The CL draw has been released and Bayern have gotten Sporting Lisbon. At first glance, one wants to say fantastic, this is the best possible situation for the team, but at second glance, it leaves me weary. Bayern are notorious for not giving enough respect and laying back on their heels for the less competitive teams. It could be good, but it could also be very bad. We'll see what happens.
Mark van Bommel and Ze Roberto are high on the priority list of re-signings. They're trying to extend Ze's contract by a year and there has been a new offer for Mark, but he has not made a decision. He will give them his answer after the winter break. However, some interesting teams (Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool for example) are all interested in my Captain, so we'll have to see what happens there.
Bayern will be looking to get rid of Jose Ernesto Sosa for the time being. Saying he hasn't established himself and they're starting to lose patience with him at Bayern, they are looking at letting him go on loan in the winter break. There have been some inquiries and Bayern are exploring the options.
And in the meantime, Michael Rensing and the big guy are exchanging jabs. Unfortunately, on this one, I can't say I'm too much on Rensing's side.
That's all I have for now. I hope you're all enjoying the winter and have a great holiday season!
