Now, is Hiddink a hoodwink
Or just another aberration?

Sven Goran Eriksson puts his foot in it again – again according to the media.
Or is he just being truthful?
Either way, he’s almost certainly being indiscrete.
Based on todays story (taken from BBCi website) :
England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has reportedly hinted that Guus Hiddink will be the next England manager.
Eriksson told diners in a Stockholm restaurant that the PSV Eindhoven and Australia coach will succeed him when he leaves after the World Cup.
When asked by a couple, Eriksson reportedly said: “It will be Hiddink, and good luck to him.”
Eriksson’s indiscretion comes in the wake of his alleged remarks to an undercover newspaper reporter.
Eriksson’s remarks will be another source of embarrassment to the Football Association who are still reeling at the England coach’s revelations to the so-called fake sheikh.
