I am fully aware that I am late to the why-England-were-eliminated-party here, but as I've pored over the litany of explanations on the web, I've found that there is an unfair discrepancy of player blame vs. manager blame.

Sven-Goran Eriksson's Revolution at Notts County Was Short-Lived

Sven-Goran Eriksson sparked an apparent revolution at Notts County in July. With Tord Grip and mysterious financial backing, he set off to dazzle the Football League like one of his secretaries.

Can Sven-Goran Eriksson Bring Notts County To The Premier League?

Former England, Manchester City and Mexico manager Sven Goran-Eriksson did not become director of football at Notts County “for the money.”  Nor, apparently, did he go for the prestige or mild degree of difficulty.  Eriksson inherits a club that finished 19th in League Two last season, essentially the worst club in England that can be […]

Sven for the sack?

Just what the English Premier League needs, another ill-informed, tinkering owner. I'm certain that Manchester City's billionaire owner Thaksin Shinawatra is a reasonably intelligent man.
