    Oye.

    Colombia's National Team ex medical doctor Hector Fabio Cruz on James Rodriguez attitude [marca]

    That boy is distracted , instead of working for the coming season he went to fix his eyebrows and his hair when he had to be working. Big teams like Real Madrid assume they (players) are professionals, who get prepared, but this boy is bad in the head, he is not okay.
    A player who spends months off the pitch, from one party to another party, how does he get there? If he prepares properly he won't suffer any of this.
    Cristiano took a week of vacation, he went on his yacht with his family to the Greek Islands and the following week he had 15 people working for the coming season. He's the most professional guy I know. James left the World Cup injured and he came to the beach, hired a private plane, and was relaxing. That can't be!

    Till the end, the banner and emblem is crucial.

    If you observed, the German top teams got the most boring emblems, always with capital letters, boring colors and virtually no symbols.

    Somehow those dudes and fans never understand what artwork can accomplish.

    Kinda disappointed from the draw, at least in Belgian terms.
    Brugge got a very tough draw, unfortunately I dont see the getting anything(not sure about how good Galatasaray are but I guess better than them).

    Genk should get the 3 place, anything less would be a failure.

    On the bright side i'll try to catch a good game, it would be great to watch Brugge-P.S.G or Brugge-Real.

    Anyone knows when they'll publish the official game schedule?.

    I have to keep reminding myself to skip the first 30min of the drawing event. What a waste of time.

    Ok with the results for Bayern. Tottenham is a fresh matchup, Olympiacos and Belgrade not too spectacular though. Group G is a disaster, so is C. Groups D and F are the most interesting. Looking forward to Barca/Dortmund, Juve/Atlético will cause some bad blood. Most unpredictable is H.

    Later tonight, probably around 9 or 10.

    Brazzo being a moron again.

    Seems we are also rejecting Olmo and Roca, who would've signed.

    Pretty meh summer if nothing else happens, we had the chance to buy some serious talent but instead loaned some vets and unproven 3rd tier talent instead.

    Edit: Brazzo also burned bridges with several players+agents, see Werner, Ziyech, Bergwijn, soon Roca by arrogantly telling them to wait for months and then ghosting them, total disrespect.

    Our defense is fn embarassing. Don't know what Löw is actually thinking by continually playing scrubs like Ginter, Tah and Schulz. Neither of them has some sort of international level. Hope this is a late wake-up call.

    You guys will be fine. Both teams will qualify, and I still do not have a lot of faith in our team beating you in a big tournament. We really need our young strikers to develop.

    Jogi needs to finally go away. Totally agree with you on Tah for sure. Schulz played terrible. He is dynamic on attack, but loses too many balls. Ginter is not that terrible, but yeah, overall, that defense is crap. Even now, Boateng and Hummels are miles better than these guys.

    Guy is sadly way too stubborn to bring back Boa and Hummels, unnecessarily backed himself into a corner with forcibly retiring them.

    Agree that he (and Bierhoff) have to go, but DFB leadership seems to care more about being buddies and image than actually overhauling structures.
