What was wrong with the tactics? Bad tactics didn't cause the goal. I though we were actually as good as the Croatians. The only thing that was lacking is fire power upfront.


Bad tactics meant we didn't creatr good goal scoring opportunities


We created as many scoring opportunities as Croatia!

This Rohr is a special breed of stupid, he’s praising Musa saying he might start the next game that he did well, but nothing on Kelechi that did better, not sure why he can’t use the Argentina friendly forward line, we need to win the next game and big. Wondering what he saw Musa do that we didn’t.



:lol: no oh, the Russians are always asking about Musa and whether he will play. That was why he specifically mentioned musa possibly starting in the next game.

:rotf: oh boy I can't stand Rohr's excuses anymore, he keeps complaining we have a young team but he choose to go with a young team, then the worst part is his so called young team played slower and more pedestrian than the old team of Croatia. Untop of that hearing him saying Musa might start just ticked me off men.

I don't blame you man. However, he is right that he does have a young team. He is clearly trying to build a team for beyond this world cup. The problem with success is that it beings heightened expectations. They got out of a qualifying group that few expected them to survive, so people have high expectations for them. He could not overhaul his team that qualified for the world cup with players that he didn't know. This team really isn't bad, but is still a work in progress as you can tell that Rohr still does not know his best line up or his preferred formation. He appears to want to soak pressure and play a counter attacking game but we simply don't have the personnel to do it effectively on a consistent basis. We are way too slow once we recover the ball, just look at how Portugal countered Spain yesterday and compare it to what we did.

What bothered me was how undisciplined we were without possession, our players did not press effectively as a team, and left eons of space between each other as they shifted across the field. It is very easy to pass around a team that plays that way and the Croatians did that all night. You would think a "german coach" would have drilled this into them by now until it became second nature.

What do you see in Rohr that made you think he can build anything post world cup? Is it the talent he has unearthed, the discipline, style of play, tactics? I don't see anything to build on from what he has done. I don't even think he knows the abilities and limitations of the players he has at his disposal and he has been with them almost two years.

The team has played relatively well albeit in flashes and has started to regress in the last few matches. In the games during the qualifiers, we looked a lot more organized and played with a high pressing/ high tempo counter attacking style that looked very promising. We also looked like we actually practiced set pieces and had "set plays" or them. The major criticism was that he appeared to be slow to adjust/react to what happens on the field. The defense was still quite shaky but was solid enough. I expressed concern that when you become a solely counter attacking side, you tend to have major issues when teams sit and dare you to break them down.

Over the past few games, the team has looked like a shadow of itself.

Not really. He avoided the question about why he brought Iwobi off in the 2nd half.

I pray that one of the journalists challenge him on this point in the press conference leading to the Iceland game about this club excuse nonsense that was put in the bin by
Mexico, Iceland

The individual who would have asked the question is sitting next to him.
