Grow up, England
Good luck to Manchester City against Man U tomorrow. Though it's going to be tough, to say the least. As one City fan delightfully put it on the BBC this morning: "We do tend to struggle against teams in the bottom half of the Premiership!" In particular, I hope that Sven Goran Eriksson rapidly re-gains the respect he deserves as a manager following the pasting he took from press and fans alike at the end of his England tenure. It says a good deal about the sheer childishness of much football newsmongering that a coach who achieved the highest point percentage of all time in major tournament matches for an England manager could be called "a disaster" by a series of senior columnists. Grow up, England.
