Frustration gnawed at the Bayern stars as they left the Allianz Arena. “We gave it everything, but 1-1 just isn’t good enough,” Mark van Bommel fumed after the draw with Schalke. “No-one can say we weren’t trying,” added Miroslav Klose, “we’re having no luck at all right now. We tried to make our own luck, but it didn’t work out.” Louis van Gaal summed it all up: “It’s frustrating.”

Yet again, his team controlled their opponents and had chances to win, but yet again, the full three points eluded them. “We didn’t play well for the first ten minutes, but we dominated the game after that,” the head coach summarised, “we had chances, but we kept coming up inches short. I’m really frustrated.”
