Nottingham Forest sacked Stuart Pearce earlier this season. The former England under-21 boss started the season in great form but soon saw things fall apart and after a terrible run of form he was let go.
Judging by his combined Manchester XI he did for Sky Sports today ahead of the Manchester Derby this weekend, it is easy to see some of his managerial failings.
That's right, he did leave out David Silva and Sergio Aguero. Instead he went with Marouane Fellaini in place of Silva and instead of going two up top included Ashley Young on the left-wing instead.
He then made the truly odd decision of picking Antonio Valencia at right-back ahead of Pablo Zabaleta, widely considered to be the best right-back in the league.
To top it all off he went with Joe Hart. No doubt a good keeper, but nowhere near the standard that David De Gea has recently been exhibiting.
Perhaps he chose on recent form, or by random, who knows?
However he chose the team, it is certainly not the best XI you could pick from the talent available from both Manchester United and Manchester City.
