KHR has always said that Bayern is keen on working with Guardiola as long as possible, it only depends on the catalan, assuming Bayern maintains his level of excellence.

Seeing as how Pep refused to take longer than one-year deals at Barca, extending his contract this season would be a miracle.

He was and still is in an open battle with Rosell. He knew the "slippery" Rosell would kick him and his Laporta-linked counterparts out the door as soon as he missed a beat. He also feared constantly a clear lack of motivation in the dressing room and he new he wouldn't count on a complete overhaul of the roster at his wish. Bayern has, on the other hand, gone to great lengths to provide him with players at his command or alternatives that match or exceed his expectations.

What Pep is doing to Bayern now is a huge undertaking, and we are just now starting to see it come to fruition. Last year there were times we looked stale, and I questioned if Pep was the right choice. Hindsight is 20/20 of course... and last season was laying the foundation for the future.

Hopefully Pep sees this as a very long term project, to attain "perfect football" with Bayern. It's the perfect scenario for him - skilled players, great finances, management that supports him. Unless he gets bored or we lose motivation, he'll take Bayern to new levels. Extend him now!

Yeah i are it the same way. It looks to me like he enjoys the atmosphere specially in terms of management support. The more specific responsibilities let him concentrate on what he truly likes, which is coaching and tactics.

"Ich will die Spieler bei Bayern München haben, die auch hier spielen wollen. Wenn ein Spieler nicht hier bleiben will, muss er zu einem anderen Verein gehen", fügte der Spanier in aller Deutlichkeit an.

Very clear words by Guardiola about possible winterperiod leavers.. ''I only want players who want to play here, if they dont want to play here, go to another club''.. Winke winke at Hojbjerg and Shaq :)

It would honestly be the biggest shock if Shaq stays past January.

Breaking the Pyramid: How Pep Guardiola Created a Postmodern Monster at Bayern Munich

"If there’s one player who’s most symbolic of Pep’s post-positional philosophy, it’s Alaba. When the Austrian is nominally deployed as the left-sided center back in a back three, he basically plays as what might be the first hybrid center back/attacking midfielder in history."

I see everybody just loves Pep. Reading things like "we are just now starting to see it come to fruition" is just to funny. How people forget before he took over Bayern after they won it's first ever treble. Why change it to this boring style pf play. The team is the best in Germany ( Not to difficult ) But not in the world. Hate to say it but if you watch football their is a couple of teams better.

But really you weren't excited about Bayern taking on Manchester City 10v11 and nearly winning? 7-1 over Roma didn't have enough goals? I agree Bayern isn't always the most exciting to watch, but you can't really have your cake and eat it too. I get the nostalgia over Heynckes and thinking Pep isn't the way forward but I can't stand the twin "Bayern aren't exciting" and "Bayern are not good enough" argument. When we are winning we aren't exciting and when we aren't stomping Manchester United we are shit. Not trying to be Guardiola's defender but please pick ONE argument already and stick to it.

You want to create a team that will just trade punches with Real Madrid be my guest. Bayern could just be a Paderborn 2.0 but I'm pretty sure Madrid would still kick our ass every time. I think the tactical flexibilty Bayern have created is pretty exciting but if 4231 is it for you luckily there is plenty of that in the rest of the Bundesliga.

How is this style of play boring at all? We're scoring loads of goals and conceding barely any and it's very fluid and direct. And importantly, the players seem to like this system. After many of our matches, they thank the coach for preparing them for the match and say how much they like what Pep has added to their game. Also importantly, the board seems to love Pep and what he brings to the team.

What does Pep have to do with Bayern winning the treble under a different coach anyways? So many things lined up perfectly to make that happen. Let's not pretend like everything was going just peachy before he came. Let's not forget that when we signed him in December 2012, Bayern were still seen as the losers of the last two Bundesliga's and chokers after losing 2 CL finals in 3 years.
