No pills at the U’s
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.”
