Due to the fact that Sven Goran Eriksson is leaving the England Manager's job after the World Cup in 2006, after his amicable agreement with the powers that be at the English F.A, I'm incensed that the whole tournament has now been put in jeopardy by these fools. The whole episode has been unsavoury from start to finish, and must hinder our chances of winning the Cup. How can Eriksson now look our players in the eye and expect any sort of respect from them, after criticising them in public? How can we as fans hope that Eriksson will be able to inspire them to a victory? It is not possible.
The FA should have the balls to remove Eriksson NOW before the World Cup, and get in a new man for the job. The whole situation has been a massive cop out from start to finish by the F.A. The most recent activity being published in the media by the FA now shows them to be eagerly searching for the next England manager - they claim that they want to have that decided before the World Cup. They want to be sure that they've got the right man. Excuse me Mr Barwick of the FA, but it seems that for the last 3 weeks when the crap was flying, you were telling us all that you already have the right man.
You tell us that Sven is the man to lead us to World Cup glory. If he's the right man now, why then is he going immediately after the World Cup? The FA have him on contract for another 2 years after that, so why not keep him on? The FA were also were also telling us that they wanted whole sorry mess cleared up quickly, so that they can all get on with the most important thing - World Cup preparations, without any distractions. If that's so why not wait until after the cup? Seems to me that when they decide on a new manager, there will be the same media circus all over again. No distractions.don't make me laugh.
England have got a great chance of winning the World Cup this time, and I for one do not want to watch us go out with a whimper in the Quarter finals devoid of ideas, because of an incompetant, overpaid puppet as manager. Sven Goran Eriksson Out? - Fine by Me. .
