Guardiola is in the phase of proving himself as a world-class coach. This Bayern period will give more clearer picture about his qualities.
I see you talk a lot about his work methods, his philosophy(or I should better ideology)...
Well, some things are clear. Bad things have happened in the last 2 months literally over one night at Bayern, ie Hertha match where we've become a German champions.
Then came that incredible statement of our coach that we are done with Bundesliga from his point of view. For me, that was a trigger of bad performances which bring us to the consequences of bad games against Hoffenheim, Augsburg, Dortmund, United and finally as a cherry on the cake this painful defeat against Real Madrid.
If we read German websites, Guardiola right after Dortmund match(correct me if I'm wrong) told that he changed Bayern preparations and training intensity right after the tittle was secured, thereby hoping the team will get some rest and better concentrate on United clash.
The Catalan admited that he did that and that he did really wrong where players responeded completely opposite.
Our tempo and ideas were lost, Guardiola decided to experiment with early 20 century halfs by putting Alaba and Rafinha/Lahm there, we couldn't do anything what we were doing until the Hertha match.
Now, one is sure - Guardiola will STAY Bayern coach in the next season and probably in his 3rd year of contract, but...
Yesterday I've seen one headline in tz-online where Dressen and Rummenigge are caught after the game, and under says: "We will get active on the transfer market and we won't ask for the price" - highlighting that Guardiola will have untied hands to buy whatever he thinks is neccessary.
Okay, our board think(or just pretending) that the problem is in our squad, they don't possess those qualities which our coach expected to see, etc.
But, how can you see they can't we everything was just fine until the match vs. Hertha? I know that we haven't reached exact level as our coach wanted, but it worked just good in the Bundesliga. Now it's not. How is that possible?
Well, our coach has confessed another thing in the last week - "I have seen some things wrong, I haven't met entirely German football culture and I have to find out how to adjust my ideas with the German way of seeing/playing football - balance those 2 different ways."
That's maybe the biggest of all problems - Guardiola knows that he can't do the same thing in Bayern as he did in Barcelona because Bayern don't have that kind of players, those players aren't raised and educated in La Masia and on its way, he must understand that it's time for him to learn something new about football and try to understand how Catalan view of football is not the only way to mix up the things outside of Spain.
When and if Guardiola decide to change some of his ideas and modify his style, perhaps he might have a chance to prove himself outside of Barcelona.
The Catalan must be aware of one thing - Bayern won everything because his German mentality, strong character, team spirit, aggresive approach. They didn't need Messi as alfa & omega of the club, Iniesta and Xavi as Messi's supporters.
He admited his 'crime' for this disaster - that's fair and okay for me. But... It won't be good enough until he gets familiar with Germany and its football culture.
His bad German is the less important thing in this story. Germans don't give a fúck when "eine ausländer spricht" poor German. They only care about work, strong will, arbeit commitment and results of that arbeit.
