Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says his side's position at the bottom of League One is a "high quality problem".
City were in the Blue Square Premier in 2008 and have been promoted twice since to reach the third tier.
"There've been a lot more tough times than this," he told BBC Radio Devon.
"We're in League One, we've got a very good manager, a very good team, we're playing some very good football, we've not had very good results. It's what's called a high quality problem."
City almost went out of business in 2003 after being relegated to the Conference.
"Before I start sympathising with too much doom and gloom let me just remind people where we were eight, nine or 10 years ago," he added.
Exeter lost 4-0 at home to Hudderfield Town on Saturday, their fifth defeat in six matches in all competitions.
"This is not a major problem and if we are bottom of the league, so be it," he said.
"We're doing our best, we are a very good football club, we function very well.
"I think there a lot more things to worry about than where we currently lie just a quarter of the way into the season."
