    It's like they forgot to tell Manni Burgsmueller that he should try and make a tackle on a missed FG instead of running for his life!

    VfB was fun to watch in those days. Elber should have never went to FC Bayern. Just one of many players that have fallen into that trap. It would be interesting to draw up a list. Klinsmann, Ballack, Klose...

    Here is my best guess...

    Back: Thomas Berthold, Bodo Illgner, Thomas Helmer, Rudi Völler, Ulf Kirsten, Lothar Matthäus
    Front: Steffen Freund, Olaf Thon, Jörg Heinrich, Karlheinz Riedle, Andreas Brehme

    You guys are both pretty close, awesome, especially because you both arent German what makes it more difficult for you than for guys like me who grew up with them! :tup:

    Back row: Thomas Berthold, Toni Schumacher, Karl-Heinz Briegel (Die Walz aus der Pfalz), Rudi Voeller, Felix Magath, Lothar Matthäus
    Front: Klaus Augenthaler, Olaf Thon, Karl-Heinz Förster, Norbert Eder, Andreas Brehme

    Norbert Eder was a difficult for me too because he only played a few games for our National team.
    Nice memory.
    And here is another one, this might be a little bit easier ?

    Vielen Dank mhnessie. My mistake with the first picture is that I over thought it. It is easy to know that Franz Beckenbauer and Lukas Podolski did not play on the same team. I was more trying to match footballers from a certain era rather than just trusting my gut feeling... (which was correct with Augenthaler and Schumacher).

    Kohler's mustache must have led me to Olaf Marschall... (as I was just going on looks this time). But logically I should have been thinking defender insteaad of striker considering who else was in that squad.

    Karl-Heinz Briegel (Die Walz aus der Pfalz) yeah i knew him......i would never have got Förster or Norbert Eder i wonder where ''Kalle'' Rummenigge is must have been injured or rested that day........
    That 1990 squad is a bit easier Nessie, the only ones i had trouble aswell with were Berthold again and Kohler. Awful haircut on Klinsmann. :laugh: Ha good old Guido Buchwald the clumsy defender i quite liked him no idea why. :D

    Guido Buchwald got his new nickname "Diego" during the WC 90 tournament, really funny but he was in the prime of his career these days. And no, I wouldnt call him a football "player", like Hans-Peter Briegel a typical German defender in the 80's and 90's. ;)
    Maybe interesting for Sandolf, Diego Buchwald startet his career with the Stuttgarter Kickers !

    Btw - I just noticed a mistake on the first picture from 1986. Of course its Klaus Allofs and not Olaf Thon, must be Augenthaler, Allofs, Förster.... My bad :eek::D
    Anyway, I wonder if I would recognize so many Scottish or English players on a picture from the 80's or 90's....? I dont think so.... :cautious:

    Just goes to show Germans have an ironic sense of humor calling him "Diego" thats brilliant! :roflmao:
    I thought that nessie, it was the tache that prompted my guess at Thon. Something told me it wasnt Thon though. :tup:
    From 1986 Mexico WC give it a look nessie see if you can pick out one or two. :)

    Hmmmm.....thats tough PackerFan71....
    Back row on the left is Gordon Strachan. Front row on the right Graeme Souness.
    I also think Steve Archibald must have played for Scotland these days, might be the second guy from the left, front row ? Goalie should be Jim Leighton. :cautious:

    You aint wrong Nessie thats a toughie allrite, heres the full squad.

    Back row : Strachan, Sharp, Narey, Gough, Leighton, Aitken
    Front row : McStay, Nicol, Albiston, Sturrock, Miller

    Souness was in the squad Nessie but foolishly by Fergie of all people he was left out for most of the games. :rolleyes: Steve Nicol was coach at D.C. United for a bit i think.

    Jürgen Klinsmann as well... (which just preceded my arrival in Germany). Guido Buchwald was just deposed from his management position with the Kickers recently. I remember him mostly for his contributions the the VfB club that won the Deutsche Meisterschaft in '91-'92.

    He very much reminds me of Winnie Schäfer who had a long run managing KSC and later some limited success with Cameroon.

    Strachan nearly joined FC Köln in the mid 80s but Manu stepped in with more cash. The Germans were very impressed with his performance against them in 86.

    You are right, Jurgem Klinsmann as well. I really forgot that he started his career with Kickers Stuttgart.
    And some more well known former (Bundesliga) players like Fredi Bobic, Robert Prosinecki or Jonathan Akpoborie played for Kickers. But did you notice that Kickers are also well known for their very successful Field Hockey team ? The son of my workmate plays for them in the German Bundesliga.

    Crooked stick ball hockey? No... never noticed that. A neighbour of mine thought I might like the game based on my experience with ice hockey. It is tough because you have difficulty breaking the habit of using your feet or the backhand side of the stick. I caught on with his team as a goalkeeper. My career lasted less than one complete game. I was red carded and not invited back... (unsportsmanlike conduct).

    In short... a guy was running at me on a breakaway and I noticed he had his head down. I rushed out at him and stacked the pads Hasek style. I got a piece of the ball and it bounded harmlessly away. But the opposing player took a flyer into the net. That was the end of field hockey for me.
