I think it's funny that 1 day after failing to sign an attacking player that would allow Schweinsteiger to go back to CM the Bayern website has an article on how "great" Ottl has been. He's played against a 2. Bundesliga team and a Bremen team that is down near the relegation zone, and STILL couldn't stop any of their attacks in midfield. For claiming that he is the most defensively minded midfielder we have Ottl certainly hasn't shown it whatsoever. His passing is adequate, but it certainly doesn't make up for what he lacks. Against quality opponents I don't think our back four will be able to take the 90 minute stream of attacks that our leaky midfield will be letting through.
