    Everything! Relating to football.

    Considering his team an recent rise to notoriety, I don't expect many witnesses to his performances, though.

    How did he look in his cap for Germany?

    Seen him once early on in the season when they played Shalke and he stood out a lot. I was away on holiday when I watched the game so I remembered his shirt number and looked it up when I got home :lol: Can't even remember a lot about him now or why he stood out.

    There's a nice blend of German attackers breaking through at the moment - two intelligent playmakers in Holtby and Gotze, two direct attackers in Schurrle and Reus, all with their own distinct qualities but playing in similar positions. Definite muppet target in the next couple of years.

    Well, Reus has improved significantly in the last year - his close control is great, he has some pace to burn and is two-footed. He's a light-weight though and can easily be budged off the ball, however, his fine balance allows him to glide past his opponents.




    Only played a few minutes v Turkey but here's a video of him:

    Thank you for the info, sir! That's some highlight reel!

    He's quick as lightning, and he looks like he can score all types of goals with his feet. That blast at 2:50 is amazing, and the last one flew past no less a keeper than Manuel Neuer.

    That tackle he tried in the Germany match was hilarious, but he ran about as fast as I've seen a footballer run to catch the guy, he went to tackle and almost flew into the air!

    I'd say he looks well suited to play as a wide striker/inverted winger.

    Assuming he is similar to Marin then reading the above posts. He is really good on FM though, i can say that!

    We've got Joshua King on loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach, so naturally we're front-runners to sign Marco Reus.

    he always seems to make something happen. been watching the bundesliga highlights for some time now and he always seems to make it to the highlights reel with a lot of involvement in the Gladbach attacks

    Reus is a great young player.........but Gotze is the real deal 100%.

    I didn't mean to imply otherwise, I quite like Gotze as a play and would welcome him here in a second.

    But I don't have much hope of any young German star coming to United because it's never happened as far as I know, they don't leave Germany very often anyway.

    We probably won't get either.

    First goal at 2:15, second at 3:25...and what a strike it was.

    Marco Reus heiß begehrt: Lucien Favre bestätigt Arsenal-Interesse - Sport Fussball Bundesliga

    It has to be translated:

    "Interesting player"

    Is it me or does this Borrusia coach talk like Wenger?

    I hope for your sake that your judgment is based on real matches and not youtube compilations :lol:
    Otherwise I can show you that Quaresma is a legend of football

    And Arsenal could have Marco Reus, which will leave us and Bayern to fight for Götze.

    Only one winner there then, when was the last time we signed a highly rated German?

    I don't see us having much chance of signing Gotze, i think we stand a far better chance of competing against Arsenal for the signing of Reus. Although i would love to see us sign Gotze, i just can't see it happening.

    So they are not looking to sign Götze or are they just waiting to get closer to 2014, when his contract runs down and he will available relatively cheaply than he will be next summer?

    A newbie sent me a PM saying that Reus has said he wants to go to Bayern. They sure have a lot of admirers in the German football ranks.

    This page seems to suggest he plays as a right winger in a 442.

    Goal.com

    I would think his future was as a wide striker in a 433 or an attacking midfielder in a 4231, anywhere across the row of 3.

    I've watched him against Leverkusen and Hannover in the past month and both times he played down the middle, it seems like that's now becoming his position but he can obviously play out wide (he looked best against Leverkusen when he moved wide left). I think he moved there because the other strikers weren't impressing and they had a good replacement out wide in Hermann, so it doesn't say anything about where he's best used. Has the skillset of a wide forward IMO. He's not a midfielder though he's clearly a forward.

    BILD speculated today that Götze will play this season and the season after in the Bundesliga and then move abroad. BILD, mind, do have some good sources. Götze's contract runs out in 2014 and Dortmund will have a chance to cash in on him in 2013.

    In that case I hope Madrid sign Hazard and leave Götze alone so he can move to England. But then it also depends on if Götze wants to move to Britain.

    Even if he moves to England it will be for City or Arsenal, so it wouldn't really work in our favour. I hope neither of them goes to England.

    Probably true on the City part. I don't see us signing any highly rated German's anytime soon.

    As per usual in football. There's no guarantee of Rooney not moving to Norwich City for £5.5m in January, yet you can tell that there's no chance of that happening.

    I wonder if it would be possible to get some statistics on how many of each country's international players choose to play abroad. Perhaps it's because United has never had a Germany International [as far as I know] that it seems that Germans are especially likely to choose to stay in Germany.

    Of course money comes into play, especially for Brazil and Argentina, it doesn't really mean that Brazilians are more comfortable leaving their country. But I wouldn't be surprised if, versus most other nations, German national team members are twice as likely to play for a club in Germany as well.

    You'd think with so many of them being multilingual that it would make them good candidates for moving abroad.

    Yes Rooney going to Norwich and Reus moving to us is great comparison and both are probably same on the likelihood of happening. Actually, I don't know why I bothered to come into an argument with you in the transfer forum, you've a tendency to be an idiot here.
