Under-fire Jewell on Monday opted to remain as manager of the Suffolk club having admitted he was considering his future after the weekend's defeat at Hull left his struggling side winless in 10 games and still second-bottom in the Championship.

Edwards was one of those, along with owner Marcus Evans, to give Jewell his backing - but as the Town boss now looks to turn the club's form around, experienced Trinidad and Tobago full-back Edwards wants to see more bite.

"I told him he needs to get back to the horrible guy he was when he first came. If he does that you'll see who wants to be at the club and who doesn't," Edwards told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"He's changed loads. He's too nice for his own good. That means his job is up in the air. He's not the type of person to be horrible and doesn't want to be branded as that.

"Some players still need breast feeding. Players are not like they once were and you need to put an arm around them. But sometimes they need a kick up the backside rather than an arm around the shoulder."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
