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.
