Number 2 on the list and 25 in Bayern Munchen or 13 in German national team, if you wish.
Association: Berkut (Bercut) also known as golden eagle. Why? Berkut might not look too fancy and may look a bit dull in comparison to smaller raptors in the way of hunting, yet it is very strong big bird, that knows exactly when and where to strike. Thomas is also known for that type of when-and-where precision. And who can be all around the field if not a bird of prey, keeping its sharp eyes on everything around, ready to swoop down right in the place, where it needs to be.
And in spite of growling association with big cats or other toothy animals, cats are rarely up to make some real sound - only if you`ll step on their tail, yet birds are much more noisy creatures, even raptors are up for some loud shouting in the air. And as we all see, Muller is also pretty much… talkative on the field.
And ofcourse, you just cant deny complete badassery of a bird, that is taught to kill not some of your mere birds or rabbits, but wolves and other birds of prey.
Only major flaw of berkut is that he is faar not as fun and adorable, as her Muller can be, when he smiles.
So, what the penguin is happening here?
Well… when it was one step before The Final in this year mundial, I`ve sworn to my friends, that if german team will make it, I`ll draw them all.
All of us know what happened after. So, as a person of honor, I`m getting down to my promises.
So, why Muller this time? No logic here. Just pure blind adoration towards this person. Also just got itchy hands to draw exactly his face right here, right now.
And, as always… My english, sadly, is too poor for me to tell you, how awesome he is.
Hope, he will be fine and lucky in his life. Just need to say great “Thank you” for great play and loads of inspiration that he and national german team gave me.
Anyway, that is why all the insanity began here.
