King David Alaba: The Righteous False Winger

Our first signing arrived yesterday, was presented to the people and is now training with the rest of his new teammates. I know you Bayern fans are lurking to see how we’ll receive him. We see you too.


Dani Ceballos has sustained what appears to be a nasty injury.


Chelsea have reportedly been contacted about taking hazard back.


Are we slowly turning into Juve? we’ve started signing players in their late 20’s and in the last year of their contracts and or on a free transfer. We might continue the trend with Goretzka. Could this be the actual transition that’s been going on and not what we all thought/wanted?


Coman, Kimmich etc are big mad at Bayern about LEEERROOOYY JENKINS Sane earning more money than them. I’d be mad too if an unholy catholic cross merchant earned more money than me. According to BILD, Coman wants to earn 12 MIL net after taxes, he currently earns 12 MIL gross. And Kimmich is now asking for 20 MIL. First off, Kimmich is wild for asking for 20 M’s, but if i knew a catholic cross merchant was earning more than me. I’d probably ask for 30 LOL. So i don’t blame him. But God have mercy! Bayern have obliterated their once perfect wage structure just like Man Utd and are paying for it. Maybe they’ll get on board with the Super League idea? Maybe Uncle Flo wasn’t some power hungry, money grubbing sloth that wants to kill football by bringing more money to the clubs? Bayern were one of the benchmarks for a financially well run club. But since the Hernandez & Sane deals, there seems to be a costly change in their once rigid structure. As a lot of the other players in their age group have sent their devilish, divisive agents back to Bayern’s board table to demand more money for them and to start a circus in the press/media. It’s working so far and Bayern could stand to lose a lot of their top talents. As things will now be harder for them to lure big talents to their ranks without widening their once ultra-rigid wage structure some more. I see this as Karma for what they did to Renato Sanches, and how they almost ruined him by deliberately shelving him and stiffing benfica out of the many clauses they agreed.
