Ah the signs of Autumn – shorter evenings, the leaves turning red and the footballers of Bayern Munich breaking out the Lederhosen.

The Bayern boys living it up has become one of those perennial stories – like signs of summer or a guide to festivals.

Because who doesn’t find it cheering to watch Pep Guardiola and the lads have a fine old time at the annual beer festival.

Here’s Robert Lewandowski and his partner Anna Stachurska enjoying a good quaff – Ireland football fans can only hope he suffers a freak three-week-long hangover.

The boss relaxes with his wife, while World Cup hero Philip Lahm brings the whole family along.

There’s Xabi Alonso, irritatingly perfect as always.

And everyone gets into the spirit of the day with traditional outfits.

We said it last year and we’ll say it again, the Bayern team have more fun than the rest of us.

Bayern’s Medhi Benatia, Franck Ribery, Jerome Boateng, Kingsley Coman, David Alaba of FC Bayern Muenchen and Katja Butylia.
