The price of silver on the global market has already collapsed in anticipation of all the surplus. Sad times No

ballack, what a player, i love him as much as effe and loddar

would swap him for schweini any given day

in 2010 with ballack we would have won against spain Shocked after 2010 lw was right, he was to old, still they should have make a clear cut, this whole drama ballack vs. lw-dfb was a complete failure

since then ballack has lost his good image

RIP Herr Ballack.

At least Frau B will be happy to spend more time with him. What girl wouldn't want to be with someone so incredibly proficient at coming second?

2nd place celebrations will never quite be the same again.

Mr. Silver himself. Vize Ballack. The living projection of Germany's dwindling winner's mentality.

If Schweini stops, will he hang up his scarf?

ballack had the problem that he was born into the worst generation of german footballers, what would have been pirlo without gattuso, seedorf, kaka, totti, nesta, cannavoaro and so on, and pirlo has won everything

you need classy teammates, otherwise you can`t win the big trophys, so ballack did a very good job, he overachieved with germany, many times; bayern was a disappointment, the squad wasn`t really good at all, a little bit above average, compared to the heavyweights in europe, also the german league had financial problems

Very Happy

I see Ballack in the Lothar / Effe mold

but as kroos said, he was very unlucky being part of a shittiest football generation Germany has ever produced

football is a team sport and there is not much more Balle could have done with THIS lot

career wise he made one glaring mistake

going to Flumps's Chelsea than Fergie's ManU

in Manchester he would have become a God

in London he was merely Flumps' stand-in

the move to Leverkusen was EXCELLENT

on PAPER

but injuries as well as the idiocy of Heynckes and even worse DUTT made this a terrible career move

and what a pity that Lw , arguably the WORST Nationaltrainer of ALL TIME, stood in Balle's way

with a Hitzfeld in charge, a title in 2006, 2008 or 2010 would have been more than possible

the clash with Lw was unfortunate since it happened at a time when Lw was considered to be a GOD by our idiotic MEDIA

if the same happened NOW

Lw would be in trouble

he is badly damaged after the 2012 fiasco

Lahm is mostly "just boring and downright average" and this silly "flat-hierarchy"-nonsense is DEAD as well

for Balle, Chelsea/Bayer/the Lw-era meant

being at the right place at the WRONG time

still

in 10-20 years nobody will talk about Lw/Lahm/zil... anymore

but Ballack will probably coach GERMANY

there cannot be many players who have worked with so many truly GREAT coaches

Yikes

Rehagel, Daum, Toppmller, Hitzfeld, Magath, Mourinho, Scolari, Hiddink, Ancelotti...

but the best thing is

Ballack understands football management is about tactics alright

BUT

it's mostly about PSYCHOLOGY

he recently said in a Zeit interview that whether a manager is successful or not

is all about whether he REACHES the players or NOT

well, actually, he said 80% was down to THAT

and he is BANG on the money

VERY FEW people understand that

they go on and on about tactics, systems, formations, strategies, scientific training methods,...

but really, NONE of this matters if you cannot communicate this WISDOM to the players

(same as in F1: you can have the best motor, if the tyres cannot translate the power to the road, it's useless)

THAT is where Lw, Klinsi, Dutt... all failed

even if their ideas had been brilliant

my hunch is Klopp will succeed Lw in 2014

he is young and POPULAR and will be given A LOT OF TIME by the DFB

6 to 8 years, probably

Ballack will take over afterwards, or after Klopp's successor

and as always

you heard it hear first

and as always

bernd will

NOT have seen it coming

Biggrin
