[edit] Basic Info

Bayern Munich are a German based club playing in the Bundesliga. There one of, if not the, biggest club in the league. They are normally playing in the Champions Leauge where they have had memorable games against the likes of Chelsea and Man Utd in the competition. There on of the better teams on FIFA09, being ranked at 5*.

[edit] Starting 11

There squad is brilliant on the game. They start off with a preferred 4-4-2 formation, basic but effective. In goal is Rensing, one of the best keepers on the game from my experience. He makes a string of world class saves, but then lets it all go un-noticed, but letting a poor shot go past him. The defence is brilliant, Lucio and Demichelis are 2 brilliant centre backs, powerful in the air, quick on the floor and strong tacklers, makes them a match for any striker. Oddo is a quick and able right back who brings alot of pace to the defence, much needed if your coming up against someone who has Henry or Messi on the left. Lahm at left back is one of the quickest in the team. Has the speed to keep up or catch Ronaldo at times, so is one of the better defenders on the game. The midfield is reasonably strong, with Ze Roberto and Van Bommel in the middle. Both brilliant at winning back the ball, just not the best at going forward and being able to have a shot from 25 yards. Schweinsteiger on the right is a brilliant player. He has amazing shot power making him a threat cutting in from the right hand side and his crossing into the strikers is also excellent, a must have in the squad. Ribery is one of the best players on the game on the left hand side. His pace is amazing, having skinned many a defender in his time. He can also come inside to have a shot if he wants, or he can beat his man with ease and float in a dangerous cross, a brilliant player to have playing for you. Luca Toni upfront is one of the most dangerous players on the game, he can win almost anything in the air, giving defenders a torrid time to keep the long balls out. His ability on the floor is brilliant aswell, close ball control and can unleash decent pace aswell when pulling away from defenders. A brilliant striker to have playing for you. His partner is normally Klose upfront, a decent finisher, but not the 2nd best striker in the squad. For me, that goes to Lukas Podolski, who is amazing on the game. His pace is brilliant and he has one of the best left foots on the game. Get him 25 yards out from goal, shooting across the keeper and you will normally be celebrating in a matter of seconds, a brilliant player.

[edit] Reserves

There are a few decent back up players to the squad, depending on who you play upfront with Toni, you either have Klose or Podolski as back up upfront. There is Van Buyten for back up in defence, a very capable centre back who can win just as many headers as either Lucio or Demichelis. Borowski is a decent midfielder going forward, should you want someone in there who can also finish a chance aswell as help make one. Aswell as Podolski/Klose as back up upfront, there is Donovan, signed from LA Galaxy, hes a decent player, just not one who would get into alot of peoples first teams.

[edit] Summary

To summerise, Bayern are one of the best clubs on the game for me, and i would fully recommend trying them out as i think you would find them enjoyable and easy to play with.
