Parreira fired for losing to minnows, rumored to return to Bafana to perpetuate losing streak here
SHOOT: When a team wins, the coach is praised, when they lose he is fired. Uh...who actually plays the game? I think there is a weird schism in sport, where coaches are given both too much credit and too much blame for the teams performance. And luck is also a factor. Sometimes you have a good coach and a bad team, or a bad coach and a good team. Sometimes you have a good coach, on a good team, and bad luck... I'm not convinced either of the Brazilian coaches are worth raving about, but then neither are Bafana.
