my point is in two parts here
a) to take a 78k pay cut considering he was in his first managers role for us, and we're not the last of the big spenders, what were we paying him ? too much I feel.

b) Who will replace him ? I have heard a rumour it "may" be Chris Hughton and I really do hope it is , a great manager poorly treated at NUFC (saying that he'd better get used to that with us). I have also heard Megson of which with his past won't sit well with the fans.

Like this season hasn't been a disaster so far, this could be the nail in the coffin for our Championship career.

Good Luck Gary right man wrong time, I hope you have better luck performing miracles for Wales than you did with us

I have to confess that I haven't a clue who Gary Speed is, and I'm wondering if my life is any the worse for not knowing! Smile

Sorry we I mean Sheffield united

Colin, Gary Speed OBE played for various roundyball clubs Newcastle United, Bolton and Everton, aparently he played for a club in Leeds but I don't hold that against him

beck, I think the Wales job is a better one for someone just starting in coaching it's a no lose position for a while.
Some good Wales players now with Bale, Davies etc and he could someone like Giggs to help bring these youngsters through.
