On the form from two years ago, without a doubt. Last years form, he’s done well to land Barnet.

Good luck Matt. Played superbly under DF, struggled like most last season under clueless management. Barnet have a good player, he will do well there.

On the form under DF (like Pearce) far better than any centre halves we have now. Barnet have got themselves a good signing.

clogger's at his proper level now, I reckon he's waited for an offer from a fl club and got none.

I can’t recall a player who has two polar opposite seasons in my time watching Stags. Very good under DF to a complete liability under JD and GC.

Forget him being a complete failure as he was here but why do we think certain players played better under Flitcroft than other managers?

Please enlighten us Dan.
Could it be they fitted into the system he played ? Was it because they liked him as a manager ? Or maybe he had the ability to get the best out of players?

Whatever your thoughts on him, it can’t be denied that he and Futcher organised the best defence in League a Two. He also got the best out of Jacob Mellis.

It's a good question. I think fitness is the answer. I can't be denied that Flitcroft's side was the fittest we've ever had. Last season was probably the least fittest we've ever had. That lead to stupid mistakes and late lunging tackles and being a second slower than the other side. How many times did that ring true last season.

The thing with fitness is people mention the side of the 70s having pints and cigarettes and still being able to win. Well the opposition was doing the same too.

The increased fitness meant that we were a second faster than the opposition and enabled the centre backs to calmly take a touch and bring the ball out. Lots of times Pearce would control the ball and get past the 2 attackers and advance with the ball at his feet. Last season we just "got a touch to it" and decided our job was done.

He wasn't a complete failure, he was part of our incredible defence in his first season under DF.

The hours Df put in with the team on the training ground really showed at times, but then again league two players showing why they are league two also showed a lot.
That team were going the extra mile most weeks but caved in and thought they'd won it towards the end.

Heard it from a couple people at the club and people from swindon that the training under Df was a level above and certain things didn't stop until they had perfected something.

I know were all still gutted at that season but the management team and that squad were the best we've seen for a long time and now were miles off, they even got Mellis playing the best he's ever played. All if buts and maybe's now so hopefully we can get back to that standard one day.

DF definitely got the best out of quite a lot of players, CJ was a big one, it baffles me how he still managed to put in all that work, and managed to end the season with absolutely raspberry all to show for it. A lot of fans clearly still have a hangover from that gigantic self inflicted failure, you’ve gotta move on!

I think Preston can do a job at L2, and he was part of the best defence in the league not that long ago. But I do think he was the weakest link in it, and last season he was a bigger liability than most. Best of luck to him.

I think Dan was referring to DF being a failure, rather than Preston.

Dan really doesn't like David Flitcroft, & doesn't turn down any opportunity to let us know.
