The Pilgrims have shortlisted a number of candidates as they look for an experienced former manager to assist the manager at Home Park and Fletcher, 32, knows what sort of appointment the club need.

"There is no point bringing someone in whose ideals about football are punting it up to a big man and going from there because that's not how we want to play football," he told the Plymouth Herald.

"We want to keep the ball on the ground, if we can, and play when it's on. Someone with the same ideas as me would be a benefit.

"For me to get better, it's important to get the right person in."

Fletcher's side face a Devon derby at Exeter after the visit of York this weekend and the Wales international believes the set-up down at St James Park, where director of football Steve Perryman has been assisting manager Paul Tisdale since he arrived at the club in 2006, is a good example of what the Pilgrims need.

"It's important we get the right person in - someone who wants to be at the football club and gets on with the manager," he said.

"You have seen it at Exeter City with Steve Perryman and Paul Tisdale. They get on really well. I think it wouldn't work if they didn't get on."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
