Artell Warns Of Hairdryer Treatment If Anyone Thinks Season Is Over

11 March 2019

Boss will take a page out of Sir Alex Ferguson's book of management if anyone thinks season is done.

David Artell has promised the trademark ‘hairdryer’ treatment to any of his players or staff who believe that our season is over. Crewe Alexandra do face an almighty task to break into the top seven now but Artell says that there is still plenty to play for in the remaining ten games.

The Alex boss says that personal pride should be enough to see us fighting for as many of the 30 points on offer as we can acquire.

Crewe travel to Cambridge United on Tuesday aiming to bounce back from three successive defeats and Artell says that he didn’t see the recent run we have been on coming.Crewe had gone seven games unbeaten.

David told the club’s official website: “I didn’t see a run of three defeats coming because we had been on a great run. We have been on the wrong side of the line in the last three games and we have to turn it around again as soon as possible.

“If there is any players or staff who think the season is over then they can think again. They will have some words, spoken loudly from close proximity if they do. It is not over by a long stretch and there is plenty to play for.

“As usual we will look to win every game we play in. Their personal pride will determine that anyway. They have to have that mentality in training every day. It is an opportunity for them all to learn and develop. That never stops and it doesn’t stop.

He added: “Professional pride should be there every day regardless of where we are in the league and they all want to well.”
