Even if Sheffield United do well under new manager, Nigel Adkins, sacking a good and successful manager remains an immoral act.
Nigel Clough had forged a forceful, determined team for success, and it has now been ruined by mindless intervention, and a monstrous, stupid decision.
It is a betrayal of meaningful recognition that brings with it rough justice, even to the players who were wholly behind Nigel, their consummate manager.
It was expected greatly that he would do it this coming time – it was written in the wind.
We will have to wait and see with Adkins.
