I didn't say he's not good, I just said "F him" he's really dislikeable.

I guess most users here are so sad after the elimination at the hands of Liverpool because their hopes were up especially in wake of the recent thrashings Bayern handed out in the BL.

I was mentally prepared for anything this season and am therefore not as upset as I was in 2016 (devasted) and 2018 (pissed)

This season was a free pass for me and anything beyond QF would have been a massive bonus. I had accepted the fact that Bayern weren’t good enough to win the UCL this year.

Me too...
I just wished that we would at least reach the Q.F

Also meeting Pool at this stage did not help

Are you sure Juve or ManCity would help? Or Atletico in Madrit?
Other way we met Klopp vs. Kovac so was very predictable.

So, BL record against EPL teams in the R16 ended with 5 Losses and 1 Draw with an aggregate score of 17-3. Of those 3 goals scored, 2 were penalties and 1 was an own goal :D We have a LOOOOT of catching up to do.

The current state of German football is painful. The NT is a mess and the BL is even a bigger mess. A formula that worked 10 years ago doesn't mean that it will work for eternity, rather it needs to be updated frequently and that is the reason of the current failure. We are living in the past. The BL, and Bayern specifically, are still boasting about the 2012 final as if it was yesterday. No proper outlook for the future has been set. It's clear now that football has reached a point of no return, either pay or die. The formula of "smart" spending is no longer valid when you are aiming to be an elite team. At its current state, I don't see any high profile player willing to transfer to the BL as it would probably mean a step down if that player belongs in one of the other top 4 leagues. If German football needs to rise up from the ashes, the first logical step would be scrapping that out-dated, hypocritical 50+1 rule. And yes, it is hypocritical, because it's not okay to give shares for foreign entities but it is completely okay to have sponsorship agreements with them :|

Worth noting that the own goal was by a (biologically) half-German player, born and raised in Germany, and who learned his football in Germany.

We cannot expect to play crap like Besiktas, Sevilla, Porto and Basel every K.O. match... But the one time we don’t we whine - great mentality!

Ronaldo wouldn’t have mattered in our games. Kovac would have told him to stay back on defense.

Ronaldo didn't track back even with Jose. There is 0,03 % chance that he would follow the directions of Kovac.

Please count number of German vs. English players in the teams' squads or teams' coaches nationalities, otherwise you count monies only.
