Rani Khedira deserves a chance with the NT... along with his tm mate Max

Germany have the perfect forward players in Sane, Reus, Gnabry and Brandt to play counter attacking football. If only Löw stops his obsession with possession based soccer! Goretzka would flourish in a counter based team (like he did during the Confederations Cup last year) Kroos plays in a counter attacking team - Real Madrid (however I do believe that Kroos has been pathetic lately and must be dropped from the National Team!). Havertz too plays in a mostly counter attacking side - Leverkusen.

Germany desperately needs a new coach who can do the basic right. Forget about playing out from the back and the ultra high line. Just stay compact and have players who can punish opponents on the break!

Berlin’s Arne Maier can be the answer to the defensive midfielder issue.

IMO 4141 and 343 are formations that would work best for the German NT

He’s the new Podolski. In the Squad for “togetherness”, “ energy”, “motivation”, “spirit” and “personality” #-o

If Low insists on trying out his false-9 bullshit in the league B, I hope Jovic can give him some good slaps.

Realized the U-21 team finished the year unbeaten. DFB should consider Kuntz although quite risky.
There is no right or wrong,
only yes and no. The rest are just bullshit.

What’s the risk though?

Germany in the year 2018

Germany vs Spain (Friendly) 1-1 D
Germany vs Brazil (Friendly) 0-1 L
Germany vs Austria (Friendly) 1-2 L
Germany vs Saudi Arabia (Friendly) 2-1 W
Germany vs Mexico (World Cup ) 0-1 L
Germany vs Sweden (World Cup) 2-1 W
Germany vs South Korea (World Cup) 0-2 L
Germany vs France (Nations League) 0-0 D
Germany vs Peru (Friendly) 2-1 W
Germany vs The Netherlands (Nations League) 0-3 L
Germany vs France (Nations League) 1-2 L
Germany vs Russia (Friendly) 3-0 W
Germany vs The Netherlands (Nations League) 2-2 D

Played: 13
Won: 4
Lost: 6
Drawn : 3
Goals for: 14
Goals against: 17
Only 1 of 7 competitive matches won.

In terms of results, this has been the worst year for the German NT. Even the “dark age” of 2000 was better [Played 12 Won: 5 Lost: 4 Draw: 3]

Surely Germany can’t do any worse than how they are doing with Löw at the helm?

https://mobile.twitter.com/honigstein/s ... 3525436416
^If Poland get a result tomorrow Germany would lose the seeded spot for the Euro qualifying. Then Germany will officially join the ranks of Iceland, Ukraine, Wales and Austria. Is there anyway Germany could do worse?

Kuntz has been going from strength to strength since last years Euro U21 win. Tactically outclassed a much more talented opponent in Spain and had a fantastic qualifying. The last two games some of his First choice U21s were missing either through injury (Maier) or NT duty (Havertz) but Germany still won both games.

The U21s outplayed the Dutch and won 3-0 and today beat Italy in Italy and came back from 1-0 down.

Mark my words. Germany’s rut won’t end unless Löw is sacked. He’s a dinosaur now and a new mind is needed as the Bundestrainer.

I think Germany won’t play until March. In the meantime fire Löw and show the seniors the door. All selection should be on merit alone. No more selection based on “loyalty” and “trust”

Kuntz is not the most attractive option right now but if he can just focus on the basics and get that right, I believe he can get Germany back on track.

That’s fitting for a relegated team. To downgrade from Mercedes to Volkswagen. This is just the start. The DFB look determined to fučk up another major tournament (2020) before realizing Löw is an inept fool who needs to be shown the door!

If Löw is not sacked then I ain’t gonna bother with the German NT and international soccer. His story is so much like Wenger it’s unbelievable. Both created great legacies of consistency and excellence only to later tarnish them due to arrogance.

I think it was a good thing we conceded those two goals after he subbed Sané and Gnabry off. Maybe he's now understood once and for all that Müller's time in the NT is over.
