Sepp Maier | 1974-1978

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 10, 23:57

Nickname: "Die Katze" ("The Cat")

Club: FC Bayern München



Growth type: Standard/Lasting

INFO:

Spoiler: show
Josef-Dieter “Sepp” Maier was born in Metten and played for local club TSV Haar, but moved to Bayern Munich before he played senior football. He was to stay at Bayern for nineteen successful years and barely missed a game. He played almost 400 consecutive matches between 1966 and 1977 without missing a match! In that period he was ranked as the best goalkeeper in the world alongside the likes of Gordon Banks and Dino Zoff.

Nicknamed “Die Katze” (the cat) for his elasticity, Maier was definitely a crowd favourite and often made some impossible saves wearing these long black shorts which he always had. Sepp was substitute goalkeeper for Hans Tilkowski in the 1966 World Cup without making an appearance, but he had established himself in the German goal by the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. West Germany reached the semifinals there, but two years later in the European Championship, Maier picked up his first winner’s medal for West Germany.

The summer of 1974 was the highlight of Maier’s career. West Germany hosted and won the World Cup, beating Holland in a tight final where he was outstanding. He kept a clean sheet in four of his country’s seven matches. The mid-seventies was a wonderful time for German football. Bayern Munich ruled in club competitions winning three straight European Cups plus a World Club Cup, and West Germany ruled in international competitions. Both teams had Sepp Maier between the posts. He was awarded German Player of the Year three times in the seventies, a rare accomplishment for a goalkeeper, knowing that strikers or midfielders usually win these awards.

West Germany were eliminated already in the second phase despite Maier’s great goalkeeping at the 1978 World Cup in Argentina. This was to be his last big tournament as a car accident in 1979 ended his career at the age of 35. Having won almost a century of caps for his country and 13 major trophies with Bayern Munich, Sepp Maier’s vast experience is now used in the coaching staff both at Bayern and the German national team.


HONOURS:

Bayern
German Champions: 1969, 1972, 1973, 1974
German Cup: 1966, 1967, 1969, 1971
European Cup: 1974, 1975, 1976
UEFA Cup Winners' Cup: 1967
Intercontinental Cup: 1976

International
World Cup: 1974
European Championship: 1972


TRIVIA:

He is famous for his duck-hunt in the Olympia Stadian. Whilst Bayern were pressuring the opponent's goal all the time, Maier got bored and a duck had lost itself in the stadium. Since no shot on goal was to be expected, Sepp Maier went duck hunting instead of paying attention to the match. Needless to say, the duck escaped all the dives Maier made.



VIDEOS:

Spoiler: show



(on 00:10 he makes a save; the rest of the time Bayern pressures Real Madrid)


(on 0:30 stops a solid shots from the edge of the box; on 00:53 he lives his line and disrupts Madrid's player who hits the bar; on 2:01 he saves another solid attempt from outside the box; on 2:48 he catches the ball after one solid attempt of scoring by Real's attacker)

Cause he wasn`t a GK who comes out often, was more on the line. He wasn´t like Schumacher, who runs out in nearly every situation.

This isn't Aggression which makes that ?

Actually it's the combo of Aggression and Mentality that makes keeper run out (as far as I know). Keepers like Grosics have really high Aggression and Mentality. Grosics has Aggression: 78 and Mentality: 93.

I think Aggression affects when the ball is far from goal, and shows how much the keeper stays aways from his line; while Mentality is just how aggressively he'll rush when facing an opponent on 1-1.

So, Zoff who has MEN: 92 rushed often on 1-1 and Maier not ?

Of course it also has to do with playing under pressure and so, I was only talking about rushing out of goal.

I wouldn´t be so trustfull about fussballdaten...It states that Kaka is 1.82, when he is clearly taller than Cristiano Ronaldo, who sits on 1.84-1.85. Check it:

See? ;)

I trusted that site because I thought they have better info about German players. Anyway, I have four sources. All four agree about height (183 cm), while 2 claim that his weight is 77 kg, other two claim that his weight is 78 kg.

77 kg:

http://www.footballdatabase.eu/football ... 62.en.html

78 kg:

http://srb.worldfootball.net/spieler_profil/sepp-maier/

I somehow trust more worldfootball.net, but then again maybe I'm not right. Any thoughts?

I'm agree with you... 70 is ridiculous for him....
If Jorg Butt has 78 in mentality, Maier should have 80 minimum....

Also for his short height his jump would have a orange value... it's the same case as Pfaff that has 90...

Yeah ment was a bit of a joke really sure he didn't come of his line much but he was superb with dealing with pressure, you just has to check his performance in the second half onslaught on his goal by holland in 74. My only conclusion to why he was given so a low rating was because of the whole duck hunting episode..
I'd rate it level with present day Van Der Sar easily

Fixed, finally. Problem with the editor if you put a 'space' after the players name.

Because GK 89? this very underrated, has a variety of resources and was very safe to danger.
