Steve Clarke Speaks Out
Following the dismissal of his great friend Gianfranco Zola, Steve Clarke has spoken up and said...precisely nothing. As the world awaits in anticipation of a broadside from out of the shed where the bibs and bollards are stored, all we hear is the sound of silence.
Am I alone in thinking this strange? What kind of friend is Clarke exactly? Wouldn't you expect him to show solidarity with Zola? Surely a statement expressing regret (or dismay even) might be in order? Have I missed something perhaps? Has Clarke walked, saying that he couldn't possibly stay at the club after Gianfranco's sacking? Has he come out and said the sacking is a terrible mistake? Has he assured the world that Zola will prove himself a great manager in the future? If not, why not?
Is he looking after Number 2 perhaps, anxious to keep hold of his own hopelessly inflated salary? Or is he hoping to get the top job himself? Or does he understand that Sullivan and Gold had no other choice, having experienced first hand Zola's inexperience, seen the folly of his decision making? Clarke was a full back himself wasn't he? Surely he could see how hopelessly unsuited Spector was to the left back role?
It is all conjecture at the moment of course. The sun is setting on the training ground and Steve Clarke is busy for the moment, collecting up the bollards, folding away the bibs. Perhaps when everything is locked away safely in the shed, he will find the time to talk. Perhaps.
