  • “All our players were bad” is 1. False (Thiago???) and 2. Irrelevant when it comes to a player who thinks himself the best on the team, especially a full-time goalscorer like he’s supposed to be. In a CL knockout round, Lewa has been the equivalent of scoring one LESS goal than we would have normally. His record in the CL knockout rounds is so piss-poor I’m genuinely shocked you want to defend it. There’s simply no excuse for a player of his caliber to have such an abysmal record with us.

    I’m completely uninterested in playing the “here’s a list of names” game about his potential replacement. Like last season and the season before that, there are 5+ options you could name off the top of your head. Lewa fans refuse to hear it so I won’t even bother, except to say that BVB just bought one.

      Thiago is nothing special as well on the biggest stage, sorry to say. I get that many of you love to fap to him and him doing some fancy skill moves against Mainz, but it's nothing different to me when it doesn't count on the bigger stage - just as with Lewa. While I do rate Thiago and do think we should extend with him do I also think some of you guys kinda overrate how good he was for us on the biggest stage. And don't come at me with "being a hater like Mavros" because I play the devil's advocate in this case. I for one don't hate Thiago at all, he's one of the more likeable players on the team.

      And yes you're completely uninterested to give me any names as there's no name that could give us a 1-1 in what we have with Lewa. Only a 35 year old Ronaldo would be better at this point. You wanna play the "throw that motherfucker out" game, but until you gonna come up with some classified names I ain't gonna waste any time on that rubbish from your side.

        Killing them softly....

        Anyway, your way of saying what stands for Thiago issue is much better than mine....
        But still....mine is mine.

        Also, dislike a player that some members here want him overrated and keen to establish him like a super star player it's way far from being a hater.
        I wouldn't mind Thiago being here as a rotation player, as long as if he is here wholeheartedly....body and soul!

        • I think most players failed to show in biggest stage in the last couple of years and once again i will say this the weak BL surely plays a role. Its easier to pump statistics in the BL. Lets take Muller for example he is literally nowhere in the last 5 years in the CL. His style of play is easy to shut down when the team is strgu5 vs tougher opponens and yet he has gazzilion assists and goals in the BL. He subs in vs x team in the BL and scores one and assists two other goals for a 5-0 win.

          Thiago,Muller,Lewy they all failed to show up in the CL

          I do think that our squad lacks quality for the CL and that is one of the reason why there are easier to shut down.

            If I was interested in replacing Lewa, why on earth would you think I wanted a 1-1 replacement ?

            I'm uninterested because its what the Lewa fanboys have said every years, yet every year I'm able to give our 5+ names and they never have any genuine response. So why bother doing it again this year? There will ALWAYS be world class strikers who perform in the CL. Unfortunately, Lewa simply isn't one of them it seems. Ironically, I already hinted a name in the post you responded to, and your refusal to even acknowledge it only underscores my resistance to playing the name game again this year. Y'all simply will not listen.

            As far as Thiago though, that lone-six role against Madrid was one of the finest CM performances I've ever seen. To this day, the ONLY game where Lewa was equally as impressive I've seen was against Madrid at BVB - ie, never once at Bayern.

              My biggest issue when someone say we should sell Lewa is not really because of the CL as I agree we could find someone who would be more useful there. But the problem is who should it realistically be when we see it from a bigger perspective? Benzema, Ronaldo and maybe Aguero is the only players I can see performing better than him on the biggest stage and they're all unrealistic for numerous reasons, their age do as well make it impossible.

              With Lewa you know what you got. He might be a choker in some peoples eyes and fair enough if that's the case, but you get a player who's always (and that is literally always) top fit. He's never injured and he guarantee us at least 40 goals each year, if not even closer to 50. Apart from that does his goals contribute to us winning the title that secure us a top seeding in the CL.

              I'm pretty sure the board would have parted ways with Lewa long ago if it wasn't for him being so damn fit and never injured. I also wonder a little because you and I many times talked about how much we value winning the BL and with Lewa you're pretty much secured winning the BL because of his insane amount of goals in the BL.

              But if you want more then I understand it. Like I stated many times, I've also been dissapointed by him in the latest couple of years but at the same time do I value him because we won't get anyone better when you look at the bigger picture and knowing our board.

              The reason I didn't comment on Haaland was solely because I don't see the point in naming him as a great CL player/Lewa successor because this is his first season in any top flight competition and no one knows whether or not he will be the next big thing, although I'll admit he got talent.

              • These are all things I fully agree with, which is why I don’t see Lewa as a transfer priority even if he’s not my favorite. Replacing him would be undoubtedly difficult and expensive, but I resist the idea that it’s impossible or that there aren’t other options.

                I definitely prioritize the BuLi over the CL but the sad reality is that we can have the league locked down with a striker half of Lewa’s caliber (so long as other problems are also fixed).

                  Replacing Lewa is not impossible but it's very difficult for many reasons, some of them I already stated.

                  About the BL I'm not sure I agree that we could win the league with only a striker half of his caliber, mostly because we have so many injury prone players, as well as Müller not scoring many goals anymore like he used too. But you also said as long as the other problems are fixed which they just still aren't not even close. It's been more than half a year since Robbery left and we still didn't find any long term replacements for them, as sad as it is.

                  If we had a striker only half of Lewa's caliber would it mean our wingers had to each score 10+ goals each year, if not 15+ goals each year and this is speaking only for the BL. Only player we have that gets close to these numbers are Gnabry and he only managed to score max 11 or 12 in a season if I'm right. In short we'll simply gonna miss Lewa's goals big time because the rest of the offensive is either injured or incompetent.

                  So I don't think we disagree that much when it comes to it.

                  • I think we’re on the same page, my “can” was probably better worded as “could.” IE, we could have the league locked down if we fixed several of our problems and had Mario Gomez instead of Lewa (not that I’d suggest that lol). Because of this, I know that Lewa is never going to be the priority here, since the league comes first and ergo the problems that impact the league (not Lewa!) are prioritized.
