The manager has a message for the fans - [Echo]
“It would be to say thank you for the support at the back end of last season, because they [the fans] got us over the line, they were a huge help, no doubt, and it was something I had never felt before and the players hadn’t.
“Hopefully there is an understanding we don’t expect that this year. We know we will get huge support because that is what the fans bring to this club. But the onus is on us to get them excited and play a brand of football they are proud of, and they enjoy watching. That is what I am working on. I’m not saying we will get to it overnight. We have to understand where we were, and where we want to get to… I will be doing everything to try and deliver that.”
