Bayern lost at home 5-2 life go hard for dayo kanu. Will he go on exile.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by nyabinghi(m): 8:34pm On Sep 20, 2008|
The first half was everything a Bundesliga fan would expect from the two offensive-minded teams; the flow of play was continuous and played at a breakneck rate.
Early on, the visitors stuck to their strong points, taking the game to Bayern with sustained attacking.
Bremen's efforts nearly paid off as early as the third minute, when a Diego free kick sailed towards Per Mertesacker. Bayern keeper Michael Rensing came off his line, but the ball missed both he and Mertesacker, and almost fell at the feet of an onrushing Marcus Rosenberg.
Amidst a great amount of pressure from Bremen, the home side nearly pulled ahead in the 6th minute. A long-range effort from Bastian Schweinsteiger was partially blocked by Mertesacker, leaving the ball to fall at Luca Toni's feet. Toni's first-touch effort was disappointing, however, the shot swerving well wide.
Toni had a chance to redeem himself 7 minutes later, as Lahm's cross landed straight to the Italian's forehead. Once again, Toni's attempt was not enough, his header falling rather benignly to Tim Wiese's hands.
In an almost ominous manner, the visitors came an inch from taking the lead on 18 minutes. A long, high chip from Diego landed at Claudio Pizarro's feet. The Peruvian striker accelerated past Demichelis and chipped over Rensing, but the ball glanced off the near post.
The visitors finally took the lead on 30 minutes, as Mesut Özil played a perfectly weighted through ball to Rosenberg. The ball forced Martin Demichelis to turn, sacrificing just enough space for Rosenberg to slip through and strike low and past Rensing.
The home side almost immediately created two opportunities to equalized, but failed on both attempts. In the 32’, Luca Toni was played through, but he waited too long to shoot and Naldo saved his side the equalizer with a hard tackle. A minute later, Lucio was found open in the box. His pass found Podolski, whose first touch shot went high and over the bar.
In the 38th minute, Mark van Bommel sent a high ball over the Bremen defense and to a wide open Toni, but the Italian striker’s header was weak and straight to Wiese.
All of Bayern’s missed opportunities would prove costly before the break. On 45 minutes, Özil sent a free kick into the penalty area that whizzed by Sebastian Proedl’s head. Perhaps expecting a deflection from Proedl, Rensing was late to react and dived to his right to save, but he spilled the ball straight to Naldo’s feet. Naldo coolly converted, leaving the score 2-0 to the visitors at the half.
With a mountain to climb, Bayern coach Jürgen Klinsmann opted to field an even more offensive lineup, replacing centre back Daniel van Buyten with central midfielder Tim Borowski.
Following nearly ten minutes of sustained pressure from Bayern, Bremen's counterattack produced a fantastic goal, this time from the dazzling Özil. The ex-Schalke left winger found the ball in the penalty area. Newly substituted Massimo Oddo dropped back, giving Özil just enough room to blast a tremendous shot past Rensing and into the top left corner of the net.
With the deficit now four goals, Bayern appeared mentally defeated. With every opportunity, they simply lacked the sharpness required to pull a goal back. For example, on 57 minutes, an Oddo cross found a wide open Podolski in the penalty area. The German international striker, who converted on two similar volleys during the Euro 2008 tournament, missed horribly wide on this occasion.
On the other end, the visitors made the score 4-0 as Pizarro scored a deserved goal. Rosenberg raced into the penalty area and passed back for Pizarro, who tapped the ball low as Rensing came off his line. The ball went just under Rensing and into the net.
It took just 8 more minutes for Bremen to score their final goal, resulting from a real howler by Rensing. A Diego free kick sailed into the penalty area and towards Mertesacker. Rensing was late to come off his line, but was in position in time to make a play on the ball. He and Mertesacker missed, and this time the ball fell to Rosenberg, who tapped the ball into an open net.
If there was one bright thing to come for the home side, it was the revelation of Tim Borowski as a great offensive player behind the strikers. The German international scored a late brace to make the scoreline a little less distressing for the home side. In the 71st minute, a cross found Oddo wide open on the right side. Oddo played the ball low and straight to a wide open Borowski, whose first touch sent the ball low and into the net as the home side pulled one back.
In the 85th minute, a cross found Luca Toni with his back to the goal. Toni chested the ball to Borowski, who volleyed from the top of the box, sending the ball low and into the left corner of the net.
In the end, it was Bremen’s desire and aggression that defeated a timid and clumsy Bayern side today. The first half saw plenty of opportunities for both sides, but it was Bremen who pressured the home side on both ends of the pitch and left the pitch with a 2-0 halftime lead. After the break, Bayern showed signs of life early, but a lackluster defensive performance and a fantastic goal from Özil effectively ended the competition less than ten minutes after halftime.
