    German coaches/Managers- Why are they so popular ?

    Why is there a sudden influx of football people from Germany . I mean , Tuchel struck gold first time out, but Klopp took 4 years with Liverpool before he won anything at all. Now we’ve got another one who’s got a job around the corner from the Trafford Centre. Are they really any better ? They’ve all spent milllions, but none of them have managed teams like Bayern Munich, have they ? I could manage Liverpool or Chelsea. You shouldn’t have to tell those players anything. In fact , they should be telling you !! Only Bayern are any good over there, and they’ll probably win the Bundesliga again this year. Give me Sean Dyche any day of the week.

    I think they are popular because of how well Herr Klopp has done and now clubs are looking for Kloppelgangers.

    It’s simple really , they are brilliant organisers like everything German it’s methodical , quality and engineered well.

    When you apply that to football it’s machine like , look at their national teams over many years they didn’t always have the best players but boy could they play.

    If Dyche could adapt his style and ability he wouldn’t be at Burnley - if you look at his attributes some are similar , great man motivator , rigid defensively, tried and tested methods.

    If he could add into the that the ability to change shape - formation and act - react to opposing teams many clubs would want him- to be fair to Dyche we have seen glimpses of open flowing football so we know he can do that bit.

    Perhaps it's because the majority of Krauts are truly crackers..?

    They won't help you to kill yourself if you are unvaccinated outwood.

    I dont really get it. I was under the impression that the Bunsleague was some what similar standard to the Scottish Premiership.
    Now Rangnick would have been in his prime when Ferguson and Wenger where dominating Europe, along with Spain and Italy. I dont remember Rangnicks's teams poosing much of a threat back then... or any German teams bar the odd year Bayern got to the quarter finals.
    I dont remember the German national team playing football using the gegenpressing method, and they still do not play this way.
    It all seems a load of old *******s to me, Klops successful and the trend is to employ German managers.
