Predecessor Graham Westley oversaw a huge turnover of playing staff last pre-season but the extensive changes failed to bed in and he paid with his job in February.

Grayson is eager to do business early and believes players in the lower leagues need time establish an understanding, ruling out another Westley-style splurge.

"When it comes to changing things around, big rotation of the squad is a luxury which only the top teams in the country have," he told the Lancashire Evening Post.

"Players at the top level settle into things very quickly.

"With no disrespect to players in League One, they need to be playing on a regular basis to get the best out of them. They need to be working as units, understanding what the lad alongside them is going to be doing."

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.
