YOU ARE JUST SALTY! HE GAVE SO MUCH TO THE CLUB, WE SHOULD BE THANKFUL TO HIM!!!!" No thanks, already have no intention anymore to discuss further when it's obviously useless.


Thraff1c

That's a bit of an overreaction.


julesvr5

I'm so fucking tired of this hole hate shit. I'm making reasonable points why Lewy wouldn't fit so well anymore into the team and what do I get back? "mimimi hate boner against lewy" no fuck this shit. Everything that doesn't fit people's opinions these days is instantly hate and it's fucking stupid.


qonoxzzr

Where is your reasonable point when I ask you what exactly Choupo offers what Lewy did not?


Thraff1c

And he made good points against your arguments, and you concentrated on the one half sentence that doesn't.


qonoxzzr

What? Where did I suck Lewys dick? All I said was that I prefer him over Choupo and asked you why you prefer Choupo? I wouldn‘t want Lewy back because of his person, but I‘d take the player back in a heartbeat.


hskch

I often see that dude commenting funny shits but damn never seen he would get this emotional 😂

Damyxs

Fun games today in the Bundesliga, lets see who can hang on the second spot. Cant stand Leipzig being there.


GroupUpWithMei

Unreal that Gnabry has 10 goals and 10 assists in 23 appearances… really doesn’t tell the whole story. Think he has genuinely been good the last few games though and long May that continue.


LordSW93

Not to pile on the guy but it's especially crazy he has those stats when you look at the number of chances/potential assists he misses in a game. If he were to improve in his finishing/last pass, his numbers would be insane. But it's great that he's got those goal involvements even if during the games you don't feel like he's that impressive


Quaestionaius

Since his Bremen days, he consistently scores 10+ goals every season( that just in the Bundesliga alone) and almost the same amount assists too.


lambo9797

Gnabry is quite the enigma. On his low, he can’t seem to pass for the life of him but when good he get’s a 10/10 l’equipe rating.


Spockodile

*Serge Gnigma*


irun_mon

Hes got 13 scorers in since coming back from the international break (around 10 games), so its been more than just a few games.


GroupUpWithMei

More than a few games that he’s scored - but not necessarily more than a few games I’ve felt he’s had good/great performances. Gnabry often finds himself on the score sheet after having a relatively bad game…


irun_mon

I prefer a player who scores even when he is having a bad game, than a player who rarely scores even when he's having a good game (coman 🫣)


GroupUpWithMei

Absolutely! As do I. However given Gnabry has better stats than Sane and almost as good stats as Musiala this season it doesn’t paint the whole picture! I hope Gnabry can be involved more in the build up, doesn’t disappear as often or lose possession as often - but keeps his composure in front of goal! That would be ideal for us.


[deleted]

[удалено]


oxtailandpsych

I love Müller but I don’t think he’s should be a sure starter this World Cup. However he is very likely to start under Hansi.


FlyingArab

I would go for this if I were Flick: Neuer Hofmann - fat man - Rüdiger - Günter Kimmich - Goretzka Müller - Musiala - Sané Gnabry


Bruh-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Flick will never drop Müller. I would think Either Sané or Havertz would be sacrificed (hope its havertz, i want a full bayern attack and midfield)


jsnamaok

I would not currently sacrifice Sané for anyone. But I heard Havertz has had a shit run of form recently. I would rather start like this: Musiala - Müller - Sanè Gnabry If we are starting all 4 of them, but I’d like to see what Füllkrug can offer too.


supermember866866

If it comes to Gnabry vs Muller at the wings , Gnabry must win with his form. I really hope it's Muller for striker position ( if not havertz/ fullkrug)


Lauchiger_TV

I'm against Müller as striker. With Füllkrug we have a real striker and in the past Müller as striker has not worked very well


thunderstrucksun

I screamed(without s) so hard after seeing that musiala offside goal


B747Saeed

A world cup without [our maestro](https://twitter.com/asim4000/status/1591543704237576195?s=20&t=7sjezndEmUWNrL-IF2jMXQ) is too fucking sad. I can't handle it. Fuck Enrique.


TheEmperorsWrath

People keep saying Enrique is brilliant, that Spain are among the best teams in the World and it's like... No? They really aren't. Maybe I'm biased because I'm Swedish and Spain was absolute dogshit against us, but like... They have no creativity. They just pass and pass and pass and pass and never do anything. Like in our 0-0 game against them in the Euros, we legit should have won, despite the fact that they had like 95% ball possession


B747Saeed

Yeah. They need a creative player like him to break the defensive lines with his accurate, unexpected passes, just like the one to Kimmich in the buildup for Coman’s goal in the 2020 CL final.


sarovar12

Kimmich and Goretzka gonna run circles around those kids and old man.


Bruh-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Repeat of 2020 Bayern vs Barça i hope.


jonomarkono

The moment they hear Müller's **JAAAAAAA!**, They're gonna have collective PTSD.


Bruh-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Except Busquets, he is too old to remember


NifferEUW

Wait WHAT? Thiago wasnt selected for the world cup?


B747Saeed

No. Apparently Busquets and that little Barcelona kid are better than him.


oxtailandpsych

Thiago’s obviously a great player but he has never really replicated his club form with Spain. It’s not that surprising he’s been left out of the squad.


Bruh-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Gavi is so fucking overrated smh.


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Gavi is miles worse than Thiago. Any Barca youngster is the best player to ever have laced a pair of boots even if both of their legs didn't exist or if they just picked someone at random to fill in because La Masia was having a slow day


Bruh-_-_-_-_-_-_-

Gavi's heatmap shows he generally plays in a much more advanced position than Musiala. But he has 1 goal involvement while Musiala has 22. I think we should stop the Musiala Gavi comparison cz it aint even close. Imo Musiala > Bellingham > Pedri > Gavi. It will be funny to see spain in the group stages compete against Literal monsters in Kimmich and Goretzka with 2 schoolboys


NifferEUW

What an absurd decision.
