Bayern Munich big slide in Bundesliga continues Bayern Munich's 1-3-2 result in 6 Bundesliga games (1-3-1 in last the last 5) is the worst since L-T-L-T-L-T-L in late 2001. Bayern Munich was averaging 2 points a game through 17 (10-2-5 = 35 points) in late December at the Xmas break. It was on track to earn 2*5 = 10 points in the next 5 games for a total of 45 through 22. That would have put Bayern Munich two points clear of second place Hertha Berlin. It earned only 4 points in those 5 games --- a deficit of 6. Instead of 45 points, it has only 39 points. Bayern Munich is now down to fifth place (39 points in 22 games) to the second and last of the UEFA Cup/Europa Cup slots. Wolfsburg has moved up to fourth (39 with better goal difference). There are two teams within three points (Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart) hoping to duke it out with BM for 5th through 7th place. 8th place Schalke (35) and 9th place Borussia Dortmand (34) are now within hailing distance of Bayern Munich given its horrible recent form. Is Bayern Munich moving toward being a midtable team? The next Bundesliga game (there is a midweek DFB Pokal game against Bayer Leverkusen) is at home on Saturday against weak Hannover 96 (hello Steve Cherundolo). Hannover 96's goals against (41) is almost as bad as Borussia M'Gladbach (43). Maybe Landon could score against Steve? The team has scored one first half goal in the last 8 games / 360 first half minutes. I would think that Bayern Munich management would want a coach who could figure out how to get his high paid players to be ready at the start of each game. Bayern Munich still is a mess in the Bundesliga. It should be in first but it is in fifth with some chance of falling to ninth in only 7-8 total games.
