A Week in the Life

A Week in the Life

One week on from the great escape and what a week it`s been.

Jewell

Following the epic battle of Bramall Lane, where we fought as though our lives depended upon it, General Jewell resigned and yet again there was more turmoil.

In my opinion Jewell had done as much as he could with our club and it was time for a move on the managerial front for the benefit of all concerned.

Don`t get me wrong, Jewell was and still is a legend in my eyes, but some times a change is needed to get to the next level, so we had an opportunity to move the club forward.

We blew it, big style.

Hutchings

Chris Hutchings may be a good coach; he might have been around the place for the past six years and knows the club inside out, but is he the right man to take us to the next level, I believe not.

The club had an opportunity to make a statement, appoint a well respected manager, someone who can attract good players, someone who`s managed at this level before with success.

Whelan obviously does not have full confidence in Hutchings, he`s only given him a twelve month contract, not much compensation there if he gets the sack come November.

Hutchings track record at this level is not that good either, his only previous managerial position was at Bradford City, he managed one win in seven games and was shown the door, Bradford got relegated that season, Hutchings took the job after Jewell had resigned, you get my drift.

I hope, for our sakes, history does not repeat.

With time and good performances I hope to God that I am proven wrong.

There`s been a good start in the signing of players with Lee Carsley rumoured to be coming in.

But that is just one and we need plenty if last seasons relegation battle is to be avoided again.

We need more quality through out the team and in the back up squad.

Whelan

Dave Whelan is still spouting on about the Tevez affair; this is one situation that is becoming tedious.

Let Sheffield United fight it, give them support from behind the scenes, but for goodness sake Dave, give it a rest.

Sticking his head above the Parapet like this leaves the club wide open, I hope we don`t do anything wrong next season, if we do then we will be hammered.

Roll on next week, it`s better than Coronation Street at the moment
