Excellent post Cacodemon, have five - oh wait, there isn't that option

I've just seen this on the BBC 'Gossip Column':

More England players are expected to criticise former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson in the aftermath of the World Cup. An agent close to many of the squad has said: "The general view among the players is that he was pretty hopeless and didn't have a clue." (The Observer)

I just wish they had spoken up when it would have been more useful to do so. Then again the similarities between Eriksson and Houllier were striking and so what good would it have done? There's a touch of King Canute about both of them, the way they both persisted in tactics that even the most football-illiterate could see weren't working. Truly weird.
