    So...does the Brazil coach (his name suddenly escaped me) get fired at Halftime?

    I mean no matter your success, I can't imagine in the soccer crazy country that Brazil is that you can get away with being down 5-0 within 25 minutes of the first half in your own home country in the World Cup. No matter the loss of players on your side. I don't see them NOT calling for his head.

    He will need to wear a disguise when leaving the stadium

    Scolari didn't lose a single match so far as Brazil's coach... well... nice game for the first loss.
    If you lose, you lose big time.

    It's nice that Klose broke the record and all but....

    Muller has 10 goals in 2 WC and he's only 24.

    Hands the worst Brazilian team in history.

    Maybe there's just too much of a European influence on Brazilian players?
    This too me is not only the worst brazilain team ever but one of the worst semi finalist ever

    But as for thomas muller, he's a really good player and i think he's the ideal role model (apart from some of his antics) he dont have great ability he has good ability dont get me wrong, he's not lightening fast, he's not super athletic, but he is a hell of a footballer, it just goes to show you how far actually having a footballing brain can take you.

    Yeah well...he ain't living this loss down. If he was in any other country I wouldn't think much of it other than an embarrassing loss. But this loss, in this context? If he lives past today Brazil must've gone soft.

    Lol I wonder what kind of encouragement speech Scolari is going to give to the players.

    to be fair Brazil has noone who can really create anything, like Gustavo and Dante and Luiz just passing around in the back, zero ideas except an occasional wing run, also germany is still doing a lot of mistakes on their passing and giving them a chance to get perhaps one goal later on

    Ive never seen them play like this, my brother was saying they are playing as if they are in the final minutes of extra time, the defense is non existent.

    Ive been saying it since the start Brazil is a fraudulent team that dont deserve to have gotten past the top 16. Reason they are losing is Neymar couldnt sign up to represent brazil alone so they had to get 10 other mediocre players to fill the squad this is what happens when hes not around now i hope it happens to argentina because they look even more fraudulent than brazil. Chile should be in the place of brazil they won due to luck and scrapped past colombia fuck it colombia should have been here.

    Im glad with these results also removes some of the salt from my france losing the fact that they only let 1 past them

    Oh yes I'm aware of that. What I meant was that despite him picking players they don't perform within their roles or as a collective team. At all. The cause? Could be anything, fitness, ego, lack of strategy, whatever.

    Im sure Scolari knew that too. But this performance doesnt warrant the statement that he's a bad coach.

    I stopped watching this ownage. Brazil's just kicking the ball around for the hell of it now and the Nazi's don't need to play too hard anymore.

    Its a combination of things. You take Thiago Silva out, and the defense looks absolutely lost. Theres is no replacing him and his contribution to the back-end and command he has on the field. You replace him with some subpar player that hasnt step foot in a game yet, and the entire dynamic of the defensive line shifts. You played 5-6 games getting familiar to your role then suddenly you are asked to do something else, Players get out of position and cant adjust. This ripples throughout the team. Offense is equally bad as they dont have a go to guy in Neymar that pretty much controls a good position of the midfield and into the offensive zone. Now Brazil is left to fend for themselves and make unfamiliar decisions as to whos going to do what, where as before they had a game plan

    But let's be fair i mean i'm no scout so i couldn't tell you about some diamond playing for gremio, but who else did he have to choose from?

    maybe this is just a poor generation of brazilian players

    I do however blame him for the way brazil set up, i thought maybe he thought that the crowd and the emotion would have carried brazil through, and went kamakazi, maybe he just thinks the players are better than what they are.

    If i were him with those players, play tight play 5 at the back and just defend, play for penaltys even, shit you might not have won but you wouldn't be 5-0 down either

    Well, he could have added a couple of older players like Kaka, Robinho, but he went for youth over experience in this Brazilian team and now he is paying for it. I guess he saw how well they did in the Confederations Cup and didn't want to change the chemistry of the team.

    Yoh is absolutely right that the loss of Thiago and Neymar caused even more confusion in this already chaotic Brazilian team.
