Yes, you read that right! Phil Brown is currently being interviewed for a job at National League South side – Oxford City. Phil Brown is looking to be the successor for former manager David Oldfield who decided to jump ship and join Weymouth.
Brown was sacked by Southend United earlier this season whilst they sat in the relegation zone if the National League facing 3 relegations in 3 years. He was sacked after a 0-4 battering at Roots Hall by Chesterfield.
Brown is more so well known for his time at Hull City. He guided them to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history. He won manager of the month for September thanks to a great run of form.
Things then went downhill and then when away at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City he found his team 4-0 down at half-time. He then famously conducted his team talk on the pitch; they went on to lose 5-1. He was fined a lot in his time as manager for msiconduct but then Hull managed to survive on the last day by one point to Newcastle's
expense. He then went on the pitch with a microphone and sang a song to the Hull City fans. He was sacked the following season as the Tigers were relegated. He had a few stints at different football league clubs such as Preston North End, Southend United and Swindon Town.
Oxford City have been having a great season under David Oldfield climbing up to third place. Oldfield was then lured away by National League Weymouth so now City are looking for a replacement. They have been on a good run and the question is can Phil Brown’s experience guide them to glory?
