Karl Robinson: Linked with vacant job at Bramall Lane

United parted company with David Weir on Friday after a poor start to the season and they slumped to the bottom of the League One table after losing 3-2 to Coventry on Sunday.

Chris Morgan took charge of the team for the game at the Sixfields Stadium in Northampton.

But Robinson, who guided the Dons to a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane on 31 August, has emerged as a frontrunner for the role.

Nigel Clough, sacked as Derby manager after defeat to east midlands rivals Nottingham Forest on 28 September, has also been linked to the vacancy.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
