    Neymar? Ronaldo, Suarez, Ramos? What about Diego Costa? Franck Ribery? Everyone likes Ibrahimovic right?

    Bayern's 2012-13 CL run (the whole Treble really).
    Germany's 2014 WC run.

    In both, Kroos was instrumental. So as much as I want to hate the guy, I always keep my dislike for him in context with the joy he's brought me.

    Right, the only German with 4 CL titles, but 3 of those are a story of Spanish (and UEFA corruption) winning the day. His first CL title was a gift by the rest of the Bayern squad and he played no role in it.

    The Brazilians in 2014 were so outclassed in the 7:1 match, that it doesn't really matter who the MotM was. The nearly gifted goal to Argentina is a much more memorable moment than scoring 2 out of 7 goals against a team that fell apart within 25 minutes of a game.

    You might call me crazy, but I'd say that Neuer's performances against Algeria and Argentina were much more crucial for the Germans winning the WC than anything Kroos did in that tournament.
    Sorry my freiend but you are illusionated!

    I will only answer you in one thing, since in the rest we'd have to agree to disagree.

    Humiliating Brasil by 7-1 inside their home is the biggest thing that ever happen in world football's history. Something that will never....ever happen again in 3.000.000.000 years!

    Just want to remind the participants that I’m a dyed-in-the-wool Kroos hater too!

    Ah, the periodic Kroos debate. Sakujo you're so clearly biased against Kroos because of how he left Bayern, the fact that you call him a snake and say fuck him is proof of that. Can't take supposedly constructive arguments full of such resentment seriously. You need to watch all the games from 2012/13 again until Kroos got injured and while you do that forget about your bias, be objective. Kroos was phenomenal and instrumental until he got injured that season, and the fact that his injury didn't hinder Bayern is a testament to the quality of the team that season. And Kroos's injury allowed Schweini to play better defensively? Please, the presence of Martínez allowed Schweini to play better, both defensively and offensively, not the absence of Kroos.

    the answer is no, then Kroos had no impact on the most crucial part of that year's CL.
    he wasn't there in the though KO games .. the ones that matters at least, because I am sure we would have beaten Arsenal with or without him.

    Tactically the team benefited of his injury, his injury put Muller back on the SS position, with Robben on the RW & Basti as our Box-to-Box Midfielder. we became much more faster and lethal on our counters and we benefited of Basti's presence in midfield defensively ..

    indeed 2013's CL was a gift to the snake. anyway I don't care with this argument anymore .. fuck him.
    How can you be that sure when Robben failed to score against them despite playing 90 minutes at Allianz? His goal away was the difference between us going out or through, no amount of revisionism is going to change this.

    I thought he was injured in game 2, he was actually injured in game 1. So what? My argument does not depend on when he was injured: Without a fit Arjen Robben to replace him, we would have had to play a Gustavo-Martinez midfield in order to make up for Kroos's absence, likely by moving Schweinsteiger to CAM. Do you really, sincerely, believe that we would have managed to make it past Arsenal? Keep in mind, we only managed to beat Arsenal on away goals with arguably the best Bayern team in all history. If even one of those pieces - Kroos included - were missing, we wouldn't have made it past the round of 16.

    What possible importance does game 1 or 2 against Juve have?

    Keep in mind the comment that initiated my response:



    This is patently, empirically false.

    I don't want to go into Kroos vs Thiago debate

    But Kroos winning 4 CL titles is a bad argument IMO

    He may had an impact on the season as a whole but not on the CL as we went through the most critical stage of it without him, Infact as Die Roten Min said we actually became much better without him.

I can't care less if he is good or bad or if he really deserved those titles or not. He is a scumbag and does not deserve to have his name anywhere near my club's name. That's all.
    lol wat. He's a mercenary because he asked for a better contract that would've put him on par with Gotze. The Bayern board made his choice pretty easy since they didn't really want him and were undervaluing him (i mean, they sold him for peanuts).
