Think its worth watching to see the performance of the individuals as a barometer going forward, there’s no way in heaven or hell we going to overturn a 3 goal defeceit on their ground. Not to mention all the players unavailable due to injuries and suspensions.
While Caballero hasn’t done any obvious mistake, he hasn’t been spectacular either. I think this match should be given to Kepa to show his abilities (if any). Agree, there’s no way we’ll overturn 3 goals. Even I won’t be surprised if Bayern beat us again. But hopefully we’ll save our honour by at least getting a draw. We are supposed to be fitter than them as Bundesliga had ended way before Premier League.
Hudson-Odoi has to be given opportunities too. It upset me when FL introduced Pedro, who was leaving, against Arsenal to substitute Pulisic instead of Hudson-Odoi. While Pedro was decent, he was not spectacular either. I think it was a mistake as we should give our future generation a chance.
Have to say that Bayern are way beyond our class. A decent effort from us though. Bayern attackers were unmarked in our defensive, I think Christensen & Zouma were poor. Hopefully we will get our recruitment right to continue to build our young team to challenge for trophies next season.
More or less expected I thought maybe a 3-1 loss, however the weakness in defence was once again highlighted and it’s going to take a small miracle for Frank to solve this huge problem before the season starts, I mean what can he really do? He can’t bring in a whole new defence and even if he could there’s no guarantee it will work. I’m surprised how Zouma, Rudiger, Christiansen have slipped back into mediocrity.
