Kroos is straight up crushing it this season


pricelesslambo

Looks like a new man this year. Playing out of his mind so far.


ramdev2048

Really hope he stays. Been absolutely incredible


supplementarytables

Hope he extends, god pls


Aminemohamed24

He literally playing with a clear and peaceful mind, no world cup nothing to prove. I guess this is his prime season


kaehola

??? Have you watched Kroos in the past 5-7 years?


deputydawg420

How can u get offended by this if he's clearly joking hahaha


Aminemohamed24

He just aged like wine


MaTrIx4057

Murrderer

After having to be subbed out for Cama in all those big CL games last season and not looking up to it, dude’s come back with fire


Revolutionary-Disk-9

He's just too good man. He's so good he just flies under the radar but he's been one of the best midfielders in the world for the past 10 years easily I'll even go as far to say Kroos > Zidane over their careers. Peak maybe Zidane but the consistency Kroos shows edges it for me


Mazen_Madrid

Different kinda players , can’t compare apples to oranges


agnaddthddude

Fr, Zidane was like a maestro. While Kroos is like the most talented violinist. 2 different things.


imrankp

Kroos is the orchestrator or the conductor


Sputniki

Kroos plays in a much more withdrawn position, it’s always easier to look tidy, composed and reliable when you’re deep in midfield. When you operate in the final third like Zidane, the margins are razor thin and there is never any space. That’s where the wizards conjure something out of nothing but the risk of losing the ball is also much higher.


burialisfourtet

What a strike.


__mihajlo_m

Sign that contract Toni


HeIIbIazer23

He hit that so fuckin good, if he retires amma lose it


not_old_redditor

What a sweet hit


mylanguage

This is the best season of his career so far he’s been insane


uchiha_boy009

For sure, he’s going out with a bang. He easily could have played World Cup given the form he’s in.


Select-Stuff9716

Would've been on the bench tho


kostajepaosmosta

If we had to play aliens to save our lives he would start first in midfield


akshay_rathod_

Fhood797

Samsung ad vibes


SaltineFiend

If we had to play aliens to save our lives I would hope we could all set aside our differences and send this Madrid team


Dargast

Saying he wont start doesnt mean he is bad, jesus christ. He hasnt played in the NT for years and International matches depend on players having a rhythm with each other.


Substantial-Bug-3375

I agree, idk why the downvotes


Dargast

reddit is weird like that sometimes :D


aure__entuluva

Because if he hadn't retired from international football he would have been getting matches with the NT? The comment is irrelevant.


HitchScorTar

Lol


sotolord

Nope, I think he would have started alongside Kimmich. He did the last euro.


Select-Stuff9716

Yeah but last Euros Goretzka just came back from injury. I didn't say he shouldn't play, I just believe that Flick wouldn't have broken up the Bayern duo of Goretzka and Kimmich


[deleted]

Nonsense, Kroos was an absolute pillar of the german NT for as long as he was active. He was miles ahead of Goretzka and arguably even Kimmich, who got shifted out wide against England, to fit both Kroos and Goretzka in the center.


Liam_M_M

You're getting downvoted for speaking facts lol


uchiha_boy009

Yaa I mean I’m not advocating that he should be on World Cup team. He’s happily retired from German team, we will agree with Kroos decision


blu8blu

While I do agree he has been insane, it's definitely not the best season of his career so far. That said, let's see what the rest of the season holds


mylanguage

I think Kroos has had better complete seasons but these few months alone are the best I’ve seen him play consistently. I don’t think he’s at his peak as a player but performance wise he’s been superb for the entire season. Long way to go but I’m giving this year the edge…so far


blu8blu

I was actually looking at his stats on Fotmob and it seems the season to beat is his 2016/2017 season


misterrdlk

ZINEDINE KROOS


Enion

Great goal tag, if not this one


Mr_XemiReR

They just need to be fast, they don't seemingly have the time for the tags


Voo1d

For you, this is a banger. But for u/alexinup this is potentially 5k karma. Cut him some slack, man has to feed his family. Priorities.


not_old_redditor

Karma farmers. It ain't much, but it's honest work.


mildjonas

I don’t get what rm players have to do to get that great goal tag. The standard for us is zlatans bicycle kick vs england


OneOfThoseDays_

first of all, i agree that this is a great goal, but there are two things here: 1. uploaders are free to editorialize a bit “Great Goal”, “Golazo”) etc in the post title. A lot of them don’t do this no matter how good the goal (karma race, can’t be arsed, etc) 2. Mods can add a great goal flair tag after the fact (which replaces the “Media” tag). Usually this takes a little bit to happen since they are busy and don’t necessarily watch the highlight straight away


meefjones

Who could possibly care about this


mildjonas

I obviously thought Toni Kroos, one of the most decorated footballers and one of the best midfielders of this generation could finally be proud of his career for getting a great goal tag on this sub.


iowii

Fucking banger and a half


uncufunc

proper thundercunt


EpiDeMic522

Look at the angle from behind the goal. Caught is so well and curled it back into the goal.

buttonions89

I got my girlfriend a Tony Kroos jersey and she loved it. It’s the purple one and we got it at the Santiago Bernabeu. Of course I got my boy Modric. I’m gonna send her this GIF.


Karis_Riscos

You should get a Casemiro one for yourself at this point if you haven't already.


Vogelmaan

Please don’t retire, Toni!


Cool_Ad_9718

Kroos is gonna have to retire at 44 if he keeps playing that well


rocket_randall

For a brief moment he looked like he might celebrate.

Superjunker1000

A true Beamer. I tuned in after the Utd game and my pa and I were blessed to witness a volley of true brilliance. This kid has a future in the game.

Where is the “Great strike or great goal” flare?


FifaFrancesco

Good thing we're not taking this guy to the world cup, he's definitely worse than Adeyemi/Havertz shoutout /r/FuckTheS


gotech06

Kroos retired from International Duty after 2018 WC. Flick asked him to come back but Toni declined.


uchiha_boy009

This season he’s playing out of his mind. I think this is last season and he wants to go out with a bang. He’s way more mobile, faster than usual, intercepting way more, tackles, more daring forward passes and what not. Definitely his best season so far with Madrid.


FifaFrancesco

I'd have loved to see him do it for Germany one more time, sucks that Flick didn't. I've watched quite a bit of Real this season and he's definitely still got it, just like Luka.


XeroVeil

I mean, Flick tried to get Toni to rejoin afaik but Toni wanted to stay retired from the NT. Can't exactly kidnap the man...


KhonMan

Thought he retired


stpstrt

Its gonna be sad times when Antonio and Luka retire. We’ve been so spoiled by them.


uchiha_boy009

Yaa but I'm sure Flick will be brilliant for you guys. I love that guy. If he wants a next job, I'll love to have him at Madrid.


BehindGodsBack

Clear of Pirlo eh


uchiha_boy009

Dunno about that

Obligatory Kroos Missle


Die_Roten_94

I have never seen a team absorb pressure well and then stay as patient as RM while creating chances. To do this without Benzema takes it to another level. Yesterday, it was a master class by Kroos, Modric and Tchouameni on controlling the midfield. They are so aware of each other's positions and the opponents positions. They adapt accordingly without losing shape. I like how Kroos and Modric move closer to the fullbacks when they are being pressed while Tchouameni moves in front. Iirc, Kroos and Modric did the same when Caesmiro was around as well. As a result, imo, they are not entirely dependant on Caesmiro's defense traits. You can change personnel but the identity of the team stays the same. Credit to Ancelloti and the team. Well deserved win.
