Brady: No knee-jerk Grant decisions

16 November 2010 03:31
West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has insisted the club will not make any rash decisions over the future of manager Avram Grant. With the Hammers rooted to the foot of the Premier League table with just nine points from their opening 12 games, times appear tough at Upton Park. But the former Birmingham City managing director is looking at ways to improve their fortunes on the pitch rather than ditching the beleaguered Israeli, who joined the club from Portsmouth in the summer. "I think it's very easy for people who run football clubs to sit back and that finger of blame comes out and ultimately always ends up on the manager," Brady told Sky Sports News. "We don't want to hit the panic button yet but we do want to look deep into ourselves and say 'what can we do to help the team and the manager and what can we do to improve things?' as opposed to sitting and playing the blame game, which unfortunately, there are no winners in. "We think it will take time to get all the things right. We are playing good football but unfortunately we're not getting the results that we all think we deserve."
