Reposting it from the match thread.



Now,I find no suitable way to describe my feelings as I saw Philipp Lahm walk off the pitch. Nothing else mattered today.All truly great clubs have at least one insignia player. Certain footballers become icons that embody the clubs they play for. They stand as synonyms of love for the team and the values of the club. Real Madrid have Sergio Ramos with his late goals and his irrepressible persistence. Juventus have Gianluigi Buffon. Roma have Francesco Totti, who will retire after this season as well.
You could say that Bayern are lucky to have more than one. People argue that Thomas Müller is essentially a personification of the club. Until his departure, Bastian Schweinsteiger was a massive symbol.However, nobody in recent Bayern history holds a candle to Philipp Lahm. Not even Basti himself.Lahm’s is a special kind of loyalty. He rarely makes outlandish statements about his sense of belonging to the club. Der Käpitan refused to become a loudmouth in the style of Totti and Ramos. Instead, he delivered. He brings the team together as a leader. When Bayern lost the 2012 Champions League final, you saw that. Lahm walked around the pitch, talking to his teammates and trying to cheer them up as Manuel Neuer consoled them.The only thing he ever said was “I am confident that I’m not going to play for any other club than Bayern”. Enough said.
He is the single greatest Bayern player of the last 15 years, bar none.It makes me incredibly sad that he is retiring. Still, I would rather see him do it now, so that we can still miss him, than see him decline way past the threshold of acceptability. Many players have done that and it leaves a bittersweet taste.
Thank you, Käpitan.

Can't find the words for our captain. He didn't make it easy for me after all the things he gave to our team. All the legendary performances, the moments, and the passion.
We can go on for days talking only great things about this man and it still won't be enough. He is and -all emotions aside- the best RB/LB in history of football.
The way he decided to leave the national team then Bayern in this form...man he's not making it easy for me.

Thank you for everything, captain. And we will see you again in the team with a different role for sure.

like the legend before and the ones to come...Lahm has cemented his name and legacy forever...Few men have done this on such a scale. Van Bommel uses to be my favourite player but I can say not even he can stand in our shadow.....You will forever be my capatin...you will always be the only #21 I will ever truly recognise. its an honour to have watched you play....enjoy the rest of your life, Captain.

You guys say 'enjoy the rest of your life" like Lahm had 3 months left or something [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY][FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY][FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

He will be back in a management role, I'm sure of it :)

I remember his first days, so for me and those who experienced it like me it is more difficult to swollow.

As I watched Lahm progress throughout his career, I find this moment incredibly sad, and in my narrow scope, a season too early . . . With that said, I'm excited for his Phoenix return as manager at some point. There's no doubt in my mind he'll bring the Big ear'd trophy with him

That makes you remind that yourself also got older.

Is it? You've seen Bayern without Lahm, even if you've forgotten what it's like. For those of us who are younger, we've never (or barely... but I don't think I have except maybe a couple CL games when he was on loan) seen a Bayern without Lahm. I think the biggest change one goes through in football is when the players who've been there all your life start retiring. Alonso is also part of that for me, but obviously Lahm being a Bayern player, it's just different.

I remember the days when we had to French wing backs...
Willy and Bixente...
Before that it was Babbel but I don't remember him a lot as I was not able to watch any of the games in that particular period.

Edit. I think even El Brazzo played in that position for a period when we played a 3.5.2
