Hertha hopeful on Arne If you ask me, other than Marcelinho, Arne Friedrich is the only other great Hertha player. The rest (although Gilberto is having a great season) are merely average, servicable players, and the strikers are totally crap. He's a good goalscorer as a defender (although he hasn't scored yet for die Nationalmannshaft) and is a good dribbler of the ball. He is also an important defender on die Bundesliga's stingiest defense (only allowed 10 goals so well). He is essential for Hertha's attempt to get into Europe and if Bayern get him, there is no one on the Hertha team can replace him.
