As some Bayern Munich fans have navigated a very tenuous offseason and preseason, a segment of the supporters developed some negative thoughts about the upcoming campaign.

Whether it is the lack of funds available to splurge in the transfer market or the absence of progress in negotiations with some key players or even the stream of injuries the club has dealt with, some fans are worried about what might happen in 2021/2022.
