Episode 7: The 4th Heynckes Era begins

First up, the crew discusses Heynckes’ return and the team’s potential before they get in to the Freiburg match. How did the 2013 iteration of Bayern Munich fare four years later? David Alaba and Kingsley Coman seem to be coming around nicely, but is a match where Christian Streich’s Freiburg never really looked to go forward a good test?

Moving on, the trio chat about the Celtic match and the merits of Sebastian Rudy over Javi Martinez at defensive midfield. FCB’s high team press is mentioned with a special shout out to Arjen Robben as the Dutchman provided a remarkable defensive performance.

Susie questions the lack of control at the second half, and whether it was Arturo Vidal’s doing, but Christopher and Maurice are thinking the team is just looking ahead. (It gets a little tasty here, folks.)

They all get on board the Joshua Kimmich hype train– wondering if he might eclipse legend Philipp Lahm– before they question Brendan Rodgers’ decision to start without Celtic’s most potent offensive player, Moussa Dembele.

Words on Sven Ulreich (and two clean sheets!) close out the podcast as Bayern faces brutal matches in the next coming weeks: RB Leipzig in Pokal and the league, followed by a top-of-the-table Dortmund match.

Thank you, as always, for listening! We’ll be back with you after the Leipzig Pokal encounter. Mia san mia.
