'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robins Exit Confirmed

The inevitable has been confirmed and Mark Robins has been named as the new manager of Huddersfield Town on Thursday morning.

Lee Carsley and Steve Ogrizovic have been placed in temporary charge of the Sky Blues after the departure of Robins and first-team coach Steve Taylor.

The club have expressed their 'disappointment' at the departure of a man they gave a three-year contract to and backed with a 'considerable financial commitment' in terms of signings.

Speaking at his first press call in West Yorkshire, Robins said: "I spoke to the owner, I sought assurances and didn't get any assurances from the owner of Coventry.

"I absolutely wish them all the best, they work their socks off and as I've said before that club needs support from Coventry City Council.

"That led to a decision to want to speak with Huddersfield and that's how the decision has been arrived at."

Another far-fetched episode in the CCFC soap opera on the same day that ACL make more claims about SISU and the rent. That's worrying but for Mr Robins to allude to 'assurances' not being received from the owners I'm sorry I just don't believe it. Nothing has changed at the club in that respect from five months ago and it did not affect his job one bit.

His comments about needing more support from the council show that this is a bit of a red herring. If the club 'work their socks off' as he ays then why not stick with them until the end of the season at least. If things go awry then he could have walked away with his head held high and the pick of better jobs than the one he has taken.
