This is a soccer-friendly board so this might be of interest. Glad to see that ESPN is finally stepping it up with World Cup coverage - first Martin Tyler, which was huge, and now this. You could tell from Klinsmann's press conferences at the 2006 World Cup that he had the potential to be a solid analyst. http://soccernet.espn.go.com/world-cup/story/_/id/5148411/ce/us/juergen-...
OT - Juergen Klinsmann will be 2010 WC ESPN analyst
than US national team head coach? Or has he come down in the world since being offered that gig?
it didn't help that his team went all the way to the CL final the year after they fired him ... but I'm sure his name will be mentioned after Bradley decides to move on.
We have tried to hire before. He has a house in California and great coach. Unreal player that did it all in his career.
Lived in Germany summer 2002 during the World Cup so I got to know a few of the kraut players a bit. Klinsmann is a stud, very popular there. Plus he did backflips after his goals..
Wayne: Hi, uh we're here to see Handsome Dan. My name is Wayne Campbell
Bjergen Kjergen: Yah, I know. We've been expecting you, Vane Campbell. I am Bjergen Kjargen.
Wayne: Wow I love your accent, where are you from?
Bjergen Kjergen: I am from Sveden.
Wayne: Oh really? Whereabouts in Sweden?
Bjergen Kjergen: Kneurgen, near the Joergen Fjords.
Wayne: Well, nice to meet you, Bjergen Kjargen, from Kneurgen, near the Joergen Fjords. Hmm. Kneurgen, that's in the Klargen Province, near the Biburgen River.
Bjergen Kjergen: Yah hah.
I love the World Cup, but the pansy ass players make it hard to watch. I can only take so many fake dives and injuries before I give up watching yet another amazing soccer tournament.
This is great news. Whenever Bradley is himself, I often wonder what could be if he coached our team.
