Not really. He is an awful coach.
0-0 in Mexico sounds like a good result, though.
I will give Klinsmann one thing as a coach: he seems to be inspirational. He's a naturally positive man and his outlook and belief inevitably infect his players.
ps It's nice to see that former USA coach Bob Bradley has Egypt 3-0 in World Cup qualifying, despite Egypt's turmoil and despite being forced to play in empty stadiums at home.
After last nights performance, I may have to chance the title of the thread. Seriously, I HATE hoofing the ball after passing back 5 times.
Then they should be diving any day now
Regardless, I don't think I've seen a better penalty taker - case in point his one against Malta last night. The man is cool as a cucumber. In fact, has he ever missed one in a match?
With his bipolar behavior, he'll fall in a depression for a few month the first time he misses.
Might be geoblocked, but worth a try.
First half between Germany and Kazakhstan.
Minutes 20 to 32 are my recommendation.

Germany are a really talented team. I read that they played without a striker the last two matches. That's interesting for any team not named Barca or Spain. It also make sense. After watched Mario Gomez choke in the Champions League final against Chelsea, I have a feeling some stages are too big for him.
Europe is looking interesting. France looked very sporty against Spain. Some of their passing was exquisite. Before he was sent off, young Pogba looked like a star.
Italy have something cooking. And no stage is too big for Balotelli, who apparently finds inspiration in wearing the national colors.
Playing without striker is mostly useful against very defensive teams.
I was mostly impressed, because the team didn't have very long to train this very much. It is mostly pure skill that leads to these combinations.
Wasn't a very nice night either, with slight frost.
Holy crap Chris Samba is terrible... Just GAVE two goals to Fulham...
Dimitar Berbatov is one of my favorite players to watch. He finds time when there is no time, space where there is no space. When the ball is at his feet, the rules that govern the universe seemingly cease to exist.
Writing about today's match, the Telegraph captured some of his spirit.
Its true, he is one of my favorite strikers. I loved how poorly he was treated at United and how the fans called him "lazy". The touch he had when he brought that cross from over his shoulder and one touched it over the defender the other way was insane.
Not a QPR fan, just a EPL fan. I support Liverpool, but love watching everyone, who ever is playing.
I also really like Bryan Ruiz, and Schwarzer had an amazing save as well.
one of the many reasons that I dislike this Man U. is Ferguson's dour pragmatism and that he tried to fit Berba with feet of clay. He's as cool as fuck and a bit of an artist with the pencil too. Do a search for his drawings - lots of talent.
When i moved to my current location, FoxSoccer was the only game in town. I had always watched the Bundesliga but now had to learn my way around the EPL. I "settled" on Tottenham due to Berbatov. Liked how he moved and his control. Really pissed me off that he moved to Man-how-I-hate-them U-freaking-nited. He deserved the money though.
I swear Fergie buys players just to keep others from having them!!!!
Bayern looked the part yesterday. But Juve are still within reach. A goal in Turin and things will get very interesting.
Vidal and Lichtsteiner are both suspended. Their biggest threat.
Dortmund were rather bad today.
Dortmund nearly botched it. Two goals in injury time...
Balotelli is back! A 3 game ban...
What a finish to the Malaga game. Typical Europe officiating, two offside goals given. Dortmund were offside twice on the final goal, no whistle. It balanced out. But UEFA does a terrible job of finding officials.
A colossally stupid red card by Arbeloa. He's vital to Madrid. I assume it's just a one match ban?
