Going Nowhere

Going Nowhere

Gary Johnson has no intentions of leaving us anytime soon, and as long as he's feeling as good about life with The Glovers as he is now he'll most likely do this until he retires.

He told BBC Somerset, when asked if he could see himself retiring at Huish Park that he could.

'My wife can. And she wants that to be sooner rather than later.

'I've got no thoughts of doing anything else at this moment in time. While I'm still thinking like that, this is the place I want to be.'

Football can be very fickle, and a string of poor results can change things quickly, but I'm content with Johnson to remain at Huish Park as long as he wants to really!

Has Johnson made a bad decision in his managerial career? I'd maybe argue that he might have made the wrong move at times, but that's football and what you do, but he has ever right to be have achieved what he had and to have enjoyed it.

We might have dropped back into the SkyBet League 1 but it's far from the end of the world as it's still, realistically, a level far above what we previously might have dreamt about playing at.

Returning to the SkyBet Championship is of course the aim though having enjoyed this previously but being among the favourites, if not the favourites this season, isn't going to make it any easier.

'We were playing at a level than the club ever thought possible 10 years ago. We knew it was going to be an experience and that's why we wanted to enjoy it.

'We competed very well and unfortunately, with a couple of games to go, we got relegated.

'It will be fun to go back up and stay up there next time. However, we've now have to deal with the pressure of being favourites to go back up this time.'

It's hard to believe that Johnson's been in management for 28-years now with some six or seven of these years spent with us split over two spells.
