West Ham United 0 Manchester City 2

Take A Bow, Sven The Revolutionary by Martin Samuel
There was only one certainty about Sven-Göran Eriksson’s revolutionised Manchester City. Four. Four. Two. It was his touchstone in more than five years as England head coach. Great players, such as Paul Scholes, were sacrificed to it; tournament campaigns drifted listlessly, lost in his thrall to it... The Times

Fantasy Football From Eriksson's New Man City by Patrick Barclay
Strange things happen when Sven-Goran Eriksson comes here. Franny Jeffers scores for England (albeit in a 3-1 defeat by Australia) and Manchester City achieve instant success with a scratch team... Sunday Telegraph
Eriksson's New Look City Deal Hammers Early Blow by Jamie Jackson
'Hello everybody.' With a couple of words, a laidback - even by his standard - Sven-Goran Eriksson announced his second act in the sharp end of English football to a packed Upton Park press room. Most of the nation's top sporting scribes were here to witness the return of the man from Torsby. Well, neither he nor his football team disappointed... The Observer
