I'm sorry, if I hurt your feelings. I won't mention Müller again, his name and his success seems to trigger something inside you ...Wow, as if Müller never had slapstick performances in his life. We're speaking of Thomas fecking Müller, probably THE top player of the last 15 years that had fans scratching their heads, thinking how a player on this level can be so bad at many technical disciplines the most. I mean, you blatantly ignore the circumstances (new team, no automatisms, 5 days of training, new country, new league, pressure, played out of position) to support your agenda. The fact that you consider yourself "objective" is even more laughable than Havertz' performance yesterday. But go ahead, keep telling yourself Müller is an unbenchable top 10 player in the world.
I mean, no problem with people being overly critical of him, like many have been in this thread - after all he'll have to deal with it given his fee -, but pretending you're objective? Sweet jesus.
As for being objective: Yes, I for one am objective. Literally everything I said is the cold, hard reality:
1) Havertz is still far away from being a world class player (has the potential to turn into one though).
2) His lack of physicality could prove to be a real problem in the Premier League.
3) Bayern didn't really get serious with him, because of the reasons that were mentioned (which Flick, KHR and even Holzhäuser confirmed).
I understand that some fans - especially Leverkusen and Chelsea fans - don't want to hear it and get defensive, but whatever.
Nothing I can do about that.
