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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
