There has long been a suspicion that Sven has a screw loose - or is a loose screw - but there is a real danger that his expensively assembled Leicester team could soon collapse after some very ordinary results and performances so far this season.
Given all the money spent, the team has an amazingly ordinary look about it. A forward line of Vassells and Nugent isn't going to strike fear into the opposition, even though they have amassed 23 England caps and 7 international goals between them. Both only have a 50% strike rate when aiming at a barn door from 5 yards, whilst Beckford is a moody bastard who is unlikely to respond positively to the Swede's failure to start him.
Former Hammer Konchesky was never great at his best and is another whose two caps say more about the paucity of English born talent than his ability. How out of place did he look in a Liverpool shirt last season? Paintsil is another familiar to Hammers fans and we never saw much to suggest that he was anything other than ordinary. King is decent but nothing more and the same goes for Danns and Fernandes. How has so much been spent to assemble such an ordinary looking team?
Much more mid table mediocrity and Sven will surely be sent flat packing just like another former England manager who was shown the door early up the road in Nottingham. Is it any wonder the England team have won nothing since 66 with clowns like this in charge?
