- Mansfield Town
Like conker says he did have us playing great football and it really split the fans in 2 over whether to keep him or not, I fell on the side to get rid of him and whereas I stick with the decision and believe it was right at the time - I do wonder what could have happened last season.Both our NL and L2 promotions were via the play-off finals and cutting it fine. Although Mansfield were one of the best footballing L2 opponents during the previous season, it doesn’t sound like Flitcroft will be temperamentally suited to the Rovers job.
I think if he had a decent assistant with him - he always had ben futcher and whereas he wasn’t bad I don’t think he was the experienced voice I believed flitcroft needed/needs. Maybe that could be the difference between him getting over the line, as it’s like he’s scared of the last quarter of the season.
