Hey Mark, what was the reasoning behind Lee Clark getting sacked? Didn't he only lose 3 games in about 50 odd games? Must have been something behind the scenes, surely.
I have heard all sorts of rumours about why Lee Clark was sacked from my Huddersfield Town mates, from possible Money laundering, (although i think that is unlikely) to having punch up with players but i think the real reason was that Clark and Chairman Dean Hoyle didn't get on and when Lee Clark tried to get the Leeds job without letting Hoyle know, Hoyle used it as an excuse to get rid of Clark. It was an awful decision in my opinion as only at Huddersfield Town can you go a record 43 league games undefeated with only 3 defeats in 55 and be sacked for 'poor results', whilst still having a good chance of promotion. Lee Clark is one of the best young managers in the game and i think his sacking could have a negative impact on Town's promotion hopes this season. Some of the decision made at Town over the years are baffling like selling Marcus Stewart when they had a chance to get into the premier League about 10 years ago, now Town really is a Club to never place a bet on, as i would be a lot better off if even a quarter of my bets on Town came true.
I still think City are slight favourites for the league at the moment as they have to play United at the Ethiad stadium,
No chance. United's run in is brilliant. Not only do they have a proven track record at this time in the season but really they only have one tough game on paper. City have a handful.
Fergie is a genius. Winning back to back titles with this shower might be his greatest achievement. "Man United - best of a bad bunch".
I'm a born pessimist when it comes to Man. Utd, but United are always capable of having a freak results against the so called smaller clubs like the Blackburn game at Old Trafford earlier this season and Burnley Away two or three seasons ago. I agree though if United manage to win the League it will be Fergie's greatest achievement with the standard of the United squad and the money City have spent.
