Sham, you’d be happy with Klinsmann managing Ireland from California via Zoom like he did with Korea? Not quite the ‘must live in Ireland’ stipulation the FAI have

To be fair, he was sacked 2 games in the final round of qualifiers with the US in 2016 with 8 left to go. 2 losses against eventual group winners Mexico and runners up Costa Rica. Id have backed him to have turned it around and done a better job than Bruce Arena did when he came in. They lost out on the final day with a loss to Trindad and Tobago. A win would have seen them qualify.

As for South Korea, he took charge of 17 games and W9 D5 L3. Despite the comments from their FA, you cant say it was a terrible stint but more so they have higher standards and werent impressed with the Martin O'Neill esque approach he took.

Hes not what we're looking for though and I wouldn't have him myself, might as well just get Mick back for a 3rd stint because thats the type of effort you'd get from Klinsmann these days going by the Asian Cup.
[/QUOTE]

It was a terrible stint. The fact they went nearly a year unbeaten papers over the cracks of an awfully dysfunctional team that were playing well below its abilities. Most the wins came against Asian opposition; in Asia, after the top dozen teams or so, the quality drops off rapidly to the standard of Gibraltar, Andorra and Liechtenstein. I watched most their games at the Asian Cup. They could barely muster a shot on target against tougher opposition and needed injury-time goals to bail them out against Jordan (first time round), Saudi and Australia. Not since Brazil at the 2014 World Cup have I seen a team play so badly and reach the semi-final. Like Brazil back then, they were ultimately pulled apart with ease.

Klinsmann is a purely vibes coach. In his shambolic spell at Bayern, the players had to organise their own tactical meetings because he was giving them no instructions. A big sticking point in his stints as Germany and Korea coach was his continuing to live in California. No reason to think he wouldn't do the same thing if he was in charge of us. I'd have Big Sam, Lennon, Hughton, Neil bloody Warnock before I'd have this charlatan as Ireland coach.

I dont think I've heard a more damning statement from a managerial sacking than Klinsmann with South Korea.

"The KFA has decided to change the national head coach following a comprehensive review," KFA president Chung Mong-gyu said, removing the German after just under a year in charge. 

"Klinsmann has failed to display managerial capability and leadership expected of a national head coach in areas ranging from tactics, personnel management to work attitude and others required to bring about competitiveness to the team," Korea Football Association president Chung Mong-gyu said.

"Klinsmann's attitude and competitiveness as head coach has fallen short of people's expectations and it was agreed that this would not be improved going forward, so we have decided to change leadership ahead of 2026 World Cup qualifying games."


Sounds like a perfect match for the FAI.

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

Löw was his assistant manager and the brains behind Germany's post 2004 success.

He did fairly well with USA for the first half of his reign, but was was almost 10 years ago. His record hasn't been good since The 2014 World Cup. Sacked by USA for failing to qualify for The 2018 World Cup, had a controversial spell at Hertha, and then a terrible stint with South Korea.

No thanks.
