So Bayern Munich have just been thrashed by Eintracht Frankfurt and the mood around the team is rather grim. The final group stage game of the Champions League is coming up, and while top spot in the group is secure, the team needs to show a good performance in order to recover from a 5-1 loss. Ironically, Erik ten Hag’s United team require the same, setting up a game between two sides beset by problems.

In this episode, INNN and Samrin discuss the following:

  • Why can’t Bayern Munich play good football under Thomas Tuchel?
  • A question of talent — how much does Bayern have? How much does the coach need?
  • The long string of poor performances under Tuchel discussed.
  • Comparing the arguments in favor of Tuchel to the arguments for Carlo Ancelotti and Niko Kovac.
  • The problem of “leadership” and Tuchel’s alienation of leaders.
  • What would it take for Tuchel to get sacked at this point?
  • Should there be rotation versus Manchester United?
  • What happens if Tuchel has another disappointing game?
  • Where should Bayern Munich go from here?
