    Bundesliga 18/19 will be back soon!

    I'm intrigued to see how Bayern cope with a brand new coach in Kovac, who seems to be putting a younger Bayern roster through. I'm intrigued to see what happens, as I have no idea what this team is going to look like. In previous seasons Bayern's lineup and formation was much easier to see who was going to be starting where. With some aging stars and some new (& potentially invigorated) young depth, who does Kovac want, and where? Is it enough to get Bayern another consecutive BuLi title?

    How will Schalke hold up in the Bundesliga now that they are back in the CL as well? I want to see Mckennie continue to shine for them and light it up on the European stage as well as in the BuLi. Where does Dortmund go from here? Is Pulisic still with BVB after this summer, and if so for how long? Does Marsch make the transition from leading RBNJ to being the assistant to Ralf Ragnick (former RBL sporting director) and then Nagelsmann in 2019?

    Also, how does the BuLi hold up in European competition? Do they fizzle out and look like shit much like last year in CL and Europa, or do they get some strength and depth vs. the squads from France, Spain, Italy, and England?

    I have almost no idea what to expect from a Lucien Favre-managed Dortmund, other than it will probably be more conservative. I hope he can keep Pulisic happy and developing.

    Watzke is managing expectations, saying the goal this season is CL qualification and that it will take two transfer windows before they can make a legit run at the title.

    I expect Schalke to finish above BVB this year.

    a more realistic poll would be, "who will finish 2nd place"

    That's not what the players at Shalke said.

    I wonder if Marsch took the assistant coach position, while the Technical Director is the head coach, because he doesn’t have his UEFA license yet??? The TD is the head honcho in name only to circumvent Marsch not having the credentials to lead the team. He’s supposedly very close to finishing his course, and when that happens, if RBL is responding Marsch, then the TD steps down to focus on being only the TD, and they don’t miss a beat with Marsch getting the new title nameplate, and RBL buys out next years Manager. If they’re not doing well, then the TD stays on and they ready for the transition next year.

    I don't think Marsch is going to replace Nagelsmann at all, even if the team does do well before Nagelsmann comes in. Up and coming Bundesliga/German coach vs. MLS/US coach? Nagelsmann was linked with going to Bayern last year. Marsch is going to learn under Nagelsmann if anything for a year or two, then probably take over as a head coach for RB Leipzig or RB Salzburg depending on how Nagelsmann feels/performs.
    It is interesting to see what role the TD and Marsch play this coming year. Also interesting to see what RBL do without Keita (and potentially Werner).
