Barça has never not gotten a call. They've no idea how ...

to handle that. The guys are massively bigger, more physical, nearly as quick and skilled, AND aren't getting every last ticky-tack foul called? That plus your transcendental player being less-than-100% suddenly making your team rather ordinary instead of a dynamo? Yeah, the Catalans aren't used to that at all ...

These CL semifinals just made the World Cup next year more interesting, depending on where you sit.

The Germans are just too much.


There are, of course, a number of notable non-Germans

playing for FC Bayern.


More than offset by the number of Germans...

Two more regulars play for Arsenal. Of course, Spain has their share of players outside the domestic league as well. On balance, though, now that Germany's youngsters are coming of age, the reign of Spain is plainly at an...end. (read: ained)


Our Germans are better than their Germans*

As I said above -- funny how when Messi isn't being transcendent, Barcelona looks much more ordinary as a team with good skill to keep possession but not enough size/speed/flair to do anything with it.
