I’m not concerned. I was concerned after four days of taking the job, but I’m not concerned now.”The league table doesn’t lie after 10 games, we just haven’t been good enough. It’s a wonderful club and the fans and owners have given me lots of patience, but we’ve lost our way and something has to change.”I’ve had nine months to turn things around and, for one reason or another, I’ve not done it. It’s been tough on me and my family, but I just feel sad. It’s a great club but it just hasn’t worked out.”I couldn’t have given it any more, I’ve given it everything I can.” last_img read more
