Next manager

Very happy with Hill and Flitcroft. Living in Rochdale now seen them quite a few times when he was in charge. Tries to play it on the deck and will get players going out knowing exactly what's expected of them. Might even get a tune out out Buckley again if he gets signed.

Before we got Rioch I wanted Dario Gradi. I think we should go for him, as we need some better PR.

Lived in Rochdale for yonks and saw a lot of Dale over the years, especially in that spell that led to first promotion from L2, as has been said, never had any money but oversaw great work in the acad

Just heard from The Bantry Club on Derby St, that a well known local sauce company have been successful in their bid, with the proviso that the new manager plays five up front. It’s a clear case

We had about that number ready to sign before season. Not sure how many of those are still there now. Surely Hill will want a say?

Who knows but again that’s come from Flitcroft today so they’re obviously aware 

we will only see in time if Hill is happy with them all

On paper, a sensible appointment. Definitely “old-school” in his managerial approach but has a decent record in the lower leagues, will have plenty of contacts and knowledge about players at this level, and has a reputation for playing a pleasing style of football.

My only concern is that when poor results put him under pressure at Rochdale, he was prone to publicly criticising supporters. If pressure can do that to him there, then it certainly can here, and I hope he's learned and is ready to deal with that.

However, now that he's in he obviously has my full support and I wish him well. There will definitely be a couple more familiar accents around the place.

If it’s come from Flitcroft I assume Hill has ok’d it. Think we’ve only got 12 spots in the squad limit.

Dunno where he lives now, but all Daves family are top of Halliwell/Smithills folk. Lovely people too.

Apart from Gary who is an utter cunt from the brief dealings I’ve had with him anyway 

very happy with this appointment and the bonus for me is how quick FV have acted. They have sought to steady the ship ASAP so I’m liking this get shit done style

Happy with Hillcroft. 

Strategy not sentiment. 

They tick the boxes we need as pointed out above. 

Might even get a tune out of Buckley. 

If he gets a tune out of that useless bastard I'll be absolutely astonished. Not sure even Buckley knows how that can be achieved

Happy with this.

I just want a manager we can get behind.

someone I’d want alongside me in the trenches.

someone passionate.

someone who will give the centre back a bollocking if they don’t do what they are suppose to do.

someone who will give the ref what for.

 

thank fuck someone who won’t sit on his seat all match not knowing what the fuck they are doing

Interesting that Hill states the incomings aren’t there to ‘replace’ the young lads who have been playing 

weve all said all along that the perfect scenario will be some of the current lads with experience around them

Hill already knows his brief and what he will be working with
