Faldo to blame for European Ryder Cup failure?

After surrendering the Ryder Cup to the Americans for the first time in nine years, the European captain Nick Faldo and his team selections come in for stinging criticism.

After surrendering the Ryder Cup to the Americans for the first time in nine years, is it the fault of the European captain Nick Faldo and his team selections? Faldo took some criticism in the run-up to the event for his handling of team affairs and made some unexpected tactical choices during the three days of action. Is he to blame? What should he have done differently? After all, his wildcard pick Ian Poulter was arguably Europe's best player. Should the burden of blame lay with the players or were the Americans just too good this time around? Have your say now!
