    It is tempting to go for the winning coach & Italy were unquestionably very well drilled, so Lippi is a fair shout.

    Hiddink was impressive as ever, but rather blotted his copy-book with the selection of the custodian for the final group game. Scolari's Portugal were hard to beat, but played with a crippling lack of ambition. Pekerman made some appallingly negative changes in Argentina's QF & his team was rightly punished.

    For mine tho, it's the dive bomber himself, Herr Klinsmann. Germany played with a joy that one doesn't immediately associate with the great but boringly, ruthless efficient German teams of yore. I know they reached the final last time, but with knock-out games v Paraguay, the US & South Korea they jolly well should have. I rememeber watching Ballack & thinking "you're too good for this mob, son"; this time, however the younger Germans have raised thier game to his standards. In Lahm, Frings, Schweinsteiger (sp?) & Podolski they have a core of talented young players who will all be closer to their peak in 4 years. He may've vacated, but Jurgen's left a golden inheritence.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Now watch them employ Toppmöller and leave Lahm with standing orders never to move further than his own penalty area.

    Hiddink and Klinnsman for me. Pekerman ruined it for his team, by making defensive changes as Brumby pointed out, I thought Scolari managed pretty well actually, just beaten by a better team on the day.

    LOL.

    Using Ronaldo as a lone centre forward when chasing the game against 10 men. Genius.

    Repeating the dose in the next game when it failed spectacularly. Give the man the noble prize for science

    Hahaha, Unless it's sports science you're talking about, I'm not sure why you would want to. I'd definitely give him a star for creativity though...:P

    Definitely Klinsmann.

    I don't think anyone who even considered Zeljko Kalac as fit to grace the World's greatest statge is worth mentioning...

    Klinsmann and Hiddink, head and shoulders above the pack. Klinsmann first though, because of the Kalac blunder.
