Klinsmann for England

Though understandably disappointed (or 'gutted' as we football aficionados put it) that Steve Bruce has left his beloved Birmingham to manage Wigan, my good friend Jim Smith is no doubt consoled that his burgeoning prophetic powers regarding the unemployed and unlamented Steve McClaren's successor in the England mantle are very much in tact. Indeed his favoured candidate, Jurgen Klinsmann, is 16-1 at Ladbroke's and has been backed by luminaries of no less a stature than Motty and Franz Beckenbauer. Mind you, the Socceroos down under have other ideas. Remember though, just in case the FA decide to develop a special relationship with the German, you read it first here. [Picture: almost certainly Klin, unless Jim has been cutting back on the pasties]
