He's inspirational to Chelsea though. Can't take that from him.
Bunch of racists.

You still support an English team, so hype from the media and the league in general will definitely effect your opinion of a player. Germans are barely overhyped at all here. Most pundits were saying Germany had an average squad for the 2010 WC.

I guess you just watched the Blackburn and Chelsea games right? A few days after the Chelsea game he had a good game vs. Marseille. There's a video somewhere on YT, and most of the time his positioning is spot on, I'm not quite sure how you can say that. He has been solid most of the games he has played here, barring those two. Give him a chance at least, he was signed on deadline day and has barely been here two months, it's dumb to write a player off arriving in a new country, adjusting to a new pace. He doesn't have 78 caps for Germany at 26 for no reason. His aerial ability when under pressure is surprisingly his weakest asset, he reads the game quite well. He is quite good at heading the ball coming into the box but isn't the best off set pieces. Him playing the ball out of the back isn't that good either. How many goals that we have conceded can you put down to his pace? Hardly none, most are because of his poor arial ability under pressure.



I always find it funny that Terry is the benchmark of a great defender, then Mertesacker is criticised of his pace. Per has a higher top speed, and is only slower in short distance areas. Agree with the second point though, a more mobile centre back beside him helps a lot. Him partnering Squilacci would be a disaster.


nice double standards

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Muller can easily transition into a striker, tho with Gomez as he is and Klose still active, they don't need anybody else atm.

The media were saying he was average etc. Happens all the time if new players don't make instant impact.

Like De Gea? That one was absolutely moronic.

With De Gea the media has been proven right for once. They said his catching is poor and it will take him a while to adjust to the more physical style of corners in the Premiership and it is doing.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Yeah, but they kept acting like he would lose games for United and he was "weak link". It was really silly.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

De Gea has been solid after the Tottenham game really and has been one of the reasons we've remained in the game at times. His performance against Stoke was his best performance so far this season after the pundits were predicting he'd struggle against a team like Stoke. If it wasn't for him, we could have lost that game. He was also sensational against Liverpool and a contender for Man of the Match in that game.

He's a fantastic shot stopper and he's much more confident when the defence passes back to him and his distribution it spot on. He has done alright catching balls when they are crossed in but he does get beaten to the ball at times and doesn't win it when he should. He hasn't been that effective on corners and seems to leave it to the others to knock it out of the box but other than that, he's been solid since mid-September time.
