Derby County boss Billy Davies insists he's comfortable with his job despite their struggles.
After defeat to Aston Villa, Davies, with six defeats, no goals and just one away point so far, is banking on additional investment allowing him to plot a survival course.
Thankfully, his sense of humour has remained intact.
"That's what will eventually see me win the World Cup as a manager - at the age of 39!
"Look, we were prepared to take early setbacks. We will mature. We will make changes in January.
"Until then, we have to sort things out on the pitch ourselves.
"We need to become nastier. Among ourselves. Two of my players were having a go, were they?
"Come on. Big wow. I'm not going to apologise for that, because they've had words.
"They were mates again when they came in the dressing room.
"Well, they were after I'd knocked them out."
