Bayern grand Guardiolas' wish to be the Spain Manager!

Pep Guardiola went into the Bayerns Chairman' office and asked for them to let him go to be the Spain nationals team Manager.
The board asked for a press-conference to explain everything and they already seemed to found the replacement for Guardiola.

Guardiola: Hello everyone, I'd like to thank you all for beeing here! I announce that I'm no longer the Bayern Munich Manager, as they've let me go to be the Spain Manager. I really wanted to take over that Job and it wouldn't be possible to do both jobs with the success Spain and Bayern needs and deserves!
Rummenigge: We are sad that we couldn't convince him that staying here would be the best thing for everyone! We wish Pep all the luck he needs, to be succesful in his new job. We also liked to thank Pep for beeing very succesful at this club and he is always welcomed here!
That's really nice to hear and I'm very sad to leave, but this is a once in a lifetime chance for me and I needed to take it! Bayern Munich will be a special club for me, as I always felt that this club is very similar to a family!
Pep told us about this chance a few weeks ago and we were able to sign a new Manager, whom will be announced at this evening, alongside all our transfers by now. This press-conference is Peps' and therefore we wanted to make a second one, a little bit later today.
I will surely be here a few times to see, how Javier and Thiago are doing, for the spain squad and we will have a nice lunch then and talk about various stuff!
Sadly Uli still is in prison and isn't able to attend today, but I will surely visit him as soon, as he's home!
Thank you everyone for attending and Good-Bye!

Bayern present new Manager

Rummenigge: Hello everyone for beeing here again. I will start with what everyone is waiting for, please Welcome our new Manager Lothar Matthäus!
Matthäus: Hello, I'm back!
We wanted to give Lothat Matthäus the chance he deserves to prove everyone his managerial skills, he surely posseses! Lothar already showed his playing skills at this club and is Germanys all time Player with the most caps!
I want to show everyone, that my private life won't effect my managerial skills and I'm very pleased by the chance Karl-Heinz (Rummenigge) and Franz (Beckenbauer) giving me!
I already have a lot in my mind which will help this team, to hold up the form they had under Peps' reign! We won't be focused on one tactics, this i can tell you right now, we want to be very flexible, so that no Manager can now what we will do in the game!
Thats it for now, as Lothar now is going to join our new players to make some pictures with them!

New signings and departures!


Matthäus gets Goalkeeper!

Bayern Munich new Manager Lothar Matthäus is only one day in charge and he already bought his first player in order to be flexible in his starting eleven!

Victor Valdes is right now in reha to recover from a serious knee injury, which outlined him for over 6 months! Matthäus is sure that Valdes will reclaim his level he had in the first months the last season!
Matthäus said that "Valdes is the second best goalkeeper in the world! Right after Manuel, it will be interesting to see, how and if both of them can co-exist in a squad.
Valdes choosed to sign for Bayern over some high profiled teams, such as Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester City, Paris St. Germain, AS Monaco and both Milan clubs!

Pre-Season Update

It all started like we all expectet and we've been undefeated for the first 7 friendly games and the team played very well, but then there was the Real Madrid friendly and it all went downhill from there!

Our first competition game of the year was the DFL-Supercup against Borussia Dortmund and we started very good and Thomas Müller scored the lead, but then we didn't even had one more chance for the next 67 minutes and we lost that game and we didn't deserved anything out of that match!
We really need to work on the defensive movements!

Next game is the DFB-Pokal match against Neckersulmer SU and we really need to show that we can dominate a game and show that we can mount a challenge at the League title!

August Update

First month in charge and the fans didn't seem to get warm with me! I tried to get the best out of the team and wanted to make every game a spectacle to watch!
We won all our home games

It is unbelievebal that we can't win away, we could give that points away if nothing will change! We don't have a chance even against teams like Augsburg, Paderborn or anyone else, if we won't stop our individual mistakes!
Thomas Müller was incredible this first month, as he is fighting with Arjen Robben for the first eleven spot and he seems to have the upperhand!


What a match that was, after 30 minutes we already had a 5-0 lead and we could've won even higher, if we hadn't wastet so many chances in the second half, it looked like our lads were really hard trying to keep the motivation up.
The next round will see us go against Bundesliga opponent 1.FC Köln!

Champions League

We've been lucky in this years group draw, as we had been drawn alongside portugese side Sporting, russian side CSKA Moscow and czech side Viktoria Plzen.
I suggest that we gain promotion to the next round very easily!
