David Flitcroft: Steep learning curve since Keith Hill's departure

Two Chris Dagnall goals earned the home side a well-deserved victory over Leeds and maintained coach Flitcroft's 100% record since Keith Hill was sacked.

Barnsley's attempts to attract Terry Butcher and Sean O'Driscoll have failed, leaving Flitcroft as odds-on favourite to land the job permanently.

He said: "I have found out a lot about myself in the last 10 days. It could change the way I look at myself for the rest of my career.

"When you lead a group and they are all playing for you, it's different. I'm not going to walk out on that group of players. If I get sacked, I get sacked, but I've been taught well and you don't walk out on people."

Of the game he said: "As a coach, you look at the performance. I told them at half-time I was excited about it. We overran and dominated Leeds.

"I wanted to spend some time with the players and celebrate with them after the game, especially someone like Chris Dagnall. I worked with him at Rochdale where he got 24 in a season for us.

"I picked some music and put the goals to it and showed him before kick-off. He epitomises what it's like to be a Barnsley fan. He's hard working and he has that ethic they want."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
