Could well be. He's not exactly flushed with success.

It could be that both find their careers on the skids now?

How can anyone say that Flitcroft "has gone down the pan" when he has steered his club to the play-offs and for the supporters to be treated to a position largely in the top 3 for most of the season?
His chairman cannot be a footballing person because such a person would look to the longer term to keep a settled squad together and treat the supporters to another year where their team performs well as they have shown they can do. Getting into the play-offs is certainly not a failure.

Similar sentiment goes to Chris Haughton of Brighton. He has kept his team up for another money spinning season in the premiership and he still gets his P45. Again the chairman cannot be a footballing person.

Being a football manager must be the only job in the world where you can regularly get the sack and still have a great CV. What a peculiar game we support.

Its also very much like most senior management positons, you make a total b*alls up, get fired and rewarded with a a nice fat pay off.

Just had a quick look at the Mansfield forum. Most fans seem quite shocked that Flitcroft has been sacked, and reckon it's a cost cutting measure.
Like ourselves, they have gone for an untried Manager from within; I think their new man was Youth Team boss.

Hughton going from Brighton seems harsh. I'd have thought that keeping them up was about the most they could have expected. He always comes over as being a decent sort.

With a topic about hillcroft etc does anybody think that the last 2 seasons under Hill and Beech would have been much different if Hill and Flitcroft where the main two...

Its an interesting thought and something that my brother mentioned this morning..

He thinks that Hill would never have got a 5yr deal 2yrs or maybe 3 at most..
Then he said the would have thought dale would have finished more as comfy mid table table team not quite reaching the dizzy heights of the play offs...

Any thoughts......

My all time favourite Dale player Mr Lyndon Symmonds
