    More noise surrounding Niklas Süle’s uncertain future in Bavaria.

    Bavarian Podcast Works: Preview Show — Bayern Munich vs. Bayer Leverkusen (Hinrunde)

    Bavarian Podcast Works: Preview Show — Bayern Munich vs. Bayer Leverkusen (Hinrunde)

    Bayern Munich is back in action this weekend against Bayer Leverkusen in what should be an extremely fun match-up between two of the Bundesliga’s most exciting teams.
    On one side, you have Bayern Munich, who was steamrolling through all competition until butting heads with Eintracht Frankfurt. On the other side, there is a young and hungry Leverkusen side with one of the league’s most exciting players: Florian Wirtz.
    Needless to say, this should be a battle. Here is what we have on tap:

    The recent form of both sides.

    Admiration for each team’s phenom: Jamal Musiala and Wirtz.

    A guess on Julian Nagelsmann’s lineup.

    A prediction on the match.

    As always, thanks for your support and let us know what you think!

    Bavarian Podcast Works Postgame Show: Germany beats North Macedonia 0-4

    Bavarian Podcast Works Postgame Show: Germany beats North Macedonia 0-4

    If there was ever going to be a barometer to measure if Hansi Flick’s Germany is indeed better than Joachim Löw’s Germany, it would be this. Under their former manager, Germany had lost to North Macedonia (albeit a North Macedonia with Goran Pandev); that loss was Germany’s first in roughly two decades in a World Cup qualifier. The opposition was the same today and as long as Romania was able to beat Armenia, what was at the stake for Germany was World Cup qualification for Qatar 2022.
    Hansi Flick made some notable changes. As Antonio Rüdiger was absent due to injury, he inserted Thilo Kehrer into the heart of the defense next to Niklas Süle, played David Raum in the left-back slot and replaced Jonas Hofmann with Lukas Klostermann for the right back slot. He also left out Leroy Sané in favor of Kai Havertz for this one.

    Bavarian Podcast Works: Preview Show — Germany vs North Macedonia (World Cup Qualifiers)

    Bavarian Podcast Works: Preview Show — Germany vs North Macedonia (World Cup Qualifiers)

    Germany are heading into their second game of the international break. This time, they’ll be facing North Macedonia, who haven’t exactly been easy opponents lately (the 2-1 loss comes to mind). Granted, they now have a coach who can actually make the right decisions and field the right players, but a lot hinges on the forwards being able to convert their chances.
    It is almost certain that Germany will go into this game pressing from the start, and we will so no dearth of Bayern players, with 8 players getting called up (with Neuer out, that leaves Flick with 7 top quality Bayern options). Let’s hope Germany can continue with their winning streak. Here are the talking points:

    Remembering Germany’s time under Loew and that sad loss to North Macedonia

    A look at the two teams: main options, threats, etc.

    Defensive options, and who will get the nod

    The Timo Werner situation, and who starts in attack

    Overall lineup and scoreline prediction

    Bavarian Podcast Works Postgame Show: Talking points from Germany’s 2-1 win over Romania

    Bavarian Podcast Works Postgame Show: Talking points from Germany’s 2-1 win over Romania

    Germany managed to scrape a win against an extremely well-drilled Romania side in what becomes the first problematic game of Hansi Flick’s short tenure. Starting with five Bayern Munich players in the lineup, the Germans went down early to a goal by Ianis Hagi and struggled to stamp their authority on the game. While Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller eventually brought home all three points, questions will be asked about the nature of this performance. 
    Here are our talking points from the game:

    How Hansi Flick got his lineup and tactics completely wrong. 

    Giving credit to Romania for a strong performance at the back. 

    Why Timo Werner and Marco Reus should not be starting for Germany anymore — at least in the role they have currently. 

    The problem with Germany’s fullbacks at the moment. 

    Some lovely Thomas Muller propaganda, which we always love to hear. 

    Some experiments Hansi Flick needs to make in the upcoming games. 

    As always, we love your feedback and appreciate all the support!

Fave Bayern podcast

This is my favorite Bayern podcast, and all the hosts are pretty knowledgeable. I like that they rotate the hosts so we get a variety of different opinions. My only criticism is with Ineednoname. While I mostly enjoy listening to his analyses, he’s incredibly pessimistic. It’s also hard to listen to any episodes with him that involve any other hosts, because he constantly interrupts everyone else. It’s disrespectful and I hope he works on that.

Großartige Show

My only criticism would be that the show is too short in length. Otherwise, solid, informative and fun content.

Bring back Indeednoname! I really enjoyed his take on the transfer strategy and overall status of the club. He sounds very well informed and skilled on the mic.
