Sheffield United have got it right with Nigel

I’M really pleased Nigel Clough’s got back into management so quickly with Sheffield United. He had a messy departure from Derby, and he would have been very bitter about his treatment. And I know from experience that if you aren’t careful, that bitterness can consume you. Now, he hasn’t got time to dwell on what […]

Jacob Butterfield: All I care about is playing
