Let's see some Action

Let's see some Action

Sadly Jermaine Pennant looks as though he is on his way out of St Andrews. He was quoted as saying he would not jump ship if Blues went down but rumour has it his sale was agreed long before the season ended. Another great motivational cock up by Bruce.

Pennent's last few performances had the hallmarks of a player on his way as although he provided some bright moments the dying for the cause was not there.

Steve Bruce is on holiday and so little is really happening. What is, is disturbing.

How one entices a player to St Andrews when you actually have just sold a team is anyone's guess. Some of the interest we are supposed to have in Algerian Crewe defenders
beggar's belief.

Season ticket holders are expected to cough up £600 to £1000 in single and double season tickets with some decent discounts.

They cannot feel much like giving up the money to see perhaps this line up:-

Taylor, Tebily,Bruce, Taylor, Sadler,Johnson, Nafti, Clemence,Kilkenny, Gray, Campbell.

That's what would be available in the time we are expected to pick up our season tickets. That is frightening. Even with discounts next year could see us playing in League 1 (Third Division) and still paying £550 to watch.

Instead if feeling insulted by Kenny Cunningham's remarks they should be the Blue print for Blues turn around. His way would bring results. The Sullivan-Gold way will see them rule over their FOURTH relgation

I think you're all a bit early with the doom & gloom Fatboy. There will be a lot of good players available in the month leading up to the start of the season, and i reckon the SB is a very persuasive man and will get you some good players. As for pennant, well, i aleways say, if they don't want to play for my club 100%, they can f**k off !!
