Goals in the 11th and 53rd minute set the striker up for a hat-trick but Clough sent on Nathan Tyson for the last 24 minutes - much to Robinson's chagrin.

"He was on a hat-trick so he wasn't exactly chuffed about it," said Clough.

"But he had been carrying a bit of a strain in training and with a game here against Barnsley on Tuesday it made sense to bring him off.

"If he's disappointed about it, he can score a hat-trick against them.

"It was the complete performance, exhilarating. We did everything right to take advantage of a difficult situation for Blackpool."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
