The one that will always stick in my throat is Wycombe away. We went there for a big game, with automatic promotion still feasible. We’d played Lincoln, Accrington and Mansfield (back in the days when they were quite good) inside the previous 10 days, so it was obvious that a bit of common sense would be needed.

Indeed, we were flagging after 70 but, no problem, he could’ve done all sorts of things... Mullin on for Norris or Richards to give us some legs and a nose for goal, Dunne on for Elsnik to shore up midfield, Ellis to give us some energy - anything. He just stood there with his fucking arms folded, probably dreaming up a fancy word to roll out in his post-match interview as the game slipped further and further out of our grasp.

We eventually inevitably conceded, and that was the turning point of the season. We’ve only won 3 games since.

Wycombe in my opinion was even more stupid because it was quite obvious we couldn't cope with Akinfenwa from pretty much minute 1.

Mind you, he still beat a good number of defenders to the ball to get the winner so maybe switching it around would have been futile.

Preston kept him very quiet at the CG. I don't think you can pin the disastrous end of season solely on his loss, but it was a major contributor.

Actually on that front I wonder had Flitcroft stayed whether we'd have made the playoffs. Should brown carried on with the 50/50 football we had played all season. Or would Flitcroft have slumped just as badly as brown did.

we'll never know

Doubt it but if we did it would only have been to have once again slumped to an expensive humiliation in front of the (very small) national TV audience
