Hope Klinsmann Continues

Well I`m still sad that we just lost to Italy but I hope Klinsmann continues as coach of the German team. He created a young team that played super football during the tournament. It was fast, modern football and very entertaining to watch. If he continues with this team than we will see a very strong team in EC2008 and WC2010. Way to go Klinsmann.

Yes, well I wanted to say this, and this seems an appropriate place to put it:

Germany wasn't one of the most powerful teams entering this World Cup. It is a young side, and arguably has just a single truly world-class player in the shape of Michael Ballack.

And yet.

Aside from being the magnificent hosts everyone always knew they would be, this German side have performed above all expectations, playing an exciting, attacking brand of football. Where teams such as Brazil, England and Holland have underperformed, where Argentina ultimately flattered to deceive, and limply gone out of the competition, Germany have played wonderfully well, making use of every ounce of their ability.

German fans will doubtless be bitterly disappointed at their exit, but reaching a semi-final, and reaching it in such style, is far beyond what most observers thought this team capable, even with home advantage.

When the dust settles a little, you should be deeply proud of this team for upholding the great tradition of German football, but doing it in a manner so entertaining you even had the many of the old footballing enemies in England and Holland cheering you on.

Well done Germany.

First this fuc.ing game, this afternoon a Dutch wishing Germany the best and now an Engerlaender praising German football...WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO DESERVE THIS  cry   cry 

And somehow I believe Klinsmann will go back to America, the magic is over, the old farts in DFB will take over again and destroy all that has been built by the Klinsmän!

You could be right, but I think that there will be way too many people who will persuade Klinsi to continue, so I guess that he will stay! The German football will lose a very, very important person when he would wuit and I would be sad about that!

Anyway, off to place #3, and to win the Euro2008!!! Big grin

Do you all over there care about this? In our one and only semi-final in my lifetime, I couldn't give a stuff about the 3rd/4th place play-off, yet you sound like it matters to you.  Confused

Yeah; Even though my interest in football is usually pretty limited, I must say I really enjoyed what they had to give, and I really appreciate the way they did it.

And if they even managed to soften the stone-hearted arch-enemy from across the channel, they must really have done somehing right.
Thanks! And I hope I'll one day be able to return the compliment!  bigthumbsup

I truely loved Klinsmann's reaction/actions/dramatics during all the games.

If you saw what he did on the sidelines, that is pretty much what i was doing in the living room.....complete with naughty words. I hope he stays with the DFB.

WEll, in ESPN they were still speculating about Klinsi coaching the American team. They said that he is living soo close!! Apparently they did not hear that he denied the job of coaching the US!

We simply beat the odds! I reckon, during the first Italy-Germany game 100 days before the World Cup, we were a mess, but after that, we started picking up pace and played great football throughout the tournament. We can go out with our heads up high, I'm sure the fans will appreciate all the effort made. It's sad, but we can be proud of this work and use it as a base to get even better. And for the record: I hope Klinsmann stays and continues his work! We bitterly need stability in the team's trainer staff, and if he continues, we will keep a very stable structure for the future, which is also what helped Germany obtain victories in the past.

Danke für die schönen Momente und den schönen Fußball, Nationalmannschaft. Jetzt Platz Drei und in zwei Jahren zum EM-Sieg!  bigthumbsup

Nice post Banco, Germany really deserve that a good coach like Klinsmann remain to the national team. They'll do great with him. Man we are talking of semifinals and the 1st four teams in the world, if it's not an achievement this!!!
The sports are sometimes a little unjust because just one wins, but it have not to cancel that a lot of teams did their best.
Bravo Klinsmann, very correct and nice man.

Ciao

Actuall no, I do give a wet crap about #3 or #4.

This game is a bad joke, an insult to all the fans of the teams that didn't make it to the finals, period! List both teams as # 3 and that's it!

I couldn't care less about 3 or 4...you'll find soon enough that Germany best players will not be playing anyway...I won't watch it on TV.

btw. THAT has been my opinion for years, if not decades, I always thought that match is a disgrace and as useless as it gets!

Yes he is, probably even more so than most of us actually think he is, still I don't think he'll do it again.

You see, you try to re-instate the nasty German, but you just don't cut it any more. You're all far too sweet. We've seen it throughout the World Cup. Henceforth, all Germans will be known for their doe-eyed kindness, their utterly unthreatening soft-hearted disposition, their caring-sharing general loveliness.

Would you like a nice cup of tea, oh new friend to the world?

Afraid not, pal. You see, I was in Gelsenkirchen and Bochum on Saturday night, and had to endure the horrible sight of 80,000 Engerlaenders, dressed up like hooligans, some of them *coughcough* had even shaved their heads to look threatening...MUAHAHAHA..they were all sitting around and bawling like little kids, trying to console each other with whiney voices.

Andreas, Andreas. I can see how you so desperately want us to share in your newfound milk of human kindness. Alas, we cannot even begin to match you in your general equability and even-tempered approach to the world. We have tried, and generally we have indeed learnt from the best over the past few weeks, but alas, no matter how we try, we cannot begin to approach the levels of gentility that you now demonstrate to the world. I can only stand on in awe as you attempt to spread the general loveliness, even to us nasty English. I would expect nothing less from a nation that has become a true beacon of humanity over the last weeks, a nation that has become a garden in a bitter and violent world.

No, no, I can't accept your kind words no matter how well-intentioned. We English, we British cannot hope to match you in this area. You are indeed the softest, most loveable people on the planet. So gentle, so adorable that a new Eden can be said to have been created in the heart of Europe, an oasis of cuddliness far removed from the vicious, violent nature of those of us not sufficiently blessed to be part of it. You Germans; one just wants to pat you on the head and give you all a big hug.
