Results, results, results.
That is what football is all about and good ones allow those in charge of a club the time and space they need to make the changes that they want.
Coventry City's positive start to the season allowed Tim Fisher to claim at the weekend that without the club having been docked ten points, for ACL's refusal to sign a CVA, the Sky Blues would have been in the top six in League One.
And continuing good results will, undoubtedly, lead to a slow increase in the number of City supporters going to Sixfields.
It's not a question of being fickle, just that seeing your team win on the pitch is the main determining factor in the happiness of a football fan and the well-being of a football club.
SISU have suffered for it in the past. Imagine if they had been able to make a push for a rent reduction or deal on the Ricoh Arena with the team pushing for promotion to the Premier League? It would have changed the landscape considerably.
Sadly the mismanagement of those in charge at the time meant a catastrophic plunge into League One and there was little, if any, goodwill left for the owners when they decided to take on ACL.
Look into the top-flight and there are two very good examples of how results can trump everything else.
On BBC Five Live on Sunday one of the commentators for the Cardiff versus Manchester City game said he had spoken to a home fan about the change from blue to red shirts.
The gist of the reply was that as long as the 'Bluebirds' were in the Premier League they could play in any colour shirt they wanted.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce, meanwhile, defended his owner's plans to change the club's name to something more appealing to the worldwide market by saying that he had invested plenty and got the Tigers into the promised land.
