It is a long post, but feel at ease to read and bat.
Also in relation to Guardiola ... He is now in its second season. What would be normal? Correct what was wrong and improve what was right. But no, the team is much worse than last year. Defensive exhibits are even more evident, the midfield is a dead weight, completely static, and the attack has zero creativity. Further, poor aesthetics are frankly. Oh, and such is a possession football ... The Jupp also wore a possession football and pressure across the width of the field (see semi-final vs Barca).Miss this :
Authentic show. A team with a brutal chemistry, all the pieces in their places and it was a festival of football in every game. Were against Stuttgart, were against Barcelona.
The Jupp Heynckes was two seasons ahead of Bayern. The same as the Pep so far (and ongoing).
The Jupp, in two seasons, was twice the final of the LC! Was come, see the fabulous set of players available and build the machine.
In 11/12 (his first season) in the LC group stage, won the group against City, Villareal and Naples. In the 8th, wiped Basel. In the rooms, cleaned Marseille and stockings, and despite the victory on penalties in full Bernabeu, dominated both games against Real. In the end ... It happened Di Matteo and Bayern unfairly lost that final in Munich.
In the league, lost the title for Dortmund (who had also been champion last year) that had been shipped from the LC in the group stage and dedicated to the Bundesliga for the rest of the time.The type team was this :
Lahm Badstuber Boateng Alaba
Faced with a painful time in the chapter of the securities, which made Jupp? Did what any guy with two fingers of forehead would do: detect errors, correct and expand the quality.
For its second season, made surgical signings like: Javi Martinez, Mandzukic, Shaqiri, Dante and Pizarro. Additionally, sent away what did not interest: Olic, Pranijc and others.How did the typical team :
Lahm Badstuber/Dante Boateng Alaba
And there was: van Buyten, Rafinha, Tymoshchuk, Emre Can and Pizarro.
Result: triplet! Sweep was all that was appearing in the way. Since the Estugardas, the Barcelonas, through the Juventus.
In LC, won the group (Valencia, Bate and Lille) and was packing in the qualifiers: Arsenal, Juventus, Barcelona and the super-Dortmund in the Wembley final. Bundesliga, Cup and Champions!
Is this the legacy of Jupp. Won 85% of the games of the season in all competitions, won everything there was to win and took income of all players, even cases like Shaqiri, Pizarro or Gómez, who were never first options.
Now ... Guardiola! Let's see ...
First time, with the benefit of the doubt :
Dismissed Gustavo, why not fit the 'tiki-taka'; Gomez dismissed because it does not fit the 'tiki-taka'; Can Emre dismissed because ... Who knows why.
Was to hire the Götze (here was purely club option and not the coach), who was described as the talent of the century in Germany; fetched Thiago Alcantara because it was stamped 'tiki-taka'.
Result: butchering in the Bundesliga (was the minimum requirement), won the German Cup and the LC ...
Well, Champions won a set against City, Pilsen and CSKA. 5 wins and 1 loss. Excellent record, no doubt.
But then came the playoffs. In the 8th eliminated Arsenal without too much difficulty. In the rooms, the tremideira was already desperate, but has to overcome the poor Man Utd Moyes. In the finals was the culmination of a flawed system and anecdotal choices: Real cleared him tallow with a total score of 0-5, and could be humiliated in full by Munich 0-4.
Since the adaptation of Lahm 6, the restriction of creativity and firepower of Kroos, castration Talent Götze, the embirração with Mandzukic and the biggest problem, the defensive frailties against strong teams in transition. Oh, and also did not know to take advantage of Shaqiri and Hojbjerg.
But okay, it was the first time.
What did then the second time?
Left Kroos, Mandzukic (two of the destroyer Bayern foundations of Jupp) and mid-season, Shaqiri and Hojbjerg ..
Xabi Alonso went to get to the place of Kroos, the Bernat to the place of Alaba (because he had to go to central or central midfielder), the Benatia (which made perfect sense ...and had taken Jupp have had a Benatia to bridge the Badstuber injury), gets its Lewadowski (for that yes, it was ideal, because Mandzukic was no good, bla bla bla ...), always fetched a helpful (and just that) Sebastian Rode and, the icing on the cake ... went for Reina to substitute the Neuer.
Result (so far): team continues with the same defensive frailties, the midfield is an old dead cow and the attack cries for a little bit of creativity and dynamic. To make things worse, practiced football is very poor.
System 3 central, central Alaba, Xabi double-Bastian, Lahm medium, Götze still lost on the field, the output of Hojbjerg ...
Are one after the other. The Guardiola destroyed Jupp machine completely. Claimed the legs to the best team in the world since 2011.
The result of this time is expected to be the same as last season. And if so, I hope that Guardiola is put to walk their inventions.
Bayern Jupp was, in absolute terms, one of the two most perfect teams I've seen in a lifetime (or the results, whether in the aesthetics of your game), alongside the Barcelona 10/11.
Today, Bayern are a shadow of what it was just two years ago. Until the identity managed to lose to a troupe of manolos.
