S.O.S: Save Our Sven

S.O.S: Save Our Sven

This one goes out to not only City fans, but football fans everywhere. Save Our Sven...

He may not have been an unqualified success at international level, but at club record his team building skills and record are superb. His blend of Manchester City Academy graduates and young international signings holds much promise for City's future if allowed to continue it's development.

Not only that, but Sven's style and dignity at post match interviews have given football fans throughout the land respite from managers who selectively see incidents or refuse to talk to the media.

Many fans from City and other clubs have voiced their concerns repeatedly at the way top flight English Football is going and the current handling of Manchester City gives further cause for concern.

The least Svennis deserves is a chance to show us what he can achieve after a full close season in charge at MCFC.

If you agree, then please give your support to the Sven petition.

The Save Sven-Goran Eriksson from the sack Petition to Manchester City Football Club was created by Manchester City season ticket holders and written by Steven McInerney.

It's a tragic state of affairs all told. It's a state of the football nation issue now.

Some straw clutching positivity from Betting Zone: "Following confirmation from Thaksin Shinawatra's son that Sven Goran Eriksson will lead Manchester City on an end-of-season tour to Asia next month, Sky Bet have cut the Swede's odds of still being at the helm for the opening game of next season from 7/2 to 2/1 (4/11 not to be)....Sky Bet's Helen Jacob said: "With conflicting stories now emanating from Eastlands and overwhelming support from the fans, Sven's future does not look as bleak as it did earlier in the week."

If Thaksin thinks that any manager could break the domination of the biggest clubs in only a year, for only £30 odd million - he's insane. It takes time and investment. From where you were last season, this is a good position. And come on - surely doing the double over United is as good as getting into Europe... :P
30/04/2008 15:59:00
that is very true tloz we have done pretty well its just clearly obvious that sinawatr doesnt no the game that well at all. i would of saying we would be in europe at the end of next season but things are crossing trough my mind at the moment about this

Well, L of Z, some Blues have said they'd rather have lost to the rags and made Europe. Not me, it was priceless. But you are right, the foundations are there, the main hard work done. Sure our season fizzled out in frustration, but Thaksin is risking a hell of a lot right now. Could he change the habit of a lifetime and review his decision?
