    German Bundesliga 2013/2014



    Starts: 08/09/2013
    Ends: 05/10/2014

    Promoted teams: Hertha BSC, Eintracht Braunschweig

    Notable managerial changes:

    Guardiola replaces Heynckes.

    Notable Transfers:

    Mario Götze - Dortmund to Bayern
    Thiago Alcantara - Barcelona to Bayern

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan - Shakhtar to Dortmund
    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - Saint-Etienne to Dortmund

    Giulio Donati - Internazionale Milano to Bayer Leverkusen
    Son Heung-Min - Hamburger to Bayer Leverkusen

    Ádám Szalai - Mainz 04 to Schalke 04

    Luca Caldirola - Internazionale Milano to Werder Bremen



    Notable Transfers out:

    Andre Schurrle - Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea FC


    So now that Bayern have bought Thiago what will their team look like? I know Guardiola plays many different formations and is known to play midfielders as CBs and even full-backs as CBs.

    For my liking this is what I think we could see....


    ---------------------------------------Neuer------------------------------------



    ----Lahm------------------Martínez--------------Dante--------------Alaba-------





    --------------------Thiago-----------Schweinsteiger ----------Kroos----------------




    -------------------------Müller------------Gotze----------Ribéry--------------------



    On to Dortmund........Quietly they have had a very good summer replacing Gotze with two quality signings in Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang. Kept Lewandowski (There is still time so he could go but I don't think Dortmund sells to Bayern and thats what he wants) who although probably wants to be elsewhere I don't think will disturb the peace too much and get along with the program.

    My hope is that both head-to-head matter in the league this year, should be lively games. Forza Dortmund!!

    And why exactly is Götze a center forward?
    It will be called Internazionale, because we are brothers of the world.

    False 9 is my thinking. Guardiola really doesn't use main strikers.

    The only capable of being the false number 9 is Muller imo. No way in hell can Goetze play there.

    if Martinez won't play in the middle, that's just too big of a mistake

    Lewa is apparently going to Bayern next year. But maybe Pep will stop the transfers

    Playing Martinez anywhere but CM/DM would be foolish imo. And IIRC that's one of the reason he was not keen to move ot Barca as Pep wanted to play him as CB. He is the best DM in the world and Martinez-Schweinsteiger is the best double pivot in the world. Defensively on the whole different level to any duo and one of them plays box to box role.

    Breaking that partnership would be foolish move and something I think will happen this season.

    Playing Gotze as false 9 is a waste of his abilities. Fucling Bayern have way too many luxuries now. I wonder where Kroos will fit. For me, he is still their best midfielder and has fantastic technique and footballing ability.

    Not playing him regularly will create so much unrest in the dressing room and among the fans. He is better than Thiago at least for now and before he was off injured he was one of their best players.

    Bayern loving playing Germans, they want to have German core, so dropping him would be one of the biggest mistake IMO. Kroos, Martinez, Schweinsteiger trio should play most of the games as they proved how good they are already.

    Yup, and ahead of them Gotze, Ribery and a striker like Mandzukic will surely play too. Again their academy and German player Muller may get benched, while Robben would also see fewer minutes.

    Pep has a big task ahead, and we know he isn't the best at dealing with egos. Every which way, they will be entertaining this season.

    Benching Muller is a big NO too. I think Muller will step up a level next year with Pep. He is a very intelligent player and someone whom Pep would love to play all the time.

    Pep had a strong balanced side with depth BEFORE he signed Gotze. Thiago is just overindulgence. Bayern should have told Pep to shut up and be happy with the $37M attacking mid we just brought in. However, I get the impression Pep never really wanted Gotze, he wanted Neymar. So he publicly requests Thiago forcing the managements hands, now he has completely unbalanced the squad at his own request. Classic Pep transfer.

    When this blows up in his face and I am starting to believe it will, he will not have the love of the Spanish supporters to fall back on. Not to mention he is already working with a team who won everything so there is absolutely nothing to improve on. This is a failure waiting to happen.

    Btw. Sucks to be Shaqiri!

    Very predictable formation for Bayern next year

    Neuer
    Boateng Martínez Dante
    Schweinsteiger
    Lahm - - - - - - - - - Kroos
    Götze
    Robben - Müller - Ribéry

    With Thiago and Luiz Gustavo as super-subs

    You think Thiago has left Barcelona to be a super sub? That's an awful lot of money for a super sub.

    It is, but they paid much more for Götze, and Kroos should be in the starting lineup, so I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't in the starting XI.

    He'll be more of a wingback in that position, rather than a RCM.

    It's a position that he can fulfill quite well tbh.

    Apparently Guardiola said that Mandžukić has all the attributes of a defender ...
