BOARD MOOOOVE TO HELP CASH COWS

12-12-2008

The St Andrews board have finally woken up the fact that thousands of fans have stopped turning up regularly at St Andrews. Callum O' Connell welcomes a change of heart.

Well it's been a while, and there have been some ups and downs in the following couple of months; Blues have been through a sticky 'not winning' phase of the season but are now back on track. The pick of the games was easily the Wolves derby, which we should have comfortably won, while our most outstanding player from the past month is James McFadden who is finally producing the form which made McLeish buy him.

In the Board Room, I think the penny finally dropped with the directors - they know they have been ripping of the fans for years and now they have turned thousands away, they're finally trying to do something about it with cut price offers that actually reward loyal fans - like free admission for season-tciket holders for the FA Cup against Wolves. At least it's finally hit home that they cannot keep treating fans as 'cash cows'.

With the January transfer window almost upon us, a lot will be made now of who will depart, but even more about who we might sign.

Keith Fahey who we signed from St Pat's In Ireland looks to be a good addition, and I really hope Quincy is made permanent. If we can keep hold of Mc Fadden and Larsson then I will be happy. Many fans, myself included, also hope that a central defender will be signed, although we have got the tightest defence in the championship at the moment.

The game against Watford showed again why Quincy has to be signed as he is showing that he is a player that can make it in the Premiership as well terrorising tight Championship defences. On Tuesday, Blues went to Plymouth in search of another victory and to keep the pressure on Wolves who are three points ahead. A 1-0 victory proved again that Blues can grind out reasults when they don't particularly play well.

Blues go to Deepdale for the first time in 2 years this weekend, after a loss last time when David Nugent scored in a 1-0 win for the home side. Hopefully Quincy will start again - if so, another win is on the cards.

In late transfer news, Blues are apparently on the trail of Robin Shroot - the 20 year old currently plays for ryman premier league side harrow borough and has scored 11 goals in 14 starts.

The rest of the season is set up nicely for blues and I hope that our form continues.. premiership here we come.

the futures bright the futures blue :-)
