Thanks.

When we crash and burn, as we always do, I will act like I'm shocked.

Can't believe Klose is still playing at a high enough level to be on the WC roster. How old is he, like 35, 36? Ancient for a soccer player.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

You'd think Germany would have some other options up front, than an old Polish guy.

Forza Azzurri.

Klose is 35 but he is still deadly, though he has become quite injury prone. He also happens to be my favorite footballer, so I hope he breaks the record.

But they really don't. Some have suggested Volland, but he is more suited to coming in from the wing. He deserves to be on the squad, but don't know if he will be, as he seems to be one on the cusp, along with Meyer and Draxler.

You're likely to see an attack of Ozil, Goetze, Reus, and Muller, with Klose being the first in off the bench.

For the record, I'm glad to see Klose on there too.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Comments on Brazil:

Some surprising defensive choices and omissions. No Castan, Miranda, or Felipe Luis. Definitely should have been tabbed over Henrique, Maxwell, and/or Dante. My opinion, of course.

Plus, they are weak at keeper and up front outside of Neymar.

Mexico announce their squad. (Put in third post).

I'm pretty certain that if we make the QF and play either of them, it won't go to PKs

Added Japan and England to squad post.


Excited to see Nagatomo have a breakout performance in Brazil and become a big star. Also, interested to see how Okazaki does.

Too bad that Jay Rodriguez hurt his knee. Would have liked to seen him out there with Lallana and Lambert.

Yeah, that for sure is disappointing. We could have used his Spanish influence
