'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Flicker Shakers Candidate

David Flitcroft is emerging as a front runner for the vacant hotseat at Gigg Lane, Flitcroft is known for his liking for modern coaching methods and tactics having served a good apprenticeship under Keith Hill. Flitcroft is 3/1 for the role, with former Red and current Bury caretaker manager Peter Shirtliff 11/10 favourite for the job.



38 year old Flitcroft spent 3 years at Gigg Lane and was a fans favourite at gigg lane, making 100 appearences before moving to play non league football.



Having spent 6 years working alongside Keith Hill it would be difficult for flicker to leave but will the offer of the 'gaffers' Job be too great for him to refuse?



Bury fans have been quoted stating:



Flitcroft fits the bill perfectly, young enthusiastic and knows the restraints of the club'.



If Flitcroft is the answer god knows what the question is.A disruptive influence who disgracefully went out of his way to undermine an innexperienced manager during his time at Bury,as far as I can see his main contribution to the 'Hillcroft' partnership has been limited to carrying the balls and cones while Hill got on with the coaching and managing.Andy Morrell would be a far more rational option,he's actually run a football club,fairly successsfully too,unlike Flitcroft who would probably struggle to run a bath'

Well the Bury fan stating that Flitcroft could not run a bath!! I know he would be good at flushing the toilet and lets face it what does Gigg Lane and the personnel look like? A bath or a toilet??

Flicker and Hill come as a package, there is no way he would move anyway. Fans of teams like Bury live in dream land. They expect to get ex Premier League managers and won't entertain the idea of giving a young coach a chance.

sky are reporting Dowie as the top candidate. Though I am sure they are just increasing the profile of the sky pundits!
