Good timing or bad timing for the international break? You be the judge...

Kingsley Coman on the road to recovery (@Sky_Torben)

Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman is working his way back from an ankle injury and as many of his teammates depart for their respective team camps during this international break, Coman is diligently working to get back into the Starting XI for Die Roten.

This morning, Torben Hoffman of Sky Sports captured some video of Coman jogging on the training pitch at Säbener Strasse.

Kingsley #Coman continues to work on his comeback @FCBayern return scheduled in November! @SkySportNewsHD @SkySportDE

Coman’s presence would certainly provide a boost to the Bayern lineup (bit of an understatement, eh?).

Jerome Boateng’s magazine hits the shelves (@Carlimann)

While this may look like Jerome Boateng picked up a shift at your local convenience store, it is really a picture of Boateng promoting the fact that his Boa magazine is hitting the shelves.

Gold chain shines, Cap sits (not really), laugh is back. New “job” after the bitter Bayern loss in Dortmund. @JB17Official stands behind the counter and sells in Berlin. More soon at @BILD #BVBFCB credit: @die_Ferse

Oliver Kahn as a successor to Uli Hoeness? (AZ)

Uli Hoeness may be riding off in the sunset soon enough and Oliver Kahn won’t rule himself out as a successor (I, too, would like to include myself in the pool of potential successors!).

Marco Reus offers insight on Der Klassiker (Bundesliga.com)

With the sting of Der Klassiker still fresh, Marco Reus spoke a bit on the importance of Borussia Dortmund’s performance and also about how his squad has plenty of work left to do.

They put us under a lot of pressure but in the second half we had more confidence in our own ability. It was an incredible match today and was fun to be out on the pitch. We won at home against Bayern, so we can’t have many complaints. Equalizing at 2-2 gave us a boost and we put our foot on the peddle after that.

We’re a team and everyone works for everyone else. I feel good and am playing in my favorite position. But I also missed two or three chances today, they would’ve been important if they’d gone in. Our advantage [in the league table] means nothing right now. It’s good to have that cushion but Bayern are really strong. It’s far too soon to talk about whether we can win the title or not.

Speaking of Reus’ favorite position. The 29-year old is heading to camp for Die Mannschaft and could be settling into a consistent role for Germany. After shifting across the wings, attacking midfield, and occasionally at striker for Joachim Low, the German manager may be placing Reus in a steady role soon enough.

A call for fan groups (BavarianFootballWorks.com)

We are trying something here at the Daily Schmankerl and need YOUR help. If you read my man Tommy Adams’ piece about his experience with the FCBNYC Fan Club (if you haven’t, SHAME ON YOU!), you could see how great the event was. So we want to highlight some of these wonderful groups that are out there globally and this is what we need from you:

  • Name of the group
  • Location
  • Year founded
  • Leadership (if you have people are kind of running the show)
  • Meeting place
  • Social media handles
  • Pictures

We want to be able to feature a different fan group every week this season. Maybe we can do it, maybe not...but only YOU can help decide the fate of this idea. Send your info to: barrelsportsblog@gmail.com
