Bayern: Creating a Global Superclub by Uli Hesse

Creating a Global Superclub

Bayern Munich are the most passionately supported club in Germany and the most hated. There is no doubt that they are the most successful. Winners of 24 domestic titles since the late 1960s, they have stood at the pinnacle of European soccer for almost their entire existence. And they've done it all without billionaire tycoon owners, record transfer deals, eye-watering debts, or charging supporters an arm and a leg for tickets. Through interviews with the key protagonists, Uli Hesse tells the story of this unique club. From early run-ins with the Nazis to being dubbed FC Hollywood for their egocentric stars in the 1990s up to the sensational undercover appointment of the best coach in the world, Pep Guardiola, Hesse takes you inside Bayern Munich.

Pep Confidential: The Inside Story of Pep Guardiola's First Season at Bayern Munich by Marti Perarnau

Image

Martí Perarnau was given total access to Bayern Munich during season 2013-14, and this book represents the first time in the modern era that a writer has got this close to one of the elite teams of world football. At the invitation of Pep Guardiola, he shadowed the Catalan, his staff, and his superstar players during training and on match days. Bayern smashed domestic records on their way to the double, but were humiliated by Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinal. Martí was with them every step of the way. Perarnau is with Guardiola as he is courted by the world's greatest clubs during his sabbatical in New York. We hear Guardiola explain in detail the radical tactical moves which transform Bayern's season and reprogram the players who will win the World Cup with Germany. Perarnau talks exclusively and in fascinating detail with an array of players, including Arjen Robben, Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Thiago Alcântara, and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Pep Confidential is much more than the story of a season: it is also a lasting portrait of one of the greatest coaches in sport.

Money and Soccer: A Soccernomics Guide : Why Chievo Verona, Unterhaching, and Scunthorpe United Will Never Win the Champions League, Why Manchester City, Roma, and Paris St. Germain Can, and Why Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United Cannot Be Stopped by Stefan Szymanski

Image

Modern soccer is big business. From the ill-received takeover of Manchester United by the Glazer family to Paris Saint Germain's current shopping spree for the best footballers on the planet, soccer finance has become an increasingly important part of the game. Barely a summer goes by now without a cherished club going into administration or a wealthy businessman funding a mid table team's ascension to Champions League competitor. Meanwhile, the twice-annual multi-million dollar merry-go-round of transfer season sees players (and now managers) signed for sums thought impossible just a decade ago. Understanding soccer finance has become essential for comprehending the beautiful game. But for many fans, soccer finance remains, frustratingly, a world that is opaque and difficult to grasp. Stefan Szymanski, co-author of the bestselling Soccernomics, tackles every soccer fan's burning questions in Money and Soccer: A Soccernomics Guide. From the abolition of the maximum wage in the 1960s, through to the impact of TV money both at home and abroad in the 1990s and 2000s, Szymanski explains how money, or lack of, affects your favourite club. Drawing on extensive research into financial records dating back to the 1970s, Szymanski provides clear analysis of the way that clubs have transformed in the modern era.This book isn't limited to European clubs. Szymanski, a renowned expert on sports management and economics, looks at what we can learn from comparing the ascension of Europe's biggest clubs to their lofty perches and with new financial models across the world. Through careful research and informative stories drawn from around the globe, Szymanski provides an accessible guide to the world of soccer finance.

Red Odyssey: An FC Bayern Fan Journey by Rick D Joshua

Image

Having started out as a potential magazine/blog article, Red Odyssey is a thirty-six year project in the making, charting the author's relationship with Germany's biggest and most well-known football team, FC Bayern München. Having fallen in love with FC Bayern in 1981 as a nine year old, the author charts the events season by season. During the 1980s, FC Bayern were flying high in Germany but victim of painful European Cup final defeats in 1982 and 1987. Meanwhile the author, one of the few supporters of the Bavarian club in the United Kingdom, was performing late-night television-watching escapades at boarding school in order to catch five minutes of potted highlights. Being an FC Bayern fan in the late 1980s and early 1990s was far from a glory hunt, and all of the pain as well as the glory is covered in equal depth with no emotions spared. The solid 1980s were followed by the painful nadir of the early 1990s, with names like Norwich City, BK 1903 Copenhagen and SpVgg Vestenbergsgreuth appearing like ghosts from a dark and horrible past. Then would come the agonising Champions League defeat against Manchester United in 1999. As fans of the club will already know and readers less familiar with the subject will discover, FC Bayern have almost made a habit of fighting back to overcome the pain. Two years after that last-gasp defeat in Barcelona, they would exact the perfect revenge on both United and their other old rivals Real Madrid before claiming that title in a dramatic penalty shootout against Valencia in Milan's San Siro. It was the final chapter in a dramatic season that had also seen them clinch the Bundesliga title in dramatic circumstances, leaving fans of rivals Schalke 04 shedding blue and bitter tears. As FC Bayern developed as a growing international brand and the German game became more popular outside its homeland following the massive development of satellite television, it became a lot easier to watch FC Bayern play. The dark days of scratching for brief highlights were all but forgotten, with almost every match available live. The Champions League triumph in 2001 was not to be the beginning of a new era of continental dominance for FC Bayern, and the club and its supporters would have to wait over a decade for its next victory in Europe's premier club competition - but when it came, it was a moment of history as the club claimed their first-ever treble. By now FC Bayern were being lauded as the best football team in the world, a team up there with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the battle for continental dominance. Red Odyssey has been written by an FC Bayern fan for FC Bayern fans, but there is plenty for everybody else who has a love for German football.

Quiet Leadership: Winning Hearts, Minds and Matches by Carlo Ancelotti

Image

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest managers of all time, with five Champions League titles to his name. Yet his approach could not be further from the aggressive theatricals favored by many of his rivals. His understated style has earned him the fierce loyalty of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti reveals the full, riveting story of his managerial career — his methods, mentors, mistakes, and triumphs — and takes us inside the dressing room to trace the characters, challenges, and decisions that have shaped him. The result is both a scintillating memoir and a rare insight into the business of leadership.

I've never actually read a Bayern book. I might get one or two of these eventually and help out although not just yet as I don't have much time.

I don't have time either but the one I have makes some good toilet reading stuff, particularly when the talk is about 1860.
