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

Ireland Supports New Managers Mantra

Whilst most think Houllier will revolutionise the club off the pitch, Stevie Ireland definitely agrees with the evolution theory on it.

Speaking to the Official Site (they have been busy today!) Stevie said he was looking forward to working under Houllier but more importantly that he was glad that the new manager and players will have until Christmas to work together properly before the 'new manager signings' can take place.

He believes it will help get the best out of the players currently, and really allow Houllier the time to assess the squad's strengths and weaknesses properly before bolstering the squad in the January transfer window.

'At other clubs when new managers come in there has been change too fast too soon and it hasn't worked. So I think the way he is going to work things, it is going to be good. Hopefully we can get into a good routine and we can win consistently.

'I know he has got big plans for us all, so the players will have to get on board.'

Ireland says the priority is obviously a decent finish in the league given the turmoil of late, but also that the Cups will be important for the club this year.

Everybody needs their spirits raised a little given what's happened, so a good Cup run and some stability in the league would certainly achieve that.

Stevie also admitted that he wasn't alone at the 'Bolton disappointment' and it wasn't quite the send off the players had intended to give Kevin MacDonald who returned to the reserves today, but he's certainly hoping disappointments like that will become a thing of the past as we move forward under the new manager.

I doubt he's alone there.
