David Flitcroft: Eyeing backroom recruits

Flitcroft has barely had time to get his feet under the table at the JD Stadium following his appointment as the Shakers' new manager on Monday night.

The ex-Barnsley boss admitted it was unlikely he would be bringing his former number two Micky Mellon along with him in his new position because he had aspirations of succeeding Flitcroft at Oakwell on a permanent basis.

Instead, his right-hand man could be Torquay's assistant Chris Brass, who was part of the coaching set-up with Bury when Alan Knill was in charge.

Brass and Knill now work together at the Gulls but Flitcroft is keen to break the axis up and return the former to the Shakers.

"We weren't far off on Friday but we felt for both clubs Brassy had got to be alongside Knilly (on Saturday)," he said.

"We can pick this baton up on Monday and we can really start working and putting the hard miles in."

Another man who could be helping Flitcroft bed in at Bury is Wigan goalkeeper Mike Pollitt.

The 41-year-old spent time on loan with Barnsley earlier in the season but Flitcroft envisages him taking up a goalkeeper coaching role.

"We're still negotiating with Wigan," he added.

"We've got other people we're looking at it, it's definitely not a done deal."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
