    Btt: I personally still think a lot of Thomas Müller. I hope he competes again in his own country for the next Euro and ends his career with the national team in a dignified manner – assuming his performances and fitness continue.
    I would have liked to have seen him in front from the start with a filling jug in combination at this World Cup. Müller’s unpredictable runs and passes would certainly have provided one or the other goal chance…

    bam! That’s it. Müller as a 9er was important against Spain in terms of pressing.
    But that’s not his only strength. He can be an excellent unpredictable factor in possession football if he has a 9 in front of him and can be active as a space interpreter around it. His great strength. This is completely eliminated if he has to give the 9 himself.

    Sané, Musiala and Gnabry (or Havertz) do not have this quality. Used in this way, Thomas Müller can be a very important factor.

    I don’t understand why a lot of fans just see that he doesn’t score or assist and that’s just his fault. We’ve had all that before. Everyone should have checked. But well, Hansi Flick didn’t use it that way either. To be honest, that hurt. I think he could develop good chemistry with a jug. And I really hope that we will see that in the spring and summer of 2023.

    It needs a 9 in my opinion. A real 9. That would now be quite logical. And that includes Müller behind it. Just dribblers, that’s not either. Müller has excellent skills, and there is no comparable type of player internationally either.

    I very much hope that Hansi Flick recognizes this and wants to go down this path. And that he can convince Thomas Müller with it. Hey, it was Flick who heralded Müller’s revival at Bayern and gave him confidence. He should actually know what he has in him and how Müller should be used.

    It can’t be the end of Müller’s national team career. As a working 9, stripped of his offensive strengths. Sorry, but that would be a bad joke.

    What a curd!

    Germany only needs to line up 1:1 like Bayern. And just keep the shop closed at the back… Others with significantly worse staff can do that better. But what can you expect when you use players where you could already see in Munich that that doesn’t work… And that includes setting up Sane on the right (!) and Gnabry on the left.

    I wonder if Flick doesn’t get enough headwind at the DFB, Löw almost seems moderate…

    After the CL victory at HS in Munich, Flick wore himself out after he sheepishly and gratefully took over bit by bit. No, worn out is wrong… He started a public power struggle against HS with the wind in his back… but lost it clearly, also thanks to Hoeneß’s support for HS. That’s one of the reasons why he was disgusted (there’s no other way to put it)…

    To me, Flick looks like Löw… narrow-minded, narrow-minded, arrogant and unteachable…

    A good trainer makes the best of the existing conditions. Flick (he probably got it from Löw) only complains that the quality is missing here and there and lets his favorites play like hell, no matter how bad they perform… and it feels like injuries are needed to break them… The worst that could happen was that Müller was taken with him… And Havertz was written off too quickly…

    Hansi Flick lacks the eye for adapting tactics to the players. He can do a system and everything else doesn’t work properly… maybe that’s the big difference from the Nagelsmanns, Tuchels and Guardiolas of this world… they are more versatile and adapt better to the circumstances…
