In the immediate shadow of defeat, Alex Ferguson had some choice words to describe Bayern Munich’s win at Old Trafford last night. But what exactly was Fergie getting at when he uttered that cryptic phrase: “Typically German”.

In Bayern’s comeback, was he reminded of the fatalistic poetry of Goethe?


Did he mean a performance of great industry in the spirit of some of the world’d top automakers?



Did the unpredictable ebbs and flows of the tie and its ultimate chaos remind Fergie of his favorite Krautrock bands?


Or did Ferguson find parallels in the less salubrious side of Bayern’s win with the murderous reign of the Third Reich, where the Nazi’s nearly conquered Europe and tried to engineer the extermination of Europe’s Jews?




We were just wondering.
