Klinsmann.

He's decided not to extend his contract.

Yeah, first John Hartson retires and now this. Irish qualification is as good as sealed.

Indeed, the Swiss are not in their group...

I was going to say something like "Good luck against the Portuguese/ Ukrainians/ Dutch/ Spanish, you fucking fucks" until I realised that Switzerland are hosting the thing.

Klinsi is obviously well aware that the magic he worked was a short-term affair, and that now is a great time to run for the hills while his reputation is still high. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back in the job in, say, a decade's time, though.

That's a canny move: he's always known how to quit while he's winning.

He did a very good job with a limited team. Although they rode their luck, Germany were about the only team at this World Cup that played to their full potential. Without the momentum of being the host country, things could only go downhill. Klinsi's well off out of it.

Word is that Löw is a shoo-in as successor, and that's fair enough, but I wonder if he's got the force of character to stand up to Beckenbauer, Hoeness and co. when things get rough during the qualifiers.

Really, there's only one man who could do the job as I'd like to see it done:

It must be a real shame for the Germans, I thought he really turned the job around and stopped getting so much stick.

The German team seemed to have a great spirit at the WC and I had put alot of that down to Jurgen.

Matthäus' chances of getting the Germany job are as good as Ron Greenwood's chances of getting the England job again.

In the worst case Matthias Sammer, who has held the yet undefined job of "sports director" at the German FA for some months, will be Germany's new manager. However, Klinsmann's former assistant Jogi Löw (who apparently was the one who thought up line-ups, team tactics etc.) is widely expected to be the future manager, assisted by current U21 coach Dieter Eilts. Eilts has got a similar footballing philosophy and he was recommended as a future assistant by Klinsmann, when, about a month ago, he was purely speculating about possible successors in a newspaper interview.

Today's most original reason why Klinsmann is leaving can be found in the Kölner Express. According to the tabloid Klinsi has quit because he and his family are worried about the unhealthy amount of cosmic radiation that passengers are subjected to when they commute from California to Germany.

Where's the headquarters of the US Association? I'm guessing it's on the East Coast, so he'd still be doing a fair commute.
