Lee Clarke sacked by Huddersfield

Have to say I am very surprised by the news that Huddersfield have sacked Lee Clarke this morning after their defeat to Sheffield United last night. Just goes to prove what an unforgiving business managing a football club is.

Huddersfield have been beaten just 3 times in 55 games and Clarke was said to have a good relationship with the club’s owner. I suppose Neil Warnock and Simon Grayson are available but it still seems an odd decision with Town 4 points from 2nd place.

A new manager doesn’t always have the midas touch straight away and I would have thought Jordan Rhodes et al would be very disappointed at the loss of Clarke and his important side kick Terry McDermott.

Warnock is the kind to galvanise a club, although if he is the board’s choice then he has been available since long before the transfer window closed. Meanwhile, I wonder if Leeds would be interested in Lee Clarke?

  1. Bewildering decision and one that, ironically enough, could end up costing them a fourth successive missed promotion opportunity. They have a two week gap to their next match so the timing is cynical as well as appalling. Sorry Terriers but you have no-one to blame but yourselves.
