After the last international break we predicted that the six games in October/November until the next break could prove crucial for Jose Riga. As it happens, he fell at the halfway stage having lost the first three games against Huddersfield, Derby and Reading. So now the baton is handed to Lee Clark who'll probably wish the next break for the Euro qualifiers was sooner rather than later. If he is really looking to ingratiate himself with the tangerine faithful then Saturday's home game against Ipswich and the two away trips to Fulham and Leeds means he has eight days to try and find some results.  1
Clark Days Ahead?
As Jose Riga packs his case, helps himself to the free Blackpool Hotel toiletries and cashes in his Morrison bonus points before heading back to Belgium, there is an empty desk at Bloomfield Road which needs filling. Wed Oct 29th 09:07 0

Did Derby flatter to deceive?

The Horsemen of the Apocolypse.
   by Curryman Wed 3rd Sep 2014