0-1 Rosenberg (30)
0-2 Naldo (45)
0-3 Özil (54)
0-4 Pizarro (59)
0-5 Rosenberg (67)
1-5 Borowski (71)
2-5 Borowski (85)
Yellow Cards: Demichelis

Don't do this to Dayokanu.
He has repented!!!!!
How can a team concede 5 goals at HOME??
This was the same poof crucifying Arsenal some months back, bloody ninny!!!
His team was schooled at home by a very good Werder Bremen side.
Thomas Schaaf was SPOT ON with his tactics until he took out the Swedish striker(Markus Rosenberg) and allowed Bayern to score!!!
Bayern was woeful conceding goals a pub team wouldn't have conceded.
Klinsmann should be sacked!!! It was 5-0 to the away team before Bayern scored their goals.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by chamotex(m): 8:38pm On Sep 20, 2008|
Please where is DayoKanu?
I would love to hear what he's going to say for his team.
I wonder wht he will BLAME!!!!!
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by dayokanu(m): 10:19pm On Sep 20, 2008|
We would only blame ourselves for getting into this position
But for the final word,
I take a quote from Van Bommel
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 11:00pm On Sep 20, 2008|
OMG 5-2 at the Allianz Arena this is serious
Please explain what happened today?
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by chamotex(m): 12:24am On Sep 21, 2008|
what else is there to explain than they conceded 5 goals at home
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Hannibal: 12:24am On Sep 21, 2008|
They were thoroughly beaten by the better side.
Don't get me wrong. . . . . . .Bayern had countless shots on goal but they didn't make it count.
Werder Bremen had 5 shots on goal and they scored from it!!!
Thats what u call CLINICAL attempts.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 1:23am On Sep 21, 2008|
So even the Bundesliga is not a surety for Bayern Munich with teams like Schalke04 and Werder around?
Please i want to hear it from the mouth of a Bayern fan
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Ibime(m): 1:30am On Sep 21, 2008|
lol. . . . Dayo, go and hide for a few days till the whole thing settles down.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Hannibal: 1:31am On Sep 21, 2008|
Unless Bayern sack Klinsmann, they ain't winning any title this season.
They are too poor.
Bayern Munich in this league CANNOT finish above Aston Villa.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 1:43am On Sep 21, 2008|
Klinsmann is a good coach me thinks its the players that need some working on
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Ibime(m): 1:43am On Sep 21, 2008|
We can now see that Joachim Lowe was the real force behind Klinsmann in 2006.
Thank God Chelsea didn't make that mistake of appointing him.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Hannibal: 1:49am On Sep 21, 2008|
Bayern's starting XI is not bad at all.
Podolski, Eminem, Klose and Luca Toni, Ribery and Ze Roberto are tested n proven players.
I just feel Klinsmann's man management is dreadful.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by chamotex(m): 1:57am On Sep 21, 2008|
u mean WEST BROM!! im sure that was a typo on your behalf
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 2:11am On Sep 21, 2008|
You cant always blame the coach for every dreadful performance by the squad the players obviously weren't up for it how can a team go 5-0 down at home?
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Hannibal: 2:15am On Sep 21, 2008|
It must be the manager's direful tactics.
How can a team lose 5-0 at home?? They were royally bleeped by Werder.
Blame it on Klinsmann. . . . . .Wenger could get sacked for a performance like that against Fulham.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 2:21am On Sep 21, 2008|
Direful? What where the players doing when goals 1-5 ended up at the back of their net? Why can't it simply be a bad day at the office.Did you not see the goal keeper's howler?
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by Hannibal: 2:25am On Sep 21, 2008|
No keeper is good when his defence gets taken apart.
We saw Cech at the world cup and EURO 2008. . . . . .Does he look like a good goalie to u in those outings.
He was shambolic BUT u cannot blame him. . . . There was no Terry/Carvalho and Essien/Makalele to protect his goal.
Bayern's performance was insipid and the manager shoulda done something to change the tactics.
Worst case scenario, play 9-1-0.
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by A40(m): 2:38am On Sep 21, 2008|
The last goal was just a point of reference when you get beat 5-0 you have to look beyond the manager and x-ray the performance of the entire team its one thing to dish out instructions and its another thing to have them carried out!!
|Re: Bayern Munich Crash Land? by dayokanu(m): 3:08am On Sep 21, 2008|
Even Hannibal is defending Bayern.
I see Klinsi more as a motivator not really great on tactics. Great footballer dont really make great coaches. Pele, Maradona etc
But the awkward ones make better coaches. I wasnt too sure of Klinsi's approach where he brought ln Machines to train players.
Only the last goal was Rensing's fault the others were as a result of flatt footed defending where Ozil and Diego were cutting thru like Hot knife on butter
The pass for the first goal split the defence into half, The second a dead ball and mertesacker and Naldo two guys over 6ft 6 facing Rensing.
The cutback by Ozil for the 3rd even Pizzaro got some of the bootie.
