Yeovil Town manager Darren Way has admitted that he feels there is 'something wrong' within the football club at the moment. The Glovers boss described the current state at Huish Park as a 'cloud' hanging over the club which he said was causing anxiety. Way's views came after he had watched his side lose 0-3 at home to Port Vale in a League Two match that was as comfortable a win as they will get all season, with two goals from Cristian Montano and another from Connell Rawlinson allowing them to breeze to three points.
That left Way's team with only one League win in eleven matches, and a team that have slid nastily down the table to 19th place, and just five points off the relegation spots. The Glovers boss admitted that defeat in the FA Cup against Stockport County had kickstarted what he saw as being three difficult weeks and wanted to change that position:
"I just look at the situation that we're in. It's probably been a very very difficult three weeks. The timing and the exit of the FA Cup and the timing of my contract. I've always fought extremely hard for this football club, and I love every minute of it, and I will continue to do that. But I just feel that perhaps, since I've been manager there's a cloud where we need to sit down as a whole at the football club and take away this anxiety, because as I've said I'm the manager, and I have to make sure that I get performances right, and we put this club into a position where everyone is sticking together, and what we've had in previous years. I have to say that fundamentally there does feel there's something wrong. I felt it before the game. I could see that within my players performances."
Way's side were booed upon the full time whistle, whilst the manager himself was booed on a couple of occasions during the second period when he caught the ball inside his technical area. He admitted that the situation the club was finding itself in was not one he wanted them to be in, with the current state looking closer to a relegation fight than the play-off chase he had frequently targeted:
"I just look at the performance. I wanted my players to give the supporters something to get behind. I understand as the manager of the football club, I'm always under pressure. I've dealt with that. I feel I've taken the bullets at the football club. Quite clearly we need to be giving the supporters more, and I take total responsibility. We've got ten days now to work extremely hard, to make sure we get performances so we can allow our supporters to get behind the football club. I just think that as the manager of the football club, you're always under pressure and I just feel at this difficult period of time, it's about myself and the players, and making sure we're a stronger unit, and fight for this football club. I want more, and I always have done, as a manager. But at the same time, you have to understand the situation that we keep finding ourselves in."
