Flick always had the image of being a third wheel since Klinsmann, known as an insecure weakling. But then he kind of stepped out of the shadows at Bayern, so who knows, he certainly looks different now. I too think our team is great because I remember the times between 1994-2006 where we basically had a team on the level of Sweden at best (2002 only got us to the finale because we managed to play only against absolute trash opponents, and when we met Brazil they just wiped the floor with us), with pretty much no players in foreign leagues. When I now look at the cadre, it's Chelsea, Real Madrid, and so on everywhere - incredible improvement and you have to attribute this break and renewal to Klinsmann who shook a lot of things up in the German Football Association. Germany used to be a team that didn't have the best players and always just got lucky or played callous but it seems nowadays we can compete with other top teams without relying on luck or callousness. But sometimes we still fuck up royally (see World Cup 2018). >What do you think is going to happen in the election anon?
Greens are the talk of the town right now (woke neolibs) but considering how we are living in a gerontocracy with people over 70 representing the biggest voting bloc, people overestimate how much the young vote (which looks very Green right now) matters, so I'd say CDU might win. And honestly, that might even be the lesser evil - Annalena Baerbock is an incredible hawk against Russia and China, the think tank of the Greens has released papers that call for military containment strategies and punitive measure, meanwhile, Laschet from the CDU seems to at least wanting to go for a modest stance towards Moscow and Bejing (because he represents the old German industrialists who want to expand to Russia, Baerbrock represents more like the German finance capital and big tech). The SPD is a walking corpse and the Left Party is riddled with infighting between principled leftists/socialists and radlibs, has the entire media apparatus against them and seems to be in for a loss. AfD might increase their seats because people who just want to give the middle finger to the establishment think they can rather do it with the AfD instead of the Left Party. Lolberts seem to be in for a big win too.
