This being my first blog here I thought I would update the world on where FC Bayern is right now.
Bayern blasted out of the start of the Bundesliga season with 3 wins totalling 10 goals for and none against. The Reds continued their winning ways without losing a game until the 13th week. It appears that 13 has not been their lucky number as of late (leave of Ballack). The teams success has been mixed since week 13. Granted the team has not suffered another loss but a handful of draws with quesitonable Bunesliga clubs' like Duisburg, Berlin and Dortmund have the left the most successful club In german history exchaning the league leadership a few times.
As it stands now Munich is on top of the Bundesliga with 50 points--a 7 point lead over chasing Bremen and 8 point lead over northern rivals Hamburger SV. But Bayern's success hasn't been restricted to league play. With a miserable 4th place finish last year the Reds earned themselves a spot in UEFA--Europes' second class tournament to the Champions League. Bayern were undefeated in the group stage and only suffered their first loss this week to Belgian giants Anderlecht. However, Bayern's impressive 5-0 away victory over Anderlecht meant Bayenr took the home-away series with a 6-2 victory on aggregate and thus propelling FC Bayern to the UEFA quarter finals.
Returning to the Bundesliga we see the Bavarian record holders earning comfortable wins in the DFP Pokal--the cross nation tournament like the FA Cup in England. Bayern face VL Wolfsburg in the semi's of the Pokal and could go on to the finals in Berlin this February. If the Reds continue their winning ways they will completed the German treblle--winning the league, winning the Pokal, winning the Liga Pokal. If they get all three they could go for one more and connect four with a UEFA championship under their belts as well. Only time will tell if the Bavarian giants will complete a remarkable task this year after such a poor finish last season.
