Remember Ayu..'impermanent are all compounded things '...you might be the best now but the wheel will turn.. ;)
The English team are still struggling to become a cohesive unit.

Could you loan us Joachim Low ?

:D I don't know if he suits to the rough Englishmen. He is the ideal coach for the sensitive intellectuals in the German team. :tongue:
But maybe you could get Klinsmann?

Jurgen Klinsmann? Us Yanquis are very happy with him. I suspect he prefers the weather in California. If you've been to the UK, you'd understand.

That might be outweighed by his wanting to work in the original home of football Jikan....or not. ;)

Kidding aside, there's no question where in the world the finest football is played, and everyone knows it's not Los Angeles. And especially not Seattle. RCTID.

I'm delighted with the growth we've seen in the US men's team, especially under JK's direction.

The number of Americans playing for English teams is growing, which suggests that the general level of skill is improving..
I was pleased to see Clint Dempsey back at Fulham on a two month loan from Seattle Sounders..a very exciting player to watch.
