After last night’s disappointing 3-0 defeat against top of the table Bristol City, Vale manager Micky Adams gave a very emotional interview with the local press.
Micky believes that he doesn’t really know how to feel at this moment in time and that in recent weeks he has tried to implement changes which will cut out the errors that are being made.
But they are still being made and that that is down to a lack of confidence throughout the squad.
During the interview, Micky said: “My thoughts and emotions are all over the place at this moment in time, so I don’t think that I should be saying much to the players.
“I’ve tried to be nice and relaxed with them, because I don’t want my emotions showing too much so they don’t affect them.
“Every individual in that dressing room is good enough, however they are playing without confidence, which is evident.
“So quite clearly something isn’t right in the dressing room, whether that’s me or themselves or the way we’re going about our jobs then I don’t know, but it’s certainly something that needs to be looked at.
“They have to pick themselves up, you can’t give players confidence, they have to believe in what they do and go out their and implement it.
“We do have to remember that they were a very good side at the top of the table, but the things that are undoing us are the same things that we’ve talked about now for weeks and weeks.”
Micky feels that the fans will be hit the most by this poor run, but he believes the players will go again on Saturday to try and turn their run of poor form around.
He explained: “I want to apologise to our supporters, they’re having a tough time of it.
“I know a majority of supporters are not happy with Micky Adams and I can understand that.
“I think every manager has a shelf life at a football club, maybe I’ve reached mine, but that’s probably for a discussion elsewhere at another time, instead of immediately after a defeat against the top of the table side.”
