We managed to reached the CL finals and lost there only by pure luck, despite being the best team on the field.
I do not expect much of a bad impact in German NT as it is a different story anyway.

But with German NT we have to break the (almost same) curse of "always second, never first" we have until Euro 1996.


I think that we have a better squad than 2010, at least our defence is much better now. There are still about 3 weeks left and I hope that they would get over it with the help of the German NT. Beating Portugal and Denmark should be no problem, but we should try to win Netherlands or at least draw them. If we get in the knockout stages, I expect us to get to at least the semifinals as the quaterfinalists would not be a great team. (Probably Poland or Russia)

Certainly. Ozil is also a better player and we have more depth. In the WC, for example, with Muller suspended we had to bring in Trochowski. We didn't really have a proper replacement for him or Podolski (the striker/winger hybrid player that Loew likes to use wide) but now we have Reus and Schuerle. Even if Ozil gets suspended we still have Goetze to cover his position. The big question mark now is on which side to play Lahm and who would take the other fullback position.

I think that most probably Lahm will play right and Schmelzer will play left. I bet Loew would have a hard time choosing his squad because of so many good players.

I think he means that their first team roles should be reviewed.

By his argument, Podolski shouldn't make it as his team was relegated.

I guess he forgot about him. Podolski can play the lone striker role too.

I agree that Boateng and Gomez shouldn't be starters, but I think Kroos will play (although he might not be the best choice).

Never disagreed more. I think Boateng and Gomez should play, but not Kroos. There just isn't a place for Kroos. He's a great guy, but he's not better than Khedira at DM, not better than Schweinsteiger at CM, and not better than Oezil at AMC. He would be one of the first to come in off the bench for one of these three though, depending how things are going.

Look at this team (NOT my favourite one)

-------------------------Neuer-------------------------
Boateng------Badstuber-----Hummels--------Lahm
---------------Kroos-----Schweinsteiger-------------
Müller----------------Özil--------------------Podolski
-----------------------Klose----------------------------

It shouldn't be unrealistic and every player except Özil has played for Bayern :)

I think we have better players in all positions. Unless he plays really bad in the upcoming friendlies, Klose should be our striker. Our CBs should be Badstuber and Hummels and at FB I prefer Lahm and Schmelzer, but it depends on which side Lahm will play.

As for Kroos, I agree with you. I think Khedira is necessary. What I meant was that I wouldn't be surprised if Loew goes for Kroos. That seems to be his plan.

Mine's:

-------------------------Neuer------------------------
Lahm------Hummels-----Badstuber-----Schmelzer
---------------Khedira-----Schweinsteiger----------
Müller----------------Özil-------------------Podolski
-----------------------Klose---------------------------

Someone has to do the job in midfield that Gustavo does, so Khedira, not Kroos.

I think the most debatable on whether he should start or not is Podolksi. Goetze, Reus and Schurrle could be a better choice.

The three behind the striker should be Ozil , Reus , Goetze/Mueller IMO and If Goetze hasn't been that long injured he surely should have started without a doubt
