    Apparently had one of the largest budgets in League 2 this season. When he took over the job at Mansfield just over a year ago, they were a win away from an automatic promotion spot. His first 8 matches saw them pick up 4 points as they tumbled out of the playoffs and finished 8th. This season they were 2nd with 3 games to go, then lost the lot and then missed out in the playoffs on penalties, deservedly so. Strange to think they were 1 game away from automatic promotion, then it all went wrong.

    Barmy? Maybe, but clearly Mansfield have big ambitions and don't believe he'll get them over the line. Sounds familiar!

    I think it might have been the biggest budget, and they're going to lose some of their big players such as CJ Hamilton. Notice Ben Turner was playing, he put in some crunching tackles!

    They were saying on the commentary of Sunday's match that Flitcroft promised the Mansfield fans promotion this time last year, so they can say that he failed by the standards he set himself.

    Ben Turner was excellent. They got him a free from Burton last January and I think he's out of contract now. Will do a good job for some team in Div 2 next year.
