Artell: "Every Team Is A Work In Progress"

11 September 2018

David Artell says that every club in football is a ‘work in progress’. The Crewe boss has been pleased with his players’ response following the 6-0 defeat at Colchester United.

He believes we should have won the game at Carlisle United but bounced back superbly to beat Macclesfield Town 3-0 in the league and Tranmere 4-3 in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Now he is aiming for a third straight win with our trip to Cheltenham coming up at the weekend.

The Crewe boss told the club’s website: “We have deserved more points than we have got. We didn’t play particularly well at Newport but still shouldn’t have lost.

“We certainly didn’t deserve to lose at Carlisle when we were the better side on the day. We didn’t play as well as we did at Carlisle at Tranmere, but ended up winning the game. That’s football. It is a results based business and the aim is to play well enough for a large period of the game, so you end up getting what you deserve.

“Every team is a work in progress. It doesn’t matter if you are Guardiola at the Premier League champions or Alex McLeish with Scotland or me in League Two. Whatever level you are at, you want to get better and improve.

“Injuries don’t help but in a strange way we cope with them better because we are used to them. It is not as though it has come as a shock because it has happened to us over the last few years. It is not something we haven’t encountered before and you just have to get on with it.”
