Desperate to save himself from the axe, Glenn Roeder has sent an open message to Freddie Shepherd to give him some more time to sort out the club. Speaking following the Blackburn debacle he pleaded:
"I believe I will come good. What has happened here this year has been out of my control and I believe I deserve to go into a second season. We're all big boys and I understand the rules of football, but things have happened to me this year that have been out of my control. The people with any understanding will know the problems the club has had this year, which have been out of everybody's hands.
If, come Christmas, we're not where we ought to be - in that top six or within a point or two of the top six - and we have one or two injured and not 12 injured, I would accept the questions that are being asked now. I feel I deserve to go through the summer. Judge me in a normal season, without those injuries, around Christmas time.'
That old injuries chestnut again Glenn. How come with four players injured yesterday, only one of which would probably have played, we got roundly trounced by a Blackburn side at home who had spent a fraction of the money on their whole team that we have on Michael Owen and had four players injured themselves, one of which would have played?
Get out of the kitchen if you can`t handle the heat.
