Svenni, we hardly knew ye

Well, that didn't take long. Too bad. I was hoping they'd stick with him, at least through the August and the US game there. Maybe they'll make Nery the Hothead player-coach. :>

Sven-Goran Eriksson gets fired again

MEXICO CITY — Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson was fired a day after a 3-1 loss to Honduras in World Cup qualifying.

The Mexican Football Federation announced the decision on Thursday.

Mexico has just one win in its last seven matches.

The 61-year-old Swede was hired in June to replace Mexican star Hugo Sanchez, who was fired after the country's under-23 team failed to qualify for the Olympics.

Former Manchester City manager Eriksson stirred controversy inside a country fiercely loyal to its national team when he added four naturalized citizens to the roster.

Personally, I think the only one crazy enough to take this job now is a Mexican, and since they already went the Hugo Sanchez route, I think they tab the Chivas coach for the job, that is if he wants it.
