The last time I felt this way was in season 2010/11; I used to check the fixtures to see if we had a chance to overtake some teams above us... hoping that those above us drop some pts

We're in the midst of a crisis that's mostly affecting the attack. I'm backing the team to break this writer's-block-equivalent and score at least once.

I think we had it coming... Our defense always had its flaws and it shows with bad offense... It’s not just the offense... We conceded 3... at home...

But yeah, let’s hope they will...

Yes we conceded 3 but we wouldn't have conceded 3 if our offense was working. We conceded the third only because we had so much resources trying to score. It wouldn't have been the same if we were winning 5-2 by that point. So I don't blame the defence anywhere as much as I blame the attack.

I would agree, definitely a problem with attack. Teams feel they can press us high because our counter attack has been poor, lacking pace when we don't play Gnabry and Coman being injured.

Given the circumstances I would go with this

4-3-1-2
Neuer
Boa Sule Hummels Kimmich
Thiago
Leon. Renato
James
Lewa. Gnabry

Yes to the above...and you'll also note that lack of pace hurts us on defense as it forces our fullbacks to cover more ground. Robben and Ribery cannot (or will not) track back as much as they once did and their overall positioning shows less variation. What this means is that our fullbacks have to do more work and cover more ground if they want to make overlapping runs than they 'normally' would. So our fullbacks get worn out faster. And then as our fullbacks are having to constantly press up the pitch higher, it causes our CBs to want to drift either forward or wider (or both) and get pulled out of position easier. That's not to absolve our defense of all responsibilities, but as I've said a hundred times...bad play on the wing impacts all of the players n the pitch

True... We had Demichelis and van Buyten and played a final, cause our wings were wc...

Hopefully


If 2 from Robbery/Müller start, Kovac should resign after the match

If all 3 Robbery and Müller start, then Kovac is joking with us and should leave as soon as the half time whistle blows
