RIP Colin Murphy

RIP Colin Murphy, rather thrown in at the deep end at Derby. He was appointed with the intention of keeping the managers seat warm while Clough was persuaded to return. If only.



Really sorry to hear this. I liked Colin as a person, but Dave's shoes were huge ones to fill. The next man in the hot seat after Colin shat in those shoes.

Always sad when someone passes.

He was a classic example of appointing a caretaker manager after some good results which, given the team, was almost impossible not to achieve. But he was around at the start of the slide into oblivion.

He did better later in his career, at Hull and Lincoln.

EDIT: to add, we called him "Blinker" because he didn't cope in front of television lights.

And please everyone, it would be inappropriate to discuss glass coffee tables.
