Seems that Armas had the freedom to set up the team however he desired and consistently strayed away from the core principles.
The high press is how Bayern and Liverpool won the last two UCLs, not to mention how RB Leipzig got to be Bundesliga challengers. Also, and MOST IMPORTANTLY our best years were under Marsch playing the high press. The system aligns with RBs transfer policy to create players/pick out journeyman thatll fit.
It blows my mind that Armas dropped it (a system he knows well) and replaced it with seemingly nothing.
