You get the idea...

Struggling Bryan Robson the manager of struggling Championship strugglers Sheffield United, could be on his way out of Bramall Lane, according to some gossip I heard on the bus.

Robson, who has been at the South Yorkshire club since the end of last season when the Blades were relegated from the Premier League, is today holding talks with chairman Kevin McCabe, and realises his number may be up.

He had an illustrious playing career with West Bromwich Albion, Manchester United and England, and captained the national side on no less than 65 occasions. Since taking up management, though, he has had unproductive spells at Middlesbrough, Bradford City and again at West Brom.

Sheffield United have only themselves to blame, therefore, having taken on a failure in management terms, and, despite having earned the name Captain Marvel whilst at Old Trafford, Robson now looks likely to join the ranks of the unemployed by this time next week.

Said Robson to reporters:

"I'm struggling. I realise I'm not a very good manager. All of the players see me as a one-footed has-been with a dour facial expression and a daft Northeast accent. Where's the dole office?"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
