36 minutes - That is exactly how long it took some England fans to turn on Fabio Capello.
Just after the half-hour mark, with the game scoreless and England looking less than fluent, a section of the crowd decided they had had enough of this Italian character.
Their ire was raised by a patient passing move that saw the ball moved back to halfway and switched to the left, resulting in a shot on target by Joe Cole.
Where were the centre-backs lumping long balls in the general direction of the opposition box? It was all too much for some people.
Four minutes later, just as the malcontents put the finishing touches to their "Bring Back Mac" banners, England scored and all was well with the world.
Despite Eren Derdiyok's nifty equaliser (and didn't John Motson seem affronted that the teenager dared puncture Don Fabio's Catenaccio back four?) the Swiss were duly vanquished.
The Wembley boo-boys will claim that they paid their money, and had every right to down 12 pints of weak lager, disrupt the minute's silence for the Munich Air Disaster and barrack the new man in the dugout.
For a depressingly large number of people, it's what being an England fan is all about.
Who cares if it's counter-productive? Do what makes you feel good, even if it makes you look like a complete imbecile.
Mind you, Capello is used to being underappreciated. Real Madrid fans hated him, and the club sacked him despite winning last season's Liga title.
Early Doors will settle for victory at the 2010 World Cup followed by an inexplicable P45 for the man who masterminded it.

Switzerland weren't bad, but they weren't exactly good either. The Euro 2008 co-hosts' preparations are hardly going to plan, having also lost friendlies to Nigeria and USA.
All told, you can hardly imagine the touts rubbing their hands in glee at the thousands of euros being offered for a pair of tickets to Switzerland-Turkey in the group stage.
Which makes it all the more puzzling that both co-hosts were handed automatic places at Euro 2008 despite their questionable pedigree.
If two countries host a tournament, it is fairly unlikely that both are football powerhouses.
Belgium/Holland, Japan/Korea, Austria/Switzerland - to be brutally honest, only the Dutch are any good out of that rag-bag of also-rans.
The Austrians are far worse than the Swiss, having lost to England right when the Steve McClaren era was pouring lighter fluid over itself and preparing to turn into a massive fireball.
Early Doors can't pretend to be a linguistic expert, but it believes the Austrian national anthem 'Land der Berge, Land am Strome' translates as 'Like the Germans, only less punctual'.
It is fair enough to let the hosts in when tournaments are held in serious countries like Germany, France and Italy.
But the multi-country concept is inherently flawed. Early Doors suggests that 15 perennial whipping boys (Liechtenstein, Andorra, Wales and the like) table a joint bid for Euro 2016, leaving just one place up for grabs from the qualifying competition.
Don't get Early Doors wrong - it is not saying England have been robbed of their rightful place at the European Championships by a couple of alpine impostors.
It just seems a shame to give two of the 16 places to second-tier (at best) teams - and if neither side can give England much of a game, what hope do they have against the teams who actually bothered to qualify for Euro 2008?

DEBATE OF THE DAY: Yesterday's question on how to improve international friendlies brought a host of entertaining suggestions.
Early Doors has a hunch that cjg274 was celebrating a 3-0 win against Norway last night judging by this effort: "Play against the England Rugby team - They'll look like they're thrashing us during the first half with their 'naturalised' English Brazilian Ronalwilko. But by the end of the second they'll have fallen apart in true English style, we'll of thrashed them and probably left them crying like girls. Yep even Macca's team would look good, perfect scenario really."
bantamstu unveils a four-point plan for your viewing pleasure: "1) Triangular pitches, three teams, 1 ball; 2) Have a judging panel award 0.1 goals for a nifty trick; 3) Allow the refs to score. Change them every 15 minutes and award a cup to the official who has scored the most. Include them in the next England squad if they managed to outscore the national team; 4) Play them behind closed doors and just tell us they were exciting."
Finally, peter.r.nichols keeps it simple but effective: "Dogs! Throw a couple of dogs onto the pitch."
Today's talking point: Should Michael Owen and David Beckham play for England again? Like all good GCSEs, credit will be added for explaining your answer.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Ask Steve to defend!" An exasperated Fabio Capello tells Owen Hargreaves to get Steven Gerrard to do his tracking back. He may find this is a recurring theme..
FOREIGN VIEW: 'Les Bleus cracked' - Our sister website eurosport.fr laments France's friendly defeat to Spain, while our colleagues in Madrid are not much happier, looking past the result to complain about the poor standard of play. No pleasing some people.
