That’s how I felt about us for a long time... I've learned that players can step up and up their game though...


Also, who cares about the NT outside of WC and EC?

Good that our players weren’t called.

Although I would be lying if I claimed I don’t like Germany and I celebrated the 2014 win like a German, tbh I do not really care for the team much anymore and only like them because of the Bayern players. Another WC won’t top a second treble for me. It’s not a lifetime love affair with the NT as it is with Bayern. In fact, I could well see me following and supporting someone else next time around.

Similarly, I would obviously support Malta in a game against Germany. I would, however, never support anyone against Bayern. If someday my Maltese team were to play Bayern, I would support Bayern.

True, but mediocre Germany with the old German spirit under guidance of a clever coach can achieve more than that epic fail Germany of the nose digger 2 years ago. :D

I see a lot of potential in German midfield which is the strongest part along with 2 Bayern wingers though the last line is really weak.
Those top CBs and especially fullbacks are missing.

I would expect from Schalke, Stuttgart, Leipzig and BVB to produce future fullbacks, though. They are great factories of young players, but obviously not Germans in big numbers.

I don’t see any reason why I should be patriotic about a club. I started supporting Bayern about 10 years before I started following Maltese football and picked a team. Local football is a fun way to pass the time for me; I similarly plan to attend some games of the local team when/if I move and start following them. Bayern is more than that. My club is Bayern; the others are teams I like and want to win.

Hardly mediocre... I'd say pretty good. The top 6 could all qualify as Bayern players, Kehrer's a CL finalist and Süle is a Bayern player.

It's a team with some interesting potential except defensive line and lack of competition on #9 position. Imagine to include Müller and Boateng in this team.



Kroos, Gündogan, Havertz and only 2 more top winger prospects are missing for width. But I don't know whether Germany can do the same thing as France in 4-5 years time with some 10 top talents as it was the case between 2012 and 2017.
Now that's a major challenge for a football force such as Germany.

There is no reason for me to change' - Low explains why Bayern stars Muller and Boateng remain out of Germany squad [source]


"Both players had very good performances and they showed how important they are for this team," Low said of Muller and Boateng. "However, after the World Cup, we decided to go with other players. We want them to have space and time to develop."

"These young players have developed very well and we managed the changes very quickly," he said. "So there is no reason for me to change anything in this direction."

He added: "Should the situation be different, I would be the very first person to revise a decision. Currently, however, I don't see any reason. This path is good."

In other words: "I don't want that my authority is questioned by anyone." Nobody wants to be wrong, especially a guy like Löw who is 14 years the Bundestrainer.

True. I expect a resounding defeat against Spain. Löw has sucked the joy out of the international breaks for me.

Yeah that statement of his was so arrogant. He’s so full of himself it’s unbelievable. His Jupiter sized ego will ensure that Germany will lose again next year.

By sticking with this nose digging ego manic, the DFB/Germans deserve whatever comes to them!
