    A disappointing end but this hasn't been a bad tournament by any means. We were spoilt a bit by the last World Cup.

    Has failed to capture the imagination fully but that's a bit of an abstract criticism. Is hardly a fault of the tournament that significant things have been happening outside of sport.

    You know this is 100% established right? Has been the case for 20+ years. No need to stink out the thread just because you're the last one to realise.

    @Uppercut: It was a boring game for me and I expressed that. Any ways.

    Yeah since the transfer market went properly global then there's been very few international sides that would have beaten the best club sides

    Spain perhaps would have in their pomp but even that's debatable

    Yeah Spain were the closest but even then the quality gap was particularly stark because they just played like Barca minus Messi.

    I wouldn't say much worse. Tournament was a solid 8/10 for me. Euro 2000 and the last World Cup I think were comfortably my two favourite tournaments of all time, hard to really put any other tournament I've seen above this one tbf.

    They're the perfect example of why club teams are better. Germany have poor depth in a couple of key positions that you can fix in the club game by signing players.

    Thinking about it this was absolutely Germany's for the taking if they weren't without 4/5 starters for the semi final.

    Khedira and Hummels is 2.

    Germany have themselves to blame. That's the risk you take when you don't assert your dominance by scoring.

    Not a great tournament by any means and it clearly wasn't any where near as good as the 2014 WC, but it was still ok.

    Absolutely dire winners and format though.
