Actually... The main source of criticism Bayern gets for several years now, is that they only work as long as Robben/Ribéry work. Double them on the flanks and the whole offense tends to get stalled to a hold.
This is how Dortmund beat them 4 times in a row now and Gladbach (4th) twice this year. Weaker teams managed it as well at times.
At least they will try to shoot from the distance (and not like three times from the 80th minute up) and have some capable people to do so. Mainly Kroos.
And we also must admit that this Bayern side is the best they have had in recent years + Bayern had a rested team while RMad had to play Barcelona 3 days before the match.
I just wanted to point out, that Bayern has a certain one-dimensionality with the current cadre, which could be exploited by Chelsea.
Cahill and Luiz should be fit for the final
Can't wait for Sunday! Chelski are so-so, Bayern were looking solid and then got trounced in the Cup final.
*cofcofcof* of course! I'm just testing you.
I have a horrible feeling that Chelski will actually win it.

David Lloyd George was pleased with his performance at Versailles.
I think it is a 50 - 50 chance. Bayners slight advantage of playing at home (slight, because I don't think Chelsea will be shocked and awed by the atmosphere in the Allianz Arena) was likely neutralized, by Chelsea winning the English Cup finals, while Bayern got a major (2 - 5) thrashing from Dortmund in the German ones.
Will be interesting to see, if they can get that out of their minds and just play "their game".
any view yet on the line ups? chelsea misses terry and ivanovic at the back, and mereilles and ramires on the midfield. bayern misses badstuber and alaba, and L gustavo. So that doesnt look to good for chelsea at the back. then again bayern didnt look too well against dortmund either
Under the patronage of the Noble Savage.
Still a better option than reserve centre-backs if you ask me.
Chelski can either use the same tactics as against Barcelona (which could lead to Schweinsteiger again do some frustration fouls) or they play attack, attack, attack.
In any case, I want them to win over those red basterds.
aren't you a Frankfurt fan?
