Today’s Goal Monday isn’t so much a goal as it is a game, but we’re sure you’ll love it anyway. On Matchday 5 of the 1999/2000 Bundesliga season, a little bit of true football madness went down.
As Kris (who by now is an honorary Rekordmeister submitter) suggested this, here’s her short description of what went down for those who don’t speak auf Deutsch: “Kuffour knocked out Kahn, then Dreher twisted his knee. Left back Tarnat had to go in goal and the game ended with Kuffour scoring the winner goal.”
This week’s goal monday is a bit different from previous weeks - this time we asked YOU to submit your favorite goals via our twitter and then we picked our favorite of the bunch. There were quite a few Robben and Ribery submissions but we decided on this goal - and you can probably see why!
Every goalkeepers nightmare come to life through the footwork of Carsten Jancker. Jancker may not have found the net as many times as his striking partner, Giovane Elber, but he did manage this memorable goal. Enjoy!
We may have been a bit overly excited about Bayern’s first BuLi game and as a result forgot Goal Monday - but it’s back and with a vengeance!
Today we take a moment (one of many, many to come) to look back on the one, the legend, Gerd Mueller.
The ’70s were certainly an era of immense glory for Bayern. The team didn’t just become DFB Pokal and German champions, they also won the European Cup in ‘74, ‘75, and ‘76 due in no small part to Der Bomber himself.
May 17th, 1974, Bayern played Atletico Madrid in the first of three successive final wins. Watch and enjoy as Gerd taps in the second and third goals of the 4 - 0 win.
In honor of Bastian Schweinsteiger’s birthday, we thought it only suitable that today’s Goal Monday be about him. We’re still keeping it a little old school and rewinding back to the 2006/2007 Champion’s League campaign.
October 18th 2006, Bayern was in group stages and set to play their first leg away against Sporting CP. Hopes were set high for a win, as Bayern had come away with six points from their previous two group stage games. They didn’t disappoint.
In the 19th minute, from 30 yards out, Bastian fired in a right footed goal that would ultimately win the match. He was also sent off in the 46th minute, but… you win some you lose some. And win they did!
Bayern finished first in their group with 12 points and went on to beat Real Madrid in the first knock-out round before being defeated by AC Milan in the quarterfinals.
The Bundesliga season is fast approaching and with it come Saturday (or Sunday) highs and lows of which we dare not speak that leave any Bayern fan with a post-game hangover to last a day or two.
We’ve concocted the perfect hangover remedy: Goal Mondays!
Every Monday here at Rekordmeister, we’re going to post a memorable Bavarian goal to tide you over for the next week’s exciting game. Today is no exception!
Giovane Elber was one of Bayern’s most notable strikers, tapping in one great goal after another. In the first leg of the quarterfinals of Bayern’s successful 2000/2001 Champion’s League campaign, the team had managed to score a 1-0 over Manchester United at Old Trafford. One more goal at home would ensure that United had a mountain to climb if they wanted to make it to the semis.
At the 5’ mark, Elber gave us just that. Enjoy this goal from April 18th, 2001!
