The "What if?" Thread

Postby FCBayernMunchen » Tue Jun 12, 2018 5:30 pm

Thought this might be interesting: change a significant moment in the past and see what others think would have happened.

I'm thinking football, but I suppose it can be used for anything.

To start: What if we had sold Ribery for 100m in 2010?

BALE would have costed 200m
Neymar 350m
And so on

Good point... What about Bayern?

I can see two scenarios:
1) We'd have lost one of our most important players, ajd possibly others would have followed. We'd never have had 2012 and 2013.
2) 100m was a lot of money at the time, and we could have ended up even better. Imagine if LVG won the CL, recent football history might have been completely different: Bayern, United, Netherlands...

I think we would've been worse off. For one, we wouldn't have spent the entire 100m and I don't think we would've bought an even higher calibre replacement (no chance with Kaka, Ronaldinho, Eto'o and the likes).

It might have led us to signing players like Özil, Naldo back then and even Neuer much earlier. Squad average quality might have increased but Ribéry's contribution over the years were unprecedented - his value to us was not unlike Messi and Ronaldo. In addition, he would have strengthened whoever were buying him to unreachable levels.

To me, if we had signed Ribéry for 100m, it would have been a bargain considering where he got us. So also by that logic, selling him at the same amount wouldn't have been worth it.

My question: what if Deisler and Götze had fulfilled their potential? :cry:

I don't think Götze would have made much of a difference. I expect we'd have won the same titles. Maybe, maybe one more CL but I don't he'd have been enough to make the difference.

I don't remember Deisler well enough.

What if the linesman had pulled up his flag when Ronaldo was offside last season against Bayern moments before Neuer broke his leg?

Ancelotti would have won the CL and this season would have been trophyless. We'd have gotten rid of Ancelotti either late in the season or now

What if Kroos did not pick that injury vs Juve (UCL QF 1st leg 2013) and Robben stayed benched?

So then he'd have been fired and we'd have gotten Heynckes and come up against Real Madrid, with Neuer in goal. Then what? ;)

Then we'd have won the CL in 2013 anyway and Kroos would still be playing for Bayern. Robben might not.

How do you figure with Kroos? Agree on the rest

Yep. I think if Neuer was in goal and no other factors present we'd have gone through.
