Talking Point: Pre Season
What a pre-season it has been for Blues so far. With the final game coming against Inverness Caledonian Thistle at St. Andrews on Saturday, Blues fans will be hoping for more of the same.
Some of the performances during this pre-season have been marvelous. The game against Notts County was the pick of the bunch for me. Blues were hard-working, confident, and they showed they can play too. The build up to Andrew Shinnie`s goal was excellent, let`s hope he can kick on now and become a useful player to the club. I also have to mention the performances of the young Reece Brown and Demarai Gray. They were outstanding, the energy and effort they put in is exactly what we`ll need this season. Clayton Donaldson is another one who stood out yet again. He`s now netted four goals in pre-season and Blues fans can hope he takes his great form into the new season.
Now moving onto the back line. Blues have yet to concede a single goal during pre-season, something that will come as a relief to Blues fans after the tragic defending of last season. Both centre-halves Gavin Gunning and Jonathan Grounds look composed and confident on the ball, and it`s great to see Will Packwood come back after injury.
Although it`s right to say we shouldn`t get carried away with Blues` form so far in pre-season, it comes as a relief to finally see some consistently. Putting a run of wins together will no doubt give the players some belief and confidence going into the first game at Middleborough. We`re finally scoring goals at will & looking solid at the back. Every player is working for the team and it`s fantastic to see.
Let`s hope Blues can take their fantastic pre-season form into the new season and give the fans something to shout about!
Blues fans, do you think it`s right to be optimistic about the new season following our good pre-season form? Let me know in the comments.
