Lahm’s Function: Thinking About Paul Breitner’s Interview to TZ

“Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.” ~ Baz Luhrmann, Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) It is for a reason that I chose this quote from Baz Luhrmann’s song […]

Lahm: One Summer Day In Werneuchen

I wish I was ten again. That way I could apply to go to Philipp Lahm’s Sommercamp because it sure seems like a lot of fun. For the past two years Lahm and his foundation have been organizing the summer camp in two cities, whereas in 2009 it was just in Munich. The more, the […]

The Audi Cup 2011: Bayern vs. AC Mailand

In addition, we have another statement in which he emphasizes the following: Manuel is part of the team, and when the team goes […]

Lahm Reproves die Ultras

The protests of die Ultras (Bayern’s hardcore-and-not-so-sane fans) are starting to get ugly. Despite the talks, it seems like nothing can keep them calm and/or at bay. I believe that we are not talking anymore about expressing opinions at this point. We are talking about people who do not really care about their team and, […]

Bayern vs. Hamburg SV: Liga Total! 2011

Considering the way football tournaments are organized, it seems like there is no pause between seasons. Hence, a feeling of a never-ending festivity. And yet, yesterday’s match made me think of how much I had missed watching Bayern play. A 60-minute match in the Liga Total! 2011, in which Bayern met with Hamburger SV. As […]
