Bayern stars vent anger over dropped points

The 2008 Oktoberfest failed to match organisers' expectations, largely due to wet, windy and downright cold weather. Bayern similarly blemished their traditionally excellent league record during the period of the beer festival: Saturday's 3-3 draw at home to VfL Bochum was the Reds' solitary point from three matches played during the biggest event on the Munich annual calendar.

"From our point of view, our last three results in the Bundesliga are completely unsatisfactory," a downcast Jürgen Klinsmann fumed after the match in front of a sell-out Allianz Arena crowd. The home side led 3-1 until seven minutes from time, but a stirring Bochum rally saw the Ruhr Valley visitors make off with a point.
