Big Words From Agnew!

Last updated : 12 November 2009 By Boro Mad

Steve Agnew: “Everything we have done on the training pitch has epitomised the manager’s ethos.

“What the manager and (assistant boss) Gary Pendry have brought is experience from the English and Scottish Premier League.

“And they have managed in the Champions League so the ideas and the coaching they have brought in has been very, very good.

“Both Colin (Cooper) and I have enjoyed working with them.

“I played against Gordon when I was at Barnsley and he was in the Leeds team that ended up winning the old second division – what we now call the Championship.

“He was one of the finest midfielders of his generation and he’s taken his beliefs into his career as a manger.

“He wants the game to be played like he played it, with bags of enthusiasm, the ability to pass and move and a winning mentality. The results have been disappointing but I can reassure supporters that things will come good on the pitch.”
