There’s a green revolution going down in Tehran – and a Blue one over at St Andrews, apparently. Andy Munro reflects on a rare summer of optimism.

If somebody had told me at the end of last season that David Sullivan was selling the ‘Sunday Sport’ and taking over ‘Methodist Monthly’, I couldn’t have been more surprised than I am at Blues’ current spending spree.

It’s all a bit too much for a besieged Bluenose to take in and I find myself humming a parody of that old reggae style hit along the lines of ‘Young,Gifted and Not Scottish’.

Have Sully and the Ginger One taken leave of their senses in investing in some potentially exciting young players….mind you I understand that Alex was under a slight misapprehension for the latest signing when the chief scout told him ‘that young Scott… Dann is a great prospect, Boss’.

Sometimes you have to hold up your hand and apologise for unwarranted criticism and I’ll be doing just that if we complete the signings of Joe Hart (apparently in the bag), Roger Johnson(a distinct possibility), Jordi Gomez(or a similarly influential and energetic playmaker) and a young Kevin Phillips type goal poacher.

Unfortunately the fixture list hasn’t been to kind to us in terms of an opening game against ManUre – even worse Harry Rednapp, the bookie’s friend is tipping us to win. Mind you whatever happens, we will have three points on the board sooner rather than later with the Villa home match coming up.

As a Premiership club we are following the usual trend of playing some fairly downmarket friendlies with the exception of Primera Liga opposition Sporting Dijon who I’m told are mustard! Roll on the new season.


Andy Munro would like to point out that 'my views are personal and not those of the City Council'
