They looked nothing but phlegmatic sad shadows. Modric, Kroos, marcelo, nacho just old, slow and toothless. Their individual class in benze, Casemiro and snake and some dirty tricks saved them big time. They really could not cope with our energy but I guess our gas ran out in the rain. If we manage to put them through 90mins of what we showed in the first 25 we will win even if we miss 20 chances.

Thought ziyech looked great when he came on when I thought he didn't suite the game (though tbf the whole tempo changed for the slower when the subs were made). 

 

We have to play mount because his energy, directness and experience playing deeper will be crucial. Pulisic has to play. I wouldn't mind ziyech next week with those two. Would improve our decision making and precision  in the final third

Puli gave them nothing in the post match interview other than we will rest, be ready for our weekend match, and prepare for RM.

Good result overall. Could have been better but worse either. Heavy rain ruined the match, but luckily noone got injured and Pulisic is the only player who is booked.

Can't decide if this was a missed opportunity or not because think many would have taken a 1-1 draw before the game but there was the Werner miss and so many poor decisions made in the final third in the first half. Didn't create anything in the second half and the only 2 real chances we had was that Werner one and Pulisic's goal. Need to do more in the final third.

Technically the Werner chance does n't count as we scored the next minute.
After the 1-0 some more came his way that Diego might have put in, but they were not so easy ones.|
If someone can win it for them now it's Courtois.

You clearly haven't been following the news...

You cannot count Werner 1-0, Pulisic 2-0.
You can count Germany 2 with Werner not missing - N. Macedonia 1, final score.

Werner scares the shit out of me. He's really turning into a glorified Morata at this point. Literally needs to be served on a platter to score and sometimes that's not even enough.

That being said I would still start him next week. We terribly need a striker but I'll go with the same three up top and hope he pulls a Torres or something.

Haaland would be so nice playing with Pulisic, Mount, Ziyech....Wishful thinking.

This isn't to defend Werner or anything and Haaland might well be a better finisher than Werner but I feel like we've all been down this road before, where we get all excited about the shiny toys out there before seeing all that excitement come crashing down when we eventually get the toy.

For example, Haaland has scored 25 league goals this season but he has also missed 19 big chances. Last season, Werner scored 28 league goals but missed 21 big chances. And we've seen what happened with Werner this season. Will Haaland be able to maintain a similar goalscoring rate in a team that doesn't create many chances and in a league with teams that don't give many chances?

Will he prove another Secvhenko, or another Hazard in Real ?
Imponderables.
I hope we sign him and he proves a new Diego.
About Werner I remain perplexed. He does n't look like a panic man or in want of physical condition.

Well you could be right, we've seen young players thrive in other leagues then fizzle out playing English football. I would certainly say Haaland's finishing is better than Werner's ever was. Werner has always been a pacey player with good positioning and a capable shot. Haaland's left foot shoots out rockets, straight missiles. 

What I love about Haaland is his confidence. Yeah he'll miss some chances but he'll come right back full force with his arms flailing ready to destroy his next opportunity. Werner lets every miss get into his head and we're all seeing what that does to him at the moment. 

I would still take Haaland in a heartbeat but nothing is ever a guarantee.
