    Well said Ian. I often wonder whether the flamboyance of the Ron Atkinson era at Man United was at the expense of a possible title under the thoughtful tutelage of Sexton. In an age when Aston Villa could win a title with 14 players and Liverpool could get the cigar out while Southampton and Watford led the also-rans from a mile behind, I can’t help thinking Sexton would have driven a more sustained challenge from the United players of the time. And a thoroughly nice man to boot.
