FOOTBALL RUMOURS: Mourinho’s Manchester hell, Rooney chases record, Giggs for Wigan? Forest boss could go in takeover
Today’s rumours from the world of football . . .
Ilkeston boss Paul Holland took a page out of the SAS handbook this week by playing mind games with his squad before putting them through a hellish training session.
The Times reports today that Manchester United stars have been shocked by Jose Mourinho’s approach and training methods.
Blidworth Welfare, of the Central Midlands League South, were handed a tantalising home draw against neighbours AFC Mansfield, from the Northern Counties East League Premier Division when the draw was made for the second round proper of the FA Vase today.
Former Robins boss Paul Hurst has been named manager of League One strugglers Shrewsbury Town.
Malachi Lavelle-Moore’s stoppage time winner cemented a fourth win in five league games as Ilkeston grabbed three points in a thriller at Owen Street.
Paul Holland remained in philosophical mood despite seeing Ilkeston’s run of victories end on Tuesday night.
Ilkeston’s three match winning run was ended at Croft Park as Blyth claimed three points, however the Robins will be full of high spirits despite defeat.
Paul Holland revelled in the joy of two wins in four days and believes there is no reason that run can’t be extended as Ilkeston FC began to climb the table this week.
This wasn’t the most spectacular three points Ilkeston will ever gain but how they were accrued will matter little to most of those present at the NMG on Tuesday night.
