The Football Association has admitted that England coach Sven Goran Eriksson had an affair after it previously denied the rumours, it has been reported.

Eriksson was said to have split with his lover Nancy Dell'Olio amid newspaper allegations that he was having a relationship with FA secretary Faria Alam.

The News of the World revealed details of an e-mail from the 38-year-old former model to a friend which disclosed the relationship.

Miss Alam has strenuously denied the affair, and her employers issued several statements which said that the claims were inaccurate.

However, the FA climbed down after the newspaper said it produced the new e-mail evidence.

This could if proven true go against him as England's coach. It's not a good image that England would want, for their coach to be screwing around while Beckham misses the target from the penalty spot, but can score goals from outside the area.

I don't think most people care where he puts his dick as long as he's getting results, if things start slipping on the pitch then the fans will turn on him. I think most cheered him on when he bedded Ulrika

Yeah everyone loves a bit of scandal in footy. I don't think it will effect him in anyway. It will more than likely make him one of the lads to the players.

Rooneys fiance dumped him, after he enlisted with a prostitute. The call girl, named Charlotte, described Rooney as Dead Ugly. The pair made out in a washroom. Rooney who scored 4 goals for England in Portugal is devastated as to how it all came crashing down so quickly.
In response to the Erikson topic, a former England international described Erikson as having more imagination in the bedroom, rather than on the football field. The FA is set to take action on the 2 scandals as evidence starts to pile in. on the other hand other premiership news taken from: this link

A massive question mark hangs over the future of England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson after Football Association chief executive Mark Palios was on Tuesday cleared of lying over the Swede's affair with secretary Faria Alam.

Chairman Geoff Thompson has confirmed that a special meeting of the 12-man FA board will be held on August 5, when the full findings of the 'urgent inquiry' he launched on Monday and the action to be taken will be discussed.

The pressure on Eriksson was intensified hugely by a four-paragraph statement from Thompson which exonerated Palios from any blame over the PR shambles surrounding the Alam case, but tellingly did not mention the England coach at all.

Thompson feels the FA have been hugely embarrassed by the conflicting statements they released in the wake of stories alleging Eriksson had embarked on a relationship with Alam, an FA employee.

Initially, a statement was released by the FA denying there had been any relationship between the pair. This was however retracted seven days later when they were confronted with e-mail evidence proving there had been.

Squirrels stand in the way of Wayne Rooney engagement ring

Tue Jul 27,11:53 AM ET Add Entertainment - AFP to My Yahoo!

LONDON (AFP) - Treasure hunters are banned from an English squirrel reserve where the fiancee of football star Wayne Rooney is thought to have thrown her engagement ring in a pique of anger.

Coleen McLoughlin reportedly dumped the 25,000 pound (38,000 euro, 46,000 dollar) ring in the Formby Point nature reserve after a row with Rooney over claims that the Everton and England striker had sex with an escort girl.

The reserve -- home to about 300 endangered red squirrels -- belongs to the National Trust, which let it be known Tuesday that treasure hunters eager to find the ring would not be welcome.

"We really do not want people trampling through the woods and disturbing the squirrels," said National Trust spokeswoman Debbie Peers.

"Metal detectors are banned from the reserve anyway and we will enforce this," she added. "Anybody who is seen disturbing the squirrels will be asked to leave."

Formby Point is close to the luxury home in the north of England where Rooney and McLoughlin live.

News of their spat appeared in the Sun newspaper, which had exclusive access to Rooney during the Euro 2004 championships.

There are only 160,000 red squirrels left in Britain, compared to 2.5 million grey squirrels, a North American species whose talent for gathering food more quickly is blamed for their red cousins' plight

I think he means the time when a bunch of Leeds United players were charged in rape allegations. I am pretty sure they were charged and received suspensions from the FA. One of the reasons Leeds were relegated and later on went to become bankrupt. Also a reason for which Leeds are selling off its players. ie: Kewell to Liverpool, Viduka to Middlesborough, etc.

It was Leicester players not Leeds.....They never got a suspension or fined.

Originally posted by TRD
Leicester are to make a formal application to have assault charges against three of their players dropped. The club's chief executive Tim Davies said lawyers for Paul Dickov, Frank Sinclair and Keith Gillespie had now applied for them to be cleared of charges.They were accused of carrying out the drunken assault while on a training break in La Manga in southern Spain earlier this year.

With the Leeds players you might have been thinking of when two of them were up for charges of assult on a asain dude. Also a couple of other Leeds players were questioned over it. Micheal Duberry and i think Lee Bowyer. John Terry i think (i can't remember if it was him) and definatly Johnaton Woodgate were the ones who got done for it. They got banned and fined. The asain dude was reported to have taken a right ol beating.

The assult had nothing to do with them nearly going bankrupt or getting relegated as it happened about 3 seasons or more ago.....

I agree it most proberly didn't help them as a footballing side at the time, but the clubs demise is made up of bad management of the clubs finances, bad signings by previous managers, also high wages to mediocre players. Basically the people that own the club dug themselves a whole and couldn't climb out of it.

Hey no worries websufer..

It looks like they are taking this well serious as it has been all over the papers here. The way things are looking is that Sven might get the boot. I read that he might have had his wicked way with another women!

The FA is calling for Svens resignation. Beckham says he's standing behind Sven because of what he's done for football and that the players respect him. Then again after that missed penalty Beckham was reduced to Baggios status without the affairs.

The resignation should be quick if England are to stand a chance at the Germany 2006, with a new coach.

Affairs is not what the FA wants for its image. Having a pimp behind the wheel for England is shameful to say the least. Footballs too fragile for this kind of stuff. Chances are high that Sven will resign, before Germany '06, since FA officials will see him as mentally disturbed and a lonely individul.

This reflected in the England games at Euro '04 with only Rooney scoring the goals. Rooney scoring goals is a clear indication of Englands downfall on the pitch. Their quality players like John Terry and Beckham aren't stepping up. Rooneys breakup with his fiance should technically cripple him on the pitch, unless his been dumped before.
