I think he has a touch of the Micky Adams about him in that regard. Lets hope he is a successful.

I thought Micky Adams was an obnoxious <ovf censored>, at times in interviews!

Quite the redemption for Theo. Could have come out with two fingers to the fans, but a very nice sentiment. Fair play to him after a nightmare season.

Just seen this. Going post it on the Smallsall forum I am. Wind up some dodgy accented nitwits. 

Christ won 4 on the bounce and the moaning goes on and on and on and on still it gives the players a rest.

Brisley. Hardly ever gets a mention. Love him.

Nowt fancy, just sticks it in row Z.

Nothing wrong with having CBs of differing attitude and proficiency - as has already been said, the opposition aren't scoring if the ball's in row Z!!!

Yeah Micky was much worse than Darrell, but Micky did dream up some classic quotes

Problem is after another great result we are talking about the after match interview with DC. I am extremely happy with all aspects of DC. What I don’t want is the kiss ass relationships we hear regularly between Angela Smith and O’Neill/Mckinlay and Mcgarry and Blartell.  Keep it up DC.

Yes .i do agree .¡

Quite rightly the whole squad and management have come in for glowing feelings after yet another excellent display, 

I would however like to just shout out my praise and thanks for Guthrie's late cameo yesterday.

He actually controlled the ball and did completely what we all wanted, in running time down and causing Exeter a few headaches. Like Robinson (fully deserved) both have struggled to show any goal scoring form but both proved yesterday what good coaching and probably encouragement from the manager can do for them. Had Guthrie scored at the end it would have made an absolutely fantastic day into utopia for me.

Well after the Harrogate game I needed to reprint my post from the after Exeter triumph. I just needed to again say well done to Guthrie for playing well and scoring. He has come in for diabolical stick but I, for one appreciate his unselfish play in shielding the ball and bringing in others to the action. OK, he's not a prolific scorer(we knew that from his Bradford Days) but since Clarke has been here we have all witnessed a definite upturn in Guthrie's input to games when he comes on. 

The whole squad now look as though they are enjoying life again and it cements my thoughts that Askey, unfortunately was well and truly out of his depth in League football.

Guthrie is being used pretty well at the minute. His all-round physicality is very effective late on, combined with some good hold up play and close control. Knackered defenders don't want to be marking a 6"3 forward who is fairly quick for his size, and one that is useful with the ball to feet.

In other sports, some players are retained for very specific circumstances - I know there are limits on squads and I don't massively wish to see Guthrie next season, but he's proven himself very effective at coming on, holding the ball up, winning free kicks, and running down time during this winning spell.

Again, Clarke has rapidly assessed a player and is getting much more out of them than others had.
