Season Opener

Today marks the season opening for the Bundesliga with a game between FC Bayern München and VfL Wolfsburg. This cover of 11 Freunde - a magazine for 'Füssballkultur' playfully uses the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with various players and a couple WAGS (wives and girlfriends) in the mix. (Interestingly the Beatles largely got their start in Germany often playing concerts in Hamburg's infamous Reeperbahn area. )

VfL Wolfsburg's most expensive player transfers include 10€ million for Simon Kjaer and 9€ million for Mario Mandzukic. Munich received Toni Kroos as a loan return, thus proving once and for all money can't buy everything.

Here's to hoping a repeat performance for FC Bayern winning the Bundesliga again this year.
