    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    As for Owomoyela starting, that was meant to be with him as a rightback and Piszczek on the right wing. But that's a little too defensive and Mourinho-esque, probably won't happen.

    Fair enough, it's probably better that way. Better to keep it tight at your own end and to go at Bayern's weak defence whenever you have the ball. It should be a fantastic match, can't wait to see this one.

    Following The Win In Wolfsburg, All Eyes Turn To The Big One



    Jürgen Klopp was a relieved man, "If you want to stay at the top, then you have be able to cope with stress." He was speaking after a hard-fought yet deserved 3-1 win in Wolfsburg. Sports Director Michael Zorc continued the theme as he added, "we played well, and yet it still got a little bit tight at 2-1, but the win is surely well-deserved."

    Ilkay Gündogan, when asked about the forthcoming game against Bayern, said "We want to thrill 80,000 fans and are in good shape to win the game. We are three points ahead and will do all we can to maintain that lead. Michael Zorc added, "Both teams are in top form. We currently have 66 points which is the same as last year at this stage."

    Thank you for posting.



    Knowing Klopp, I don't think so.




    I agree. I just hope our guys don't crack under the pressure.

    Pick a side...Lahm was unremarkable yeasterday, Alaba....he's prone to errors, and Boa had a part to play in the goal conceded. Neuer can't save his butt every time, most but not every.

    (in my amateur opinion)I see an offensive assault by both sides

    Best team wins..whoever it is. I almost feel like this is a 'final'

    Relative to our normal play we would take a step back in attack and a step forward in defence.

    Didn't see Bayern yesterday, but I believe you.

    I get the feeling both sides are going to show up on Wednesday though.

    Looks like Perisic won't be available due to injury..

    Unimportant, boring game. Both clubs might as well field their B teams.

    BVB lists Perisic as "questionable." If he can play, he'll be on the roster, but I don't think he was ever going to start this match anyhow.

    We'll need Grosskreutz's defensive play more.

    Think the whole Goetze thing is a ruse? BvB doesn't do that as I recall

    A ruse for what? There's no need for any ruse.

    No one knows if Götze will play or not. Simple fact.

    I honestly don't expect him to play.

    I do expect them to put him on the match day roster though.

    I don't think it really matters, you all have compensated well with his absence. Do you suppose if he goes on it will only be if TARFU?

    It's a shame this game is on at the same time as 96 - Wolfsburg, would have loved to watch it.

    Good luck!
