Simon Grayson, Fabio Capello, Mick McCarthy and now Lee Clark have all left respective managerial positions in the past few days, with the latter given his marching orders by Huddersfield Town on Wednesday.

While McCarthy’s dismissal was fairly logical on the basis that Wolves had just lost a home match against West Brom, Clark appeared to be doing a reasonable job at the Galpharm Stadium, although two failed promotion bids appeared to be the reason behind his sacking.
In a statement by Clark, released on the League Managers’ Association website, he said: “I am very perplexed as to why I was dismissed as the manager of Huddersfield Town.
“Needless to say I am extremely disappointed and shocked considering that, with just 16 games left, we are in a such great position to compete for automatic promotion.
“We built on last season’s momentum following the play-off final by creating history in the Football League record books for consecutive unbeaten games. This was an immense achievement by everybody connected with the club.
“I am massively proud of my record with Huddersfield and I enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the players, coaching staff, supporters and indeed everybody at the club. I now wish them all the very best for the future and hope they will ultimately achieve promotion this season.”
