Hoeneß: It'll be all-out attack in the New Year

Sundays in the pre-Christmas Advent period are traditionally quiet and contemplative in Bavaria, but that was emphatically not the case on the second Sunday in Advent for a handful of thrilled Bayern fan clubs, winners of a visit from one of the players or officials in an annual prize draw. Uli Hoeneß always draws one of the largest and most animated crowds, and that was the case again this year when the general manager dropped by a fan club event in the Upper Bavarian town of Höslwang.

"I hereby promise there will be no more excuses from the moment we start mid-season training ahead of the second half of the season," Hoeneß declared in front of several hundred absorbed fan club members. "All our injured players will be fit again, so the time for apologising will be over. That's when we'll mount an all-out attack."

<b>Keen anticipation</b>

Even before a ball was kicked in anger, the coaching staff had always known the team would have a "tough time" this season, Hoeneß remarked, but the manager is now expecting the players to bounce back after the winter break. "The players know they can do better than this, and have to be a lot more consistent in the Bundesliga."

Hoeneß was bristling with anticipation ahead of Bayern's post-Christmas pursuit of leaders Werder Bremen. "Even if Werder get two or three paces ahead of us, we'll reel them in, have no fear on that score," he intoned, revealing the club may after all delve into the January transfer market: "If we consider it necessary, we'll get involved."

<b>A little Ronaldinho</b>

Whatever happens in early 2007, the champions would be bringing in new faces in the summer, the manager announced. Bayern were preparing to invest "10, 20 or 40 million Euro, but definitely not just on one player." The Höslwang fan club left no doubt as to their Christmas wish-list by presenting Hoeneß with an unusual souvenir gift, a Ronaldinho puppet in a Bayern shirt.
