BREAKING: TUCHEL IS NEW BAYERN BOSS
It's not April 1st yet, so please do not ignore. FC Hollywood is their alternate name, is what someone told me concerning Bayern Munich some minutes before I wrote this, due to these kind of changes.
Hi, some of you will be hearing this for the first time in Hive. It is what it is, Julian Nagelsmann has been sacked and mercurial Thomas Tuchel replaces him with immediate effect. We can safely say that with the sack and appointment happening all in one night(this night), it strongly suggests that discussions with Tuchel had been on for a while now and once he agreed, there wasn’t any need waiting, especially with an international break like this offering him some time to look around and attempt to settle in.
Some will say Pep's nightmare is about to confront him again, as Manchester City will face Bayern Munich in the upcoming quarter finals of the Champions league. I can imagine Bayern had that in mind too. But a lot many others are obviously stunned at the decision and the timing too. One said concerning Nagelsmann,and I quote him verbatim–
"This is typical sh*t
At least they should have let him finish the season
He's still in the UCL and chasing the league title
The coach has done more than enough for the team"
It's true a lot of people see this as a harsh decision on Nagelsmann. For example another said– "Bizarre decision, he managed to beat Barca n PSG home n away, he is just one point behind in a league we all know Bayern gonna win". This season for Bayern has been 37 games,112 goals and only 3 defeats. Doesn't look awful isn't it?
Summarily, those upset with this decision aren't doubting the quality of Tuchel, but the timing of the sack, they don't want anything to weaken or distract their team at this crucial phase of the season– call it, the business end of the season.
It's quite difficult to say, at the time of writing, the exact reason for this shocking decision. I remember again,FC Hollywood. This indeed looks like a movie scene. People will wake up(in much of Europe, at least) to suddenly meet a change in Bayern!
As for the reasons, some say it's because Nagelsmann doesn't play the Bayern way, blowing away teams like the previous coach Flick. Then I begin to wonder if Tuchel will play in the said "Bayern way". Another says, he was a good coach but it seems he was cold with his players and difficulties behind the scenes.
Well, what is clear is that this season in the Bundesliga Bayern is playing it's worst football in a decade, they have uncharacteristically struggled with teams like Koln and Mainz. I would add that they have had serious injury worries if I may act as Nagelsmann's advocate.🙂 Well between Sporting Director,Hasan Salihamidzic, and CEO
Oliver Kahn,both former well-decorated players, is where the answers lie.
As for Thomas Tuchel, this appointment ordinarily is a sweet addition to his CV. It says a lot that big clubs want your services. He's been French Champion twice with PSG, a Champions league winner with Chelsea, were he also won the FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA SuperCup. He was named World's best club coach of the 2000/2021 season when he coached Chelsea. That's apart from other honours in Germany and France.
As for this his new appointment, it is known that Tuchel is very adaptable and as such is not likely to suffer from "teething problems" a sudden change of coach can bring on a high flying team.
I agree with the essence of this take–
"He[Tuchel] is no longer managing primadonnas like the PSG clowns or the Chelsea players who will throw you under the bus at the slightest hint of inconvenience. At least he won the CL league with them."
The quality of players in Bayern are as good as it gets and this is a huge advantage for Tuchel, a coach who knows his onions. You can be sure, he will make his defence a difficult one to penetrate for a start.
Meanwhile Mr. Julian Nagelsmann first heard of it via social media. Reports say Bayern had to act this fast because Tottenham and even Madrid were eyeing Tuchel.
As a Madrid fan am pained to see him go to Bayern. We all know how top top Tuchel is and with Ancelottis doubt about coaching Madrid next season i wanted it to be Tuchel who will take over.
As for Nagelsman, I also heard similar issues. I hear he has a lot of problems with the dressing room and bla bla but I still think the sack was not needed. It gives me a feeling of how Chelsea sacked Tuchel out of the blue.
Let’s see if it’s the right decision after all in future.
Yeah understandable pain, but it's majorly the fans talking. You see how Bayern fans are shocked?
My point is, the Madrid's heirarchy is not giving us the sack body language and it's they who are crucial in these matters. Madrid beats Chelsea now and it's almost certain Ancelloti completes his contract which terminates in 2024.
Conversely when you look at Tottenham, it's virtually a done deal that Conte is on his way out. Conte today doesn't care what happens, but Ancelloti today isn't that irritated with his job.
Well once again I remember that name, FC Hollywood. On Monday Tuchel resumes with players. Phew.
Thanks for commenting bro. You the one in HiveFPL?
Yep, even those of us who aren't bayern fans are shocked at this decision.
I think they are anticipating he will go to the brazil national team. If he's wise he will stay till the end of the season and then move when the season ends. I think the following season will be bad for him considering that we are loosing woefully to barca in Spain this season. Who knows, elclassico might be one of the reasons he receives the sack letter
The discord or fpl competition?
Am in the competition but am not in the discord. I hardly pay attention to it these days as I always forget to edit my team in time.
Hi, well bottomline is Ancelloti's situation is not as dire as Conte's. Even Conte will most likely be allowed to finish the season.
Yeah discord I was referring to.
Thanks for feedback.
Oh yep that’s true. I doubt conte will be allowed to complete the season with the way things are going.
Oh I was in it sometime ago.
And yes your doubts confirmed. He's gone. It was obvious how dire Conte's situation was.
Now Tottenham fans will feel the pain of this Bayern's employment of Tuchel. Indeed Tuchel was on the list of replacements for Conte.
Okay,on discord meaning you aren't the one I see commenting regularly now.
My regards to the boss @cryptoandcoffee , been quite a while; good to see you again as I was away recently.
