Bayern trashed Bochum 7-0. They're winning their 10th, no doubt.
Sadly yes. I don't see any team that could challenge them. Leipzig are in a terrible shape after Bayern taking everything good they had. I seriously doubt Wolfsburg good form will last and i have no faith in coach van Bommel and Dortmund have too many weaknesses to pose a serious challenge to Bayern.

No width. Dortmund has been trying it because of a supposed lack of wingers and results have been mixed. You need players good in tight spaces, quick thinking and solid close control, like Ibra and sneijder.

I respond to this in here because it's more suited for this thread. Rose has gone for a diamond because he has no other choice. Dortmund don't have enough wingers to play with 4-2-3-1/4-3-3. They have Hazard who can play on both sides, young Knauff who doesn't even impress at Dortmund II and that's it. Malen is a forward and not a winger, Reus can't play as a winger anymore and Brandt hasn't played as a winger in ages and he wasn't even that good in the first place. The only alternative would be switching to 3-5-2 but they don't have the squad depth in defence to do it and Meunier had really suffered as a wingback last season so i don't think it would be a good idea.

Hazard, Reyna, Wolf, Guerreiro, Reus and Brandt can fill in as inverted wingers ala Gotze/Insigne/Depay. Malen is fast and has good dribbling skill. It's not perfect but it's good enough width IMO. I mean how are RB managing with Nkunku and Olmo as wide players? I don't know why Dortmund coaches have to over complicate things, season is already a bust smh

First loss of the season for Bayern. Huge win for a struggling Eintracht in Bavaria. Kostic scored the winner while he assisted first goal.

Performing great against Bayern is enough to make me buy Kostić.

Go seek fights on Twitter if you're so bored. I'm not interested.

@Candreva Crosses let’s try and add a little more to the conversation then face palms please.

I’m sure you two can get along.
One day he replies to my posts about not wanting to talk about hyperbole conversation and the next day he does the same shit. Then when getting called out he proceeds to blame me for seeking a "fight", this surely deserves more than one :palm: Hipsters are really hard to deal with especially when they're ironically called Bestrd.

:palm:

Lucas Hernandez is facing charges or something like that
Here's the story.

Lucas Hernandez: France defender gets six-month jail term​

French international footballer and Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez has been given a six-month prison term by a Spanish court for breaking a restraining order in 2017.

Hernandez, 25, must appear in court in Madrid on Tuesday. He has appealed against the sentence.

Restraining orders had been imposed on him and his girlfriend, Amelia Ossa Llorente, after a violent argument.

But they were seen returning to Spain together after getting married.

After his court appearance, Hernandez will have 10 days to report to prison voluntarily. He will be allowed to choose the jail where he serves his sentence.

The restraining orders were handed down after he and Ms Llorente had a fight in 2017, though neither had pressed charges. Ms Llorente was taken to hospital with minor injuries. Hernandez was convicted of domestic violence against her.

Ms Llorente also received 31 days' community service for violence, assault and damage to property.

Hernandez had been given a suspended six-month prison term in 2019 for breaking his restraining order. His appeal against it was denied.
Hernandez, a World Cup winner in 2018, was in the French team which won the Nations League final against Spain on Sunday.

That game is why I find it hard to get into Bundesliga. That team is supposed to be one of Bayern’s competitors. 5-0 in the first half? That’s not enjoyable for me as a neutral.
