As per Krueger, he was playing the trap ! with amazing goaltending. (Gerber, Aebischer were simply amazing !)
Today, goaltending isn't at the same level. Instead we have a great game on the field.

Add better scorers, a goaltender in good shape ... and with a bit of luck, we could end up beyond the semis !

To change our view on Simpson, didn't we end up 1st of the robin round in 2010 ?
robin round classification in 2010
then we lost to Germany in the QF in an absolute scandalous manner, with a huge luck for the Germans and all the opposite for us ! 41 shots to 25
game stats for SUI GER 2010 QF
Then the germans lost to the Russians ... in a game that the Swiss would have won ... and we would have ended up in the finals ! with only an NLA team.
Simpson heading all this !!

So i wouldn't be too tough on Simpson.
Under Simpson, Switzerland beat many great nations.

I like our team, i like Simpson and believe that their is plenty more to come.
And i hope Simpson stays.
More or less I agree with you. I don't remember when Swiss beat two TOP7 nations in one tournament like in 2010. I am talking only about WC's...
