MK Dons Confirm Harford Appointment
Thursday, 17th May 2012 17:18
The MK Dons have confirmed Mick Harford’s appointment as assistant manager to Karl Robinson, as reported by TWTD last Wednesday. At the end of April, Blues boss Paul Jewell said he was hoping to add Harford to his scouting staff full-time, the 53-year-old having worked part-time for Town during the latter part of the season.
Harford says he is delighted to be taking on the role which became vacant after former Town assistant boss and coach John Gorman retired: "I am absolutely thrilled Karl has given me the opportunity to work with him and assist him in managing MK Dons.
"It is an honour to follow in John Gorman's footsteps and I am excited at the prospect of joining Karl and the team. Karl has the same football ethos as me and having seen the team on Tuesday night I feel very positive about the squad."
The MK Dons, who lost to Huddersfield in this year's League One play-off semi-final, have also added ex-Arsenal and England man Ian Wright to their staff as part-time first-team coach.

A Plea For Patience by Edmunds5
One of the biggest things I have noticed in recent times and in particular throughout this season is the feeling of inevitability that a manager will lose his job following a run of poor results or just one or two heavy beatings.

What Have We Learnt? by Pabbingtons
I had originally planned to pen this blog last week before the Birmingham game. It was to be full of praise for Mick McCarthy and the team, but that, looking forward, my original slight concern with his appointment remained, how would Mick develop our football, would we just be hoof ball but with better players?
The Birth of the German Masterplan by Bluetaff
Proper preparation and planning prevents p*** poor performance, the seven Ps – a buzz phrase thrown about with abandon and used as a punchline in meeting rooms all over the English speaking world. I have used it myself many a time but what is pertinent and what is padding?
