Hill, who returned to take charge at Rochdale for a second time in January after being sacked by Barnsley, rebuilt his squad during the close season and is particular about the type of player he wants on board.

"We're developing and it's encouraging," he said after his side turned in arguably their best display of the season when drawing at home against Chesterfield at the weekend.

"I look at our plan and I'm really happy with it.

"The amount of agents that I've had one the phone asking me if I want to sign this player or that player.

"But I just don't see the point of any agent phoning up to recommend players because I don't feel as though I'd be doing the players justice.

"I've got to trust them and they've got to trust me with respect to our development as a team and as a football club for the future."

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.
