Time for us to see who you picked for each of our Teams of the Season

Hello and welcome to part 1 of our Fan Team of the Season lists. After our lists three weeks ago, it’s time to see who our fans picked. We’re aware that there may be bias (we are a Bayern Munich blog after all), but that’s why we do these three different lists.

Here, we will show you who you picked, compare it to who we picked and I’ll give my thoughts on your picks.


Goalkeeper

Staff pick: Stefan Ortega Moreno - Arminia Bielefeld

Fan Pick: Stefan Ortega Moreno - Arminia Bielefeld

Of all the choices you fans made across all three Teams of the Season, Moreno got the most vote share with 95%. Clearly the right choice here. 11 clean sheets can’t be wrong.


Right Back

Staff Pick: Theodor Gebre Selassie - Werder Bremen

Fan Pick: Theodor Gebre Selassie - Werder Bremen

This was by an even wider margin than our staff vote. Statistically, it makes sense, even though it will make a few of the fans upset.


Centerbacks

Staff picks: Amos Pieper - Arminia Bielefeld & Marco Friedl - Werder Bremen

Fan Picks: Amos Pieper - Arminia Bielefeld & Marco Friedl - Werder Bremen

Great minds seem to think alike here. No surprises as our choices are the exact same as yours.


Left Back

Staff Pick: Ludwig Augustinsson - Werder Bremen

Fan Pick: Jonas Hector - 1. FC Köln

This wasn’t nearly as close as our staff vote. Whereas Augustinsson edged Hector by one vote, this was a landslide. Hector was my personal pick, so I’m happy he’s getting his recognition.


Central Defensive Midfielder

Staff Pick: Ellyes Skhiri - 1. FC Köln

Fan Pick: Ellyes Skhiri - 1. FC Köln

Wow, do you all just moonlight as Köln fans in your spare time? I’d be surprised if we didn’t also pick the midfield in Köln’s favor.


Central Midfielders

Staff picks: Elvis Rexhbecaj and Ondrej Duda - 1. FC Köln

Fan Picks: Elvis Rexhbecaj and Ondrej Duda - 1. FC Köln

STOP CHEATING OFF OUR TEST.


Right Midfielder/Winger

Staff pick: Ritsu Doan - Arminia Bielefeld

Fan pick: Ritsu Doan - Arminia Bielefeld

I’m surprised Matthew Hoppe got as many votes as he did, but in the end, we still picked the same people yet again.


Left Midfielder/Winger

Staff pick: Milot Rashica - Werder Bremen

Fan Pick: Milot Rashica - Werder Bremen

Another lopsided win here for the Bremen winger.


Striker

Staff pick: Fabian Klos - Arminia Bielefeld

Fan Pick: Niklas Füllkrug - Werder Bremen

Ok, so this was the closest pick you guys gave us. We needed to do a coin flip in order to decide a winner. In the end, Füllkrug came out on top and resulted in one of the only two differences between our teams.
