Perhaps Low, though we all thought Klinsmann was great and look how he has done since then.

probably Low

Bilek is one of the worst ones I must say, I read at one point something like 95% of the Czechs wanted him sacked

What has Low won? I don't think because you have a good team means you are a good manager.

I think Trapattoni must be considered highly considering the Irish team are not that good and they have qualified. Also, his record of winning so many leagues and trophys with so many teams in different countries cannot be ignored.

We must rate Morten Olsen too. Denmark are very consistent and they too do not have fantastic players but they still finished higher that Portugal twice in a row.

The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scots as a joke, but the Scots haven't seen the joke yet.

A true Irishman has so much respect for the truth that he uses it only in emergencies.

Titles and history are of course important but in this case since we have different generations of coaches we would have a clear advantage in this sense for the older ones such as Trapattoni for example.

So the best way to analyse this is looking at the quality of the works and not necessarly results.
Guess many would choose Low because he was part of of a German staff that made a rebuilding of the NT. Germany are considered favourites today and regained its respect from the opponents thanks partly by Low and his quality work.

Morten Olsen is also to be mentioned since he has always managed to keep Denmark in a stable position.

I personally believe Cesare Prandelli is a good coach. He did quality jobs in the past and currently is managing to rebuild Italy in a good way. Too bad Italian football doesn´t conspire for a better development with its current extra field issues.

Low was the tactician, architect when he was Klinsmann's assistant.

Del Bosque is World champion and two times CL winner.

My top 3 would be him, Trapattoni and Advocaat.

I like Trapattoni and he is easily top 5 here but I wouldn't put him on top because his international record hasn't been as good as his club record. I guess you can say both Italy's eliminations at the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004 were sketchy/controversial but in two tournaments for Italy there was a 2nd round exit then a group stage exit.

Low really needs to win a title with Germany though to solidify his status

Blokhin did well with Ukraine in 2006, took them to the quarterfinals but you can say they had a very kind group (Spain, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia) and then took advantage of the fact they played Switzerland in the Round of 16

From my part Prandelli is an excellent coach as I mentioned in my post, certainly among the top ones.

Blanc, because he aims to keep the French NT racially equal and balanced

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I remeber when we played them in the qualifiers and they were criticizing him for his selection and tactics.

Bilic is not a good tactician, mostly a motivator but when he loses that he is average coach who plays players out of position. You can argue Croatia doesn't have a deep selection of players but still I would expect him to field a proper team, unlike playing guys like Eduardo on the wing once and now forcing Vida at RB

His stats with Croatia look good on paper, but even back when he first started most of the wins were tight, the two wins over England overshadowed how poorly Croatia played against lets say Macedonia during that qualifying cycle. Even at the Euros in 2008 Croatia was outplayed by Austria, but to their credit they showed their quality against Germany

You guys have a great team. Regarding the pool i understand it perfectly because Israel has a similar issue but you guys always manage to participate in major tournaments so Croatia has big merits on this one.

From what i remember in the games against Israel, were tight games especially in Israel where we had the chance to win but our defense isn´t really good.

Bilic is also known for his sometimes way to sincere interviews right?

If i am not mistaken Bilic took a base of the 2006 World Cup that was led by Kranjcar (Nico´s father i guess) and started introducing some players like Modric and and Eduardo.

Hajduk correct me if i am wrong.
