Dortmund have lost their last four cup finals, including each of the last three DFB Pokalfinale. Though Frankfurt are a solid team, BVB are clearly better, and it's about time this club got back to winning silverware.
Make it happen, Tuchel.
Despite the officiating.
Match should have been over by the 60th minute. Lewy has been dreadful.
Nagelsmann, the 29 year old Hoffenheim manager, was in the stands dressed in all red tonight.
I can't imagine this costs Carlito his job. Refs/injuries really did him in. Well, that and his non-rotation policy and playing four guys over the age of 32 like five straight games in a row in over 25 days.
But probably not.
He still creates chances, but not of the quality before he started getting hurt all the time. Since Costa has clearly checked out (and as useless as always today), I hope the Alexis (and the Walker) rumors are true.
Get another winger and you've got a backup to Lewy and someone on the left side (Alexis at LW or #9).
winger and RB, also a backup for Lewy. Play Kimmich in the middle where he belongs, not at RB.
Alexis/Carrasco for winger, sell Costa, buy Coman.
RB I'll take Walker but he'll have an inflated English price.
And it wouldn't be inflated.
Probably 10-14m for Walker in that scenario.
I don't think Lewy is 100%. Boateng and Hummels are both playing hurt. They have no defensive depth whatsoever.
That said, it's hard to look at this season as anything but a failure if they lose today.
