please don’t take me for a FlipFlop lover, agree 100% with JR, he failed however the squad was/is so close to a promotion team it just required a quality experienced manager to come in, that’s the bit i’m frustrated with youth, so close and we go and appoint a rookie within seconds of sacking him, absolutely the wrong call, that’s what’s so bloody frustrating
We needed an experienced manager instead of DF?? Who would you suggest
Flitcroft is a very good experienced manager at our level and has promotion experience. Absolutely wrong decision to get rid. Needed time to fully build his squad. That first season after events left can't count.. idiotic to suggest he failed twice.
One more season without all of Evans deadwood flitcroft had sat in the stands and that saved money towards proper players he wanted and we would of been top of the league imo
Just out of curiosity, if DF had got promoted with Evan's squad, would you give the credit for that success to Evans or Flitcroft.
It wasn't Evans squad was it, you are just reinventing history now. In fact, it was the players DF didn't want that Evans signed that hamstrung us - we were only clear of them this summer. We know you hated DF, we know you wanted him sacked after a couple of months, but you are just making stuff up to try and fit your argument. Now the DF out brigade are saying "it was the right decision to remove DF but we appointed the wrong man" when most of us at the time said no matter who you appoint a new manager will need time to build his own squad, his own style his own identity.
Okay then by that logic, had they not raspberried up, would it have been Murray's success?
You can't have it both ways. If a manager can't take the blame for the duds signed by a previous manager, they can't take credit for the good ones signed either.
Flitcroft, talked crap & failed to keep a side that was efficient if unspectacular and was in reasonable form, to just keep doing what they had been doing.
The following year, the owners pandered to his every whim & he raspberried up again with all his own toys. There may have been some Evans duds in the building, but they never got near the first 11.
It's worth remembering too the DFs only success as a manager, came at a club that had a spending model that took them to oblivion.
