Sticking together

25 September 2013

David Weir believes stability will be the key ingredient to United reviving their fortunes in the weeks ahead.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to Molineux to face high-flying Wolves, the Gaffer remarked: "The most successful team to date in League One, Leyton Orient, have had a lot of stability and at any level that counts for a lot.

"We have been building here since the summer and changing the team regularly, hence a bit of instability, but that is no excuse for the results we have had. The fans demand we win matches consistently and we haven't done that enough, so that is an obvious area for improvement but we are moving in the right direction in terms of performance.

"It is crucial that we continue to stick together in the coming weeks, during runs like we are enduring at the moment you find a lot out about yourself and the people around you.

"Everyone I have met or spoken to remains positive but I completely understand those who are angered by recent results, that is the emotion of football and I don't except supporters to enjoy losing.

"The majority of people in and around the club, not just the players and staff, can see what we are trying to achieve and when they acknowledge what we are doing it gives me great belief moving forward.

"We are putting building blocks in place and I just hope the doubters out there will give us time to turn it around because that remains my sole intention at the present time.

"A lot has changed since the summer, we won't and can't justify losing five games on the bounce, but I hope there is still a real trust in what we are working on."
