Magath always does best when he doesn't have money to work with (c.f. Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Schalke in his first season) and completely screws up once they hand him a seemingly limitless transfer budget (c.f. Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Schalke in his second season).

Good point.

Didn't play close enough attention to notice that. Liked him. Now I'm disappointed. So basically now he needs to be sacked because with Gazprom Schalke will always have money.

Yeah, and he had the opportunity of the transfer window. As I said, he's always at his best when he has to rely on a club's youth and reserve teams, but he's simply no good at keeping a team together for a second season or at guiding young players once he's given them their breakthrough.

Magath has signed truckloads of new players

the squad is bloated as well

it will take about two months before he has a MANNSCHAFT that plays his football

also bear in mind that Magath is currently trying to change the way Schalke play

last season was mostly counter-attack-football

THIS season Magath has the players to be more attack-minded

as he pointed out himself

this will need TIME though

Schalke will try to get a Europa League place this time, with luck a CL place is on the cards

NOT more

ie

this is a TRANSITION YEAR

Magath is REINVENTING and REBRANDING Schalke

on the pitch and BEHIND the scenes as well

he needs a bit of time

bear in mind

he needed TWO years at Wolfsburg as well

but Wolfsburg are SO PLASTIC that he had FREE REIGN to do his thing

Schalke are SO HISTORIC and ICONIC , they are almost like a big OIL TANKER though

Magath is on a FOUR-YEAR schedule to deliver the title at Schalke

and he WILL do so in that period

the REAL question is how long it will take before Wolfsburg sack McLaren, Stuttgart sack Gross or Bayern get rid of van Qual

I like van Gaal meanwhile. He's a bit "special" at times, but really an intelligent fellow, an excellent coach and often quite entertaining as well. His main motivation is to develop (young) players and a team, not just buying success. I think he is good for Bayern and Bayern is good for him. Let's hope Rummenigge can convince him to stay a few more years.

Both cartoons are great.

The previous one is quite an amusing warning with regards to Otto's 'conveyor belt of talent' as well.

This from the Guardian's Fiver column today;

"We'll need more time to make it work. We've lost against Bayern and Dortmund, they're both title contenders" - Zweicond-Deutsch Zteve after his Wolfsburg side went down to their third successive defeat.

"It's nice of him to call us challengers but he's obviously not been here that long and doesn't really know what's going on" - Dortmund manager Jürgen Klopp's succinct reply.

In other story - on 2nd Bundesliga front Cottbus and Karlsruhe had a fun game - it all started after 19 seconds, when Cottbus scored 1st goal, then hosts scored second, then guests replied with 5 straight goals and had a clear lead after 60 minutes. Maybe clear, but not clear enough - Cottbus pulled back, scoring 3 goals over 6 minutes and game ended 5:5. Wink

dont think magath has to fear anything at schalke about getting fired


even the media is not really harsh on him right now, he still gets a lot of respect thanks to his great years as coach he had

he will get the time he needs to bring schalke on course again

Mario Götze
"Idol" by name and idol by nature. For the manner in which 18-year old Mario Goetze has emerged from nowhere and dazzled Borussia Dortmund's suppporters and coach Juergen Klopp is reminiscent of the impact Thomas Mueller has made at Bayern Munich. An attacking midfielder who can play on either flank, Goetze (whose surname translates to "idol") has lined up already this season alongside established stars such as Lucas Barrios, Nuri Sahin and Sebastian Kehl.

Career And Success

The Memmingen-born player made his debut for Dortmund's under-17 side at the age of 15 years old. Despite many injuries, which set him back, he managed eight goals and two assists and often completed the full 80 minutes. At 16, he was promoted to the under-19 team. He also suffered greatly with injuries and could only take part in 13 out of 26 matches. However, he was still able to score a further eight goals and assist seven more. For all his impressive performances, he was named in Marco Pezzaiuoli's starting XI at the 2009 U-17 European Championships, which Germany went on to win. He also took part in the Under-17 World Cup that same year and helped Germany reach the quarter-finals where they were knocked out by eventual winners Switzerland.





His performance in both under-age tournaments helped earn him the prestigious Fritz Walter gold medal given to the best player in Germany aged 17 or under. From there followed his first-team debut for Dortmund on November 21, 2009 against Mainz. He made his first appearance as a late substitute for Jakub Blaszczykowski. Since then, Goetze has become an integral part of Juergen Klopp's first choice XI. He played the full 90 minutes in Dortmund's first two games of the Bundesliga season and scored his first Bundesliga goal in front a full house at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart as Dortmund came away with an impressive 3-1 victory. Goetze has also featured in this season's Europa League campaign, starring with two goals in Dortmund's 4-3 group stage win away to Karpaty Lyiv, including a vital winner in the second minute of stoppage time. It therefore comes as no surprise that he won this year's Fritz Walter gold medal at the U-18 level.

Strengths And Weaknesses


A versatile attacking player, Mario fits in perfectly to Klopp's 4-2-3-1 system, as he can play any of the three positions behind the main striker. He normally starts on the right for Dortmund but played as the number 10 for the German youth sides. His versatility is further aided by the fact that he is two-footed. Despite his youth, he exudes calmness in his play, shows good vision, and has a sharp eye for delivering defence-splitting balls into the lone striker, Lucas Barrios. Furthermore, he is a threat with his long range shooting and capable of making a sizeable goalscoring contribution to the team. It is interesting to note that he has played in five different teams in the last three years, and has fit in to every side without any problems, highlighting his adaptability.

On the other hand, his susceptibility to injury remains a weakness. In three years he has not yet played an entire season injury-free and it remains to be seen whether he can cope with the rigours of a full Bundesliga season. He also needs to work on tracking back to help out the full-back, especially if he plays on the left in front of an inexperienced Marcel Schmelzer. In such a young side as Dortmund's, it is vital that the attacking midfielders do their bit to help out the defence.

Where Goetze Fits Into Klopp's Plans


Mario Goetze most certainly has the opportunity to play regularly in Dortmund's fresh, young side. There is no doubt that Dortmund have immense competition for places in attacking midfield with the likes of Mohamed Zidan (currently injured), Blaszczykowski, Kevin Grosskreutz, Tamas Hajnal, Shinji Kagawa and Goetze himself fighting over three places. Should Goetze succeed in overcoming this competition for places and establish himself in the side, he could well become a star for both club and country in the years to come.
