Artell: "I'm Doing Everything I Can"

17 October 2017

David Artell says he and his staff are doing everything possible to turn our season around. The Alex boss was disappointed that we couldn’t build on a morale boosting 1-0 win over Stevenage with another positive result at Yeovil at the weekend.

The Alex boss is now looking for a positive reaction against Notts County this evening and he says he has coped with criticism and stick throughout his career in football.

Artell told “I will continue to work as hard as I can. If that falls short I can still look myself in the mirror because I wouldn’t be able to do anymore.

“I had four hours kip as I went over the Yeovil game and planned for Notts County. After training, I have been to St. George’s Park for a coaching course and not really spoken to the wife or kids. I know I am doing everything I can.

“Keyboard warriors or those in the stand criticising me has never affected me. In fact, it inspires me.

“I am used to it. I have been in this game for 20 years and I have heard it all. It doesn’t matter if it was 1,200 at Accrington or 50,000 at Wembley, I have heard everything. Your slow, fat, ugly, this that. Your wife is this and that. It is part of the game and you rise above it.”
