Summer exit; Franck Ribéry - Arjen Robben

Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal's position looks to be untenable after the German champions lost 3-1 to a superior Hannover outfit in the third-place showdown. Everything that could wrong for Bayern did go wrong - a deflected goal, a goalkeeping howler and a red card. It now appears likely yet another Bundesliga coach will lose his job after a defeat to Hannover. 

 

Bayern are five points off the final Champions League slot with sixth-place Nurnberg just three points behind them, there manager looks to be on his way at the end of the season. No manager and no European football… could either Robben or Ribery be tempted into a move?

 

I wonder if any of the big spending Premier League clubs will seize the opportunity in signing one of two players who possess undoubted ability.

Yes, I heard about that...LOL at Inter anyway, I hate them. Except for Zanetti of course.

 

Read a funny tweet about Bayern earlier - something along the lines of 'who knew that having your manager announce his forthcoming departure would have such an effect'

 

LOL, Van Gaal, such a hard man. I think he should go to Arsenal, he'd whip them into shape.

They are winning 6-0. :)

 

Watch out Inter who were almost beaten by 19th placed Brescia last night. Cesar saved a penalty in the dying minutes which would've gave Brescia the win.

But are they losing 4-3? ;)

 

They need a win, Bayern...

Robben has just scored a 15 minute hatrick against Hamburg.

Yep Van Gaal is defo leaving at the end of the season. After they got knocked out of the cup by Schalke (!) I'll bet they are putting all their eggs in the Champo League basket. I'm sure they can get past Inter, but depending on the draw, it could get a bit Messi after that...

 

Robben a brilliant talent, but more injured that just about anyone, so not sure how many would 'bite' for him. And Ribery's well-known troubles - would people be afraid to have him due to the taint? But both are total talents, and would grace any top club on the pitch.
