Kevin Blackwell: Edging towards Shakers exit

The Shakers have been relegated to League Two and need £1million of investment just to stay alive next season.

Jonson Clarke-Harris volleyed Bury into an early lead and added a second with a stunning 20-yard free-kick. Nicky Ajose then made it 3-0 to the Shakers with a quality finish.

Yeovil woke up after half-time, James Hayter heading home from a corner and Kevin Dawson adding a second in injury time.

Blackwell said: "I don't know what's going on at the moment. If new people come in they might not want me here anyway.

"I am sure of one thing. I will not be hanging around if we're struggling to get wages in and pay the players.

"That's not a way to run a football club and I won't stay if that happens.

"The players haven't got the credit they deserve and, as a manager, I feel myself and the club have let them down.

"The shame about it is I think we could've stayed up. But the way we're run at the moment, it's no wonder why we are where we are.

"It's a missed opportunity because we were good enough to stay up, but we didn't have the players because of the transfer embargo."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
