Going for Tuchel when you had Nagelsmann already.... they deserve that downfall.

Only to please Neuer who was pissed with Nagelsmann for changing his GK coach.

Official excuses were always pathetic. They blamed him for going to ski after Leverkusen defeat instead of working on the team :lol: Oh. And that treble was at risk. Hadn't it been for chokers from Westphalia they would have finished the season with zero tituli for the first time since Klopp won double.

In a way Nagelsmann did damage to Bayern as he has always been an overachiever and his tactics hid Bayern squad weaknesses. Guy had made Werner look prolific and had turned a Bayern side that only had wing forwards and Choupo-Moting as their main forward into a goal machine. :lol:

Exactly. And at least with Nagelsmann, Bayern defence looked like they knew what they were doing, match after match. He kept tinkering, but it worked.

With Tuchel, he tinkers waaaay too much.

I can't imagine Conte in Germany, and especially Bayern, for so many reasons. Language barrier, style of football but most importantly character. He would clash with Bayern board pretty fast and the moment he criticised management in the media he would find himself fired.

He's a gobbo di merda that coached Inter. I can believe anything

Both Conte and Mancini are overrated, but at least Conte won us the league. Thanks for that one, just another stepping stone for this Inter to get higher in winning mentality

Mancini could only win it after Juve was dismantled

Tuchel... "To all the journalists gathered here I am announcing my departure from the club, it's a joint decision we have both come to and one we both think is the right decision"

That's BS and it remains BS no matter how many times it's repeated. That dismantled Juve would still be heads and shoulders above the current Juve. Look at their squad. The Milan of that era eats this Milan alive. The Roma of that era was much stronger than the current Roma. Relating Mancini's Scudetti to a weakened Juve only is ridiculous.

DFL Executive Committee will not continue partner process​

21 February 2024 - At its extraordinary meeting in Frankfurt today, the Executive Committee of the DFL e.V. unanimously resolved not to continue the process of entering into a strategic marketing partnership.

Hans-Joachim Watzke, speaker of the DFL e.V. Executive Committee, made the following statement:

“In light of recent developments, it appears that continuing the process successfully is something that is no longer possible. Although there was a significant majority in favour of the necessity of the strategic partnership from a business perspective, German professional football is in the midst of a crucial test of its strength, and this topic has given rise to considerable conflict. This was not limited to within the Ligaverband association between the clubs but also, in some cases, within the clubs themselves: between professional players, coaches, club officials, supervisory bodies, members assemblies and fan communities. That conflict is increasingly putting match operations, specific matches and thus the integrity of the competition at risk. The viability of a successful contract as regards to financing for the 36 clubs can therefore no longer be assured, given the circumstances.

Having considered all the relevant legal aspects, the Executive Committee has reached the conclusion that any further votes would do nothing to find a solution to the problem. The situation began with the vote on 11 December 2023, which resulted in a two-thirds majority, giving the Executive Committee a mandate to enter into an agreement. This vote is regarded as legally valid within the Executive Committee and by legal experts. Nonetheless, the fact that this vote has failed to gain broad acceptance due to the situation with Hannover 96 cannot be ignored, and it is essential for us that we do not ignore it, given the precious asset that we hold in our hands in the form of the 50+1 rule. The Executive Committee of the DFL is unanimously in favour of the 50+1 rule. However, any new vote aimed at establishing that acceptance by resolution would raise further legal questions relating to the assessment of the legally valid decision taken in December 2023, which was not questioned or contested by any club at the time. This could pose the risk of fresh legal questions or even disputes. Avoiding such an eventuality and returning to orderly match operations must be the DFL’s primary objective.

The Executive Committee has therefore unanimously come to the conclusion that, on the basis of the resolution dated 11 December 2023, it will exercise its discretion in not continuing the process and not bringing it to a conclusion in its current form. The Executive Committee of the DFL and the management will be inviting the clubs to talks in the next few weeks to discuss the implications of the process.”


So in the end fans won.
