Sven axe offers a lesson for chairmen everywhere
by James Riches
In the opening paragraphs of my Championship preview for this very website back in August, I wrote the following sentence:
“Add into the mix two former England managers, and we could be set for one of the most exciting Championship seasons ever.”
Now, in my defence, that is so far not a lie. Yes, it’s not even November, and Sven-Göran Eriksson has joined the hapless wally extraordinaire Steve McLaren in exiting the division, but you can’t say their downfalls haven’t been entertaining in their own sad, grimly imminent way.
