    Certainly a valid justification, but that only underscores my reasoning for why he's not Bayern's greatest recent CL performer. Don't get me wrong, I am Neuer's biggest fan - but his return to greatness is very recent when you consider the last few seasons.

    I stand by what I said. Neuer is far away from my list of top Bayern CL performers over the past half-decade. Honestly can’t even torture an argument in his favor, it’s that clear to me. You’re welcome to your opinion, I don’t have strong feelings on it, but I do disagree.

    Then we have to agree to disagree on this matter which is fair enough.

    What fuck up against Madrid? I don't remember a fuck up against Madrid but one against Liverpool, don't know if that's the one you're referring to. Yes he was absent for pretty much all of the 2017-18 season, but if we count his total seasons at Bayern is he without a doubt the biggest game player for us over the years, there's so many games where he saved our ass or prevented us from being humiliated, the home game against Real Madrid in 2017 is a good example of this after Javi got sent off.

    Does this mean he didn't make mistakes? Of course not, there been mistakes against Juventus, Benfica and Liverpool as far as I remember but if you look at the overall picture was he the best performer for us in these type of games imo.

    And no it's not a fact Thiago was the best performing player consistently against top opposition - it's an opinion, just as mine concerning Neuer. I totally respect it if you see Thiago as our best performer in these type of games but he's not imo. Doesn't mean he was performing bad, not at all, but I don't think he's been that fantastic as you and some others made it out to be. Sorry to say.

    And again: I'm not trying to undervalue Thiago and his importance to the team.

    I still remember when I criticized him multiple times for disappearing in big games


    P.S:



    I like Thiago and want him to extend his contract and stay in Munich
    Agreed. Only player that always showed up in the biggest games for us was/is Neuer, at least that's how I remember it these last 3-4 years.

    I'm glad every day that he never decided to leave us back to Barça or Pep's City.

    What unhinged lunacy. Just remember when people call you a brain-dead hater, this is exactly why. The guy who left Barca for Bayern and has turned down numerous transfers down secretly craves a return to Barca? Lmao, I’ll be sure to file that right where it belongs.
