December 20th 2003

A bad tempered top of the table affair boiled over with the second half sending off of U's striker Julian Alsop
at Huddersfield's Alfred McAlpine stadium. Town took the lead through Jon Stead before ten man U's
equalised with an effort from sub. Mark Rawle with 18 minute left on the clock.

There was still time for future U's midfielder Lee Fowler to see red in the last minute as United remained
in top spot under Ian Atkins.

U's: Woodman; McNiven, McCarthy, Bound, Crosby, Robinson; Whitehead, Hunt, Wanless; Alsop, Basham
subs: Ashton, Rawle, Hackett, Steele, Brown

Town: Phil Senior; Nathan Clarke, Efe Sodje, Steve Yates, Nat Brown; Anthony Lloyd, Paul Scott, Lee Fowler,
Danny Schofield; Jon Stead, Andy Booth

Att: 9,368
Cracking header by Rawle, as I recall, right in the top corner.

I also recall KY nursing a particularly bad hangover.

So bad that I could have sworn we lost the game! Alsop was sent off for apparently elbowing a Hudds player, and all the away fans present just assumed he'd been an idiot and done it (well it was Julian Alsop). But in fact replays showed the ref had been conned and he never touched him.

December 21st 1980

U's chairman Bill Reeves and his board agree to terminate the contract of U's manager Bill Asprey
after defeat at Millwall two days earlier. United appointed Ian Greaves on December 23rd but Greaves
did not sign a contract with the club.

December 21st 2008

On this cold Sunday morning nine years ago, United chairman Kelvin Thomas announced the appointment of Chris Wilder
as the club's new manager. Wilder, 41, had been assistant manager to Alan Knill at Bury for the previous five months.
Wilder replaced Darren Patterson who was sacked three weeks earlier. Wilder was preferred to the vastly
experienced John Ward.
