I think the greedy fucker Sven is holding out for more cash. I don't rate him and think it's a bad move bringing him in


Really?  
Why don't you rate him when he is it the only man to win the double in 3 countries? 

Or the most successful England manager we have had in the last 40 years.

Also can you please tell me why he is a greedy fucker.


Thanks


I don't rate him because the 'most successful England manager for 40 years' never got us past a quaterfinal in any major competition - especially considering he had some great players to work with.

Both Venables and Robson got us closer to winning something than he ever did.

And he is a greedy fucker because he has been caught with fake Sheikhs trying to get his next big payday while still in the England job.

Good luck to Man City - I hazard a guess he won't be that successful

Would you turn down the opportunity to hear what somebody else has to say or would you demand they ask your bosses permission first?

As much as I hope he fails miserably, I think Ci-thai have done themselves a good deal here. Anyone who thinks that Eriksson isn't a first class manager, is quite frankly a fool.

Venables got us to a semi final because we were playing at home.  We were awful against Swizerland, Scotland and Spain and the only reason that tournament is held in high regard by England fans is the Holland game and Gazza's goal against the Scots.  We were poor for the most of that tournament.

As for Robson did you actually ever watch Mexico 86 or Italy 90.  Poor performances against Morocco and Portugal saw us looking down the barrel a few injuries later and we stumbled onto a new formation which saw us beat the mighty Poles before dispatching the super Paraguay in the 2nd round.  Bascially the first time we met a decent side we went out, valiantly as always but still out we went.
Italy we were just as poor don't you remember being 2-0 down to Cameroon for fucks sake.

Ooooooh, I like that, that might catch on!

As regards Sven, I'm dismayed at the amount of people who follow the Tabloid journo view of football. Sven was never a plank, his style of football may be a tad unimaginative at times with England, but as a Club manager, his ability was never in doubt. I think he's a fantastic capture for Citeh.

Too right Bob, agree with all you said there.

As regards our financial situation, it will be interesting to see what develops, we have a serious debt there and I would be interested to see does he plan on paying it off or what the deal is. As regards Eastlands, I'm not sure he needs to buy the ground, our lease is pretty minimal and while it would be nice to own it outright, I think its something that can be looked into further down the line.



I was under the impression that as most of the 'debt' was owed to Wardle and Makin, Ol' Blue Eyes would wipe out that debt by buying their shares.

Good point, if I recall correctly tehy do hold a large chunk of it, but by no means all of it. Either way, that cheers me up a little.

Your av scares me a bit.

I think the rest of the debt is an extremely long-term loan to a US bank based on season ticket sales, not sure about the amounts though.

Yea, see thats the bit that scares me, Leeds also tied in their season ticket sales to their debt, its not ideal, but at least its not all that way.

There's no reason to be scared, mate. It's not as if we've got a reputation for ballsing things up now is it.
I'm pretty certain it's all going to be to sunshine and thai-brides for City fans from here on in.


Maybe...

Shut it baldy!

EDIT : Whatever people say about Venables and Robson the fact it they got further than Eriksson ever did.

But this is going over old ground - the fact Eriksson only took four forwards (including Walcott + semi fit Owen/ Rooney) to the World Cup says it all. A breathtakingly stupid move that cost us dear.

He was mediocre when it came to the biggest matches and that is borne out by his results in the three major tournaments. You can't argue with the final result I'm afraid

I'll give you the fact that he took the wrong forwards, but in each tournament England went as far as they deserved. They werent one of the best 4 teams in any of the tournaments, so going out in the quarter finals was fair in my opinion. Of course, I would have rather we went further.

Also with this 4 forward thing who would you of wanted to be included?  Defoe?    Give me a break. He gambled on Owen staying fit and got unlucky.

Bobby Robson getting us to the Semis of the WC is more of an achievement IMO.
People do go over the top slagging Sven off though, he's an odd character granted but he was an unlucky England Manager only just missing out on a couple of semi-finals himself.

Johnson's quality, like Barton but without  the Jekyll/Hyde personality and more creative.
Other than that, yeah, we need a fair few players, especially wingers, as I'm not sure we've got any at the moment.

I thought Michael Johnsons best discipline was 200m, then 400?

Also, I work with a Bury fan who says that Kasper is a good keeper with LOTS of potential so try and keep hold of an assett now you bitters!

Yeah, I live in Bury and he was very popular here, and also in Falkirk, where he spent last year on loan. It all depends on whether he'll be happy waiting for his chance at City.
