McAuley Confident Results Will Come

McAuley Confident Results  Will Come

Sean McAuley has spoken out for the first time since taking the caretaker manager role at Wednesday, and he believes he and the squad can turn things around.

It's not the first time McAuley has been handed the task of improving the fortunes of the Hillsborough club, he did it when Paul Sturrock was sacked as Owls boss just over three years ago.

Back then his impact was superb, helping the Owls to some impressive wins before Brian Laws took the hot seat.

McAuley, and Wednesdayites, will be hoping for more of the same this time, starting against Swansea City at Hillsborough this weekend.

And he's confident that he can help play a part in lifting Wednesday out of, and away from, the relegation spots.

'We're under no illusions as to where we are at because the league table doesn't lie,' he told the official SWFC website.

'From speaking to the staff, we are in a position where if we do make a couple of changes here and there and the momentum can gather, we can pull ourselves from the position we're in and climb the table.'

McAuley, already an early favourite to take the position on a permanent basis, insists he'll be trying to instill belief into the players more than anything this week, with confidence understandably at a low.

And he's also calling on the help of the Wednesday faithful inside Hillsborough this week.

He added: 'This club is always going to be bigger than anybody...the manager, the players, everyone. So let's all support this football club and the team.'

We've not won in nine, lost the last four, not scored for 520 minutes, got hardly any strikers and the strikers we do have can't score, we can't defend, we have a lightweight midfielder that lacks any sort of quality, have no manager, no money, dwindling support, chairman who seems all talk an no action......... what exactly is giving rise to this optimism? Who is going to score the goals to get us out of this? Who is going to defend well enough to allow us to win games? Can't see us leaving the bottom three anytime soon to be honest. I apologise for the gloom but it's how I'm feeling at the moment.

October 2006 - six defeats in 12, lost 4-0 at Colchester, fourth-bottom. Enter McAuley - we then beat QPR, Palace, Leicester and drew away at Wolves. It's a funny old game.

Be interesting who plays up front, I really rate McAuley and what he has done for Wednesday, could well see some passion again lets get behind him and give him a fair crack at the job, he deserves it, first time for a long time i'm looking forward to the weekend

I rate him as well brighton. I would be happy to see him have a crack till the end of the season. If not then probably worthy.

not by me bognor. i would bring jeffers back in and I'd play him with either clarke or feeney as we have offered absolutely nothing in attack recently. i like tudgay but he's not a goalscorer by any stretch and varney is very similar
