Happy Kickback Thursday!

Tonight will see soccer juggernaut Bayern Munich battle Chivas Guadalajara in Red Bull Arena in New Jersey for a friendly as part of a mini United States tour for the German champions. While several of their key players are MIA after deep runs in Brazil (including World Cup glory for a few), there will undoubtedly be talent on the pitch this evening.

How do I know?

Well, I looked at the roster (which includes superstar in-the-making Julian Green) and because Bayern Munich’s coach is Pep Guardiola. Pep is a tactical maestro. Need proof? Recall that he was the architect of Barcelona’s recent historic run and the fact that he was two victories away in the Champions League from sweeping all titles during his freshman year (2013-2014) in Munich.

Since today is Thursday, it’s time for a throwback to the past. And today’s featured player is Pep Guardiola the player.

He had a pretty decent shot, wouldn’t you say?

By some strike of very good fortune/parents, I will be in Red Bull Arena cheering, “Go Bayern Munich!
