The draws are in, and Bayern Munich will face Villarreal in the Champions League quarter-finals, setting up a potential meeting with Liverpool in the semis (if we make it that far). Meanwhile, the club secured a solid 4-0 win over Union Berlin in the weekend, which was a welcome boost for Julian Nagelsmann following consecutive draws in the league. Plenty to talk about, transfer rumors included.

In this episode, Tom and Ineednoname discuss:

  • What has been working and not working for Julian Nagelsmann in recent weeks?
  • Is the back-three system on its way out at Bayern?
  • Why Alphonso Davies is the most crucial element of Bayern Munich’s Champions League campaign.
  • Does Leon Goretzka immediately return to the team setup after his injury?
  • Which Bayern midfield would Tom field against Liverpool?
  • Talking about potential transfers — Matthias Ginter, Ryan Gravenberch, Mazraoui and the Raiola connection, Djed Spence, Pedro Porro, and more.
  • Why Julian Nagelsmann should’ve given more chances to guys like Tanguy Nianzou and Omar Richards.
  • Closing thoughts with the national team, how we want to see Germany line up with possibly David Raum added to XI and a strike partnership between Thomas Muller and Kai Havertz.
