The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

chair­man Dar­ragh Ma­cAn­thony has played a blin­der with his look- be­fore-you-leap ap­proach to ap­point­ing a new manager. Af­ter re­plac­ing the sacked Dar­ren Fer­gu­son, care­taker boss Dave Robert­son at won each of his three games at the helm. Nor­mally, that would be enough to con­vince a chair­man of his sta­tus as the Sec­ond Com­ing and whip out a three-year con­tract,but Ma­cAn­thony is wisely keep­ing his ink dry.

As we have seen in the Cham­pi­onship with Kit Sy­mons and Ful­ham, an in­stant re­ac­tion doesn't al­ways trans­late to a long-term im­prove­ment.

If three wins be­comes six or nine, that’s a dif­fer­ent story. But right now, it means only that the play­ers needed a change.

Man­agers al­ways ask for time to get things right – it is only right a chair-man should take his time to trust them.
