Unfortunately every team has one of those players that the manager trusts but is useless, England's is Sterling

I'd be glad if ours had only one - my last count is three, Özil, Khedira and Müller. I think my dad was yelling about five. :lol:

It's also a good job this thread is now GIF free.....

 

...there are some absolutely horrendous ones of the German manager floating around the webs. :lol:

There's way worse than that.

He's not exactly undisputed. I don't think he ever has been, not even four years ago. Definitely not now. Too many questionable decisions.

Of course had they won again everyone would have been "told you so!", but now these decisions come back to haunt him.

Expect a new manager after this.

I did mention that they extended his contract early before the tournament when there wasn't any need?

But will he be able to? The newspapers are speculating that he just cant stay, plus some player might retire from the natinal team. Alot of work to be done and soon there will be Euro 2020 qualifications.

They extended his contract unnecessarily, so yeah, I expect some officials actually are trying to stick with him. Not that I agree...

Some players who are rumoured to retire I don't consider a big loss personally either.

Ozil looked particularly disinterested-pity 'cos he's a cracking player (when he's in the mood)

3rd of July my country will stand still, play off against Switzerland. This is the best we have done since 1994.

That "being in the mood" thing is the problem with him for sure.

We weren't good enough in qualification and didn't make it to the tournament.

 

But last time we were in one we didn't bring the insufferable arrogance that the English fans/media do. Ever since they beat Panama (Panama!) we have had to put up with endless renditions of 'it's coming home' etc. so I am so relieved it's over.

 

And as the saying goes: "il rentre à la maison".

It would be nice if they do, it's good when the underdog wins.  They were talking about it all at work last week and I can't believe there are so few countries that have actually won it
