    Does it even matter. He's five years older now and not the player he was 5 years ago.
    They'll add Coutinho (on loan), (probably) Mandzu and Cuisance (Gladbach).
    While Dortmund got better this window, IMO Bayern got worse (Ribeiry, Robben, Hummels). And this is only the Bundesliga competition. Their main opponnents internationally got better, too.

    Interesting. While I also believe that Paderborn will come in last you clearly have two really dark horses in there....

    His dark horses might be Rot-Weiss Essen and Waldhof Mannheim. LOL, yeah, I've seen that, too.

    I guess if you only watch the top 3 teams you don't really need to know there's only 18 teams in the league.

    Anyway, Augsburg's GK is playing like he bet against his own team. Maybe Augsburg will lose 8-1 again.

    According to Uli the roster is complete now. So, no Mandzukic.

    It’s a penalty because it’s a foul in the box.

    I doubt this is Bayern's thinking, but their academy & youth buys in recent years have left them with a lot of kids who will soon be making the jump to the pro level that (for the first time in ages) have Bayern-caliber talent.

    Now not all of them will end up Bayern caliber in their primes and even some who do will need to breakthrough to the senior level elsewhere, but the potential is certainly there...with the likes of Batista-Meier, Dajaku, Davies, Cuisance, Mai, Arp, Früchtl & Malik Tillman...for them to find multiple future starters in that group...especially those first 4.

    Are you telling me that you consistently watch the 17th place team against the 18th place team? Incredibly smug attitude on your part. You must be an expert because you remembered that there are 18 teams in the league, instead of 20.

    Based on Bayerns transfer activities it looks like they accept this as a transitional period where they are OK with competing for the domestic titles but know that in the CL the QF is probably the end of the road.

    Not all people who know theres 18 teams are experts, but all people familiar with the league know theres 18 teams.

    If you want to try to talk down to me because I said something incorrect, have at it. I've posted in this thread for years, and watch close to every team play multiple times during the course of the season. There's no trophy to win for catching a slight error. You probably make them as well, but maybe you feel more powerful for talking down to me because I made an error.

    Just eat the L Pavel. Forgetting that the BuLi only has 18 teams, when expanding it to 20 is a (seemingly) annual debate, is a significant enough faux pas to be ribbed for.

    So much for that Union boycott, Leipzig scored like 30 seconds after it ended and they are getting hammered

    Pavel, why don't you just smile? There's no need for an argument. I make the most mistakes here and sometimes I laugh at myself the next day.

    I was incorrect, but I'm not going to stand for this guy trying to shame me because of it. I'm sure he says incorrect stuff, and no one has shamed him. I didn't react adversely to anyone other than the person who tried to talk down to me about it.

    By the way I didin't pick Essen and Mannheim randomly. Back in the day Essen was a much bigger club than BvB and Dietmar Hopp tried to invest in Waldhof and after they denied he put his money into Hoffenheim.
