Stop picking on Sven

I'm sure someone is surprised to find out that English football fans are a little unhappy with Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson after there surprise 1-0 embarrassment by Northern Ireland. Anyway, Michael Owen is standing by his coach and telling folks its the fault of the players not the person in charge of the players.

Here's his quote:

"If the manager gets stick it's due in no small part to the players. We were out there playing and we didn't perform well enough."

"We played well for the first half an hour but then seemed to get worse and worse. But we take collective responsibility for the performance and now we have to show collective togetherness, stick tight and put it right in the next two games."

I'm sure that will quiet all the fans down.
