My point was simply to separate the Lahm book from any sort of analysis. Sensationalism in Germany does not sell, and is considered incredibly crass and disrespectful. Lahm got what he deserved. It does work both ways. He isn't a Buddha savior, and he isn't a proven coach in many respects that have been talked about endlessly. He also is high profile enough where he can affect change here that others would never even be allowed to even try. He is getting his chance and we'll see where it leads. As I've pointed out he has become much more rational, grounded in his proclamations recently, compared to all of the mob preach that we heard since the 2010 cup ended. That makes me feel better and more hopeful. He is trying to unify the youth Nats and senior team. Good. He has opened up more doors for training. Good. He is trying to get more players playing yearly, in multiple environs...good. Still question his understanding of our full pool but the Slovenia game made me feel a bit better there also. I think he rates the Mex league, and our guys there waaaaaaayyyyyyyy to highly compared to MLS, but that isn't that big of a deal...except for CB, where he wasted a ton of time, in the area that could really screw us come 2014. We'll see how he handles the Nats as we move forward, but I'm a show me guy, and his overall resume is not one that makes me blindly believe. I thought BB was a mistake, but he earned respect in quite a few areas. JK has to do the same. He has to earn it, and questioning is part of it. Germans in general, from family there, and business trips, love JK the image, as a coach...eh...we always had Loew...no worries. Earn it.
