Great Expectations!

Great Expectations!

Four points from three games is hardly promotion form!

Yesterday, we looked far from being promotion candidates as Macclesfield gave us a few football lessons.

As it turned out the air of discontent around Kenilworth Road was silenced when Luke Guttridge equalized in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Talking about the situation, John Still remarked after the mach,

"I told the football club when I arrived that if they wanted a quick fix I am not the man."

"Luton have had a lot of good managers here before me and it has not happened. There was nothing wrong with the quality of those managers though but for whatever reason it did not happen."

"There were a lot of disappointing aspects today for sure. I do not think we got the ball into the box enough at key times and for most of the game there was not enough purpose to our play. We all know the only way we are going to turn it around is by working hard though."


And on the crescendo of boos, Still added,

"I do not worry about that."

"I understand the level of expectation at this club because if I did not I would not be here. When the crowd is agitated it sometimes happens but I am building a team that should know how to deal with it so for me it is not a problem."


It may not be at the moment but we all know the Kenilworth Road crowd demands success and our continued absence from the Football League will not be tolerated for much longer!
