Rode is someone we could really use, actually. I think we would have been better off keeping Goose this season and I think Rode can do some of what he did. The responsibility won't always be on Lahm to handle defensive midfielder duties.

I know Schweine's still not back to where he was, so any help in the defensive midfield will be beneficial. Lahm's done well in certain situations, but just wasn't up with the strength that Javi/Bastian were last year...I forget how great that duo was.

Sammer lighting a fire under the mannschaft:
“We’re delighted to be in the final, but I’m not happy with how we’re playing. There are too many lapses in concentration and not much by way of a group dynamic. I think we’re being too positive and too nice to each other. We need a little more fire and also the courage to speak out and talk about these things.
"We gave the players enough space for a breather after sealing the championship. If things stay as they are it’ll be tough collecting another trophy. But if we can get back to playing as we did before wrapping up the league we’re capable of winning everything."
