You've got to see the humour in a Flitcroft appointment.

Having failed with Mansfield he still ends up getting promoted whilst they languish for another season in League 2 despite the Bentley and swimming pool selfies.

Please let it be so.

Ironically enough, Doncaster were also sponsored by One Call for a period of time as well because the then Doncaster Chairman and Radford were/are good friends and I think Radford might have been involved at Doncaster before?

Has to be Moore, Flitcroft his only serious rival. Both have win percentages over 40, Moore's nearly 50 (which shows what state WBA are in to move him on). The other two shouldn't be let loose in the Northern Premier.

WBA were 11/4 to get promoted at the start of last season, with a very strong squad. They were expected to go for automatic promotion so his win ratio of 48% was an irrelevance.

At the time of his sacking they'd just lost at home to Sheffield United and been thrashed at Leeds - meaning that automatic promotion had been blown, and he got the boot in the next game, a home draw with Ipswich. Hardly surprising.

he still had them high up in the playoffs though, which also carries a promotion place... derby were 6 points behind them, and finished six points behind them. both teams failed in the playoffs - now one 1st season manager is at chelsea, the other is fighting david flitcroft for a job. fine margins.

It won't be Flitcroft. Probably either Appleton or Moore.
