It's a preseason match, an exhibition match and while we're losing (GolTV is airing the game just now and it's in the second half) 2-0 I am very oblivious to it because not only is my favorite defensemen, van Buyten, getting to play gain (and yes I realize it's all preseason), but Mark is Captain again. Pre-season or not, this makes me extraordinarily happy. I missed the first half so I don't have too much to say about the match itself. It was already 2-0 when I started watching
A couple of points:
It is great to see Hamit back on the pitch again. I have missed him.
Podolski looked okay. He set up the goal by Ekici and while I've never heard of him, an impressive start since he only stepped on the pitch and basically immediately scored. He got a pat on the back from one of the Dortmund players which is nice. Your first goal only comes once.
Did I mention that Mark as Captain again makes me very happy? :)
Lell almost matches the color of the white trikot.
The announcers said that Klopp doesn't allow his players to play video games during the pre-season and that Klinsmann has made Bayern all feng shui.
Lucio... I'm not even going to say anything.
Demichelis is class.
Klopp and his team get the trophy.
So... do any of you lovely readers know what 'Bayern's secret plans for Kahn' are? I know he was at the presentation of the new jersey's, but I'm curious what the 'secret plans' are.
Sebastian Kehl looked very proud. Good for him.
And in closing... Did I mention I love Mark as Captain? ;) Come on, you didn't expect anything less of me did you?
