Don't rule out Rehhagel just yet - aiatl's post above is misleading. Otto was already signed up until 2006 in any case with Greece, but has turned down a new contract until 2008. So far the only person who has said Rehhagel's staying is the head of the Greek Football Association, who is working merely on the assumption that Otto will see out his contract.

The man himself is on holiday in...Germany. According to frau imp, who has been following this in the German press the past few days, Rehhagel has always wanted this job, and would love to come back and take it just to stick one on the Bavarians who dumped him from Bayern a few years back. Also, there are moves afoot to kick out MV at the next DFB presidential elections in October, making the job more attractive and less prone to interference.

I'm reporting all this third hand, though, so if anyone on the ground can be bothered to come up with more accurate information then I'm all ears.

Correct. Right now I see a more than 50% chance it's going to be Rehhagel.

Oh joy.

Already the 2006 WC Final is looking like a game I'd be happy to miss.

No no no no. You don't understand. Rehhagel plays to the stengths of a team. If he becomes Bundestrainer, and finds only donkeys in defence but exciting attaxck-minded players, he'll design a tactic for that. He's not really a 1-0 merchant by nature.

To wit, the two results I always remember Otto for: his Kickers Offenbach beating Bayern 6-0 in 1974, and his Dortmund losing 12-0 to Mönchengladbach (a game that Book Author seems quite convinced wasn't fixed. But he would think that).

The Greek FA have now agreed they will let Rehhagel go, should he wish to become the new BUNDESTRAINER. Rehhagel himself has kept quiet.

Looks like the deal will be closed over the weekend.

While Rehhagel would be a good coach to get the best technically and tactically out of the rag bag array of misfits that Germany has available, the problem lies more with his preference for his players to subvert their outspoken tendencies and answer wholly and fully to him.

In their minds they still think they're superstars and that's not his bag as he learned at Bayern

That's why he'll play hard to get. And when he accepts the Germany job under loud protest, he'll be able to lay down the law.

A question I have from Dalliance's post - which of the Germans would view themselves as superstars and above Rehhagel's law and which would embrace their coach even if it meant subjecting their egos?

Well, Schweinsteiger may be the key attacking midfielder to build a new team around, but already he has an ego and a penchant for loudly proclaiming his talent that Stefan Effenberg would be proud of.

He'll take a bit of subduing.

He even looks like Effe, poor pigfucker.

Perhaps Wolfgang Magath is the guy to instil some humility into these Bayern prima donnas -- though I'd be hardpressed to take very seriously a man who calls himself Felix.

Jesus, the germans must be in deep shite if they are going to build a team around him. The wayward shooting he showed at Euro 2004 would even embarrass Okocha (open goal to Dalliance).

Which, if he shoots like Okocha, he will miss.

Meanwhile Otto Rehhagel has refused the offer on his table. Not sure whether he's serious. Might be negotiating tactics.
