Nigel Clough’s reign as Sheffield United boss is over - so what do supporters make of the club’s decision to sack him.

We asked fans on Twitter to give their views on Clough’s dismissal after 19 months in charge.

And we also wanted to know who Unitedites want to see replace him at the helm.

Here is a selection of the responses:

@JoshBritton94 No shock he’s gone, Don’t want us to rush into signing a new manager.

@Spellstef He can have no complaint. Too stubborn & wasted money in all the wrong areas. No CB’s all season, was a dereliction of duty.

@HaydnWilshaw boring to watch last season, no fight or passion just negative for me. Adkins

@MarkMarkcolton shocked to be honest but home performances this season have been poor fans backed clough in general so surprised

@Kier_Ss Correct decision, his negative tactics cost us too many points. I’d like to see Mark Warburton at the Lane.

@Daryl_6 decent football at times,no plan B, too many points needlessly thrown away. I’d go Warburton or Derek McInness

@LynneAllen3 Happy NC has gone. Adkins or Lambert to restore some enthusiasm at the Lane. Morgan with Warnock upstairs as a left fielder!

@ReeceBennett93 need someone who can restore some passion

@AndyAndysimmons No brainer for me Karl Robinson knows this league inside out and committed to playing football and developing players

@AnnaJackson1299 I want Mark Warburton

@innovativo Stuart Pearce

@Andyyysw Warburton, Holloway or Warnock

@RobertCarlArmin Adkins, Warburton minus Weir, or Hasselbaink

@Maddog1889 Nigel Adkins
