Well that could have gone better. Embarrassing doesn’t begin to describe what we saw as Bayern Munich succumbed 3-0 to RB Leipzig in this year’s edition of the DFL Supercup. Thomas Tuchel was at a loss to explain why his team is playing such horrible football, so us here at BPW decided to do it for him. Spoiler alert: It’s the coach.

In this episode, INNN and Samrin discuss the following:

  • Why did Benjamin Pavard, who wants to leave Bayern Munich, start this game?
  • Can you even blame the players when the tactics are this bad?
  • How Thomas Tuchel is completely neutering Jamal Musiala.
  • What is going on with the midfield? Why is Joshua Kimmich playing so badly?
  • In defense of Mathys Tel and the chances he missed.
  • Can Harry Kane and/or Thomas Muller really fix this?
  • Why this loss hurts more than usual from a marketing/exposure perspective.
  • Harry Kane is an amazing transfer, but he could bomb because of a bad start.
  • Extremely worrying signs from Thomas Tuchel in the post match presser.
  • Is it time for Bayern to sack Tuchel? What options are available as replacements?
  • Could any new transfers fix this team?
  • Closing out with the goalkeeper issue — is Sven Ulreich good enough? Will Manuel Neuer ever come back?
  • Was it a mistake to let Yann Sommer go? Should Bayern Munich have kept him?
