Next manager

Recommended Posts

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.

When you think some very quick decisions need taking on Monday re who to sign on loan etc it’s probably right that someone with experience is taking them.

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.

He might have been working behind the scenes for a while?

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

Happy with Hillcroft. 

Strategy not sentiment. 

They tick the boxes we need as pointed out above. 

Might even get a tune out of Buckley.

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

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

They managed Buckley as a youngster at Rochdale. Unlikely but if anyone can then it's probably them!

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
