David Flitcroft: Eyeing improved fortunes

A 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough was only the Reds' second success in 12 Sky Bet Championship games this season and lifted them off the bottom of the table.

"We've talked about the performances lately, but I know that you're judged on results," he said.

"We kept them quiet and kept them at bay. To have a no-fear approach and play with the detail that we planned is pleasing.

"As a football coach, you're always building a jigsaw.

"We've done a lot of things wrong and made a lot of mistakes early on in the season, but we're making that right with hard work."

Flitcroft confirmed that former Celtic winger Paddy McCourt was withdrawn soon after he scored due to illness.

"He started sloppy," Flitcroft added.

"He didn't seem right - certainly for the first 20 minutes. He was sick on the pitch, so we had to get him off.

"There's nothing really like him in the Championship. He's got a sway of the body that's so unpredictable."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
