'If It's Football, It's Vital'

City Give Sven The Boot

Monday 2 June 2008 City fans finally heard the news they had all been expecting when; at exactly 9am, the official Manchester City website announced the departure of manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

The Clubs official statement reads...

Sven-Goran Eriksson and Manchester City Football Club have parted company by mutual consent, the Club announces today.

'Chief Executive, Alistair Mackintosh said, 'The Board of Directors and all at Manchester City would like to thank Sven for his efforts and contributions throughout the season and we wish him all the best for the future. Sven remains a friend of the Club.'

'The Club will make no further announcement in relation to the managerial position until after a successor is appointed.'


Vital Manchester City will closely monitor further developments and bring them to you as soon as we are able. In the meantime, readers can click here to view Sven's Fact file.

"Left the club by mutual consent" my arse! Given the boot more like. At least everyone now officially knows Sven has left, the only point of contention now is...who will be his successor?
Tudor
Was just about to post exactly the same Tudor, he was forced out and quite disgracefully. Feel sorry for you Citeh supporters, think you've got an awful new owner who understands nothing of football!
The Fear
I seem to remember at this time last year Toxin was busy buying up the shares and the media were forecasting that the new manager would be from a list of the likes of Allardyce, Jewell, Curbishley etc. Then lo and behold up pops Sven from nowhere. I have that feeling that the same thing will happen this time in that Toxin will pull a rabbit out of the hat and appoint someone who has not been mentioned by the media with the post

p.s..... BTW my money is still on Zico...
alphieblues
Hughes for me.
Tudor
Good luck Sven - you've given us some great memories this year! If Hughes is the man, the Hart / Johnno / Richards / Dunne situation has to be the priority. Losing the likes would be a huge step backwards. We wait with baited breath - the City rollercoaster goes on .......
oliverblue
Have to say, even though Hughes is a rag, I would have him over Scolari etc because he has top flight experience and age on his side. Let's see what happens next..Still not happy about the Sven debacle and fear for the future. I want to see our best players kept for starters.
Johnny Baguette
Tudor, You are thinking far from emotions, that good, Alphie if Hughes take the lead, I expect we be at least one of finals, and in that time I will come to you in manchester and go togther to the stadium to see the final match, Dont care who Paying tickets, JB will Provides ( JB say somthing ) .

Tudor
Commiserations guys,would you lot even accept ex red sparky?Would he go to you and work for the idiot running your club,and upset his old fans in the process or are the rumours all smoke and mirrors?
