It's interesting to see how the knives are out for Sven-Goran Eriksson the second he leaves his England post.
And the most quiet of the lot - Michael Owen - has suddenly found his voice.
Never a man to make waves, Owen always sits on the fence. But a sudden gust of wind, and the Toon striker has actually made a controvertial statement.
He says Sven-Goran Eriksson's decision to play Wayne Rooney as a lone striker during last Saturday's World Cup clash with Portugal was the reason the players were sent home after defeat.
Owen: 'You would suggest Rooney's probably only got angry because of what's happened in the first hour of that game. It's a frustrating role to play.
'Wayne Rooney is one of the best strikers in the world and you're cutting one of his legs off if you're playing just one up front.'
