Super fast def line up... as I think mutu said...

3.4.3 total football with ten Hag.

Pavard Lucas Alaba
Kimmich. Davies
Tolisso Thiago

Gnabry. Lewa. Sane

I would fully support this lineup. Plenty of speed, an aggressive libero to step in and snuff out attacks through the middle and a scary front line

He has convinced me so far. I hope he keeps getting games at LB. Provided he continues to do well then we promote him to LW next season at Coman’s expense or maybe send him on loan somewhere and he comes back like Gnabry.

This kid had no right to play THIS GOOD out of position against what are, arguably, two of the best attacking wonderkids out there right now. And, yet, he did not allow anything on that side of the pitch. Anything

Are we really going off script and we re going to say that our scouting team actually found a hidden gem? Surely this cannot be possible

Is it really "out of position" by now?
Games in that excuse of a league in the MLS don't count. This is adult's football now.

Yeah, you are definitely right. Credit to the Canadian coaches who started playing him at wing back(though I am sure Bayern's would've picked up on that as well). It's clear that the kid has great defensive abilities and, on top of that, excellent dribbling. I really wish he took that shot in the second half when Coman crossed it to him. A goal from him would've definitely sent the stadium through the roof.

The scary part about him is that he is still very raw! He is not closed to the finished article and could either be the next great wing back similar to Marcelo and Ashley Cole or maybe he furthers his attacking abilities and becomes one fo the best wing forwards in his generation. I hope Bayern gives him time in both areas so he can get a good feel for both positions.

Yep, agreed. My feeling with Phonzie was in general that I'd rather him be a winger but that if playing LB got him on the pitch, so be it (Like with Kimmich, I get the feeling that he has that quality where he just needs to be in the game - position is secondary at times) - but now, yeah, I'm with you here. I've seen enough at LB to say that I'd be happy if he only ever played there for the rest of his time with us. It's just obviously working, no need to fix what's not broken.

Though it would be kinda nice to see him get some reps against a lower-level opponent at LW once we get healthy and can get Alaba back at LB again, haha. Still curious to see how he'd do now that he's so been noticeably improving his overall game

I am going to say this but he is currently our best defender and he isn't even a natural defender. Like Hernandez, he attacks the opponent instead of back paddling 50 meters and staying 5 meters away from his opponent to let him freely do what he wants with comfort. Instead, he doesn't give his opponent time and actually tries to take the ball from the opponent's feet. He even blocks crosses which none of our other defenders usually do (because they are a KM away :P).

His team mates should actually learn from his defensive approach. Although in this match, everyone was better than usual in pressing.

Watch these examples (match time)

7:50 Doesn't give Sancho one cm and constantly follows him, forcing him to lose the ball

61:40, 84:27, at 84:58 he stands his ground, "You shall not pass" mode, back peddling to the penalty area deactivated :P , 87:27.

Agreed. It seems like he is getting some defensive tips from Cholo himself (i.e Hernandez). He is going into players with his speed and body, not waiting for them to come at him.

keep playing Phonzie at LB, send alaba to CDM since also has always wanted to play there. Alaba has the passing, defense, distribution and canon left foot to shoot from distance and distribute the ball. Kimmich back to RB, he is world class there.

A very good alternative.
