It hasn't been a good couple of week for german football. Three big losses in Italy from German NT, Bayern and Werder respectively, where NT and Bayern didn't even show up and merely went through the motion. It was this kind of disspirirted and disinterested performances that characterized the poor NT from 98 and up. Player-wise, many good players Klinsmann relied on are having awful years, youngsters like Podolski, Schweinsteiger and Mertersacker are having very poor years. Combined that with serious questions in Deisler, Kahn/Lehmann, Klose, and Huth, it looks like they can only fill out half a team. What can Klinsmann do to turn things around and to get the morale up? what's behind the serious shortage of football talents in Germany? And will Germany ever get back to being the football superpower it was in the 70's,80's and 90's?
