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

Sven Says Sorry (AUDIO)


Speaking in his post-match press conference, Manchester City manager Sven Goran Eriksson, looks back at his heaviest ever defeat as a first team boss, as Chelsea put in their best display in years to demolish the blue half of Manchester a torrid afternoon.

Eriksson's previous heaviest defeat was 5-1 against Arsenal as manager of IFK Goteborg, and says he has no positives to reflect on.

City made an impressive start to the season, but the manner of defeat exhibited they still have some work to do before competing at the top.

You were clinically taken apart! It could have happened to anyone!

Lets cut the crap about Richards being wasted at CB - a footballing, pacey and strong cb is like rocking horse ****e. What he needs is a proper full back. Does nobody have a view on Garrido? For all Jordan's alleged lack of stomach and ability this was a master class. What was even more worrying was SGE's lack of remedy. Ball for Hamann with the game over? We've two perfectly competent full backs at the club FFS. With the game at 0-0 I had already started to count the number of occassions Richards was getting drawn out wide (exposing Dunne and Hamann) to cover for the inexplicably AWOL Garrido. Even on TV I had the count at seven before half-time. The second half provided further graphic evidence of the turkey shoot down our left flank. Repeatedly caught stranded and failing to make any effort to recover Garrido had surrendered. For me he should never pull on a city shirt ever again.

Craig, Spot on. The commentators on Canal+Sport said it was a procession through Garrido. He was absolutely brutal and definitely gave up. The Ball back in town for Bolton.
Johnny Baguette
Wake up call or what... Just a freak scoreline. Chavski will never play like that again. Nothing went right for city, I have never seen Richards play that poorly but he is a youngster and will learn. Petrov looks class not sure about Hamman looks of the pace.

I see some people are taking the michael making garrido mom against cheslski, If you are doing the write up JB please take this into account. Very similar to when we made gary chuckle brother mom when he tried to outfox the goal against the rags, even I voted for him.
Buzz Lightyear
I've been keeping an eye on that one, Buzzer. We had a bit of a Chelski invasion back there and they obviously appreciated the way Garrido went of his way to not be in their way....
Johnny Baguette
I have afeeling that he may not play against Bolton, but that may have an adverse afect on him, he is always trying to push up and hope that he has learnt his lesson, in the true Willie Donachie style of never having crossed the half way line. He is young and will learn from this.
Buzz Lightyear
I really don´t think he has anything to be sorry about, upset about you defence, yes. But you had a bad day, thats all.
Blue is the colour
