    No they were expected to struggle. They are currently leading Stuttgart 2-1 with 5 minutes to go which would send them second. The lads in my local are dreaming of europe :laugh:.

    Edit: Final score, Hannover - Stuttgart 2-1.

    Then u missed a lot of great football :) Some say the best ever seen :)

    At least Im reading Bayern played well. I still hope they can catch up. I often like to go for the underdog for some season and this season Bayern is that!

    So zippy sorry if I may be repeating. But once again I am just wondering, what the hell is wrong with Bayern? I concluded sometime last season that Van Gaal isnt good for Bayern, but that quickly changed in the second half of the season. But I think it was largely due to Robben's amazing form. This year without him, Bayern look so much weaker. Im not sure why players like Muller who was outstanding in the WC, have been below par, and Kroos who is rated so highly, doesnt seem to fit his reputation. And Ribery keeps saying hes not happy under Van Gaal?

    A - Then some haven't seen much football, despite the fact that Barcelona played superbly.

    B - We have had a lot of injuries (at one point 8 of the first team), Ribery has only just got back to form after being injured. Today we didn't have a single fit striker so Müller had to play up front.
    Müller isn't playing badly but he is still young it was inevitable he couldn't keep up last season's form without a blip or two. Of course we miss Robben, any team would but he will be back in January and is already in full training. Kroos is still settling in after returning from Leverkusen but is playing quite well. Franck Ribery is happy, he simply said he wants the freedom to move around the pitch more.
    He scored two in midweek and one today so he's doing fine.
    As for van Gaal, not buying a defender in summer was a mistake but on the whole we are very happy with him as trainer.

    In the centre of Bayern's crest, what do those little white diamonds set against a blue background represent?

    The flag of Bavaria is like that I think. Even BMW have a similar logo.

    Yes it is the Bavarian colours and part of Bavaria's coat of arms.

    P.S. A Bavarian always says white and blue never blue and white.

    Well but these injuries and blips and failure to sign players have almost lost Bayern the title already...although to be fair, Dortmund has come out from nowhere and just cant stop winning games which is I guess none of Bayern's fault! :p

    Interesting to see that Bayern fans demonstrated against signing Manuel Neuer yesterday too.

    Bayern rumoured to be signing Hoffenheim's Luis Gustavo in the winter break in exchange for €10 million and Klose.

    Im really in surprise at Gladbach being bottom

    They have some decent players there

    Bradley impressed me at the World Cup for U.S.A and i was surprised when he chose Gladbach over a number of other clubs who wanted him
    Arango for years at Mallorca was one of the Spanish's leagues most underrated players and it was a real coup for Gladbach to sign him when they did
    Marco Reus is quite a promising youngster
    I have also heard good raps about the keeper Logan Bailly and Karim Matmour.

    Wolfsburg fought back from 2 down to get a 2-2 draw today at Hoffenheim, wonder how much longer they will persist with McClaren, he does need time but given the money spent this summer and the players they already had at the club i would have thought Champions League would have been the minimum expectation this season.

    Schalke won their 3rd straight game 3-0 against Cologne and end the first half of the year on a high.

    Good news for Bayern and the chasing pack too as Frankfurt defeat Dortmund 1-0 today. A chance to reduce the gap that must be taken by Bayern.

    I've got to say Zippy i'm very suprised by how relaxed you are considering your team are having such a crap season so far.

    Do you represent the mood of Bayern fans as a whole or are the rest of them a bit more restless?

    I can't imagine fans of the big clubs in England or Italy being so laid back!

    (p.s. I'm not criticising you or having pop, just curious as to why a fan of a big club is so laid back)

    Rumour has it that he could well have been out had they lost yesterday, so Dzeko literally saved him at the last minute with his 90th minute equaliser.

    Well we have had a lot of injuries, at one point 8 of the first team, Robben has missed the entire first half of the season, Ribery has only just returned, we have only one fit striker (Gomez).
    On top of that we haven't been playing that badly, we just haven't finished teams off when we had them on the ropes. We were the best side over 90 minutes against Dortmund, we battered Schalke for an hour yet somehow lost both games.
    We are still in the cup and comfortably won our group in the CL, (Dortmund are out of the cup and out of europe).

    We have a great squad when fit, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Lahm, Ribery, Kroos etc are all tied to long contracts and I'm sure that we will finish in the top three. Catching BVB will be very difficult but we can go one year without the title and not chuck the toys out the pram.

    I'm not one for howling for the trainer's head. The fans are totally behind van Gaal and the board tbh, I've heard very little dissent other than everyone calling for a couple of new defenders in the winter break.
    We all expect a big improvement in the second half of the season.
