Swede talk from headline writers

The Local is not responsible for the content of blog comments.

Being a Swede is an invitation for headline writers to sharpen their puns and several have been at it today.

There’s a ‘Swede smell of success’ for golfer Linda Wessberg whose closing round of 65 won her the Vediorbis Open de France Dames, as reported in Sporting Life.

Meanwhile the Brunei Times spends ‘One Swede Day’ with tennis player Mats Wilander.

Back at Sporting Life, it’s ‘Swede and sour for City’. Manchester City, that is, the English football club which appears to be on the verge of appointing Sven-Gran Eriksson as boss.

Opinions are divided on the matter. While Eriksson’s club record over the years is excellent, England fans have bitter-swede memories of his time as national club boss.
