    I dont understand why people seem to always jump on the back of Ozil. Yes he didnt have a great game but he showed his class by netting the goal which helped Germany into the quarters. Ozil wasnt the worst player on the pitch, it was arguably Gotze, i barely noticed him on the pitch tbh.

    What was the row about ?
    Interviewer: It should be clear that you (german team) have to improve
    Per: What do you want from me? So short after the game? I don't understand it
    Interviewer: I just wanted to ask why the defense looked so shaky
    Per: Do you believe it's a circus act in the round of 16 or what? They made it hard for us over 120 minutes and we won. It was an up and down but still you have to keep the 0 and we won in the end. Let's wait 3 days and analyse the game.
    Interviewer: Do you hope for a wow effect like in 2010?
    Per: What do you want? Do you want us to get knocked out again playing fancy football? I don't understand the whole questions, we advanced and are happy.

    The interviewer keeps asking about the poor performance in a disrespectful way and Per asks him if he thinks Algeria are a joke team basically and whether he'd prefer if they played beautifully but lost. Said it was an exhausting game and that the interviewer should be celebrating being in the QF instead, and that they deserved the win in the end anyway

    Finishes off with ''ist mir Wurst'' =''I couldnt give a toss what you think'' :laugh:

    Sounds like he started getting angry for no reason. They do have to improve if they want to win the tournament. Players are often asked/told that after a game and don't take it so badly.

    The tone was disrespectful, Per was standing there sweating minutes after winning a crucial game and the first question is demanding why they played so poorly, as if Algeria were a 'circus team' that you should beat 8-0. The public reaction has been overwhelmingly in support of his answers anyway

    Of course they have to improve, Per alluded to as much but he meant that there was a time and a place for such questions. Journalists often take the piss like that.

    Germany have been terrible this whole tournament and are boring to watch.

    Just saw the stats and saw 70% possession to Germany, I sense pep ball came into play. **** life.

    Will watch the game though.

    That wasn't the whole interview. He first said that for the moment, all that mattered to him was going through. The reporter laughed at that in his next question ("well surely this can't be the level you wanted to play to get to the quarters"), I think he got annoyed at that.

    Today's Giroud performance was typical of what we Arsenal fans have come to know. We must be ruthless in buying a top quality striker.

    Tell that to grandaddy Wenger.
    I hope he won't just rely on Joel Campbell, we must bring in a striker of even higher quality.
    It's the official start of the transfer window, let's pray some deals are done.

    This is going to be awesome. Giroud and Koscielny v Mertesacker and Ozil
    Don't think Giroud will start for France though, will be supporting Germany anyways.

    Giroud, Campbell and Sanogo is fine - after all, we wouldn't want to harm Sanogo's potential.

    No. The kit is being launched on the 10th so Puma aren't revelling it fully. The clue is the colour behind the players ffs.

    Everyday, I hate our fanbase a little bit more because of stupidity like that, you weren't the only one smh.
