Hello!

I'm Tommy I'm 21 from the UK, I guess I'm a fairly new Bayern Fan having started following them a couple of seasons ago. I found this forum a while back and have just been browsing ever since. Thought it was about time I made an account and contributed to the forum! :)

Hello everybody,

I am originally from Bavaria, grew up in a rural town close to the Czech border (formerly known as the Iron Curtain) and have been living in Sydney/Australia since the mid-90ies.

Rumor has it that I will be turning 50 this year. Considering that I've been following Bayern Munich since the mid-70ies, one could say that I have been around for a while. I remember watching the 75 and 76 Europe Cup finals on TV, but I only turned into a Bayern fan at the beginning of the 76/77 season - just in time to witness their decline from European greatness to domestic mediocrity.

It was not easy being a Bayern fan in those days, and being surrounded by Nuernberg and 1860 supporters didn't help. Beckenbauer had left for the USA, followed by Gerd Mueller the year after. Ulli Hoeness had to quit football because of an injury. Rummenigge was merely an upcoming hopeful, and Sepp Maier was still the goal keeper. I remember Bayern being in the relegation zone in 77/78. I recall the 0-7 home defeat against Schalke, and the memorable 1-6 away defeat in Saarbruecken. If you think that coming 2nd three times in 2012 was bad, then think again.

I never watch replays of defeats. It hurts too much. It is more than enough to witness it when it happens. The Europe cup final losses of 82 and 87 come to mind, as does the semi final elimination against Belgrade in 91. I was depressed for three days after the 99 final against Manchester United, and I truly thought it couldn't get any worse, and nothing would ever hurt again. But it got worse and hurt even more after the 2012 final against Chelsea. It rattled me for months.

It was round about that time that I joined a different forum, stayed for a year, and left after I realized that I didn't belong there. After a hiatus of six months I am hoping to find a new home here at Bayernforum. I am looking forward to getting in touch with the community here, and hope I have meaningful contributions to make.

Welcome Sydney :) I take it that you live in Sydney ... :) There are many Maltese migrants in that City
I really enjoyed your post.
Those two defeats vs A.Villa & Porto must have hurt I got to see the highlights recently and couldn't believe! Although the one vs Porto we can say that they were slightly better.

Hi there, and thanks for the welcome. Yes, I live in Sydney's multicultural western part. And yes, there are more Maltese here in Sydney than in Malta :-)

CL final defeats always hurt. I can only accept the 2010 defeat against Inter. However, the pain of 82, 87, 99 and 2012 has been burned permanently into my nervous system. The only thing that helps are CL victories. Thank goodness for 2001 and 2013!

Welcome Sydney to this forum. Since SouthernStar and I are also both in Sydney (well she's on holiday until next month and I'm stuck here), you are welcome to join us at Cheers Bar in the city (opposite World Square) during live broadcasts of games if they are on Setanta and available on Saturday nights. I'll see if anyone else from the Bayern fanclub in Sydney wants to come and meet up.

Depends on the definition of 'Maltese'. A child who has one Maltese parent who emigrated to Australia is probably counted as being Maltese, even though (s)he may never have set foot on our island.

What I can say with certainty is that less than 50% of Maltese born in Malta have emigrated to Australia and are currently living in Sydney. However once these emigrants mingled with the locals and had children of half-Maltese 'blood', their numbers grew in size at a faster rate and thus possibly have overtaken the amount of Maltese living in Malta.

You see if a Maltese man and woman meet each other in Malta and have 2 kids, there would be 4 Maltese people in Malta in all.
If a Maltese man and woman emigrate to Sydney, they both meet locals and have 2 kids each, there would be 2 Maltese people and a further 4 Maltese descendents. If you count these children as Maltese, then your count is up to 6 Maltese.

Are the sources reliable or is it Sky Italia all over again? :P

I'd say it's to do with both origins and nationalities. It's not like somebody who's never been to Malta and born in another country can't be Maltese. If either of a kid's parents are Maltese and the kid takes on the Maltese nationality, he should be regarded as a Maltese. I don't see the fuss about half or full Maltese blood. Then we'd enter a debate where we'd be stuck on if the 'originals' were really the 'originals'.
That way even I am not sure of my 'original' origins as there's not much proof from where my section of people moved to India in the long, long, long gone past. After all people have been migrating since the 'beginning'.

Goes as earlier. Only if they accept Maltese citizenship.

Same goes in India. We can't really keep of all Indian-origin 'foreign' guys now, can we? There's already a lot of us. :P
