The difference was that we were always behind Dortmund and we needed a goal...and they just defended and used counter attacks.
They hit their goals at the right time and after that they could play their own game.
So you are saying that we should play counter attack after we were a goal down and playing at home?
You really cant do much when you need a goal at home and when a team like Dortmund knows how to defend collectively. Either you are lucky and score like that Gustavo goal or you are searching for room where you cant find it.
I am 100% sure if that Gustavo goal was the first goal at that match and we were 1 goal up...we would win that game.
But sometimes things just dont go your way.

Some guys explained it really well a few months ago but I still watch Allianz Arena's field and I can't believe it is as big as Giuseppe Meazza for example. It looks much smaller. I was watching Dortmund game and it was like if there wasn't any space to play in. But in Giuseppe Meazza there was a lot of space
It is because of the camera position.
Few days ago I watched a game [I think it was a West Ham game] and the pitch was huge compared to ours...but it really isnt
...we have the biggest pitch dimensions allowed.

He played Van Buyten during the whole first half of the season and I think that everyone could see that he was the one to blame in almost every goal we conceded
He played Ottl in too many games. Ok, he is part of the squad but come on, everyone (again) could see that he just is not Bayern material. He was probably our worst player in every match he played in. You can play him to rest some players but he was a starter in a big part of the season !!
Then he used Schweini as #10. Well, almost everyone could see that it wasn't the best for the team not to mention playing everyone out of his position. but that's arguable, okey.
Ok..we all said that...
But now...when DVB is on the bench and does not play, Demichelis is not here anymore, Ottl is on the bench, MVB is sold, now that Schweini is back to #6...
We lost to Dortmund.
5 months ago Badstuber was our best CB...DVB and Demichelis were awful..therefor LVG was stupid to use them.
Now Badstuber is our main CB and all of a sudden he sux.
Schweini was bad as #10 and now when he is at #6 against Dortmund [making 2 big mistakes, and 1 against Inter].
All I want to say is...
Even if we bring Vidic, Neuer, Ashley Cole it wont get much better...it will get better but we wont just become Barcelona 2.
Every top team has its ups and downs during the season. But having 11 world class players does not bring you every trophy there is.
2 years ago we were really bad under Klinsmann...he had good players in Lucio, Toni, Ze Roberto etc...but we were not that good. But than LVG comes with Muller, Badstuber, Schweini [#6]...and we almost win a treble in our first season.
Most of you will say it was Robben who got us there...well he did his job...but to say he was the one to get us back to elite is just not true.
Just dont forget that after all those years of absence from Europe`s elite now we are back and are putting fear into likes of Manchester United, Inter etc...
Dont be too greedy...be happy that we are here where we are.
