Bayern Munich - This season
Just spent a couple of hours watching there game tonight under there new manager and thought I would throw some thoughts out there:
Forwards - Lewandowski got GWG and still only had an average PB, he rarly drops deep and apart from being a goal threat sees little of the ball so will struggle unless he scores hat tricks. Muller may be the better option as he was involved in far more play.
Midfield - Coman looked good until getting injured and Alcantara had plenty of the ball, however with a surplus of midfield players on the bench it will be hard to predict who will get the 90 minutes required to post consistently good PB scores.
Defence - Kimmich took plenty of set pieces and looked on track for a very high PB after the 1st half but missed Coman in the 2nd half with the way they set up it looks like he will more of the ball than the rest of there defence and I expect consistently high scores from him this year especially if he can add a couple of goals. I think he could go to £4. Alaba did not seem to see as much of the ball playing out from the back as last year and I wonder if that was intentional and signalled a minor change from the new coach.
Overall I think the only player who will consistently challenge for PB is Kimmich and it may be worth looking at cheaper options at other Bundesliga clubs though I do think Muller may be there or thereabouts.
Thiago is always a couple of steps from an injury!
Tolliso will come into the reckoning soon enough I would imagine , £2.00 seems like a bargain to me, he only came back to Bayern on the 12th August from World Cup duty.
Undoubtedly Bayern will win the league this year it's just a case by how much. To me the value in the midfield in Bayern Munich is with Leon Goretzka at just over £2. He was on the bench on Friday as he was away with Germany in the world cup. He is 23 years old box to box, strong powerful and gets goals . He was Schalkes best player last season, then Bayern signed him on a free. Host of premier league clubs wanted to sign him before he went to Bayern. It's just my opinion but this guy could do big things at Bayern for years to come.
@Gary2907 - There's no doubting his ability - He just needs minutes on the pitch to show what he can do.
So many great option in Bayern midfield - just need a bit of time to see who will get the minutes - whoever plays there should rack up the PB
@Indexical - I can't see Alcantara missing out... But i can see Ribery and Robben being gradually phased out this season.
Big impact losing Coman on Friday - hopefully will see him return sooner rather than later.
Bayern have some great youth prospects to come through too - and if results go their way, which they probably will - then then should see some game time too.
Thiago and his injury’s
He is a very risky option imo.
