JIMMY HAS GOT US ALL JUMPING
JIMMY Floyd Hasselbaink has already shown he is the best man to lead Northampton, according to wing-back George Smith.
The Dutchman has made an immediate impact at the Cobblers, winning his first two games in charge by seeing off Doncaster 1-0 last weekend and Portsmouth 3-1 on Tuesday before yesterday’s clash with Southend.
And Smith, frozen out under previous boss Justin Edinburgh, insists the atmosphere has completely changed at the club since former QPR manager Hasselbaink arrived.
The 21-year-old started the first two games of the new era and insists the club have made the right decision to replace Edinburgh.
“He is a man for detail and that is what we needed,” said Smith. “We needed detail, we needed organisation, we needed, like we saw last Saturday, to be resolute.
“We went a goal in front (against Doncaster), but as everybody has seen this season when we have gone a goal behind we have kind of caved in a little bit.
“That won’t happen now. The gaffer won’t let that happen. It is just more organised.
“Jimmy’s got us more organised, resolute, and every session when he came in was about what is going to be happening on a Saturday.”
