Episode 168 – Derby sack Clement

Paul Clement

This week the boys reflect on the surprise sacking of Derby County manager Paul Clement, who was relieved of his duties after just eight months and 33 games in charge of the Rams. Chairman Mel Morris says promotion ‘was not the primary target‘ this season, but claimed the club hadn’t made enough progress under Clement. We get a view from Jonathan Rodgers, Derby fan and ‘Facing Two Ways‘ blogger.

Elsewhere, we focus on the two sides through to April’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final. Following Lee Johnson’s decision to switch Oakwell for Ashton Gate, we find out more about Barnsley’s up and down season from Doug O’Kane, sports editor at the Barnsley Chronicle. The Tykes’ will face Oxford United at Wembley – we’re joined by U’s fan George Dugdale from BT Sport, who also discusses his hopes of promotion to League One.

There’s also Neil Warnock‘s latest move discussed, a total and utter technical disaster behind the scenes… and we ask, is, er Nigel Pearson the second coming of Pep Guardiola?
