Sven Spoke To City Fans After Boro Battering

Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson spoke to the press following Sundays 8-1 battering by Middlesbrough.

Sven was reluctant to talk about the match itself; however, he found time to mention his Manchester City future...

"To live in the insecure is never good for anyone but I hope to not be living in the insecure very soon, within hours."

"I expect to speak to people - or they speak to me - from the owner's side, people in the club who work daily within the club.'

"I have had no answer (about his future) yet."

Asked what effect the speculation about his job had on the players and the performance, Eriksson added...

"You can never measure that."

Vital Manchester City says...

"Sit on the fence, why don't you!"

Do I get a sense that City fans are turning their backs on Sven?

Too many rumours, too much subterfuge for too long. Media sources stirring up City Academy graduate exits. Richards to rags is the latest. Somebody has to get a grip at MCFC.

An 8-1 is a disgrace, this will make it easier for Toxin to sack Sven. Still no news on the fair play league.

On the spot crowd witness: "The crowd issues were entirley down to shocking police tactics. The crowd was safe behind perimeter fencing with police batons wading in for no good reason. even the officer in charge was trying to urge restraint. The thing that turned ugly was two coppers beating up an old timer who was trying to walk past. it all went mental for a few minutes then. But still, noone passed the perimeter. if the police had stepped back three paces they could have handled anyone trying to get on the pitch without leaning into the gathered mass. The only shame angle should be directed at the Teeside Police taking a strategy straight out of the Rome manual on how to handle football fans. Prior to this, City fans were beyond reproach, even too jovial for my liking, cheering when Boro scored."

I just do not know what to say, normally our fans our well behaved, but how will the officals see it, as I say you can only lose a max of 5 points, still not enough for fulham to overtake us, but thew sending off, was it a penalty, from some sources, they say it was a fair tackle, if that was the case then we should appeal and wipe out the red card. Anyone got a view of that?
