Der Lothar



The man to rescue Bulgarian football? thoughts

judging from the stuff I read, if he could install an iron discipline into the squad then it might work wonders. Just don't know if he's the type though judging by his private life


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Question bulgarian journalist to Lothar :
Great players rarely become good managers, do you agree that you confirm this
it was very wild press conference

Hahaha...too funny. He could have answered, "But I wasn't a great player."

Yeah, I am just waiting for the news that Lothar ditches his current wife/girlfriend for some Bulgarian model. He *does* like to "get into" the local culture. <smirk>

lol... dä Loddar - having scored with numerous hot chicks, he'd be a role model for our players. Totally confident about the new "iron discipline" in the team.

VENI. VIDI. VICI.

I have some hopes with him.

I was in Belgrade last week and all my local friends (Zvezda and Partzian fans alike) told he is horrid. I live in Budapest and I know what he did here

Still, a NT coach doesn't have to be a master tactician or anything. You just need to manage egos and make them work together. That said, a German, any German is already respected in Bulgaria by default. Lothar, the legend he is, has an additional weight in the eyes of all thsi Nt players in the NT.

So it MIGHT work out.

I have to say the biggest problem for our NT is the quality of the players. We are simply not good enough and no coach on earth can change this. Our D is simply bad! Our midfield is average. Our attack could be good, but with lots of IFs.

Reaching any tournament finals with that squad is a huge over-achievement for any coach.

I would agree with that point...after all, a German can end up picking his nose and still be counted as cool.

hehe...

yup, pretty much still here, doing my M.Sc. degree in Sociology and Corporate Development. However, I'm now in Cologne. Much much better than Konstanz =)... although I miss my years with many good friends that are not around me anymore =( well... yeah =)

Btw, a very good friend of mine (bulgarian) is now in Budapest, doing Masters in European Law at the german Andrassy University. Maybe you could exchange contacts?

btw, I might be coming to Budapest some time in spring to visit the dude, so we can go for a coffe or sth

WTH maybe thats not what you meant, but it just sounded wrong .

Anyway cant wait to see Matheus in action. We already ****ed up too much and it may be too late, but I just hope he gives the young more chance and we build for the future. Its a step up no doubt.
