Overwhelming Support for Sven!

Overwhelming Support for Sven!

Following on from the widely reported comments attributed to Heidi Pickup, Dave Wallace and the Supporters Trust which were reported as representative of all City supporters, this site ran its own poll to establish what level of support Sven Goran Eriksson could expect from visitors to this site.

The results are overwhelming

Of 203 supporters polled, 80% expressed support for Eriksson. This quite clearly contrasts with the negative press from the reported 70/30 against.

Naturally I won`t claim that this represents all City supporters` opinion, nor would I expect to be quoted as such, but the results correlate favourably with similar polls on manchesteronline and other supporters` sites.

This site has always offered support to the supporters trust and will continue to do so. Speaking personally however, I hope the trust is big enough to withdraw comments attributed to it if they are found to have no substance.

Results

Sven-Goran Eriksson, Manchester City Manager?

Yes - 80%

No - 20%

but scarily let down by 'the golden generation' ..... I think his qualification record is as good as any and despite my wanting him to leave the Ingerland post I'd have had second thoughts if I knew the answer was McClaren

I just wish he will get his money back, so we can compete with you know who across the road. Start spreading the news, City did it the Thai way. old and corny and not original.

I understand that Svennis The Menace is the only manager to have won a league and cup double in three countries and you can't do that without scoring goals. Goals! Remember them??!!

What I do not understand is why is Sven hesitating, because he who hesitates does not want the job, or is he just waiting confirmation of the takeover?

SGE always comes across as business like and shrewd and will not be cheap to employ. I guess there are also a lot of reassurances required so soon into a club takeover. We also have no experience of operating at this level so maybe it comes with the territory. The MUEN is reporting meanwhile that the deal is almost done.
