yes, but the poor little bastard, when he left dortmund with a pocket full of money and a head full of dreams, publicly stated that he was excited to go learn from the great "pep gardiola" like it was the chance of a lifetime. and maybe it was. but it didn't pan out for him.

some players really flourished under pep. not gotze though. he sank. and he hasn't recovered since, not even back at dortmund. he's now overshadowed in the midfield by the likes of mor and weigl and even little pulisic ('merica rah rah rah). hell, even schurrle gets more play time than gotze these days i think. plus there are bigger stars-- like emeric aubameyang, dortmund superhero, and ousmane démbelé, the latest child prodigy. and when he's not injured (or redcarded) marco reus continues to shine-- reus stayed loyal to dortmund while the rats fled to bayern.

ah, bundesliga restarts in 2 weeks! eager to see some fútbol again. friday january 20 bayern vs freiburg.

I have a theory. Krampus emerged in countries, like Germany, that don't have a full league schedule over the festive season. He never hit Britain because football fans/players/managers have traditionally been able to withdraw themselves from the pressure cooker of family visits, shopping sales and Home Alone re-runs that inspire such rampant anti-Christmas feeling, into a winter wonderland of Prem brilliance.

Fair enough, although Spurs were never as rich then as they are now. And they've already stated that they won't sell him 'at any price'. They may have to renegotiate his current Ł55k p/w contract, though.

One rumour I can't quite get my head around is Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea all showing an interest in Ross Barkley.

Some tantalising fixtures there. Only one I'm remotely confidant about is Real getting past Napoli. I think Real have to be currrent faves to go all the way.

so you don't think pep city will crush monaco? they definitely should...

dont know much about psg and barca this season

benfica dortmund should be a really fun game. both teams are mobile, young, and aggressive. i give benfica good chances due to dortmund's possession obsession of late--they still have fast attacks but not what used to be under kloppo.

sevilla lester should be great too--i wanna see that, just based on paper

really looking forward to bayern arsenal... vidal vs. alexis ha ha ha ha

Honestly, and this is nigh on sacrilege, if he had gone to Liverpool with Klopp or Spurs a couple of seasons ago he would've been a much better player. Martinez fed him so much hype "he's the next Gasgoigne" etc. and teh fact is that Martinez didn't have the knowledge to help build him up to be a better player. It's the same with Stones.

Klopp or Ponch would have been a big help for him from the word go.

On his day (like the Southampton game) he's got all the potential in the world. Shame that that doesn't come out enough.

I agree with everything you say. It's especially sad about Stones. Martinez fucked him up just to sell him to Pep who's only making him even worse. His confidence must be shot to bits by now.

Barkley still has time but he needs to go to the right club. I'd even consider it worthwhile if he went out on loan to a lower ranked club, but one with a manager who can put him back on the right track and give him regular game-time. Eddie Howe's Bournemouth wouldn't be a bad option. (Look at how it's helping Wilshire.) Problem if he stays at Everton is Koeman clearly doesn't fancy him and he'll only go backwards while he's stuck on the bench ... the same problem he'd have if he went to somewhere like Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal. I mean look at how Wenger's ruining the Ox?

That's the fixture I'm most curious about. I know Bayern aren't doing great at the moment but Arsenal are very hit and miss too. Sanchez is their only consistent threat.

Have to favour Barca against PSG, just because they have such a strong record against them, but I really don't know much about PSG this season.

Atletico seem to be having a real dip at the moment but I've no idea about Leverkusen.

Juve must be favourites against Porto and they're the team I'd most like to see win the trophy outright (if only because I'd love to see Buffon finally lift the fucker before he retires). Their defence still looks solid but not sure how strong they are going forward. God knows about Porto though.

Sevilla vs Leicester. Surely Leicester can't keep this up - although that's what everyone was saying all of last season. Seriously though, surely not.

oh, man, leverkusen is in shit, 9th place at the moment, and the chicharito hype is not helping them because the sucka hasn't scored in ages

didn't watch them much in the group stage

im shocked that you've had such a loss of confidence on MC. im not saying this ironically. i know that pep can disappoint but he's never truly sucked-sucked-sucked.

bayern munich is not doing badly. they're back on top of the table. i think the players are adjusting to their new freedom under ancelotti. mueller has not been able to score all season or maybe he scored a couple of times. but they don't feel like they're in trouble-- they feel more like they need to find their step. and i think they will.

and seconded on the thoughts of juve-- i didn't know buffon hadn't won a CL. he's the greatest.

They may pick up in the CL but believe me, even his critics in Germany would be shocked at how much he's struggling in the Prem at the moment. MC made a brilliant start but seem all over the place right now. Individual talent is usually enough for them to beat most teams in the Prem but even when they do beat them, they don't look that convincing. At least not for a little while now. I'm not writing him off or anything but no team playing MC right now should feel particularly intimidated.

It's an absolute joke. It's now going to be a load of boring ass matches with the odd great game, as opposed to the other way round like it should be.

It's one of them things were FIFA is so corrupt that nothing will ever change.

Dismal. Putrid. As if we didn't have enough shit games during the group stage already. FIFA's decision could have been even worse, however, if in addition they had determined to extend the number of games a team has to play in order to dispute the throne beyond seven. The beginning of the road to get there now is rather risible, though: 16 (!) groups of three (!) countries each...

If they'd made the groups bigger to accommodate the expansion, I'd hate it, but not this way. Admittedly, pre-qualification will be a bit more boring but by having 3 teams instead of 4 during the group stage it'll mean an end to those dreaded games in the final round, between two teams that can't possibly qualify to the knockout stage. It should also make teams play in a more attacking style from the beginning.

The knockout stage will look after itself, and by having more games only increase the likelihood of upsets. So the only downside for me is in pre-qualification.
