"only 5 more months and then I wouldn't have to put up with this" you mean the polish dumbass? also how do you think Barça is more like Bayern? what are their similarities? Ugh I hate Bayern more than any other tean and love Barcelona more than anything, it hurts to see such a comparison
They are both big clubs with big club behavior. In Germany, Bayern practically rule on their own, in Spain, Barcelona share the seat with Madrid. They are richer than all their rival clubs in the league, they basically have first choice when it comes to buying players from other teams.
Both focus of on their own youth players. They bring them up and then they try to keep them. Most of their brought up players say the same thing about Bayern that la masia players say about Barcelona. How it is their team, and they can’t imagine feeling this happy winning with any other team, so money can’t buy them. There is a very tight knit group within the team. They have that family atmosphere.
In both clubs former players stick around. Many of them take up a position in the board. Bayern fans will often say how in the future the club will be run by Basti, Thomas and Lahm. That is very similar to what we say and feel. Pique would be president, Xavi would be coach, and Puyol something else etc etc.
Both of these clubs are the cores for their national teams. Barcelona play the biggest part in Spain nt, and Bayern play the biggest part in German nt.
Real Madrid is a rival to both of these teams.
We are two very high performing, consistent clubs (in recent times at least). In 2010, 2012 Bayern were runner up in CL and winner in 2013. Barcelona has been consistently in the semifinal in last few years and won it in 2009 and 2011.
Bayern and Barcelona try not to buy superstars. Which is a bit uncommon for big clubs.
Both clubs often mention Louis Van Gaal’s contribution, his impact on the teams. And now Pep is another thing we have in common. I believe Pep picked Bayern because he saw the similarities. I can’t exactly remember if he said they were similar, but I feel that he has mentioned it in the past.
“Most of our players are born in ‘88. They were so young when we started. Now they are 24, 25. In 4.5 years, when this contract is ending, the will be nearly 30 years old. So we can have together the best time in their football life.”—Jürgen Klopp/Sky Sports (via yes-09)
I really can't see nuri in the same light as he was in BVB back in the early days. After all the transfer he made,he came back only after everything doesnt work the way he wants. btw, i'm not a big fan of BVB but i like them more than bayern cuz i see a lot of similarity their have with Barcelona which is my love of my live<3. sorry 4 bad english ^~^
Really? I always felt Bayern has more similarities with Barcelona.
I keep forgetting Nuri left in the middle…everything seems so normal. I think leaving and coming back helped him grow. It also makes him appreciate Dortmund more.
