Why On Earth Has Sven Joined Notts County?

Former Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has joined League Two side Notts County as a director of football, but why?

It wasn't long ago that City fans were up in arms after Sven's sacking, but I have to ask myself, is Mr Eriksson living in cuckoo-land?

I will leave the above question hovering above this page, well until I can think of a reasonable reply, but in the meantime, can anyone help me out.

I think Sven will get bored and very quickly. He says he wants to come back to the Premier League - well perhaps he may well do, but NOT with Notts County.

LOL seems pretty odd. Notts were taken over by a middle east consortium so I bed he is lining his pockets.

Ericcson has always been about the money,Notts county have probably offered him half decent money which he will take until hes offered a managers job.What is all this director of football *********.i liked Sven but hes obviously lost his appeal.I watched the joy of the fans and it reminded me of us last august,i genuinely wish them well and hope they go on a fantastic ride i just hope sven isnt taking them for one

I read some report about Maradona becoming some sort of Ambassador and quitting the Argentina job he has before the WC. WTF? Strange things are afoot.

It is when County are paying him 2 million a year to basically do nothing Phartman.

You see Phartman, that is why irony is lost on you. Lets take it really slowly and simply. You know Championship Manager? A very successful computer game for nerds who think they understand football. Now, when you go and buy the game. You want to be Chelsea or Manchester united because you want to win things. It's understandable, but lacks any real challange. Now, you are bored and you want to something more challanging. So you try Man City or Everton or Tottenham. Winning something with them is a little harder, but a bit more satisfying. Are you still with me? Good, because its what the likes of Tevez, Adebayor, Barry etc have done. Now, you have the uber nerds. Imagine doing something with Notts County. That's a challenge and sometimes well off people are attracted to the challenge. The footballers at City and SGE are wealthy beyond your simple framework of life. The money isn't a motivation, they have it. The thought of winning something that was a challenge, that's the satisfaction.

By all reports, before he was ever linked with County, Sven and Grip were claiming that they had received offers but there was no challenge there. He flirted with Pompey but I think that soured when their buyout turned into an odyssey. Otherwise, it seems he wasn't getting interesting offers. I'd suggest that he took this job because he wanted one of two things: a top club where he could challenge for honours one last time (I doubt he received any of this kind of offer) or a club which would be one last chance to have some fun, a club which stuck out, not a bottom half club unlikely to progress, which I'd suggest were what the vast majority of his offers were. The Notts County offer seems to have qualified as this due to its extraordinary nature.

Sven for me at City was a gentleman, but lacked that killer punch, I think he badly treated by Dr T. and I wish him every success at Notts County.He was not allowed to Finish his project here, perhaps he will be allowed to do it in Nottingham. He could well look at City youngsters and take them on loan like Weiss, Mee and Mcgivern and send them back to us even better players.

It shouldn't be too much of a challenge for him to ***** them over.
