He wasn't impressing in the WC. Argentina was one of the favourites and did well in their group, but Messi didn't score or made a difference in the matches that mattered. I can't recall the match against Mexico, but he was completely invisible against Germany. He profitates much from his Barca colleagues, this is an well-practised unity with many automatism. Concerning his technique he certainly is the best player in the world, but I don't see him as a leader, a playmaker that can be the crucial factor in a hard match. He can't animate others.Dream-Xtractor wrote:He was a bit unlucky in the last WC despite not scoring any goals - he was the most creative player and hit the woodwork several times.
Three Müllers absence is imo the reason why we lost to Spain last year.I was certain Ribery would be at either Madrid or Barca by now but he seems settled in Germany. Like I said before, he's looking back to his best. You have arguably two of the best wingers in Europe in Ribery and Robben.
You seem to know Bayern well, do you watch a lot of international football? I'd like to, but I don't have the time. I mostly only follow Bayern and from time to time the other German clubs in the CL and lately Lazio Roma due to Miro Klose.Kroos is a very accomplished player, I like him a lot. One aspect he could maybe improve on is his goalscoring but then again if you have Gomez and Ribery banging them in for you it doesn't matter.
I think there's a chance of getting him when Arsenal keeps on offering enough money. Sooner or later he'll leave Dortmund. But I guess you need a creative player before that's gonna happen. Seeing you making a bid of 40 milllions for Götze, why weren't you able to keep Fabregas if he was so important? Not that Barca needed him so badly.He's exactly what we need though after the departure of Fabregas and Nasri - we're missing a creative figure in the middle of the park.
I'd be too But trying to tempt away the best players of our current competitors is a very common tactic of Bayern. So common in fact that the other German clubs don't care anymore. Doesn't keep us from carrying on though, it has become too much of a routine to stop it. I honestly don't think we'll buy him. We prefer Reus from Gladbach anyway, he's almost as good as Götze yet more unknown and thus cheaper.I would be shocked if you managed to get him because you really don't need him!
Maybe Arsenal should try to get Reus
Great, it's always a pleasure to beat those billionaire's clubs. Maybe next year we'll strike against PSG with Beckham ... can't believe they want to have him. For one second I thought they wanted to be a serious club, but then they wouldn't want to have a 36 year old media star.They'll be back.
Don't get me wrong, I'd be glad if he could help you and get better and more experienced himself. The next EC is waitingHe's brought a lot of organization to our defence and I've never seen us look so composed at the back as we've looked this season.
Yeah I heard that ticket prices are extremely high in England, yet the matches are often sold out. Just checked; you could get an annual season-ticket for Bayern for 160 dollar. That's not too much, but I rarely go to matches as I live three hours away from Munich, and I don't have a car. I've been to several matches over the years though. This July Bayern played a friendly game in Jena where I live and I managed to get tickets, that was cool But I'd love to go to matches regularly one day.The prices for tickets now though are utterly insane so maybe it was a good thing I had to move or else I would have been shelling out way too much every season.
