Young Talent Dominates Rising Bundesliga

Post by FootballFarrago on Sat Mar 26, 2011 12:49 pm

Hi guys,

It's a topic that's been discussed a lot, but this piece has some really good stats to back it up.

Germany a good shout for Euro 2012? I'd say the favourites will be Spain, Germany and France, in that order.

Beware the wrath of ze Dutchies...

I'd be interested to see what odds I could get on Spain, Germany, Holland filling three of the semi-final spots France if Blanc continues his rescue act could possibly/probably/hopefully be the favourite for the other spot.

I know it never works out like that but at the moment and since the World Cup, if not before, those three have been so far out in front that it seems almost harder not to imagine the scenario I suggest...

The draw always throws up at least one "heavyweight" clash in the QFs, so the semifinals of these tournaments always have one surprise team.

So you'd probably get pretty huge odds...

Farango, are you on Ozil's payroll? The poster, not the player.

I'll be honest, I wasn't aware that Germany had any
Decent youngsters. Between 2 of our beloved
Resident Teutons and the media fawning, we ve only heard about the endless
Conveyor belt approximately 376 times.

But yes, they will be amongst the favourites.

Still, Spain are also consistently producing young players with less attention, winning youth competitions, so don't envisage a german domination anytime soon

Why are we even talking about a German domination since there hasn't been one for a very long time? Right now the Spanish domination is the real deal. Who will beat Spain?
Germany, Holland are there then Italy and France. Italy and France are a bit in the same position, younger players, new coach with lots to prove and still room for improvement. Holland and Germany have some great players. Germany have Ozil who's been playing magnificient this year. If he can get the form he has with Madrid he can certainly be a key player. You do need creative and great players if you want to succeed (Baggio, Zidane, Xavi, Iniesta, etc)...
I wouldn't put Franc ein the contenders because there still a long way to go. Blanc is the perfect coach for France. The defence is much better with Mexes and Rami, and the defensive midfielders are strong (M'Villa and Diarra) but there are huge problems regards to the attacking midfielders (Gourcuff is having a shit season, Malouda is playing crap and Ribery has just come back). Finally in attack there's only one solution which is Benzema, so not enough options.

What do you mean re. Ozil? He's mentioned once in the article.

Yes I can't see anyone beating Spain either. Think France and Germany will be the next best two. Netherlands always seem to fall short but who knows, maybe we'll have a repeat of the WC final.

"The poster, not the player".

Spain are beatable, as we've seen in the last few months as well as the World Cup. Football thankfully isn't that predictable, as I said.
