What Sommer Can Bring To Bayern…

With Manuel Neuer sidelined for a lengthy period, Bayern Munch needed to figure out a quick-fix plan for their goalkeeping department. A massive priority indeed. Fortunately for the Bavarian giants, they managed to acquire the signature of Swiss International Yann Sommer. Sommer is no stranger to the Bundesliga having spent close to a decade with Borussia Mönchengladbach where he made over 270 appearances, which included impressive performances against Bayern. Head coach Julien Nagelsmann stated that a new goalkeeper would only need a short period of time to fit in, and Sommer showed that he was ready to step up to the plate, securing his new club a 1-1 draw against Nagelsmann’s former team, RB Leipzig.

Sebastien Haller finally made his return to the Bundesliga after a hefty stint on the sidelines, receiving treatment for testicular cancer. Dortmund faces Augsburg, who gave them a real run for their money. A match of constant back and forth, which was closed off by USA National Gio Reyna’s wonder strike. A fitting return for the Ivorian international.

On the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection, Sebastien Haller made his long-awaited return to the league with a win, Bayern Munich draw 1-1 with their new keeper in Yann Sommer and this past match day was an impressive run for the home team!

Dortmund and Bayern's Concerns Revealed…

After a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to cancer treatment, Ivorian striker and Dortmund forward Sebastien Haller has rejoined his club in a 'mini camp' ahead of the season restart. The 28-year-old was diagnosed with testicular cancer in June 2022 and is setting his sights on a return, in January 2023. With Haller's return, another Dortmund striker, in Youssoufa Moukoko, has yet to renew his contract which should bring some concerns to BVB as he is a talent most wanted.

Bayern Munich has done some interesting business with their latest signing. After concerns around Neuer's, Sane's, and L.Hernandez's absence, the Bavarian Giants urgently need to sign a player, and ageing Daley Blind was top on their list. The former Manchester United and Ajax Amsterdam defender signs for Bayern until the summer of 2023 with an option for one additional season. Is this the right move for Bayern?

Germany Keep Flick!

Bayern Munich is showing its national dominance, still having 6 players in the 2022 FIFA World Cup - with a few for France, one for Croatia, and even one star in Morocco in Mazraoui. The chances are good for Bayern Munich to have a World Cup winner in the locker room.

So who will now be between the sticks for Bayern?

The captains agreed that they would support LGBTQ rights by wearing these armbands, but FIFA has restricted this by threatening point docking, yellow cards, and sanctions!
