"On the other hand, if they weren't playing well, I would be knocking
on the manager's door asking when I'm going to get my chance again."
"No disrespect to the teams around us but we don't want to be in the
bottom six and I think they would say exactly the same thing.
"There is no competitiveness, it's just playing out the rest of the
