John Sheridan: 'Notts County players who don't like my management can leave'

Joe Jones

John Sheridan has warned his Notts County players that they are free to leave the club if they don't like his style of management.

The Magpies fell to their sixth consecutive League Two defeat as Colchester United claimed a 2-1 win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Notts now sit one point above the drop zone thanks to Saturday's loss, in which eight of Sheridan's summer signings were involved.

"I've brought a few players in here at the start of the season, and on paper they looked good signings and everyone thought they were the right decisions," Sheridan told the Nottingham Post.

"But now, I've got to question myself - have I brought the right players in, am I picking the right team?

"I've got two weeks before the transfer window opens, and I've got to work very hard to bring the right people in and hopefully I can do that.

"I'm not someone who picks on my players. Whatever I have to say, I say in the dressing room, I don't make it public.

"They know where they stand with me, but if some aren't happy and are not comfortable at the club and with me being manager, they can knock on my door and I'll try and get them out as quickly as I can."

From Nottingham Post:

"Stan is still injured. He just gets a different injury every week so I can't tell you when he'll be back," he said.

"It's not frustrating for me. I've just got to pick the players who want to play and who are fit.

"When you're injured you're no good to me, without being disrespectful.

"Stan keeps getting injuries here, injuries there. They're setting him back."


Rodman, a summer signing from Newport, has also not played since featuring against Boreham Wood.

Like Aborah, he has suffered from a series of minor setbacks.

"He's another who gets injuries for some reason, little niggly problems," Sheridan said.

"I don't know when he'll be back. I don't think it will be long. One week they're fit then they're not.

"John the physio is the best man to ask about them!"


Looks like Sheridan has discarded these 2?  To say speak to the Physio is unacceptable and unprofessional.
