Some interesting responses on here to the latest development. I'd like to add some context. In the past TWENTY YEARS we have only achieved a top 7 finish in the league... ONCE. This was under MA

Check out wiki.  He's run the family business with his brother and father for 15 years and has his own football academy.  He's not been "just" a player and manager.  In view of the amount of crit

The meltdown on here is laughable.  Please can someone tell me the success we have had in appointing a manager since Micky left? None. Flitcroft being appointed DoF shows our long term visio

Young progressive manager Adam Murray who has been credited with some of Mansfield's best signings in years, teamed up with Micky Adams DoF who has been out of the game for years and was last found looking after Market Harborough.

What could go wrong?

If it’s a DOF and head coach, what happens to the manager bets??

  • Caretaker and interim managers will not count unless they complete at least 10 competitive games for club managers and 4 games for international managers and they will then be deemed the permanent manager.
  • Should a club appoint a director of football this will not count in the settlement of permanent manager markets.
  • In the event that a club change the structure of their management team and do not call the appointed individual first team manager, Sky Bet will settle the market on the individual who is responsible for selecting the first team. In the event of any ambiguity over the appointment, Sky Bet may determine using its reasonable discretion how to settle the market based on all the information available to it at the relevant time.

DOF model would make no sense. Can’t afford to pay a manager 130k, (right so, don’t want to be ripped off when the league average is 80k), but we can afford to pay a DOF and coach? So either we’re spending more money, or the coach/DOF are that bad they’re commissioning less than the league’s average wage. A nonsense.

Maybe Flitcroft wasn't to do with money. Maybe he didn't want to work under a DOF... 

I'm spreading my bets & think one of the below scenarios:

1) Carol has paid Flitcroft what he wants (if it was money related)

2) Micky Adams DOF with a young protégé as first team coach (Adam Murray)

3) Carol has pulled the coup of the century & bagged us one of the big boys on the sly... Cowleys/Paul Cook

Anything could happen tomorrow. Let's wait & see!

A potentially huge day for PVFC.

Sweet dreams!

Interesting to see, our usual leaky club has been pretty tight on this one so no real rumours, even bookies aren’t giving a real favourite with McGreal slightly ahead of Murray.

Wasn’t there rumours at one point Micky has shown an interest which leads to the DOF potential? Would he have the time though with his business? Or would it be a more part time role potentially...

That said is Theo back in on the request of McGreal who may be the man? Why was Legge back in? Some possible influence from the new man if it wasn’t something agreed Sunday?

Flitcroft seems to have drifted with the bookies although have to wonder why Murray’s odds have slashed..

McGreal as DOF and Pugh as first team coach? 

Heart sinks...

Let’s wait and see. 

McGreal is a head coach not a recruiter. Pugh is neither.

If it is a director of football then the only one I can think of is Micky Adams. Maybe it could be Brian Horton, but yeah anyone else would be completely out of left field.

It can’t be a director of football surely? A fourth division club with a director of football? No thanks. If she’s got the money to be making appointments like this id hope she would use that to either back a manager with a few quid to improve our awful squad in the summer or just appoint a decent gaffer who wants a few quid more than what Askey was earning. 
 

strange timing to come out on a Sunday announcing a press conference also isn’t it? Was it a case of saturdays absolute stinker forced her arm and she got home that night and rung mcgreal saying the jobs yours can you get here Monday or has she given Flitcroft what he wants and that’s back on?
