But I'm not sure if Lahm is going to be world class again as RB. He's not getting any younger and he's been dealing with a severe injury. His fitness is not the best now and he still needs time to recover his form.

Well well... =D> Everyone played well tonight, even Mario. Thought Lahm would replace Xabi as the pivote, but the old man has still got it! Guess I gotta eat my words saying Xabi should be dropped. Even Rode coming in as a late sub instead of starting was perfect, injecting energy into the team after the team gave everything in the first 60 minutes.

Wow. What a beautiful game. First half was perfect Pep-style. Killer pressing when off the ball, killer first touch passing. A sight to behold! And the first Lewy goal... No words can describe it. Goal of the season in my book. Perfect team play.

I count 26 consecutive passes before the goal.

Perfect goal for sure. You could tell the team was confident once again in their superiority. Technically the best, but the heart shown for the first goal has a special place for me. Even if we eventually go down, I'm proud above all for the heart the team has!

I need to rewatch this game again- power was out due to horrible weather in Sydney which annoyed me to miss the first 25-30 minutes. Based on replays, the crosses were vital in scoring- especially the first 3 goals. Casemiro, Quaresma and Martins Indi cannot defend at all at the wings. I don't know what Julen Lopetegui said to his players at half time but I'm guessing it's to do with the formation change which worked out and gave Porto more possession and develop their own game. Now moving on towards the SF- it's going to be hard work against Barcelona or whichever Madrid team. Pep needs to find that Armani tailor and blame the split pants on them.

It always amuses me that the English commentators I get have nothing to say when they see the tifos or hear the chants because they understand none of it. :lol: EPL best league in the world :roll: The crowds are more passionate at WIMBLEDON

Alonso and Boateng emend their mistakes of the first leg, with a goal today, Dante didn’t have his chance.

But... Now come a critic about Porto goal.. Why, but why Alonso force to begin playing from the back when Porto was pressing. Porto goal born because a missing pass of Xabi after forcing to play at the back, in semifinal of champions league and DFB Pokal, Bayern should shoot the ball far away when the pressure of the opponent is nearly the goal, instead of risk conceding an easy goal for the opponent for forcing to begin a play from the back.

Well, well, well - that result was a very enjoyable surprise. The first half especially was a delight to watch, when Bayern did almost everything right, and were several levels better than Porto.

The key factor was the tempo - possibly the fastest football Bayern have played this season. It wasn't all about running. They played beautiful 1-touch possession football, straight out of Pep's textbook, and did it superbly. Moreover, their passion was evident and their pressing was brillant. It all left Porto overwhelmed. Indeed, Porto often looked like a very small child trying to hang on to a runaway horse.

The second half was less dominant, largly because Porto changed their tactics, and were more effective as a result. Still, the outcome was never really under threat on the night.

The whole team and trainer deserve huge amounts of praise. Some played perhaps their best ever football in a Bayern shirt - Thiago, Bernat, Lewandowski - but it was, in the end, a team performance and a team victory. And has anyone counted up how many of these starting XI players actually played in the latter stages of the CL triumph under Heynckes? Yes. Very few. Maybe 3 or so. This is the beginning of a new era of Bayern and Bayern players. And it looks promising.

Pep can make some overly emotional and exaggerated statements about players, but I still really liked to hear him say at the press conference afterwards that he was very proud and happy to be the manager of these players.
