    Another game on the books and Germany are still alive in the World Cup. In some ways, a draw versus an in-form Spain team looks good on paper, but Hansi Flick needed so much more. Germany were far from convincing for most of the game, but some game-changing subs including the addition of Leroy Sane and Niclas Fullkrug in the second half allowed them to rescue a point. The performance leaves a lot to be desired. In this episode, Chuck and INNN talk about the following: Why did Hansi Flick field another strikerless lineup versus Spain? The problem with the role Thomas Muller was forced to play, illustrated by the players around him. No gegenpressing again — why? The strategic failure of the lineup. How and why the substitutes changed the game for Germany. The sheer impact of Fullkrug. Pointing out the terrible performances of the fullbacks, Thilo Kehrer and David Raum. Who should start against Costa Rica? What changes should Hansi make? Should Serge Gnabry or Thomas Muller start the next game? What kind of World Cup is Bayern Munich having? Answer: A really bad one. Is Jamal Musiala a little over-awed by the occasion? Serge Gnabry's awful form. Dayot Upamecano shining among the French contingent. Bad news for Matthijs de Ligt. An overall roundup of the injury situation and the silver lining if the Bayern players get knocked out early.

    Bayern Munich's luck has been pretty terrible at the World Cup. For Germany, is has not been much better, either. For both club and country, Citizen King's 1999 tune “Better Days” absolutely rings true (and yup, there may have been ample Thanksgiving beers consumed for me to remember that song). Bayern Munich and Germany could use some new juju to change up the way things have been going and we'll see if we can find some reason to get the optimism rolling. This is what we have on tap for this episode: A look at what we can expect from a young and hungry Spain team against an inefficient and unsure Germany squad.

Even with Hansi Flick and a whole host of Bayern Munich players on the roster, Germany have succumbed to Japan even after a fortuitous penalty gave them the lead in the first half.

    Well the FIFA World Cup is underway and a bunch of our Bayern Munich boys are set to kick off against Japan in the inaugural game of Group E. Germany have a solid team and a coach with the credentials to win it all, but that doesn't mean that everything looks good. Problems with the attack, lineup selection headaches, defensive issues, and potential injuries all threaten to derail this German campaign before it even begins. Can Hansi Flick beat the odds and come out on top? In this episode, we talk about the following: Why Germany might be in trouble this World Cup. Hansi Flick's lack of room to experiment. Why the “Bayern Munich formula” might not be enough. A take on Manuel Neuer's decision to wear the One Love armband in Qatar (be nice!).

    Germany barely got by Oman with a 1-0 victory in a match that likely will not inspire a lot of hope from fans. That said, former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick did not exactly go out of his way to detail many secrets about what his squad will really look like when they finally take the pitch against Japan during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

    With the Hinrunde over, the conversation finally shifts from Bayern Munich to the German National Team. World Cup 2022 is almost upon us, and Hansi Flick has announced the squad that he will be taking to Qatar. Despite including the likes of Karim Adeyemi, Kai Havertz, Thilo Kehrer, and other ... questionable names in the roster, Hansi Flick shocked the football community by snubbing the likes of Mats Hummels and Robin Gosens, and choosing only three midfielders for the roster. What kind of starting XI does that make? In this episode, INNN and Tom discuss: Why the fullback issue could sink Germany in the World Cup this year. Is Niklas Sule Germany's best option at right-back? How Hansi Flick's squad selection limits his options in midfield. Does Thomas Muller make the lineup in its current form? Who do you drop for him?

    Well that's it. Bayern Munich have closed out 2022 with a 2-0 win over Schalke, a scoreline that is a lot less dramatic than what you'd expect when looking at the lineups of the respective sides. Julian Nagelsmann will be pleased with his team, as they controlled proceedings and never looked in danger throughout the entire 90 minutes. Now he sends his players to the World Cup in great form and a solid win behind them. Here are our talking points from the game: Why the World Cup is the best chance for Jamal Musiala to get the recognition he deserves. How Serge Gnabry's good form is reflected in his overall game right now. Why the formation change introduced an imbalance in the system, which was only fixed when Joshua Kimmich moved back into midfield. Rant — why Thomas Muller still walks back into this lineup. Appreciating the great attacking brand of football Nagelsmann has the team playing. Once again criticizing Julian Nagelsmann for how he uses youngsters like Ryan Gravenberch and Mathys Tel.

    So the Champions league draw is over, which is the reason why we delayed recording this podcast until Monday so we could talk about who Bayern Munich will play in the Round of 16. It turned out to be Paris Saint-German, a team we've faced a number of times in the last few years. Boasting an attack with the likes of Leo Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, the Parisians have a formidable XI that can beat any team on their day. Meanwhile there is also the game against Werder Bremen on Tuesday, which is worth discussing because we need to talk about how Julian Nagelsmann will fare with the World Cup looming. So lots to talk about in a quick pod. In this episode, INNN and Schnitzel discuss: How we feel about drawing PSG yet again. How the World Cup could affect the tie — in terms of both fatigue and mentality. Is this the must-watch game of the Round of 16? Will former Bayern youngster Renato Sanches play in the tie?

    As the World Cup gets closer, Bayern Munich are starting to suffer from more and more minor injuries in every game. In the most recent win over Mainz, Matthijs de Ligt had to be subbed off as a precaution due to a presumed muscular issue. With complaints about rotation commonly levied at Julian Nagelsmann throughout the season, it seems like the upcoming Champions League game vs Inter Milan may end up becoming the moment of truth for the coach and his rotation policy.

    After four consecutive Bundesliga games without a win, Bayern Munich have responded in solid fashion with a 4-0 win over a struggling Bayer Leverkusen side. The entire front four managed to score as Julian Nagelsmann's system shone in its ability to create chances and suffocate the opposition with a high press. Even so, after all these poor performances, we have to be wary about declaring the crisis over after a single win. Here are our talking points from the game: A quick recap of how the game went down. How Sadio Mane playing on the left might be a move to optimize his role. Leroy Sane's excellent performance, overshadowed by the even better Jamal Musiala. Why a “quiet game” from Thomas Muller is a myth. A quick review of the midfield partnership (not much to say here) and Sabitzer's Kante-esque role. Does Matthijs de Ligt look a little ... large?

    Germany failed to impress against Hungary in what can be summed up as a disappointing showing overall, particularly from the attack. If Hansi Flick's side is to have any shot at going deep in the competition, they simply cannot look so toothless up front. Also, is Germany's poor form coinciding with Bayern Munich's poor showings of late mere happenstance, or are the two related? Coming to the situation at Bayern, does Julian Nagelsmann show a preference for more senior players? Is the 4-2-2-2 getting exposed, or does the drop-in form have nothing to do with Nagelsmann's preferred setup? Loads of questions out there, sure, and that is precisely what Schnitzel, Samrin, and Tom are here to dissect in this podcast. The following is a list of the major talking points: What Tom thinks the issue is with Germany at the moment Schnitzel's scathing views on Timo Werner starting upfront for Germany Is Jonas Hofmann at RB actually a bad idea? What the go-to attack should be for Germany in the World Cup The underperforming midfield Bayern Munich's poor form coinciding with Germany's... bad luck or something more?
