Yes, that is a foolish thing to say after only a few matches, but ever since I saw a Bayern Munich preseason match and my reaction was "damn!", I have been pondering the possibility that come next April everyone may be talking about how the best team in Europe isn't one of the Champions League semifinalists but rather Bayern, who have improved their squad beyond belief with the additions of Franck Ribery, Luca Toni, and Miroslav Klose. Last year they were uncharacteristically bad enough that they did not qualify for the Champions League, but early returns look like they will be one of the very best, and most pleasing to watch, teams in Europe this year. They are expected to win the Bundesliga at a trot and the UEFA Cup at a canter. Certainly anything can happen, and a handful of matches does not a season make, but again I wonder if come April the best footy in Europe will be on display by a non CL team.
Check them out if you can- they are playing some serious joga bonito and scoring in bunches- they are a pleasure to watch in their current iteration.
