So the scum appoint a failed reserve team manager who found a bit of joy briefly at Swansea and one good season as Leeds assistant.
(Who'll go on to be a success now I've worded it like that.)

According to this months When Saturday Comes magazine Paul Simpson, who recently managed the England team who won the Under 20 World Cup, just pipped David Flitcroft to the job. Apparently Dan Ashworth from the FA who gave Simpson the job has invited Flitcroft to come and observe some training sessions. Maybe whilst there he can make contact and snap up some bright young things on loan to supplement the battle hardened old pros he has recruited so far to get us out of League 2.

Flitcroft said upon his appointment that he was close to getting the U21 job but lost out to Simpson purely on experience of playing at international level. (Simpson played at U21 level for England).

"Fools," said I, "You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming

And doing pre season on grass rather than 3G looking at the latest photos. Might mean we have a fit team and eliminate the ridiculous amount of injuries we had, good to at least look a professional outfit again.

Does it make that much difference? Genuine question.

Depends who you ask - reports provide evidence either way at the moment.  Some evidence of higher rates of impact style injuries (twists etc.) but less strains I think.  Rugby manages to play entire games on it these days, so can't be too bad.  I imagine it is a little odd moving between the two surfaces though.

I find it does especially as a keeper i find the impact when falling on 3G much harder than on natural grass as there is always a bit of give as the pitch is aerated, watered and what not. Also you tend to wear AG moulded studs on 3G which you don't wear on grass so when you step on to grass especially on softer pitches where you have metal studs on it feels completely different. Could easily see players picking up strains moving from one surface to the other and knowing last seasons players they probably kept running into the solid metal fence that surround the 3G pitch.

It was a while back now, so may have improved, but my biggest gripe was the little black rubber pellets.  They'd get everywhere and be annoyingly distracting.  Like playing on a beach and immediately having sand everywhere imaginable.

my knees hurt more after playing on 3G. HTH, probably not, I suspect our squad may be slightly fitter than me

I wouldn't count on that....

I gave up 5 a side as the 3G pitch fucked my knees and hips every time we played.

Yep, anecdotal at best but I find 3G much tougher on the joints than grass too.
