Taking responsibility

16 September 2013

David Weir is under no illusions that results on the field must improve quickly.

Speaking after the loss at Carlisle, the Gaffer pulled no punches about the need for radical improvement.

He commented: "This is a fantastic football club, but I know it needs to be a successful one too. There has been a problem here for a number of years in that regard and I have come here to try and make that happen.

"I have my ideas and beliefs about how to achieve success, but, like everyone else, I will be judged on results.

"The pressure isn't growing because I put pressure on myself every week to be successful and when we aren't it is down to me to take responsibility."

Weir admitted a return of four points from seven fixtures isn't acceptable, adding:

"When things don't go your way you are obviously disappointed and frustrated and we have had that feeling in our stomach too much this season.

"We have to be open and frank in this situation. That has always been my way and when you are getting beat regularly it becomes even more important.

"I hate the feeling of being a loser and it is something that needs addressing quickly."
