image for More Premier League Managers To Give Their Teams 'A Good Talking-to' On The Pitch At Halftime
This man is showing scant regard to the fact that we can see him getting angry with the lady

Phil Brown may have started a trend at Hull City.

The Tigers boss kept his players out on the pitch at halftime in their game at Manchester City last Saturday, so that he could give them a good rollicking, after a first-half capitulation had seen them 4-0 down at the interval.

Brown was slated in the media, but now, other Premier League managers say they, too, may follow his lead and berate players on the pitch in front of supporters when their teams are playing badly.

One person who gave his full support to the Hull City manager, was the Manchester United supremo, 82-year-old Sir Alex Ferguson, who said:

"There's nothing wrong with giving the team a good talking-to if they're playing badly. If any of my players were having a howler, I'd kick boots at them."

Droylsden boss, Dave Pace, also favoured taking matters into his own hands in extreme circumstances. He said:

"I'm my own boss. I laugh at criticism. I often have to pull stunts that nobody else in the game would attempt. Why, in our game against Chesterfield recently we were 2-0 down with 15 minutes to play. I didn't waiver - I had the floodlights turned off!"
