Sam Allardyce is out as England manager after only 67 days. The Daily Telepgraph’s undercover expose and 10-month investigation finds English football embroiled in one of the biggest scandals in years. The big question now turns to who will replace Big Sam? In England, the polls and voting has already started and the man being mentioned once again as a potential successor is Jurgen Klinsmann! Is he the right man for the job? Would England really hire a German coach? Would the USMNT fight to keep him should there be interest? Join the conversation. Get stuck in.
After they dismissed German hero Jurgen Klinsmann earlier this season, Bayern Munich today announced Dutchman Louis Van Gaal as their manager. This puts the big guy back on the big stage. Great appointment.
Van Gaal is an ambitious man who has achieved much success in his homeland. His Ajax team dominated Dutch football in the 1990’s. They won the Eredivisie 3 times. They also won the UEFA Cup and the Champions League. His team was a who’s who in Dutch football. Edgar Davids. Patrick Kluivert. Marc Overmars. Edwin van der Sar. Brothers Frank and Ronald De Boer. They were simply delicious.
What is going on at Spurs? Their situation is dire. Here is a team that was hoping to snatch that fourth place Champions League spot and instead they are fighting for their Premiership lives. You think that’s melodramatic this time of season? Just ask the 1993 Nottingham Forest team everyone said were too good to go down!
