Bundesliga kicks off tonight and the traditional opener will be live on ARD hence me opening the thread. I would have been even more interested in the fixture had Bouhlarouz made it but he won't play :( wuold have been an ideal opportunity to see him up against Makaay. Still it should be good to watch.

Bayerns team I guess will be:

------Pizarro----Makaay-----

Ze Roberto-Frings-Ballack-Deisler

Lizarazu-Linke??-Lucio-Sagnol

-----------Kahn------------



:fero:

@Wally : Ballack has to sit out the match because of his 5th yellow card. Sagnol is injured. Pizarro is still questionable, he picked up a knee injury, if he can't play Zickler will get his place in the starting team. And i'm expecting Hargreaves and/or Schweinsteiger in the starting team instead of Deisler.

Hamburg team will look like this :

- - - - - - - - - - - Pieckenhagen - - - - - - - - - - - -
Brecko - - van Buyten - - Reinhardt:yuck: - - Klingbeil
- - - - - - - - - - - - - Wicky - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - Jarolim - - - - - - - - - - - Trochowski - - - -
- - - - - - - - - - - - - Barbarez - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- - - - - - - Mpenza - - - - - - - Takahara - - - - - -

The absence of Boulahrouz really hurts. Reinhardt cannot replace him at all. Our other weak points are our wingbacks Klingbeil and Brecko.

Yeah I never heard of your wingbacks and Reinhardt :eek: are they new?

As for Bayern, Zickler back?! :eek: that'd be quite something. Injured for ages and then immediately up in the pecking order above Santa Cruz and Hashemian. What will they think?! :eek:
As for Ballack, who'll play in his spot then? Scholl ? (if he's not injured as well :eek:) Salihamardzic I guess will fill in Sagnols place.

Scholl will play for sure. Santa Cruz is still recovering from an injury ( as always ...).
Reinhardt is one of our backup central defenders. He's playing for Hamburg since 2003, played for Bielefeld and some other teams before in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2. Tall guy who is great in the air but terrible on the ground. He will concede many free-kicks with stupid fouls because he is so unskilled. Scholl will get a lot of free-kick opportunities tonight :mad: ...
Klingbeil was promoted by Doll from the HSV amateur team and Brecko is a very talented but young ( 20 ) and inexperienced right wingback from Slovenia.

Harald Schmidt predicted a 5-1 victory of Bayern yesterday ;)

I hope not... the league needs some suspense, therefore Bayern mustn't run away at the top. Would be too boring, as has been the last decade in general with few exceptions.

The case Hashmenian is funny... why didnt the Bayern bosses actually ask the coach whether he rates that guy at all or not... if Zickler gets picked ahead of Vaheed, there must be a personal issue between magath and him.

What are the odds at William Hill for an immideate re-injury of Zickler if he plays? 1-2? ;)

I hope Demichelis gets a chance today.

Where's Mahdavikia? Can you give some information on Jarolim.

@Rafo : Mahdavikia isn't a starter anymore. He is quite useless as right midfielder, he's only good when played as a right winger but this position doesn't exist anymore in our team since Doll took over. I hope that Mahdavikia will be tried as right defender/wingback, this position should suit him. Jarolim is a czech midfielder, quite talented and technically skilled. Good dribbler but he sometimes holds the ball to long when he should have made a quick pass instead.

I think Deisler is also suspsended because of too many yellows? As for Zickler, he is said to be making a remarkable comeback, and with him being one of "the boys" and everyone excited to see him back, I could see him getting a chance today.

A 5-1 win for Bayern is unlikely, however, even with Lizarazu returning, because Bayern have been having trouble holding on to the lead. The defense has trouble absorbing the pressure and the offense has trouble responding.

I've read a few days ago in a belgian newpaper that Mpenza probably wont play because he's still recovering from an injury. (what a surprise. :irritate: )
But he probably will start on the bench

But what about Lahm? Is he injured too?

Earlier on, an injured Trochowski was replaced by Benjamin, so both clubs' new arrivals have had to leave the game...

Lots of excitement. Pizarro missed an open goal and hit van Buyten, and then he missed another shot. Now Basti had a shot on goal that could not be cleared off the line, and it is now 2-0 for FCB.
