Good, entertaining stuff. Our attacking play was amazing, and Pep had a great sense of when to kill the tempo. Dante is a bit of a concern - my fears that his superb season was a result of Jupp's tactics seems to gain credibility - but I don't mind being back in the van Gaal days of plain outscoring the opponent!

Besides, Gladbach is a really tough opponent and none of their players scored on us. :wink:

I totally agree. I think it looked pretty obvious that we lacked stability in the midfield. In the second half the midfield was non-existent in both teams. It looked like a Premier League game and we conceded way too many clear goal chances

Our attack was brilliant but I think Kroos should be benched to switch back to our last seasons 4-2-3-1

And BTW did anyone else notice Dante doing weird things today? I don't know whats going on with him

honestly, I tried to figure out what was the game plan in the second half, and i'm pretty sure not only me, but sammer hoeness and kalle did not know dafuq was going on, on the pitch. any decent team with a midfield would pummel us into ground.

I thought Kroos had a good match. He was unlucky not to score today: first he pulled a monster save from ter Stegen and then hit the post with a thunderous drive.

Martinez should be brought back into lineup and Gustavo kept as back up, without these players, the midfield just doesn't look right, probably because none of them are defensive minded!

Woah, this feels cool!

definitely... but that's only natural at this point in the season... If in a couple of months, we still have the same problem, then I'd be worried... for now, we can be really satisfied with the positives...

I think this is probably the first game where I see a double handball penalties given by the same player in under a minute.

So there were Alaba, Boateng, Dante, Kirchhoff, Rafinha, Lahm and Javi at the end?

Then Ribery, Robben (both had excellent games) and Mandzu. Mandzu pulled back and form some sort of false 9???

As much as I enjoyed a free flowing equal game it just hurt me bad to see Marti on the bench. :(

I guess the players are gonna be alternated every week. Hopefully. [-o<

Yeah, Kroos had a superb match in my opinion...

That's true but I'm a little bit sceptical with this 4-1-4-1 tactics. It looks brilliant when you are in possession of the ball but it looks scary when you've lost it.

But looking at some other positives... this could be the best BL opener for Bayern in a very long time. Just remember what a poor performance we had 2 seasons ago against the same team :)

I think he has to work a lot more when we are not in possession, if we really intend to play with just Schweini as DM. Other than that he was really solid, I really like his long shots.

When Rafinha came on Lahm moved to midfield, Martinez replaced Kroos and Kirchoff Schweini, it looked like 4-3-3.
