Im absolutely behind sven all the way. Im not saying that he hasnt dropped a few clangers or made some rather bazaar choices, but tell me a manager who hasn't
But before anyone berates him and calls for his head, lets take stock and see the facts..
1/ If Campbells goal had been allowed(as it should) we wouldnt be having this debate now.
2/. we aint used to playing in temperitures of 30 degrees, unlike the portuguese.
3/. sven can only play the players he has available to him. due to the influx of foreign transfers, there isnt too many english players who are breaking through into the first team squads of our premier league teams.
4/. our defence desperately needs a marshall. david seamen was more competant in the air and could command his area better than tony james ever will, also the likes of terry butcher, tony adams , stuart pearce and steve bould were capable of commeanding their penalty areas, presently we dont have english defenders of a substancial enough quality to be able to do this.
5/. our midfield. great individuals as they are, they somehow dont seem to be able to gel when theyre up against a quicker, more agile opposition. Due to the defencive confusions that we,re enduring, theyre spending more time being pulled back to cover for a very deep positioned back four.
6/. We have a real gem in wayne rooney, but lets not forget hes still only 18. darias vassel was maybe the wrong chioce of partner for an excellent micheal owen, but, sven wanted a forward on who has in the past ran at defences and matched them for pace. could you see heskey running at them without falling on his arse?
7/. Can you think of another coach to take over if you were to get your wish and have sven sacked?......................errrrrrrrrrr no.
well not one that would want the job anyway. peter taylor, all of us at leicester know just how shiyte he really is. steve mcClaren, not exactly a legend at middlesborough. martin o'neill....IF ONLY WE COULD ENTICE HIM...SOD OFF SVEN 8)
