And I mean seriously: How can one take an 0:5 loss in the Pokal and hold it side by side with a 5:2 win (over a better team) in the UCL and say "These things are the same" (or at least: "Winning 5:2 is not different enough to make me think that 0:5 was an exception")??? :lol:

Lewandowski outstanding!!!
Doesn’t look like it… 9 goals conceded in the last three matches…


Saying "conceded 9 in 3" when one was a 5-goal match that was obviously (well, if nothing else, measurably/statistically) an outlier is about as meaningful as the people back in late August who were saying "We've scored 20 in three matches!" when 12 of those came in - you guessed it - an obvious statistical outlier.
Well, I rate Gladbach a little higher than Berlin still and Benfica, dunno, he game… We could also say 4 in 2 which is not that much better…

Strange to see fans unhappy when we win. Or maybe "fans".

Our defence is not bad anyway. It’s been great apart from this last week.

Are they? Dunno

And it’s not about the exception… Scoring 5 is hard for Gladbach, even against us

The problem is it’s the same mistakes again… Over and over… Which is also why we always lose there… We don’t learn from those…

Literally the entire football world can’t believe we’re scoring 5 goals in almost every match twice a week (seeing a game in which your team scores 5 ONCE is rare for almost everyone but Bayern fans) and you choose to focus on the one game we lost

With our offensive approach we`ll let some in. It is not like we play like Italy with their catenaccio some decades ago. To compare Liverpool conceded five in the CL.

Before the Gladbach game we conceded an average of a bit less than 1 goal per 2 games IIRC. We hadn’t conceded in the CL before tonight.

Admittedly things have been shaky in the past 3 games but also we were without Lucas today.

With the penalty and sitters that Sane and Lewy missed that match could have been closer to 8-9 goals scored. This is just scary.

Because we didn’t just lose a game… Also it‘s not just me… It‘s still all over the place here… Commentators said the same thing… Yes, our offense is great… We know that… You want me to say it again? It is!
Doesn’t negate the fact that with these defensive displays on a regular level we don’t stand a chance

But good point, should be a stabilizing factor…

Yes, it has been a shaky defence a couple of matches. Still we have conceded less than City,Liverpool and PSG in the CL. And I say we have a good chance against those teams. Why should we feel inferior?
