    Yeah, I watched it.

    Just couldn’t be bothered posting.

    Bayern (well technically Bild) today revealed that Nico Kovac will take over as manager next season.

    Not particularly well known outside of Germany or Croatia, but he has done a fantastic job at Eintracht Frankfurt in the past few seasons. He took over and just about saving them from relegation - winning the play off against Nuremburg, before nearly qualifying for Europe last season and getting to the final of the German Cup.

    This season Eintracht are competing for a European place again, and are in the last 4 of the Cup.

    Hopefully he can get them in the top 4 before he leaves.

    Bit of a dick move that when Frankfurt are still competing for European places. An interesting appointment though, a huge step up in every level for Kovac.

    There is no good timing until after the end of the season - but the press is on this topic for months.

    Frankfurt for sure was not surprised - Kovac left himself that "backdoor" in every press conference when asked if he stays in Frankfurt and he has a release clause if Bayern knocks on the door.

    Pretty silly post. Who do you suggest they appoint then, a homeless bloke from the English Gardens so they aren't poaching anyone? I mean, unless they appointed someone out of work, they'd be poaching someone every-time they appointed a new manager.

    Culling any opposition of their best players, win the league by a mile every year and ensure there's no competition and expect to be supported in European games for the good of Germany, and they play in red and white. Could go on and on with the factual comparisons. Close to the bone, full of truth and with a dollop of British humour on top.

    but you'd of course find a way to declare it a great democracy and competitive environment.

    Bayern are not a fucking charity. It's up to the other teams to close the gap not the other way round.

    The Premier League hasn't been much of a contest this year, but I've still managed to enjoy it but presumably you think it's been a disgrace?

    We announced Pep midseason - so we poached him right? And because we are righteous we were trying to rescue Mahrez from the great injustice of playing for Leicester?

    It's fucking football and you have the nerve to compare it to Nazi atrocities, and then attempt to justify it?

    no, because we haven't won the past 5 titles, bought Hazard and Kante from Chelsea, De Gea from the Rags and Kane, Eriksen and Alderweireld from Spurs, for example. You've clearly had a thought and humour bypass.
