I agree. And the thing we're not really looking at, but will play a big role if things don't change, is that Bayren has really struggled to score during this CL campaign. They've advanced on away goals almost every leg. With Inter's defense being as they are, they'll be hard-pressed to score away from home this time, so they had better make a definitive statement at home.

Most of Ballack's opposition have this phobia.

I'm Scott. Don't let the title fool you; I.AM.CANADIAN!

   
This will be a really great game.

I think it could go either way but i picked Bayern for minority purposes :D
   
I'm pulling for Bayern. I think Jose is a great manager in the 2 leg matchups because he can set a for-sure game plan to get the OVERALL desired result(ex. 2nd leg v. Barca). I think Bayern has the physical toughness and fire power to bring the pain to Inter, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I personally wanted to see this final when i saw the last 4 teams, i knew Munich would go on, and i honestly think that 1. it would a better game if inter were there, and 2. i dont really like seeing repeats in finals (barca if this year, man utd last year)

I think its gonna be a very tough game to decide, cuz mourinho learned some of his tactics from van gaal, but i think mourinho will wash van gaal
   
As time goes by, Jose has his set of tactics but the roots will still be there. So, it is up to the team's formation and their on-field discipline.

I don't even think Ribery's loss is that bad..

Bayern has played their best matches with out him, and many hard core fans I know are indifferent to weather he stays or leaves..

Yeah, Bayern's bench is fairly deep and the appeal is still on the table. Ribery definitely would be a threat to Inter but I think Bayern can cope if the appeal is shut down. Who knows...maybe he'll win his appeal, have a good showing in the Final and be transferred out for some ridiculous amount to a team with cash to burn, literally.

I don't think he'll win it though.. Direct red = 2 gams off .. And that red was more than deserved, fucking animal crucified Lisandro Lopez..

But with Platini there, you never know.

I think Inter will probably win but you never know with Bayern. On any given day, Robben can play like the best player in the world and if he has his day, Bayern can definitely pull it out.

I wonder about Bayern's strikers. Olic is definitely great, but there's Gomez, Muller, and Klose. Muller to me has his moments, but do you think Gomez will start over him?

History would say that Gomez is better than Muller, but IMO hasn't lived up to expectations (went from a 33 goal season to a 14 goal season so far), that said I'd still start him over Muller and pull him out if he doesn't produce.
