Someone's been in Christmas mood and has translated the Süddeutsche interview.

LMAO.

I tend to agree with your Kroos' arguments... but if I am not mistaken according to the fifa castrol rating... :???: yes it was kroos with the best stats

According to some stats, Robben has 100% pass accuracy(because he never passes, jk).
I always hated stats... stats can't show everything. Stats can't show disastrous mistakes in the most important games... Like Kroos for example, he'll make 50 passes back to the GK and play it safe, but he'll screw it all up with a wrong pass, and in the end of the game he'll have 95% pass accuracy + a defeat that can't be swallowed.
I won't ever use stats in my defense and will not accept others... Stats are BS in my eyes.

I found this particular quote very interesting.
But when you ask about scenes, there is one in the Brazil-match most people haven’t even noticed. I ran to the right to stop a Brazilian attack. Basti covered the goal. My ball went out and then Basti did the kick-off and the ball came to me. So Basti was the goal-keeper in that moment. That was … something else. A strange feeling.


I never noticed that. Does anybody know when did this happen in the match?

A goalkeeper mostly has a problem with mental fitness. With time you realise that your head gets tired. For me it started around the beginning of December. I started to count down the matches until Christmas.

that's why he was sleeping in mainz when soto scored!

I'm watching Chelsea - West Ham and it's a game that Chelsea would win practically playing without a GK. Courtois must be bored. I love the Hazard in it... he'd be definitely in my Christmas shop-list.
Adrian had a good game despite conceding 2 times.

“It is important for a keeper to have the chance to win it because it would open the door to others. I’d give it to Neuer”

Courtois wants Neuer to win so someday he'll have a shot and won't need to pass through a needle and raise the arguments against it like Neuer has now. :wink:

This was a really great year for Hamilton. Congrats to both. =D>

Neuer should just practice his smiles. I doubt he'll make any speech or need to shed any tears in awarding ceremonies in January. :evil:

I've finished the first part of the translation of the "Spielverlagerung.de"-article, you can find a pdf-file here

Spielverlagerung.de part 1 [source]


I haven't bothered with formatting stuff for now and it's far from a perfect translation (the German text is written in an awful grammar already and I'm having problems translating some of the technical terms). But it should be more comprehensible than the google translation (at least I hope so).

Maybe MUTU can publish in the blog. Thanks for all your effort man! I tried contacting a Neuer tumblr blog if he's willing to help, no reply yet.

I can proofread this if you want. :D

The bayern subreddit isn't really that active in terms of discussion in my experience and when I needed help translating a german phrase, I actually got the help I needed from the /r/german subreddit.
