Clubs Have To Stick With Bosses

18 October 2013

Steve says clubs have to shown more patience to put plans into practice

Steve Davis fully appreciates that he is a at Football Club that provides managers with time to see their planning come to fruition and in the wake of the sackings of eight managers already this season, he hopes that clubs will decide to stick with their men more often in times of adversity.

Every Football Club has a dip in form and whilst a new manager coming in may provide an initial lift, backing a manager over an extended period of time usually breeds success through stability.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Every club is different and how they run their football club is entirely up to them. Take Manchester United for example, they will stick with their man. They will give David Moyes the chance to establish his own ideas on the squad.

“There won’t be an over-reaction from those who run that club and David will be there for a long time because they back their managers. They stick by people and so does the board at Crewe.

“Of course, anything can happen over time and when results didn’t go for Steve (Holland) or Gudjon (Thordarson) they decided to make a change, so it can happen here. I know I have the luxury of being able to plan ahead. We think about this season, next season and the season after in terms of players and what we need.

“I know I am in a privileged position here and the board have been very supportive from the day I took over.

He added: “There is always pressure because it is a results business but every manager puts pressure on themselves to do well. Every manager wants to be successful.”
