The Tykes drew at Huddersfield on the last day to ensure that they stayed up and Peterborough were relegated to League One.

Flitcroft, whose contract expires this summer, has indicated that he would like to remain at the South Yorkshire club, but it appears that a deal is not as near as indicated by managing director Don Rowing.

"It is our intention to offer David the (long-term) position and David has intimated he would like to take the job. We have just got to dot the Is and cross the Ts now," Rowing had said.

Flitcroft has instead stated that a new contract will require plenty more negotiations.

"We are so behind the eight-ball in our preparations and planning as we have been really focusing on the job in hand," Flitcroft said.

"There is a lot of work to do and negotiations to make sure we have the right structure. I don't want to be scratching (around) like this team has done for the last five or six years.

"I want a bright future for Barnsley Football Club."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. 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.
