    If any native German speaker can tell me why it's: "Macht uns stolz, Jungs," I would would be grateful. I know it means generally make us proud boys, but why not Machen (oder Mach) uns stolz, Jungen? Is it Germ-English?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that's what it means.

    2nd person plural imperative.
    "Machen Sie" would be formal 2nd person imperative, also plural
    "Mach (or Mache) uns" would be 2nd singular informal imperative.

    Favre uses his subs on his wingers so frequently, I would think Pulisic for Sancho or Guerriero is one of the likelier substitutions given this lineup and this bench.

    The emergency CB start for a rusty Weigl is the biggest issue I see here, though. Five new starters from Tuesday should help the team not be too run down.

    Johnson likely at RB, it appears, which one would guess would be a 90' assigment that would get really interesting if Pulisic comes on for Guerriero...

    He, the coach, seems to be getting in touch with his tinkering self. They don't have that secure of a lead over the league to be starting Weigl at CB. He hasn't even played his normal position much of late. Now he starts Paco. Maybe he wants to see what a fresh, maybe CP, would bring late in the game given the success a late forward sub brought. They do need to keep winning. It's a long season.

    Weigl is starting at CB because Zagadou, Diallo, and Akanji are all starting winter break early with injuries, not because Favre is freelancing.

    How about the Jungs, versus Jungen? Forgot about the 2nd person plural imperative form.

    It will be very telling to see if he brings on a winger sub if it is JBL or CP. Now watch him sub in both around the 75'.

    If they are up, JBL will come in before CP. If they are down, CP will come in first.

    Jungs is colloquial, especially if the Jungs aren‘t really boys. Lads in BE is a good fit.

    It finally occurs to me that he employs a more defensive winger on the left because of how much attacking Hakimi does on that side and doesn't also want a super attacking mid on the same side. Earlier in the year Hakimi was playing on both sides but he seems to think it's more important to have him on the left than Sancho on the left where he started the season. balance in the coaches mind.

    Minute 2: Emergency CB Weigl goes down hurt. Thankfully, gets up before team has to freak out wondering what to do next.

    Bring on Pulisic! He'd make a great CB!

    3: Piszczek gets all the way to the end line only to fire his short cross right past everyone.

    Ensuing BVB corner comes to naught.

    Like Hecking. Ginter and Elvedi are injured and Jantschke just recovered on the bench, so they‘re playing with 18 years old Beyer and DM Strobl in the back.

    Piszczek playing a remarkably aggressive style, forechecking all over the field.

    Fabian has just been holding his position through 7 minutes, little to do.

    9': Transition offense, Alcacer run leads to deflection falling to Hakimi 22 yards out in the middle. Weak shot wide of the lower left corner. A well taken shot could have scored there.

    14': Good passing by BVB leads to well-taken cross by Sancho. Guerriero and Fabian collide going for it - no PK awarded and we continue.

    16: Hakimi sprinting up the line like a wildman, gets ball to Sancho in a dangerous spot, who is a little bit of a ballstopper this time, attack ruined.

    Great run and pass by Johnson in the 19th minute. Hazard should have had a high-quality shot from it, but he stumbled over the ball and was forced into a poor pass that led to a corner instead.
