I have a ready made manager for them. German, experienced in Bundesliga and now CL. A bit of a ****, but entertaining antics. Currently at Liverpool.

Another option for them: English, wears a gillet, win ratio at a top club was "second to none", also a ****. Currently jobless so is available to start tomorrow.

Another option: An italian bloke. Won the Prem last year. Or a Porteguese bloke nicknamed the special one.

Let me know which one you want, Bayern.

heard it will be the young bloke at Hoffenheim
Could be a wise appointment. They need someone to see them through the transition of phasing out the older players (Robben, Ribery) and bringing the younger ones through. They also need someone to help them become intense and driven again. Every time I've watched them this season they've looked devoid of ideas, lacking in intensity and quite generous at the other end. Yet people say Pep is a fraud, Ancelotti took his team backwards!

This sounds exactly like AVB's job disc riptide was at Chelsea, that's no job for a young coach to take on.

Schalke 1 - Leverkusen 0. Goretzka with the goal. For those that were keen Breel Embolo is back playing this year and is up top now. I can't believe Schalke are going to let Goretzka go on a free. If he doesn't go to Bayern (which would make sense from a getting younger and gobbling up German talent perspective) I hope we are in for him.

Leon Bailey has been impressive since coming on at half. Good goal too but took a brutal deflection off Nastasic.

Brandt was really off, very sloppy subdued performance. It seems his head might not be in the right space. Though I found it funny that Leverkusen subbed him after his best spell of the game.

bayern looking a lot like manchester united post fergie, old, slow and carrying an over a hill second striker type that is destroying the looker room. I love it, for 2 reasons, one I hate it when one side dominates a domestic league for a considerable amount of time and my boss at my first job was a German Bayern fan who was a total dick to work for.

Soft pen given to BVB as RB lead them 3-1 following the template. Stream just stopped but Auba is taking it. Looks a good game and better watch than this Arse crap.

Rebic has just scored an absolute belter for Frankfurt. Prince Boeteng also playing for Frankfurt and Veljkovic for Bremen.

Dortmund getting humped 0-3 on their own patch by Bayern Munich tonight. What's happened to them?

Dortmund pulled one back, with Pulisic beating two men in the corner with some impossibly quick feet and then laying off to Bartra who curled in an excellent finish.

Sancho came on with 15 minutes left to play and hasn't seen too much of the ball, but when he has been on it he has used it very well.

they got the same exact problems that Liverpool have, mostly that they play a high defensive line and their midfield offers zero protection. Which gets compounded as there defenders and GK constantly make boneheaded mistakes.
