Schlotterbeck bumping his performance today up to "terrible" with that goal.

Watching Sule and Schlotterbeck for Dortmund makes me think Germany's defence is going to suffer in the WC, their positioning is terrible and don't have pace to cover it up as well. Thankfully they binned Hummels, he's a liability.

Sule and Schlotterbeck are expected to start for Germany. Sounds like we might have a very short stay in Qatar.

BmG could have scored 7 already and it's just 55mins

I would enjoy this chaotic match much more, if Süle and Schlotterbeck weren't nominated for the world cup.
Embarrassing defending.

I don't think Süle was that bad today, he was playing FB until Schlotterbeck's substitution and thus out of the picture on Gladbach's counter attacks.
Schlotterbeck has been absolutely atrocious and at fault on every single goal and more. Hummels hasn't looked good either, but I'd cut him a bit more slack, since Bellingha and Can have deserted them all game.

Has there been a worse set of German defenders probably explains why Bayern does not have any German defender. It takes a lot to look worse than Upamecano

The Upamecano that has been at least solid to good this season?

The striker and right/left back positions have been a problem for many years now. In 2014 we at least had enough central defenders of international class to cover. And of course Lahm and 36 years old Klose. It's a bad joke nobody broke through since then.

Now you can definitely add the center back positions to the weaknesses of the national team. With Schlotterbeck and Süle Germany won't play any significant role in the knock-out matches. Especially considering the high line Flick prefers for his system.

Well it's definitely not unexpected, but what a rough stretch for Union...0:5 in Leverkusen, unable to beat Augsburg at home and now down 0:4 in Freiburg at half time.

It's a bit tragic to lead the table for so long only to enter the World Cup break in 5th place and some clearly negative momentum.

If they keep being unbeatable at home then they can still have a good season but the restart is going to be crucial for them.

Köln fell apart completely as well, Dortmund - to a lesser degree - too. The schedule has really wrecked some teams and they will probably recover a bit after the break. Having said that, they were extremely fortunate to be in such a good position to begin with, so aside from the Brazilian score lines they are just reverting to the mean.

Have you watched a Bayern game this season? Upamecano did a huge step forward and is having a great season so far.

Heard that a year ago or so from somebody who knew somebody and didn't believe it. Great that it's actually real :lol:

What's great about a 20-something person being too dumb to exist on his own?

Maybe for some reason not many people have watched it before.

It's great because it's funny. And if you are concerned whether football players are usually mature and independent characters capable of looking after themselves, I got bad news for you.

But man, Leverkusen is really living rent free in your head, isn't it? :lol:

I genuinely think it's a disturbing level of stupidity to drink a cooling pack. Though to be fair maybe Havertz wasn't aware of the fact that ice will melt at RT. Do they even write warning labels for that in the US?

I think 2,7 Million clicks kinda qualifies as "many people". At least surprising that the bit with Brandt only gained attention now.

Not to get too far off-topic, but these aren't unique clicks, are they? And we don't know how many it had before 11Freunde picked up the story either.


Why do you even want to leave it?
The way their management behaves and constantly changes I'm not so sure they actually want to.

No, they aren't unique - same goes for more or less all view counts that are quoted in such contexts which is why your comment doesn't really make sense. And why would people watch the documentation when they already saw the excerpt they are interested in?

I mean, it's funny but you're really clutching at straws here.
