Glenn's Roeder to nowhere

Glenn's Roeder to nowhere

Before Barnsley's clash with Nowrich, the Canaries' boss Glenn Roeder insists he will not quit Carrow Road:

The former Newcastle boss told reporters after their 1-0 F.A Cup defeat to Charlton last night:

'I am not going to tell you any lies - no one likes it.

'Tell me a human being that would enjoy that. But where some human beings have no backbone and would go under, don't expect me to.

'Football changes with a flick of the finger, it changes very quickly and I will be the last man standing.

'I don't fall over very easy - in fact I don't all over at all. Too many things have happened in my life - recovering from brain tumours and things like that gives you a different sense of purpose to life.

'Most people haven't had to deal with things like that, most people who have to deal with things like that then just slide away and do what they have to do for the rest of their life, but that's not me, and it never will be.

'I love a fight, I don't like where we are at the moment.

'I accept the criticism because they want to win. I want to win as well - as long as they know that. But I never cow down, I never give in and we will turn it around, although the points total doesn't say this at the moment, this small tiny squad has much more quality than last year's.

'But we have to make sure, we have to find players and when we create the chances we do create they stick the ball in the back of the net and we don't have to keep on making four or five good chances to stick one in the back of the net because we can't afford that.'

Make no mistake, Barnsley's clash with the Canaries will be no easy match but hopefully the Tykes will put the final nail in the coffin of Roeder's reign.
