Discussion in 'Germany: National Teams' started by F96, Jun 15, 2010.
Great, maybe he'll move over to the Macedonia forum then.
The zeal some Germans display on this issue is slightly worrying, though, especially in cases where it is of no significane (like in that half-wit ridden WR thread).
The majority of people who bring this up on internet message boards just want to piss of Germans. In the ends, it's FIFA's decision, and they count the titles, so the argument is over. In the Olympics the current German team does NOT carry the record of the West German in official statistics. Nobody in German cares and they include them anyway in German publications. I actually participated in discussions like this in the past on BS, but in the end it's rather futile.
So? Why wouldn't someone Jewish normally not root for Germany in sports?
Does someone else want to answer this for me?
To quote a former classmate of mine: "Good grief, talk about bearing a grudge!"
[insert my younger self eye-rolling here, we had a lot of fun with this one]
I haven't experienced this before... I have only noticed it in the Olympics.
The magazines apparently need something to fill the pages till the league starts:
Ballack should ditch his agent.
Forssell just posted this on his twitter, lol:

Lol...Don't troll these guys but you have to read some of these posts....it's comedy gold!!!! Toward the end of this thread I get the feeling some of the Portuguese actually think they are on the same level as Holland and Spain.
Paul the Octopus has been offered a job as a multi million $ hedge fund manager.
Following from this, 2 more good pages in english.

The guardian's writer's give their top moments of the tournament.
Paul Doyle thought a certain american was the best player :
Player of the tournament
Landon Donovan – Seldom taken seriously by snooty Europeans, he exuded a verve and creativity that many of the old continent's stars lacked, and typified the positive attitude with which his team played even in the face of ridiculous refereeing.
Again, terrible anti-German bias on display here.
The best and most ballsy article was the one on the 74 final
This article has nothing to do with us except using players and system as examples for the FA to aspire to.

Nothing to do with anything and doesn't really fit in anywhere I guess .. but I just looked up at what age Klose and Podolski came to Germany (you know the no end discussion if Germany stole them from Poland) interesting fact that was news to me was that Podolski's and Klose's fathers both where professional soccer players but way way more interesting their mothers both played handball and actually played together in Poland's national team.
Just goes to show that there was a big conspiracy that involves Germany kidnapping Poland's brightest football talents (both genetically engineered, of course) to gain an advantage at big tournaments between 2002 and 2010.
We tried to steal Polanksi as well, but he proved to be too loyal.
