      Imagine Kane leaving to go to Bayen to win trophies and he takes the power of Spursy with him

      Me too. Agree. They play a similar style to us. Not exactly but close. Absolutley dominated bayern today.  5 pts clear. Let's see if he can get them over the line.

      Would it be the first time Bayern dont win the league since Jurgens Dortmund?

      How does he actually play? I can imagine with Xabi it's a possession based style.

      Cant ignore the achievement he's pulled off with Leverkusen if they do go on to win the league.

      They seem so pretty in their pragmatism do Leverkusen.

      Since Jürgen announced his impending departure, I find it impossible to entertain anyone else for the job.

      Watched the second half and Bayern looked laboured...Xabi A. looks a pretty cultured coach and getting it done is what it's all about.
      He's got a good vibe about him.

      Yup, not many managers around that can claim this sort of ability (1), and none for a decade who've broken the stranglehold Bayern have had on German football. Leverkusen are also without Boniface, Palacios and their CB who is at Afcon, yet beat Bayern comfortably today, which was all the more satisfying given Kane and Tuchel were.on the receiving end. Two contrasting styles of running a club and managing a football team.

      Yes it would. My 10 year old daughter had never seen some one else winning the league. Last year it was close, maybe this year...

      I wouldn't say it's so possession-heavy.
      Since Kloppo announced his departure, I have watched a few Leverkusen games. It's really very similar to our game. And above all very variable, sometimes dominating possession of the ball, sometimes standing deeper and countering.
      Overall, they usually don't press quite as high as we do, they stand a little lower and are very compact.
      Trying to get Xabi to be Jürgen's successor is a no-brainer.

      Tuchel is without a doubt losing his job after that game. Amongst the most overrated coaches on the market in my opinion. So abrasive with everyone around him too. Clearly, the players are not fighting for him at all. Down 2-1 against relegation contenders VFL Bochum and the team is playing without even an ounce of urgency and spirit. They don't even speak to each other on the pitch, its like they know he's out after this game and they don't wanna do even the minimum to help him.

      Upamecano gets a second yellow on such an avoidable challenge in the box you wonder if he didn't do it on purpose. Resulted in a penalty and the 3rd for Bochum.

      Tief im Westen, wo die Sonne verstaubt
      Ist es besser, viel besser, als man glaubt
      Tief im Westen, tief im Westen

      Du bist das Himmelbett für Tauben
      Und ständig auf Koks
      Hast im Schrebergarten deine Laube
      Machst mit dem Doppelpass
      (Jeden Gegner nass)
      Du und dein VfL
      Bochum, ich komm aus dir
      Bochum, ich häng an dir
      Oh, Glück auf, oh, Glück auf
      Oh, Glück auf, Bochum

      I assume you're happy  :D ;D

      It is very funny watching Bayern's season implode. Harry lucky charm Kane is apparently tearing it up but likely to be in receipt of zero trophies again.

      Tuchel leaving at the end of the season. Only surprise is that he is lasting that long.
