Not long ago, people still talked about how Paris is following the Champions League runner-up Tottenham's footsteps the previous season. After the 1-4 fiasco at Hoffenheim, the life of the new triple champion Bayern was actually not easy.
After nine months of undefeated and winning the Triple Crown all the way, the world football are impressed by Bayern's dominance. But this long-lost defeat has also exposed the shortcomings of the Bundesliga Banba, which on a deeper level cannot even be solved by the coach.
As the champion coach who "turns the tide and helps the building to fall", Flick's coaching ability has been unanimously recognized by the industry and universally supported by the club. But no matter how good the championship coach is, he is bound to have his shortcomings. Even if Guardiola and Mourinho are also mixed, Frick is naturally not immune.
Fans familiar with Bayern should be very clear that Flick's shortcomings are relatively conservative in the use of personnel, and the substitutions in the game are also somewhat lagging, and they are accustomed to continuing to use a main lineup. This can be classified as a "cup coach" to some extent. A stable system tactics and a steady employment strategy are usually more secure under the single elimination system.
Last season, due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, Bayern actually continued to fight in one line after the restart of the league: only one German Cup semi-final was mixed in the late league, and the German Cup final was held only 8 days after the end of the league. After that, Bayern also experienced a month of rest before ushering in the Champions League knockout.
In the case of single-line combat, it is possible to change 5 people in a single game, and all players can get enough rest opportunities. This also largely conceals Frick's shortcomings of "a set of main forces to fight the world".
But by this season, none of the three loaned players were bought out, the midfielder Thiago was released, and Koeman suffered from home isolation, which immediately stretched Bayern's relatively abundant lineup. The 120-minute battle against Sevilla in midweek became a catalyst.
Davis's success may give many people the illusion that Frick likes to use teenagers, but in fact, Davis's transformation into a left back is the foundation laid by the Kovac era. With the exception of Zilkeze who can occasionally come on as a substitute for Lewandard, Frick did not really give the teenagers too many opportunities last season.
The first three games of this season also proved this to a certain extent: the only up-and-coming young player in the new season is Musharra, who scored in the first round, but that was also because Koeman was unable to play and Bayern Munich. Leading the score.
In the 120-minute battle with Seville just three days ago and the German Cup with Dortmund three days later, Flick only rotated the three main players from the previous game. This is better than no rotation, and in the end it proved that the actual effect is not good: Lewan and Gretzka appeared in the second half soon, and only Lucas got the opportunity to rest.
In contrast, Mby, Richards, Kusans and Fein did not get a chance to play in this game. It is worth mentioning that none of these young players played in the Bayern second team's Bundesliga the day before, so physical fitness is not a problem. But the latter two did not even make the big list, which also reflects from the side that Frick does not trust the young players enough.
You must know that Fein performed very well in the Bundesliga last season, and Marseille had also wanted to loan Kusanz before, but let these two young players stay in the team but not let them play, obviously it is easy to arouse dissatisfaction. Just after losing to Hoffenheim, Kussanz liked a tweet on social media calling for him more playing time.
But Frick doesn't trust the young players, which is totally understandable. If Bayern has enough depth in the lineup, none of this is a problem. But it is precisely the Bayern management's "too frugal" business philosophy, coupled with the "mysterious operation" of sports director Salihamidzic, that makes Frick's non-fatal shortcomings repeatedly magnified.
Of course, considering Flick's character that still demands to be suppressed after taking the lead in the Champions League final, it does not rule out that he did not use more teenagers in pursuit of a perfect winning streak. If you look at it this way, then the end of the record can be considered a burden to be able to make him more bold in rotation, which is a good thing.
When Pochettino dismissed class, many voices thought that he had brought the team too well. Now Frick is also experiencing such a backlash. Robery won the Triple Crown in his first season after leaving the team, which also made Bayern's senior management overconfident in the current lineup strength.
But in fact, in addition to the introduction of Sane, Bayern's rotation has not been substantially strengthened. The departure of Perisic, Coutinho and Odriosola left the team's winger, midfielder and right back positions vacant. If Perisic’s departure can be compensated by Sane, then Coutinho, who can play multiple positions, can’t be replaced. Although Odriosola didn’t have many chances to play last season, he could eventually make it. The main right back gets the chance to rest. Under such a major premise, Bayern has let Thiago a low price for "adult beauty", and further weakened the midfield.
In the UEFA Super Cup, Flick only replaced Sane with Torizo in the regular 90 minutes, which also nakedly proved that the team was unavailable. In the loss to Hoffenheim, after Paval, who was already unable to run, was replaced, Kimmich had to serve as a right-back, even if he was as strong as "Brother Chicken", he was exhausted in the game.
However, on the bright side, this 1-4 may also allow Bayern's senior management to see that the first team is under-staffed, so as to make up for it in the last week. But considering that Salihamidzic is the sports director, everything is still hard to say.
"Soldiers and horses do not move food and grass first", as the sports director responsible for signings is equivalent to the team's logistics captain. But at least from the performance of the past few months, Sally's performance is not qualified.
The transfer window has been open for nearly three months. The shortcomings of the right back that Bayern exposed last season have not been strengthened. The midfielder has become weaker and weaker. The fourth winger can't even find a target...
With Durst basically signing Barcelona, Bayern's previous self-confidence has become a joke. With only one week left in the transfer window and everyone knows that Bayern is eager to reinforce the right back, Bayern is likely to encounter the embarrassment of the opponent sitting on the ground again. When you can't even afford Durst, why do you bring in the more expensive Aarens from Norwich?
The purchase of Davis is Sally's "death-free gold", but other than that, his performance is unsatisfactory. Now Bayern has long lost its "Guan Xuan Ren" style. Every time it buys people, it makes a lot of trouble in the city, and it often ends up in the end. Sitting on the triple crown halo, but making no progress during the long transfer period, his business capabilities are naturally questioned again.
The worse result is as "Bild" said-"Flick can only rely on 14 world-class players for rotation." With a more intensive schedule than in previous years, the players will become physically fatigued and mentally tired. Coupled with Frick's habit of employing the "main force" style, the collapse does not seem to be unfounded, after all, the Champions League group stage has not yet begun.
更糟糕的结果是，正如“ Bild”所说：“ Flick只能依靠14位世界一流的球员进行轮换。”与前几年相比，如果安排的日程更加紧张，球员将变得身体疲劳和精神疲劳。再加上弗里克惯用“主力部队”风格的习惯，倒塌似乎并非没有根据，毕竟，冠军联赛小组赛还没有开始。
Statistics show that in less than three days, 9 Bayern players played more than 150 minutes, and 5 players including Gnabry, Muller and Kimmich played 210 minutes. Three days later, Bayern will face Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup, who has rested for one more day. The prospects are equally worrying. The loss is not the end. What is more worrying is that Kimmich, Gnabry and others suffered injuries due to excessive fatigue.
Salihamidzic said in an earlier interview that "Bayern has many transfer targets", but how many players can be introduced before the transfer deadline will also determine to a large extent whether their journey to defend their title is smooth.
