I've already seen an article linking him with the club, but I want your opinions, here is what I know:

He has been able to make his team good in only 2 years. He plays a very open and attacking game that is pleasing to watch.. much more so than our team if you take the whole year into account. His players respect him, and it appears he is close to his players. He seems to maximize talent. Finally, and perhaps even more imporantly, the team seems very good technically. I was impressed with leverkusen since the beginning of the year.. of course, I didn't know they would be THIS good.

Guys, this is not an ordinary german team. I don't think they will sit back and defend like fools the way that munich did. This guy is a dynamic coach.. he can adapt to situations as needed...

Its already clear the team will be broken up after then end of the year, and If Leverkusen win, then its even more likely that he could move considering his job 'finished'.

The only question is.. will gaspart get him? My only hope is that leverkusen win the CL.. and that there will be a public cry for topmoller.. and gaspart will have to get him only based on politics.

What was the difference between leverkusen and our team?

they didn't get scared after the first goal.

Why do you want just him??

Yes a good question Why do you want just him

why not the Chievo coach or Sven Göran Eriksson or any other top coach.

I want the Chievo coach more and more beacuse a coach who can do so much things with so poor resources must be a great coach

dont you all agree on that??

I want topmoller because of his recent success in european competition.. neither of the above have come close to that.
I want a proven commodity. We are too big a club to need to take chances.

The one's you have mentioned are good coaches, but neither have done as much as topmoller.

Pretty simple really.

I was thinking of him too. He is the most attacking coach I ever seen, and that includes Cruyff. Just unbelievable, tonight, 5 minutes from the final whistle, leverkusen had 10 players inside Manchester half. Even Cruyff was more cautius in Europe. He prefers finesse over muscle, and this leverkussen side is fun to watch.The only porblem would be the language, as he doesn't speak Spanish. But knowing the language of football is far more important, isn't it?

I agree i agree on that i am sure he can be a good coach but the fact is a coach who can do much with less is a better coach in my eyes than a coach who can rely on top players in every club he sign up to.

And i am not sure if Barcelona have the defence with that skill like he have in the club he coach now. It also need good passing skills and after some dreadful games there Barcelona players do a poor passing game i have my doubts.

bayer played very well yesterday, he didn't get scared after manchester goal, maybe because then the 2nd leg is at leverkusen, but he took a team with players that i didn't know and put it first of bundesleague, at semifinals and i think they still can win the cup. i have hear too that barça want him, as other coach, but is the desition of rexach.

I like the idea of a german coach at Barca at the moment. He might be able to straighten out our defence, while playing attractive and attacking football. Besides that he might take ze roberto with him.

Does anybody know if this Toppmoller played at the highest level himself? I only want a coach with own soccer experience, not some wiseguys who learned it all from reading alot of books or playing alot of Playstation games!

I have to say, I am also extremely surprised of what Leverkussen is capable off...He must be a good coach if he can manage to play football like that with a team like Leverkussen. However, I think it will be a gamble, because I don't know how he can handle strong personalities like Rivaldo or Kluivert...
Leverkussen doesn't exactly has those personality prima donna's, right? He would be a good choice, if he would get the time to build something new...that is without Rivaldo and Kluivert... I just hope he will bring Zé Roberto and Lúcio with him when he comes!

Toppi played 204 BuLi matches (108 goals) for Kaiserslautern and he played for Germany three times (1 goal). He was one of the better strikers in the mid seventies and seemed to be very promising but he had a car accident with his Ferrari and after that his career in the german NT was over before it really begun. He was a skilled player and proud of it. Thats why he likes attacking football. Some years ago he said "If I had been a calf biter (in Germany a player with less skills who plays very physical is called a "calf biter") like Berti Vogts I would have burned my football boots."

Toppi would be an ideal solution. But i doubt he would want to quite Bayer for any other club at the moment... the fact that so many players leave at the end of the season IMO makes it even unlikelier he'll leave becuase i think he likes the challenge to build something new. :)

what could be a bigger challenge than getting barc,a to play its best?

I think the one reason that he may not come is because of the political nature of the club at the moment, the unstability in management. Our only hope is that there is public outcry for him, because it appears that gaspart only does what is politically correct.

As for lucio, I can see why so many teams want him. Not exactly your typical defender.. in sooo many ways.

The reason I like topmoller is because WE WONT have to make several major signings.. I think he can get the best out of our squad.

I don`t think Gaspart will sign a manager without La Liga experience. Toppi is good without a doubt. But one thing scares me: he`s German. I don`t think he will treat with Barça like it`s needed. Please, take me right. I`m not a nationalist or something, but I think not every coach in the world can coach Barça not only with his brain, but with his heart too.


Matte, about Chievo coach. We had a great discussion about hin here around 6 month ago. J.Saviola was a thread starter - you can find that thread and read the points we`ve droped. There was droped very good points. Pleae, don`t be lazy and find that topic. You`ll see that the idea of signing Chievo coach (Del Negri?) isn`t new and good at all. :)

Topmuller is a great coach . He turned Bayer Leverkusen into an excellent team . I don't think he will leave Leverkusen . The most important thing is to get a world class coach . Enough we have saw from Sera Ferer and Rexach . Barca certainly will need a whole revamp next season .
FORZA BARCA FOREVER.

Fear for Daum

I heard that Daum the old druggie will coach Parma next season lets hope he never clamp into the Barcelona office and be the coach here.

That would be a disaster in my eyes.
Yes he is good but once a drug abuse always a drug abuse in my eyes.

He can consume as much drugs as he wants as long as Barca wins. I wouldn't f*cking care in that case.
Daum would be one of the very best decisions. :) :star:

Daum are welcome to blow in Barcelona, if Barça will win something. :D



Matte, the main idea about Chievo was:

1. He is italian coach, pretty defensive, so cules will never gonna like his style.

2. Why Chievo plays so good? Del Negri brought a great organisation of play and a motivation of the players. But he won`t do that in Barcelona. He don`t work with stars now. But he will have to do that in Barça. You don`t have to motivate Chievo`s players: each of them want to show his skills to the whole Italy to continue his career in a bigger club with a bigger contract. Barça players already reached the both, and it`s not fact Del Negri will motivate them by another way (glory?) - our primadonnas are so lazy! :eek:

3. Our coach have to have a good La Liga experience and to be a proven specialist. Other way our players won`t respect the guy.
