Took three matches but Bayern finally got their first win of '15, 2-0 at Stuttgart. Alaba had a hell of a strike on a free kick. One more match to get ready for UCL Round of 16, cannot wait!!!

Werder Bremen has moved from eighteenth to a tie for seventh in just four matches. That is impressive.
In other news, Dortmund is currently sixteenth, where they would be in a relegation playoff.

That was the type of match where they have given away points all season but they now have seven fields in two games.
I do want to see them relegated but if they had to pick things up doing so just before UCL returns is the best way to do it.

Bayern has fourteen goals over the past three games. Was it really so much to ask for one of them to have come last Tuesday?

What could have been a big weekend eventually led to no movement in the race for the Champions/Europa spots during Matchday 22
-#3 Gladbach converted on a corner in the final seconds for a 1-1 draw at Hamburger
-#4 Schalke and #8 Werder Bremen drew 1-1. It broke Werder Bremen's five match winning streak, but they still have sixteen points in six matches after sitting at the bottom of the table after Matchday 16 when they had earned only fourteen points
-#5 Augsburg and #6 Leverkusen also drew 1-1 and remained in the two Europa slots
-#7 Hoffenheim turned out to be the losers of the weekend. They also earned a point, but it came against #16 Freiburg. Really blew a chance to make up some ground on the competition.
Gladbach remains third, only one point ahead of both Schalke and Augsburg. Leverkusen remains two points behind Schalke for a Champions slot but only three points clear of Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen for the final Europa slot.
Meanwhile, Dortmund continued their winning ways, taking their third consecutive victory. It was 3-2 against dead last Stuttgart and one of the others came against #16 Freiburg so it is not as if they are beating world beaters but they do have some breathing room over the relegation slots now and have won three straight ahead of their UCL match-up this week. Dortmund is now tied for eleventh, although they remain eight points away from even an Europa slot.

I just started working for the new Bayern Munich office in NYC on the side and one of the first things they have asked me to do is create an official Bayern fan club in Charlotte. I now have an official Bayern Munich fan club and a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/fcbcharlotte). I am working with OMB and Waldhorn to arrange a viewing parties for the club. If any of you guys are interested in joining the fan club please fill out the form here and I will send you an invite directly from Bayern. Joining is free and there are some cool perks like discounts on gear, access to the NYC office, free prizes and the only way to buy game tickets. Tell any friends that may be interested as well.
On a Panther related note, Graham Gano is a Bayern fan and interested in the fan club as well.
