I bet you havent watched 2 full Chelsea games this season.

I've watched more, that's probably why I'm more secure to say my opinions against the grain. Spare us the emojis please, you don't look any smarter that way.

Those 7 emojis are way smarter than Rudiger's game, though.
Says it enough.

All they need to do now is rinse Neuer, or at least still have him in the squad with Ter Stegen starting. Good as new.


Name 7 offensive players to exclude Muller from the German National Team

1) Leroy Sané (LW)
2) Marco Reus (OM/LW, if not injured)
3) Kai Havertz (OM, still unexperienced with the GNT)
4) Serge Gnabry (RW)
5) Timo Werner (ST)

Draxler maybe. And Goretzka can play there.

I do understand Muller getting out of the NT, but getting rid of TWO central-backs when the alternatives are somewhat meh... totally shit decision.

Even Muller could be used as a super-sub. Come on, friggin Podolski dragged his ass on the NT for YEARS.

Why 7? You only need 3. Are you just stretching an arbitrary number to make Mueller look better?

Anyways: Brandt, Goretzka, Demirbay, Goetze

1.) No he’s not... He’s as shit as his last name...
2.) Maybe, bar Mustafi
3.) No, 2014 this was the best CD in the world
4.) Brandt?


1.) That's because you're not up to speed with football
2.) Yeah true. Only in desperation.
3.) It's been 5 years since then, yet you insist upon how some users live in the past
4.) Nothing player, still better than Mueller


1.) EPL wannabe soccer maybe Rüdiger is nowhere near what others, say Hummels against LFC, are able to deliver...
2.) Agreed
3.) I don’t - you said always... Not my fault when a native speaker doesn’t know the meaning of his own vocabulary
4.) Disagree... Not good enough for Müller to "make room" but give or take the same yes... Not like Müller is 35 though... One of the cases I would go for experience...

Here's another English lesson: Don't play dumb when you can clearly spot a hyperbole figure of speech. Makes your English look even worse. Hate to be that guy, but give me a break. Apologies if comes across as offensive.

Nah it doesn't, I deliberately wrote it in a provocative manner... Just that your reaction was to be expected and proves a point, my point to be exact: wanna know how many hyperboles I get offended for in, say a week?

Either way, I think Boateng-Hummels was still the best CB pairing like one and a half/ two years ago... That’s not THAT long... I still think they’re able to play better than basically every other German defender if coached properly...

But a new pairing needs to be groomed. There's still 1 year for Loew to "create" something new. You can't go into EURO 2020 with a new CB pairing having Boateng and Hummels playing the whole of 2019 to mid-2020.

If you play 4-2-3-1 you need 4 on the pitch and 3 on the bench (one of whom able to score with his head).

Gotze :lol:
Demirbay :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Better than Muller?

Brandt/Goretzka = Midfielders

Boateng was finished last WC and Muller has been awful for some time now so I can understand those two getting banished from the NT.

Hummels’ exclusion/banishment is baffling though. He’s been gaining form since the Winter break and at his best is still better than Ginter, Kehrer and Stark. Change just for the sake of it is silly.

Also as I had previously posted, Löw has be mentally disabled if he still continues to play Kimmich in midfield.

Forwards. With those two, you get 7 forwards better than Mueller even if you ignore Goetze and Demirbay.

According to @SPORT1, Hummels, Boateng and Müller didn't know about Löw decision until this morning when he met them in Munich. The players were surprised as they didn't expect this decision. Bayern bosses offered their support to the players, a support that was well received.

Major blow for the image of the footballers!
Not even 30-years old and "excluded" from the squad while both of them are CB defenders where supposedly are in their prime-matured age for a central defender. I'm assuming that Boa-Hummels are literally fuming with this decision.

Muller is on a downfall, I hope the club takes into consideration this decision of Germany NT and re-evaluates Muller's role with the team.
Hummels despite his lame WC performances and this season average form, he should continue in NT as crucial rotational CB (3rd in pecking order)
