Melanie's first club interview. She will join ahead of the 2020/21 season. (Whenever that might be.)

she is a superb MFer

was the Bayern captain

2016 Olympic Gold medalist and Euro 2013 Gold with Germany too

massive signing!

would be like the men signing Leon Goretzka (and he stays healthy, lol, he is tracking to around 18 goals and 20 assists over 3600 or so minutes)

This is what everyone is saying. I hope you, and they, are right but I have doubts. When the deal was announced, I realised that I could not remember her from our Champions League game against Bayern a couple of seasons ago. This was already a bad sign, so I re-watched the game yesterday. 

For me, Melanie was not good that day. She was subbed, albeit late on, and then dropped for the second leg. It isn't just that she didn't have a great match. It's that she didn't look the type of player you hope for when you recruit an experienced international from a top club. On that night Melanie seemed awkward rather than smooth and lacked; elegance, touch, superior body control, and sharp passing.

For now, I take comfort from the fact that your impression of Pulli was better than mine, and hope it will only take Melanie a game or two prove that is so again. :)
