Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread - It Just Got Mythical
The way I see these German players are stacked with talent, but they certainly don't have a strong winning mentality as observed over the past few years (as observed with the massive amount of hoking on both the international and club level).
Pep is probably the BEST person in the world who can make them develop a strong winning mentality and he absolutely will make it happen.
Aside from the fact that players like Ribery, Robben, Schweinsteiger and Lahm have quite a few more years in them, they have:
Javi Martinez - 24
Toni Kroos - 23
Xherdan Shaqiri - 20
Thomas Mueller - 23
David Alaba - 20
Mario Götze 20
Not to mention they have some fucking strong talents coming out of their reserves too.
This should make any football fan (aside from Bayern fans) just ill by the looks of it. Although it's hard to predict how things will turn out, on paper this is absolutely terrifying.
Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.
