Bora Is Back?

No joke: The well-traveled Bora Milutinovic says he will coach Iraq's national team. With Iraq out of qualifying contention for South Africa next year, however, there's no chance for Bora, 64, to make a sixth World Cup appearance. Unless, of course, he jumps to another nation in the next 14 months.

His portfolio already includes Mexico (twice), Costa Rica, USA, Nigeria, China, Honduras and Jamaica -- not to mention five clubs, including the MetroStars.

What, Luxembourg, Malta and Borneo weren't in the market? Geez, this is starting to resemble the Ricky Henderson "please retire, you're just embarrassing yourself now" debacle of the late '90's.

[Bora on Bora in Ricky Henderson Mode]

"Bora knows how to make a nation great. Bora knows how to get a nation to the "next level". E'rybody loves some Bora. Why the negativity? Bora's been paid. Can't Bora just try to make the world a brighter place???"

Bora did a great job with my kid's U-8 team last fall.

It was odd, though... when he told the kids to go to goal, he yelled "Bora! Bora! Bora!"

Hey, remember Addlery? He's back, and talking smack.

Bora is missing CONMEBOL, UEFA, and OFC from his resume. But three out of six ain't bad.

Albeit smack that well...smacks of the truth.

I appreciate the sincerity of his comments but I would prefer for Addlery to concentrate on the football. Leave the smacktalking to the ownership, the coaches and fans. We just need him to concentrate on the futbol. I like the swagger but performance talks loud enough.

Yeah, Yeah, If he was MLS starting caliber he'd still be here.
