Bundesliga: All the latest German flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs
Bayern star is game for a laugh
Troubled Germany keeper jumped in front of a train
Who the hell is this?
He had the world at his feet and he scuffed his shot
Fergie’s crimson face tells the story. Yep, United lost After last night’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the final of the Audi Cup, Man Utd can no longer win the fabled septuple. Yes, United’s season is in tatters and it’s not even August. United lost on pens to Bayern, in the Allianz Arena, after playing […]
Looking up at the stars makes me think of all the hot guys in the world… Click the photo below to launch the gallery:
Three cheers (at least) to Sasha for this Premier League-quality suggestion. Great spot, Sasha. Got a lookalike for Pies? Email me with your tip, no matter how shit it is.

We got ourselves a couple of Sideshow Bobs here. Lichte is the assistant coach for SC Paderborn (of Bundesliga 2 fame), and Gladwell is the cult author of best-sellers ‘Blink’ and ‘Tipping Point’. PS. Many thanks for all the Lookalikes you emailed in while Pies was inactive. Keep em’ coming!

As this photo montage shows, Franck Ribery is back in training at Bayern Munich. But that hasn’t stemmed the flow of transfer toss about Ribery’s future. Most of Europe’s major clubs have been linked with the wrong-faced Frenchman, and now you can add Liverpool to the list. This just in from Goal.com: “Bayern Munich winger […]
Rene Adler and Tranquillo Barnetta show off Leverkusen’s new Adidas away kit, which boasts a white, yellow and red McDonald’s-style colour scheme. That wouldn’t normally be a good thing, but I think this kit gets away with it. Another pic below: Like the kit? Think it looks cheap and nasty? Vote below… Rate Bayer Leverkusen’s […]
The home kit is fine, the away kit is too clever by half… You might not be suprised to discover that FC Augsburg’s new kits are made by k-k-krazy German manufacturer Do You Football, who are also repsonsible for VfL Bochum’s mental ‘smudged’ kit. Yes, we get that Augsburg begins with the letter A. You […]
Look at this piece of insania! It’s krazy with a k. It’s the work ofÂ a funky German company called Do You Football. That doesn’t even make sense. So this is what happens when Germans think outside the box. The smudges are some sort of reference to Bochum’s industrial heritage, I believe. Bochum was a big […]
After a wee break, the Best Player in the World World Cup is back. We kick off again with the opening ties in Group F. First up, an all-Prem, all-midfield tie: Chelsea’s Frank Lampard takes on Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano. A tough one for Lampsy, this…
When I call FB arrogant, I mean it as a massive compliment. It’s admirable arrogance, if that’s not oxymoronic. This highlights reel, which popped up on YouTube a few days ago, features some great footage of old Franz striding imperiously around the pitch, in a manner that makes it easy to see why he was […]
Difficult-to-spell team wins last ever Uefa Cup final Shish-kebab Donertsk go down in the history books as the final team to lift the Uefa Cup (next season we get the Europa League, or Eurovision League as I will be calling it). The Ukraine side deservedly beat a Diego-less Werder Bremen, thanks to Rodrigues Jadson’s winner […]
Werder Bremen reach Uefa Cup final, thanks partly to bizarre bobble Damn that pesky “papierkugel”! Hamburger SV, quarter-final conquerors of Manchester City, were on course to make the Uefa Cup final, but fate intervened, in the form of a scrunched up ball of paper. Just as Hamburg defender Michael Gravgaard was about to hoof the […]
Alex Ferguson knows better than most that Cristiano Ronaldo may move to Real Madrid this summer. Fergie’s first choice to replace C-Ron is Lionel Messi, but there’s zero chance that Messi will swap Barcelona for Manchester.
