Clark's men claimed a 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday, with Marlon King grabbing a last-gasp winner and moving his side away from the drop zone.

King is one of a host of players linked with a move away from St Andrew's and the Blues boss is aware he may be bidding farewell to a number of players who featured in Saturday's win.

"We need to do something in terms of players outgoing to keep us going," said Clark.

"For a couple of days it will be a bit tough, but come Thursday night I will know what I am doing.

"The toughest thing for us at the moment is that I cannot go after the targets that I want. I can't make calls to players and their agents at this moment in time because I don't know what I have got to work with.

"This has been a massive learning curve for me. All the coaching courses I have been on could never teach me how to handle the situation.

"But I am enjoying it, I am at a massive football club and we want to get it back to where it belongs. I am proud to be the manager here.

"The chairman said no-one is for sale for everybody is available. We are not putting people out there with a for sale sign in front of them. It's frustrating."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
