I'm sitting on the fence with Jürgen Klinsmann. Always enjoyed seeing him in action on the pitch, but as a coach, he hasn't proven a lot. Like others here, I fear he might try to imply ideas on the players that they cannot execute. We'll see.

Do you have proof of that? People like to say that but no one has any proof of that. If you have some kind of proof, I would love to see it.

Jurgen went 6-1 in the World Cup with Germany. You cannot do that if you arent a good manager no matter what team you are coaching. No many sides have won 6 games in the same World Cup.

Wow.... Did you really just say that? Bradley was a very poor manager. He couldnt recognize talent, stuck with mediocre players, is a poor tactician, and a poor game manager. I could go on and on.

If you think Bradley is a better manager than Klinsmann then you need to go find a new sport to follow because it is apparent you know little to nothing about the this one

Congrats, you wont the award to dumbest thing I have read all week. It takes a lot to take that title, you should be proud.

I have seen some people write about not liking Jurgen but you are the first to say that Bradley is better. That is beyond foolish. Wow...

Taking a national team to a 6 win, 1 loss performance in a World Cup is nothing?

His firing at Bayern was not based on team performance but rather a difference of how the team should be ran.

you can sit there and try and convince yourself if you want, but you will not convince me, i can tell you that now, TBH with you i have held back, i think he is a terrible manager, and you will find that out soon in the states, you are clinging to the germany thing, he had a world class coaching staff behind him, as well as jurgen low, who is a better manager than klinsmann 9 fold. good player, untested manager and you are trying to convince your self he is world class, open your eyes, aston villa were wanting bob bradley, i can tell you one thing they wouldn't touch klinsmann with a barge pole!

To be fair Villa has American ownership and I think that holds some water in their former "interest" in Bradley.

Bradley had much success in MLS and I expect to see him back with the Chicago Fire soon. Guiding the USMNT he had many success' but some serious draw backs. His biggest problem, in my opinion, was reliance on certain players, no matter what, for too long. I also think he's too passive and can't fire up a team (which I think Klinsmann can do) and I think our national side is a bit soft and coddled.

That doesn't mean that said owner can spot a good manager.

Let's not forget that the NFL team Mr. Lerner owns is the Cleveland Browns.
