Simon Davey for me!

What's your reasons ora fan? There's plenty on that list, what makes him the worst?

he just didnt have a clue, spent a unreal amount of money for a club our size and spent it on players that werent up to the task, like mosto for 500k it was also some of the worst football i've seen at oakwell in 20+ years of going. he was just the cheap option at the time but was definatly the wrong option. Look at the bad jobs he did at Hereford and Darlington as well.

I agree with what you say but some fans will argue that we have had worse as he did take us to a fa cup semi final at wembley.

Wow so much to say: machin@ tough times in the day! Anderson: Poor but brought Wilson with him! Wilson: Total football Guardiola of his day, well ok mabe Rogers when at Swansea. Hendrie: Lege as a player, not really cutting it as the gaffer. Bassett: Long Ball merchant after the football of wilson, I quality performance against Huddersfield. #Howdidwegettowembley? Spackman: Dogger Parkin, Hodges: Nope! Thordarson: Not Bad at that stage, tried and had knowledge of the game. Ritchie: Good Lad, worker well with what he had. Davey: Efforts before and after were better, how did he last? Robins: NEGATIVE, though you can only play with what you have? Hill: Average, what is the imput of flicker? Flicker great No2 or the Steve Clark of the championship when given a chance?
oldtimetyke
Interesting take on Flicker. They both say they come as a package but maybe he could become a manager in the not too distant future.
