Lothar Matthäus has announced that nobody has approached him yet, and that he has an interesting job in any case.

Daum has said he won't move from Fenerbahce (plus, of course, Hoeness and his slimy pals wouldn't accept him).

Even Felix Magath says tha he is a club coach, not a national coach, and intends remaining one for the next few years.

Oliver Bierhoff suggests his old manager, Alberto Zaccheroni.

Abedipoulos,

That's the gaulois equivalent of Kitchen Stadium in the background of that cover.

Otto is going to be retained as Greece teamchef, they liked his spanakopitas so much back home they're out in the street celebrating.

All the media are screaming for Otto Rehhagel now, of course. He had that ambition years ago, but in 1998, the Bayern mafia insisted on Ribbeck. It would be sweet revenge for Rehhagel, who was kicked out by Bayern because he didn't fit in their Hollywood world.

Beckenbauer (he heads the finding team) still has a soft spot for Matthäus, but I hope he won't be able to pull that off. Today's media report that Wenger has been approached. What's complicating things is that there is a power struggle within the German FA. Chair Maier-Vorfelder will get a challenger in the October election and might step down even earlier (I doubt that, he's too much of an experienced politician). The Bundestrainer question is closely connected to the FA question. It would be very entertaining if Bayern didn't play that big a role in it all.

So do you reckon Otto would take the job? On the one hand, it's highly unlikely he could repeat the feat with Greece, so he could quit while he's ahead, but on the other hand, being Bundestrainer is as thankless a task as being England manager.

If Rehhagel doesn't take it, who's left? Loddar? Heaven help you. I notice Bernd Stange's resigned from Iraq, but he can't be more than a rank outsider.

What's Horst Köppel up to these days?

1. Toppmöller
2. Pagelsdorf

Both have made magic with limited sides. What's Wolfgang Wolf up to these days?

Horst Köppel used to be on the Dortmund coaching staff (youth team). Don't know if that's still the case.

It's a strange do when the Germans, the Germans for Christ's sake, can't find anyone willing or good enough to manage their national team leading up to a home World Cup. I can understand why so many are turning it down (Mayer-Vorfelder and Beckenbauer breathing down their necks is reason enough to start with), but you'd think there'd be one German with enough mettle to say, "I can do the job, but I'm fucked if anyone's going to interfere with me. I'll do my best, but we're shit, so don't expect us to win it."

It isn't just Mayer-Vorfelder and Beckenbauer and his Bayern mafia that can make a Bundestrainer's life a misery, but also the boulevard press. The last one to get an easy ride was the untouchable Helmut Schön.

It's true what you say about the press, G-Man, which makes it very similar to the England job. Having said that, I think Rudi Völler, being the nice guy and football legend that he is, got a very easy ride of it compared to others.

Whoever takes the job is going to have to be either a miracle-worker, unbelievably thick-skinned, or mad.
