1. Bayern are not perfect Last night's game showed that Bayern Munich may not be as perfect as their impressive results suggest. In the 8th minute, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain made a direct charge forward and he took on Dante for pace. The Brazilian had to commit a bookable offence to stop the Ox. On the [.
Bayern Munich introduced a slightly changed 4-2-3-1 formation from their last encounter. Javi Martinez replaced Jerome Boateng at the back. Bastian Schweinsteiger partnered Thiago Alcantara in midfield. Phillip Lahm played the whole game at the right back. Mario Gotze was flanked by Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben, with Mario Mandzukic as the striker.
Lukas Podolski has blasted Arsenal level at his former club Bayern Munich. The Gunners forward got away with what looked like a blatant push on Bayern skipper Philipp Lahm, and he took full advantage. Poldi fired the ball in at Manuel Neuer's near post.

Arsenal will take on Bayern Munich in tonight's crucial Champions League last 16 second leg, with the Gunners needing two goals in the imposing Allianz Arena without reply to force extra time against the reigning European Champions.
Arsenal don't necessarily need an early goal to beat Bayern Munich in tomorrow's Champions League last-16 second league, according to manager Arsene Wenger. The Gunners need to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg, but Wenger indicated that he won't be overly concerned if his side don't strike in the opening stages.
In the first leg when these sides met at the Emirates, Arsenal started well but the complexion of the game changed after Mesut Ozil's penalty was saved by his Germany international team-mate Manuel Neuer. Since then, even his manager admitted that the miss took a lot out of the playmaker's mental fitness.
Arjen Robben says Bayern Munich still have to produce a top performance to see off Arsenal in this week's Champions League last-16 tie. The reigning champions go into the home leg with a 2-0 advantage, but Robben insists the job is not done yet. He said: "It is going to be a very tough one. [...]
It seems that Mesut Ozil is coming under fire from all angles at the minute, but the Arsenal fans need to show our club record signing that we are behind him all the way with a rousing and determined show of support at the Emirates today. It seems to me just one more example of [...]
Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil and Manchester United's Tom Cleverley might like to form a group therapy meeting. The Gunners star was booed and whistled by home supporters during Germany's friendly win over Chile last night. Cleverley's name was booed when it was read out over the Wembley PA system.
Mesut Ozil shrugs off criticism with "I don't care!" by Ash Arsenal's German international Mesut Ozil has sensationally swiped back at the media and fans' criticism of him with a response that shows how he clearly isn't affected by criticism. Ozil has come under a lot of pressure since Christmas, rightly or wrongly, because his [.
Arsenal fans know that club manager Arsene Wenger is not like most managers. His style has never been to blast the players with a halftime hairdryer, criticise the players publicly or put pressure on them to perform. Many would like him to be a bit more like that sometimes, but I am not going to [...
Chelsea attacker Andre Schurrle joined Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski for a flight to Germany ahead of their national team's friendly against Chile. And friendly appears to be the operative word, not only because of the amicable travel arrangements of players from both London clubs, but mainly because of how far up [.

Schalke wonderkid Julian Draxler has refused to rule out a move to European champions Bayern Munich.

Manchester United manager David Moyes was in Germany last night to watch Freiburg's game against Hertha Berlin. Young Freiburg centre-back Matthias Ginter was the subject of his scouting mission, according to reports. The 20-year-old is rated at £10m and is considered one of Germany's hottest young defensive talents.
As if he's not under enough pressure at his current club, David Moyes is now coming under fire for a decision he made as Everton manager. Defender Shkodran Mustafi has handed a Germany call-up and is now in contention for a place in Joachim Low's World Cup squad. The 21-year-old was on Everton's books until [.

Manchester United, irrespective of their league position this season, is expected to spend heavily next summer to bolster their squad. The Red Devils will be mainly focusing on improving the central midfield department, as it needs an immediate surgery.
The World Cup will dominate television sets this summer and per usual, most of the elite European nations (as well as a few South American teams) will be considered as favorites, or at the very least serious contenders. There'll be lofty expectations placed on teams like Italy, England, Germany and defending champion Spain.
With all apologies to 30 Rock and David Schwimmer, this title is really a Germanic question asking wazzup with possible USMNT recruit Julian Green. Of course, Klinsi only has the second best answer for now - but we'll take it. - Greg Seltzer
