its been a 3 days since the transfer,and i still can't believe what Bayern did.
It’s a known fact that there aren’t much better, well-rounded attacking midfielders /also comfortably slotted at the flanks/ around the game who can create and score as many as James – at least when on form.
Loan fee of €5 million and €35.2 million to make it permanent ? Man,Swansea are demanding £50m for Gylfi Sigurdsson #-o

Imagine if we had kept Götze and he finally started to perform like he should this summer. That's James.

So many people seem to be overrating James, which is disrespectful to our current players. In my opinion, if we play with two wingers I don't even see James in the starting XI. I rate our current midfield much better than Real's last season, where James was benched.

He's great as a marketing tool but sportingly, which is what matters most, we need to keep our feet on the ground and not expect all that much from him.

Agree about the overrating James.

Disagree about our midfield much better than Real Madrid one.

Kroos, Casemiro, Modric just outplay Alonso, Vidal and Thiago.

You're not expecting Ancelotti's "biggest wish" in the starting 11?
Alright. Given the consensus that Ancelotti seems to pick players by his liking and not performance only, this is weird.

Let's just wait and see, alright? We already know you're not really a fan of him but it's also true we shouldn't be so euphoric before he even played a single game for us.

James' talent is undeniable. There's a reason why nearly all Madrid fans are sad of him leaving.

I don't think James being benched has anything to do with whether theirs or our midfield is better. Madrid under Zidane don't play with a 10, so James would have had to displace one of Ronaldo, Bale, or Isco. Zidane obviously favored Isco when Bale was injured, which also calls for concern

I don't think people's hype about James has any disrespect towards the other players in the squad. It's no secret he is a top player so people will get excited. But I do agree that I don't really much care about the social media hype he brings I'm more focused on his influence on the pitch...

It's kinda hard to not get outplayed when your playing with ten men in both legs.....

Haha I agree. No way James stays on the bench except to have a break.

We saw what happen with Alonso.

They didn't have to wait Bayern to be at 10 to dominate the midfield. They were ******* solid when we were butter.

I don't think it is an outrageous statement that Real Madrid had a better midfield than us last season.

Alonso, Thiago, Vidal, Renato and Kimmich just doesn't stand it against Modric, Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Isco (and James).
This year might be different though.

If you compare us to Real, they really only have Ronaldo that puts them ahead of us + 2 on form full backs. I hope Alaba and Kimmich shine this year.

Again I never compared last year's midfield to theirs. I compared our current midfield to Real Madrid's midfield last year (when James was mostly benched). In my opinion he will have more competition this season at Bayern than he had last season at Real Madrid, quality wise. Now if he's patting Carlo's back that's a whole different story.

My bad, read to fast.

Still I rate Real Madrid midfield ahead of Bayern.

For me only Vidal instead of Casemiro would have sense for Real Madrid while in the other way I would tak Modric and Kroos instead of Thiago and Tolisso every day.
