The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

POOR Greg Ab­bott up at Carlisle. Played three, lost three. Scored one, con­ceded 13. It’s about as grim a start as you could hope for.

When you lose games early in the sea­son, you can’t help but look over your shoul­der and he’ll be feel­ing pretty down.

The fact is, we all get the sack at some stage. That’s life as a man­ager. Greg just has to put it out of his mind, con­cen­trate on keep­ing strong men­tally and rely on the char­ac­ter of his play­ers not to get too down.

Any­one can play well and sound con­fi­dent when you’re win­ning. But when things aren’t go­ing well, no­body talks, no­body re­ally wants the ball.

Good pros want the ball re­gard­less and Greg will just be hop­ing he’s got enough of them in his squad to pull Carlisle through this patch.
