'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blues put their trust in Gaz


Wycombe Wanderers have appointed Gareth Ainsworth as their new permanent manager.

In caretaker charge since the end of September, Ainsworth has initially been handed a contract until the end of the season.

During his spell in the hot seat, Wycombe have won three, drawn three, and lost four, a big improvement on the early season record of won one, drawn one, lost seven under previous manager Gary Waddock.

Apart from improving results, Gaz has inspired a noticeable difference in the players' attitude and workrate, some of the lacklustre performances at the end of Waddock's reign having bordered on the unforgivable.

Despite having to cope with an even longer injury list than the one that hampered his predecessor, Ainsworth's Wycombe have managed to keep three clean sheets - a rarity under Waddock, but an essential ability in a relegation battle.

The Blues are still a long way from where they would like to be in terms of either performance or league position, but the Trust have put their faith in Ainsworth to keep our head above water for now and kick on when key players return from the treatment room.

Under the circumstances, it's a sensible decision. The players are clearly behind Ainsworth, and in a relegation battle it's crucial that everyone pulls together.

This season probably won't be pretty, but it could be one of the most important in the club's 125 year history.
