Sven: the musical?

Not actually a happening project AFAIK but hopefully someone will be tempted to take up the option after reading this piece in the Guardian about Sven-Goran Eriksson's seven month tenure at Notts County.

It's got all the ingredients for a classic:

  • an opportunity to manage the North Korean national team
  • dodgy consortia of financiers (admittedly this is almost mandatory in English football nowadays - but not in Division 4?)
  • Sol Campbell
Combined with the best hi-jinks from Sven's England period this would make for a classic. (Who was it who said about his half-time team talk in the England-Brazil world cup game in 2002, "we needed Winston Churchill and we got Iain Duncan Smith"? Superb).
