Notts County must give next boss time, says Alan Judge
NOTTS County won't get anywhere if they keep firing managers every five minutes, says Alan Judge.
The Magpies' ambitions are to get promoted into the Championship – but their star midfielder says they are in danger of being stuck in League One until they give someone time in the hotseat.
"The board know that – everybody sees that," said Judge.
"They obviously have intentions every time they get a new manager in for it to be long-term, but it hasn't worked for them."

Notts County have sacked four managers in just over 27 months.
"Hopefully the next manager that comes in will be here for longer than a year," added Judge.
After seeing Craig Short, Paul Ince and Martin Allen all given the chop, Judge is sad Keith Curle has also been axed after 11 months in the job.
He says he might even have left the club if it wasn't for him.
"I was told I was getting sold to MK Dons and then he said I'd be a big factor to the way he plays football," he said.
"To hear something like that makes you want to stay here."
Asked if Curle's exit has changed his long-term thoughts on signing a new deal in the summer to stay at Notts, Judge added: "It doesn't really change anything at the minute because I'm going to be here until the end of the season.
"I will just be concentrating on my football and do everything I can for this club while I'm still here.
"As long as I'm here I will give 100 per cent because the fans don't deserve anything less than that.
"Come the end of the season I will sit down and talk to my agent and we'll see what happens."
There are 16 games left until the end of the season and Chris Kiwomya has been put in caretaker charge of the club, following Curle's dismissal.
He will take charge of his second game against Crewe Alexandra at Meadow Lane today and Judge has vowed to give his all for him.
"We know Chris and as long as he's here all of the players are behind him and we will give him everything we have," he said.
Kiwomya could land the job permanently if he does well and Judge added: "Everybody deserves a chance. He has done his coaching so why not start here now."
