Klose Too?

Holy crap, talk about buying a title! Bayern has now added two established hitmen in the beast Luca Toni and now the lethal Klose, an array of young(ish) talent to spread about the park with the likes of Schlaudraff, Jansen, Hamit Altintop, Jose Ernesto Sosa, and, of course, the highly-touted French star Franck Ribéry, plus Brazilian winger Ze Roberto gets a second time around. Wow!

That's some serious cash to splash and they're not even in the Champion's League (but I'm guessing they will be next year). Is this a case of massive overreaction to a disappointing season? Hitzfeld did say he was going to bring in "six, seven, maybe eight new players", to get things turned around. Mission accomplished man, mission accomplished and then some. Oh well, I guess you've got to have a big, quality side to put in that big, quality stadium.


  1. I'm all for this, especially considering how Munich really failed themselves last year. They have such a legacy in Germany, let alone European football, that it really makes sense that they recoup themselves in a really sensational way. I was an admirer before they signed Podolski and this year I really feel like Munich will be a side to watch.

    No one in the UEFA Cup will be able to cope with this season's Munich side.

  2. If they can blend all these new players into the side, then yes, they will be a major force in European football, though I hesitate to think they might walk away with the UEFA Cup. There are some decent English, Spanish, and Italian sides to contend with, and who knows what kind of quality will get dumped in when the third-place finishers from the Champions' League group stage get added to the mix.

    Big turnover is always a chance for big trouble, irregardless of the quality of the players you add.
