    Reus misses the game. It will be tough but we need the win if we want to advance.
    Barca only drew against Prague.

    0:1 after 5 minutes, just what you want against an Italian team. Horrible defending.

    Has Hummels really been good for Dortmund? First leg he also conceded a PK and now just followed Lautaro all through

    Yes, Hummels was good for us and is our best defender, especially the game against Barca was a master class. There is a reason why a discussion developed to recall him for the NT Our defense was busted by losing the duel at the middle line.

    exactly.. what a second goal!
    that's Conte.
    They are playing with freedom and creativity. Playing the short as well as the long. We're too one-dimensional.

    Out of the CL by the fourth game. We needed to sack him before the Inter games. It's pathetic. This is a quality team. Sack him before the Bayern game please.

    Let's also stop pretending Witsel is good enough. He is not.

    Akanji has been poor for a long time now too. Zagadou deserves a chance.

    Can Favre finally be sacked? I mean, even Slavia Prague plays with more grit and determination than this pathetic lot. The only good player in this first half has been the fans. Everyone else can pack their bags and f**k off to wherever they want.

    Yes, we look horrible and these games against Inter should be eye-openers for the management. We look like amateurs at times. Inter just gets the job done, very mature, controlled and clinical.

    Brandt had a recent good development but today makes too many easy mistakes. Every lost ball isn't only a lost opportunity to attack but also hurts because you need to win the ball back. Also when you look at the other teams, it's obvious what a difference quality strikers makes. We need more options than Alcacer, especially with his injury issues.

    Name the players who were better than him in these matchups against Inter. It will be a very short list.

    They are having a lot of success on their press, I think because they know we don't play long balls. So they have fewer places to put players and press. Whereas when they have the ball they are spreading the field, and playing short and long so we can't press them as effectively.

    What we see here is the difference between having a proper manager, someone with a winner's aura and someone with the character of a chicken. But knowing our idiotic management, they will wait while we continue to flop for 2-3 more months and after that we will find the next budget option. This entire approach is so flawed that it hurts.

    Chelsea are stupid for firing Conte. His teams are a lot of fun to watch. I don't care if anyone calls him too defensive.

    Most of the others are young and don't play in key areas. I am tired of us losing the midfield with slow passing. He does not offer great coverage either.

    Gotze is not a striker.

    Schulz, Brandt and Hazard have must arrived.

    But it's not only scared Favre ball. Our defense was extremely high for the first goal considering the circumstances. We had some counter opportunities after Inter mistakes but they won't be that open. It seems pointless to stand so high after 5 minutes. Akanji loses the header and we look like a youth team in the back.

    Opinions vary. He can't do it alone. I don't think any of our other midfielders are better against the press or at holding the ball. It's also up to his midfield partners to contribute creative elements. For the game at Inter, I thought he was maybe among 2-3 guys max who showed some quality and we would have looked even more lost without him.

    2:2 Brandt. Very good second half so far. Just continue playing like that.

    Hakimi should play striker position from now on
