    Screw Mickey Adams, he’s still managing at too high a level. Thanks for the memories at Brighton, Mick… we’re still digging out from your debacle of a management stint last year.

    Anyone who thinks that the way to get the best out of your personnel – your entire playing personnel, by the way, not just a couple of them, your entire playing staff – is to tell everyone how rubbish you think they are, is an idiot. And in this case, an egomaniac whose career is characterised mostly with failure. Could it just be… that the players are unable to respond to poor management, tactics and coaching? Could that possibly be the case?

    Enjoy your last moment in the sun Mickey, I think you’ve just blown any chance of another job in management once you’ve lost this one. And the cheers will be heard from Swansea to Brighton, via Coventry, Leicester and Brentford.
