Good Morning Fear the Wall.

Before we get to the results from yesterday’s Champions League matches, I’d like to speak briefly on a much more important matter. As you all know, a very contentious election took place last night that has shaken the fanbase to its very foundations. As the vote tallying carried on long into the night, the lead switched back and forth, but in the end... Thomas Delaney defeated Mahmoud Dahoud.

The fake news polls were saying that Dahoud had it in the bag, and in fact as the early results came in, it looked like Dahoud was going to win handily. At one point his lead rose to as high a margin as 54-46. The lead looked so secure that, in error, the Chicago Daily Tribune called the race early, as demonstrated by this very real picture:

But once the votes were tallied, it was not Mo Dahoud but Thomas Delaney who was victorious, with 75 votes to 61. With this election result, the Delaniacs were victorious, and now the media’s attention will shift towards trying to guess who will make up his cabinet.

Champions League Results

Oh, yeah, I guess there were some Champions League matches or whatever yesterday. Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayern Munich were the Bundesliga’s representatives in the Champions League, and both did quite a nice job carrying the league’s name. The foals ran completely roughshod over Shakhtar Donetsk with a whopping 6-0 win.

While Bayern Munich also scored six goals and ultimately defeated RB Salzburg 6-2, the match was much closer than that scoreline would have you believe. Salzburg matched Bayern stroke for stroke for much of the match, with the scoreline level at 2-2 going into the final 15 minutes. It was only after Jerome Boateng scored off a corner in the 79th minute that the wheels came off for Salzburg, and Bayern rattled off four goals in the final 10 minutes or so to win 6-2.

The Daily Buzz

Do you think that Bayern and Gladbach playing so well is a sign that the Bundesliga is getting stronger?
