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.

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.
