How can be someone happy with the overall team performance ? It's AEK. We struggled for 60 minutes, scored 2 fast goals and after that..nothing.

Kovac again taking off James and Gnabry, but Robben, who made 1 good pass for the whole game (for Kimmich in the first half) must play 90 minutes. And he is going to start again next game, that's for sure.

Why we need Martinez against teams like AEK ? Besides the goal, he almost don't have impact on the game, cleared couple of balls, but this can be done by everyone else in this team as good. This game was build for Renato - fast midfielder who is taking the ball from defense and delivering it to James/Thiago or the wings 5 times faster than Javi. I saw one funny situation when Rafinha (hands down, one of the best players today) was open on the left side, but Javi did not pass him the ball, because he wasn't sure that he can hit him with vertical pass. It's not his fault, but Kovac should leave the PSP4 and put the right players on the pitch.

True!

I'm not even complaining... Just

1.) saying my assessment was not pessimistic at the time but logical

2.) claiming that it’s ridiculous to throw it in my face now... You’re always wiser after the game... Still saying those goals were kinda lucky and not at all consequential...

What I think a few of you are forgetting is we're not going to suddenly turn from those terrible performances we had to world class games. It's a gradual process and this was quite a routine win. It's an encouraging sign although the squad remains limited.

Plus we have a new coach as well...

Great atmosphere, AEK maybe broke their record with attendance and Bayern fans were great as well, very loud singing constantly!

Yes but there are still tactical issues at hand. And they are worrying.

People continue to run behind the CBs' back as A. the space between the lines is too big, B. the pivot fails to pressure the playmaker and C. the CBs themselves are too far up the pitch.

Gnabry is playing on the wrong side of his foot. Rafinha is playing on the wrong side of his foot and Thiago is playing on the wrong side of his foot. How exactly are we expecting crosses other than three fingered shots (or Rabonas)?

Robben is forcing Kimmich to go deep and relenting turnovers. If we get caught with Sule vs a fast winger, we are in deep problems.

There's no pressing. With Guardiola and Heynckes the team recognized poor performances when they let opponents create plays without blocking or threaten their possession. WIth Kovac everyone seems fine with letting opponents roam free in the attacking third. Kovac not only needs to make the wingers track back; everyone has to pressure opponents to avoid having to run half the pitch in the first place.

Is it me or there is something going on between Lewandowski and Robben? Quite a few times Robben made runs after playing what he thought was a 1-2 touch combination with Lewandowski and Robert either held the ball or turned the other way with no option, and Robben's body language said it all.

Makes sense, and in the time of crises (what crisis?) it shows at plain daylight.

Yeah, pretty much...IMO Lewy and Robben have always had some issues or at least don't seem to be on the same page or get along too often...It's just less noticeable the better things are going. When one or both (or the team) starts struggling it becomes more apparent to me

Was amazing to see Bayern for the first time, I was a bit too drunk during the game so I did not take any pictures really, just enjoyed the magnificant atmosphere.
