9 years in a row and they’ll walk it next season too.

Bundesliga needs to sort itself out.

Think all big leagues have similar problem like Bundesliga,it's quite normal in these days.

Juve,PSG and Barca/Real are quite dominant and they have no real competition in their leagues.Even EPL started to have same champions,since Pep and Klopp came there.

Bundesliga is the worst though. Inter have just ended Juve’s reign, PSG are more focused on the CL and Barca/Real take turns. Both Dortmund and Leipzig will be weaker next season while Bayern stay strong.

Bayern dropped a ****load of points this season that Leipzig failed to take advantage of as well. Despite the power Bayern have you would still get a Werder or a Stuttgart winning now and again in the 2000's. Can't see anyone coming close to Bayern anytime soon.

Juve really had average season and they're weaker team than Bayern nowdays.Can't say that other Italians clubs became so good over night,while they were quite bad in CL as well.One of those seasons really.

Barca and Real also are far from their best and still can win La Liga at the end.

I mean Dortmund will never be able to compete,while they must sell best players every season to Bayern or some other big teams and they need some proper manager like Klopp to win Bundesliga.RB also lacks quality in some positions,but they just dropped off in title race in last couple of games.Maybe they can get closer to Bayern in next few seasons if they find proper manager and Bayern gets weaker.

Tbh this season was a massive bottlejob by Nagelsmann and Leipzig. Bayern were there for the taking having on pitch and off pitch problems, Red Bull dropped so many points against smaller teams. Imo their core mistake was letting go Werner - a guy who scored 28 goals for them in the Bundesliga in 19/20 - and replacing him with a dud like Sörloth who managed a meagre 6 goals this season. A rather proven, prolific BL striker would've gotten them over the line; they should've just signed Kevin Volland or Andrej Kramaric who are both always good to get you around 15 goals a season. That's on Nagelsmann and their DoF Krösche, don't know what they were thinking. Also, Nagelsmann can be a bit of a tinkerer, too, regarding line-ups and tactics.

Rather disappointed with Nagelsmann leaving Leipzig without a substantial success after 2 seasons already. Woud've far more appreciated him staying to win something pre-Bayern job and really showing what he's made off - especially considering his young age, high stock and the high speed of the manager-go-around nowadays. But it seems he's a pretty ambitious, driven guy; probably thinks he can get his Bayern era done before hitting 40 to go on coaching abroad at a fairly young age after that.

Dortmund bottled it when Bayern had Kovac as well. Think the next chance will be 23/24 when probably Muller and Lewandowski leave. By then you’d imagine Sancho and Haaland will have left so their replacements will have had a season or two to bed in.

Yeah they definitely missed a huge opportunity for a title this season. It's clear Nagelsmann is a very talented coach and I understand he's from Bavaria so not very likely he'd turn that down but it's still a gamble from his POV considering he's not won anything at this point. If he doesn't hit the ground running, particularly in Europe, Bayern have never been the type to hide away from making a change regardless of the talent of the coach.
