JFK: Just love it up here

JFK: Just love it up here

With the crunch match against Stoke looming, JFK has gone on record to express his delight at not only being back in the game, but at a club which has as much character as he does! Speaking to the Ronnie, Joe said:

'It was a massive task. People said 'you are going in at the wrong time'. They were on the floor when I arrived here. They were second from bottom, they had lost quite a few games to teams they should have been capable of beating. They had been beaten at home by Hull and Blackburn, so there were six points dropped. We need to address that and get those back elsewhere.

Since I have come back, I have enjoyed it. I have had a tough time, there's no question about that. I know I am not the most popular, I understand that, but you get on with life and it is up to me to prove I am the man that's right for the job. Come the end of the season, I might be celebrating, who knows?

When we think we have got a good result, all the other scenarios have not worked in our favour. But good luck to those teams who are scrapping the same as we are. It will continue to go on until one team decides to win three on the spin and you see a big picture change.'
