No pills at the U’s

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

COLCH­ESTER fans will have a bit­ter pill to swal­low if they’re ex­pect­ing the im­mi­nent sack­ing of un­der­fire man­ager Tony Humes.

While fel­low League One clubs Peterborough and Don­caster swung the axe af­ter just six games, U’s chair­man Rob­bie Cowl­ing has no in­ten­tion of fol­low­ing suit.

In an en­ter­tain­ing state­ment on the club’s web­site, Cowl­ing said: “I know how painful de­feat is and … like most pains, you just want a pill to make it go away and, in football, the over-the-counter pill of choice is to sack the man­ager. “…I find it some­what of­fen­sive when I re­ceive a let­ter from a sup­porter ask­ing me to sack the man­ager. I have re­ceived such letters for ev­ery one of my man­agers and they usu­ally fol­low the same pat­tern where their first re­quest is that I grow a pair and then use my new found courage to dis­miss some­one. “...There are no ‘sack the man­ager’ pills in my cab­i­net and the last time I checked, I al­ready had a pair.”

FAITH: Cowl­ing
