    Really? Been linked with Arsenal in the past so could be a late runner for that.

    Yeah I saw that coming. Rangnick is a control freak, he is even responsible for the methods used in the training sessions. RB is the team with the second highest investment in the league the past few seasons and 6th place is not enough for that.

    The whole construct reminds me of Chelsea (youth farm teams, weak managers, overdemanding boss, rich foreign owner), only on a Bundesliga budget and playing style, e.g. pressing like mad.

    Arsenal now, or Bayern next year. Obvious Leipzig will snatch up Rose from Salzburg.

    I was hoping he'd do better than he did at Leipzig but I'm interested in seeing where he ends up next.

    I like Rose's style so it'll be interesting to see how he does. I see him in the same mould as Schmidt and Hasenhuttl.

    I don't see the fuzz about him. "Sacking" him is reasonable, as he's not the guy to get Leipzig to the next level. I could see him join FFM.

    He's an interesting choice to say the least. . . . An attacking manager unlike the Croat Mourinho taking over at Bayern.

    Has just won the Swiss league with Young Boys (their first championship since 1986) . . . 13 points clear with one match left. Also has a chance of the double in the Swiss cup final on 27 May.

    Here he is scoring against his new club in 1994.

    That’s pretty remarkable as Basel seem to dominate that league

    Great appointment by Frankfurt, I was worried they would go for Bilic of all people:houllier:

    Meanwhile, Favre to Dortmund is all but confirmed. Favre said last week those are rumours, but Watzke has come out and said they know who they are getting and now, the usually reliable German press is reporting that Favre has vetoed signing Lichtsteiner on a free.

    Lichtsteiner was reported to be as good as done and he personally confirmed talks today, but said they didn't come together. Since the Dortmund bosses wanted him clearly, the reason for that being a veto by Favre is highly likely.

    Favre likes some experienced players in his teams like Stranzl or Raffael, but he is also a big developer of young talent and I could easily see why having two RB in their mid-30s would not fit to his future vision for Dortmund.

    I am now hoping for the confirmation of Balotelli to Dortmund, that would guarantee some very exciting years in one way or another and he is the better choice than Batshuayi anyway. No big injury, free transfer vs 60m for half a season of perfomances, better technically, great under Favre etc. Make it happen!:drool:

    Anyone watch the play off tonight? Only saw it from 3-1 (tuned in the moment Malli scored actually) but thought Kiel played quite well and they really should've made the score 3-2 with the chances they missed near the end.

    Still got a chance if they score first on Monday.

    Guess Wolfsburg are staying up again, but they are gonna be the next Hamburg in the near future. They are always on the edge.

    Actually Wolfsburg played pretty good the first 60 to 70 minutes and you saw the differences between a team that should fight for Europe and not for relegation and a 2nd league team. But somehow they did not keep that up for the last 20 minutes.

    DFB Pokal final.

    Very much looking forward to this and although the heart says Eintracht the head goes with Bayern. I expect a defeat but in the hope that Bayern have to work hard for their victory. If Eintracht do win then I will win €150 from the bookies.

    :)

    What a finish that was under pressure, poor stuff from James to loose the ball in that situation but great pressing as well from Frankfurt.

    Thiago? Do you mean the pass to James? That was by Sule. I think its more the credit to team effort by Frankurt to close him down so high up the pitch, i don't think Bayern have expected this.

    Just tuned in after the FA Cup & saw the opening goal - Nice finish that! Rooting for Frankfurt, because y'know, underdogs n all.

    Close from Muller.

    Just tuned in, was certain Bayern would be up by 2 goals already. This is great, should be an exciting game now.

    My Bayern autocorrect kicked in, from seeing Thiago give the ball away so often. :wenger:

    Another assist this season by Kimmich, what a fantastic player he is. Hope he plays well in the WC.

    Woah was just waiting for Bayern to score then this happens.

    nvm. VAR interruption. No goal.

    Cheeky edit: Goal after all. Frankfurt might win this now. 7 minutes to go.

    Don't quote me before the edit. :p

    I saw the ball bounce in to his hand and just assumed since it hit the hand. Edit has been made :angel:

    Long ball over the top, too high a line from the Bayern defense.
