Reus got the nod last night over Podolski. Podolski is getting old, and he's not playing along Ballack to make him look like a super star anymore. Most Germans just don't want to accept it
I know, Reus has become a consistent starter lately. My point is that it's taken entirely too long for it to happen.
Why do people hate Gomez?
I think it's more that everyone loves Klose and for so long it's been Klose v Gomez. Plus Gomez has a tendency to blow great chances whereas Klose is a machine.
