Clouds looming over manager Glory Days


Reports have circulated that either manager Glory Days is about to quit Chesterfield or that the Chesterfield board has grown tired of Glory Days’ management and are looking for other options to take over the West Yorkshire club for the remainder of the season.

Recent dour performances and lack of results have put pressure on the Australian manager, Chesterfield have only registered one win in the last five which was against bottom club Dagenham and having three losses against Leicester City, Scunthorpe United and play off rivals Barnsley with five points from a possible 18. Central to Chesterfield’s lack of success stemmed from the scoring drought of Italian striker Alberto Paloschi who has 11 goals in 22 games but hasn’t found the back of the net in his last five games.

After high profile departures from Northampton Town, Brighton Hove and Albion and Plymouth Argyle, some sources within the club have suggested that manager Glory Days may be heading out the door however these reports have been vehemently denied by manager Glory Days.

“I was astounded when I heard the reports that I wanted to leave the club. It’s simply not true, I am here for the long haul including the periods when we are struggling but there are encouraging signs in our last game”

However what may be a concern is that the Chesterfield board have yet to make a comment which could swing either way.

Manager Glory Days may be a victim of recent success, being promoted two seasons in to Division Three then overachieving by finishing in fifth spot however fans must remain realistic that Chesterfield have continued to overachieved this season with 35 points from 25 games and the first goal should be to secure their Division Three status.
