His substitutions seemed to make sense as well. Robben for Thiago seemed quite logical since Thiago wasn't visually involved in the last 10 minutes he played and Robben would have given us a psychological boost after the first not given penalty. Hindsight is great but it was not like everyone expected that Robben would get injured again because he wouldn't have been on the bench then. Schweini for Muller worked out quite well (sort of). Muller wasn't really involved after that first not given penalty and Basti did create good chances, who would've thought Langerak would make a monster save like that. And then Gotze for Robben was also not the strangest decision since Gotze had shined as a sub on the biggest stage of them all. It's just one of those nights where everything goes wrong.

Polish Dortmund fanclub is going to Berlin to watch the game in the fanzone.

Grimnir wrote:You would think by now people would realise the kind of player Müller is. How many matches people complain they don't see him, he's off the mark, not involved blah blah blah and then he turns up out of nowhere and scores a goal. Have people forgotten so fast Müller sprinting down the pitch at Weidenfeller in extra time and scoring a brilliant break away goal? He's not a player you sub off in a big match, especially with a marginal scoreline and the chance of going to penalties where he's our best penalty taker. Alonso subbed off would have worked well not Müller. We did not need Alonso.

Guardiola needs to devise an ingenious plan to stop Barca's fantastic forwards in the two semi-final games.
How he will do this?
I hope Bayern players will fight bravely and not allowed to be humiliated again.
