A little Schmankerl with your morning coffee is never a bad thing.

Happy 4th of July to our American Bayern fans (@FCBerni12)

Thomas Müller tweets for the first time since Germany’s World Cup heartbreak (@esmuellert_)

Each German player took the squad’s listless World Cup performance hard, but it appears that it took Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller some extra time to get over the disappointment. For the first time since Die Mannschaft inexplicably was upset by South Korea, Müller took to Twitter to express his sorrow over the loss and gratitude toward the fans.

Even with a few days’ distance, the early World Cup withdrawal still hurts tremendously. Unfortunately we were unable to build on the achievements of the WM 2014 and now have to handle this great disappointment. Dear fans, thanks for your great support in the last few weeks!

Fox captured James’ entire day in one tweet (@FOXSoccer)

This tweet, though, it made me laugh.

Report: No official offers on Boateng, Thiago, or Vidal (SportBild)

As the transfer frenzy heats up, some of Bayern’s most marketable assets have not garnered much interest on the open market.

Without any official offers on those players, Bayern is looking at a deep and extremely talented roster for 2018-2019. One could expect the action surround those players, along with Sebastian Rudy, Juan Bernat, and possibly even James (there have been a few careless whispers about him leaving...who knows how legit?) to heat up in coming weeks.

As any new information breaks, we’ll be tracking it with BavarianFootballWorks.com.

FC Dallas player will be on loan to Bayern II through 2018 as part of partnership agreement (MLSSoccer.com)

FC Dallas defender Chris Richards will play with Bayern II through 2018 as part of a deal between the clubs.

The loan will likely run through the end of 2018, according to the sources. Richards, 18, signed a Homegrown contract with FCD in April but has not yet been officially added to the club’s MLS roster as he works to complete his Homegrown eligibility requirements. An Alabama native, Richards joined the FC Dallas academy in 2017. MLS teams can’t add Homegrown players to their roster until they’ve spent a full year in their academy, a mark that Richards hasn’t yet hit.

The sources said that Richards will train and play with Munich’s Under-19s while in Germany. A US Under-20 international, he spent 10 days training with Bayern Munich in May as part of the new player development partnership between FCD and the German giants.

Our own Brian Kellogg covered why the partnership between the clubs was mutually beneficial.
