It had better not as I'm going to the two games.. which in all probability guarantees two defeats.

Do you want to add a year to that?

Yeah, looks like they shat it. They can still bin him in June when they lose to Qatar.

Tricky. Just two matches left, and they're both crucial. But the home match against Iran is just 2.5 months away. If they were going to sack him and rebuild, they should have done it much earlier in the cycle.

I reckon he stays for the remainder of qualifying.

Should have got rid of him when I told them to. I'm open to offers if the kfa want to put me in charge of hiring and firing

In the next few hours. National team has gone backwards under Stielike.

What would be the point of waiting until the end of qualifying? (other than human decency and possibly contract release clauses.)

They're not building for the future, they're trying to qualify. If they see qualification at all in danger they should get rid of him as soon as possible. Critically, in this modern world of ours, it depends what the players think. If the dressing room has lost confidence in him, like with Ranieri at Leicester, then the KFA really have no other option. Korea's national team faces the same challenges a lot of national teams do. Over-paid, over-played players with agents and jetlag who need a good excuse to get out of bed in the morning. National team manager isn't about team-selection, tactics or building the infrastructure anymore, it's about motivating millionaires to run around.

Technical committee meeting tomorrow, media reports suggesting that he'll get the boot then and his recently appointed assistant Jung Hae-sung (Hiddink's mate, former Bucheon/Jeju and Jeonnam manager) will take charge on an interim basis until a permanent appointment is made. I suppose that comes from Jung's appointment as assistant to Stielike having been made by the technical committee back in April rather than at Stielike's behest.

Appointing Jung would seem like a huge gamble. He hasn't even managed at ACL level let alone international has he?

It might not be pretty but don't you just go for maybe Choi kang hee for the last two qualifiers. You need to best most experienced domestic man for the job now I think. Far from a perfect candidate but about the safest pair of hands in Korea.

I did wonder whether Choi Yong-soo would be a possibility, won the league and FA Cup with FC Seoul and also ACL runners up, conveniently just been fired by Jiangsu so readily available to take the job. Not exactly a stellar resume though as it started well at Seoul then kind of petered out, didn't really seem to get going at all in China and he's barely lasted a year there.

I don't foresee whoever manages the team in the next two qualifiers (and potentially playoffs) being in charge next summer in Russia, it'll be a domestic option now with the 'carrot' to a big name foreigner of guaranteed World Cup participation. All change again next June though when that manager's short term contract expires.

I'd agree with going for Choi Kang-hee if it was definitely for two qualifiers, but there's a decent chance they might find themselves in the playoffs if they can't take care of Uzbekistan in the last game and so it would go on for another two games in October and maybe another two in November.

What Korea needs is the return of the King.
