So, another one bites the dust, as yet another Shafting United manager is shown the door because West Ham United signed Carlos Tevez on an illegal Third Party Agreement.
Poor David Weir did everything he could to pull the Blunted Blades out of the relegation zone of the old Third Division, but no matter what players he selected, and no matter what formations he employed, the shadow of Carlos Tevez proved too much.
As one Sheffield United fan complained: "It is as if Tevez is in the starting eleven of every team we face. How else can you explain the way we keep losing to crap teams? I mean, the guy is a genius and wins games on his own, so is it any surprise that even with ten donkeys in the team, opponents in the third tier of English football keep defeating us?"
Weir has not yet commented on how Tevez cost him his job, but Old Big Gob Warnock will no doubt be on the blower soon, recommending legal action. Colin knows Tevez cost him his job and knows that Sheffield United would presently be playing Champions League football if not for West Ham's underhand cheating and the Premier League's failure to take appropriate action because of the way they favour London clubs and because they love Trevor Brooking.
