    Noticed this in the ITK thread.

    Excellent (and hopefully true) if it comes off - much as I like Joe Jordan and have no personal animosity towards 'Arry. And hopefully sooner, rather than later, although that will be determined by Postman Pat of course.

    ??? Link? Your thread is in the ITK section and I don't see anything else about this? Is it a rumor about one of them replacing Harry?

    So Klinsmann failed at Bayern, and Low helped him do well with Germany.......not really the sort of person I'd want to come in and manage us.

    I've never been able to find anyone besides muckraking journalist that would suggest this is true. Not the most reliable source given the other about Klinsmann stories they embellished or fabricated into controversies. Bild were the main culprits, petty stuff like making a huge deal about him not living in Germany.

    As for him as a manager, at Bayern the margin for success is very different then what he would experience here. That club just forced out Van Gaal, a manager that got them to the Champions league final. People always suggest that all his success can be attributed to Low. Why because he's a good coach so ergo he must have been doing all the work? Well surely with Klinsmann out of the way Germany would have progressed further. What Low achieved many German managers have before him. I still think he's an excellent manager but Germany is traditionally a strong nation in international competition.

    I've been a HUGE Klinsmann fan for most of my life. So I guess I have a little bias opinion of the man. But I couldn't imagine him being the type of person that would accept being a puppet figure. So to suggest he had no input to me is disrespectful.

    Klinsmann wouldn't be top of my list. I would prefer Coyle or Moyes but I'm not ashamed to say he's in my top 7-10. I know one thing, he couldn't possible be worse tactically then Redknapp. He knows how to spot good talent, many of the players he brought through performed so well in 2010. He's media friendly, he seems to be able to handle questions well. Also having a big name like Klinsmann at the helm who genuinely is one of the best players of all time could be beneficial in the transfer market.

    BlueCrew......I would not want Klinsmann managing Spurs if were pushing for top 4 finishes and possibly going for a title, he's was a great player for us but some great players do not make great managers.

    edited my post for you.

    My understanding is that he is but that he has been trying to persuade his US-born wife to move to Europe.

    Klinsmann's Wiki entry. Note, this came after Germany's disastrous performance in the European Championships in 2004. If the Kaiser can give him the thumbs up, so can I.




    2006 World Cup

    In the 2006 World Cup, the performances of Klinsmann's team silenced his critics. The team recorded three straight wins against Costa Rica, Poland and Ecuador in the first round, earning Germany first place in Group A. The first game of the knock out stage was a 2-0 victory over Sweden, and in the quarter-finals, Klinsmann's team defeated Argentina, winning 4-2 on penalties. The teams drew 1-1 after 120 minutes after an equalising goal from Miroslav Klose in the 80th minute.[15]
    In the semi-final on 4 July, Germany lost a close match with Italy 2-0 after goals in the final minutes of extra time from Fabio Grosso and Alessandro Del Piero.[16]



    After the match, Klinsmann praised the performance of his young team. They beat Portugal 3-1 in the third place play-off, where he played Kahn instead of Jens Lehmann.[17] The victory triggered a massive Berlin parade the following day where Klinsmann and the team were honoured by the public.


    Afterward, Franz Beckenbauer, previously a strident critic of Klinsmann's, declared his desire to see Klinsmann continue as coach. There was also widespread public support for Klinsmann due to his team's spirit and attacking style of play. The team's strong performance is thought by some to have renewed national pride and restored Germany's reputation as a top footballing nation. Due to his success coaching the national team, Klinsmann was awarded the Bundesverdienstkreuz. He was even referred to as "Kaiser", a term meaning "emperor" in German, usually reserved for German footballing greats, e.g. Franz Beckenbauer.
