On a personal note, despite the bad run, I have been delighted by the attitude at the Club recently. It seems they have listened to the fans and have looked 'outside the box' to find ways of getting out of this rut of midtable mediocrity we have faced in at least the last couple of seasons .
Ambition defined as 'walking the talk' and taking calculated risks? Who could ask for more and who is not thanking the Board for their efforts?
Who can remember the last time we bought in January and finished up with a bigger squad at the end of the month compared to the beginning? Who can remember a time that we havent let our key players go in the New Year and struggle in the second half of the season? Did we really put two fingers up to Celtic and say Lafferty is ours,keep off?
The Board are backing Steve Cotterill and now it's time for the fans to back both. We are still punching above our weight with one of the smallest squads in the League but come on, this is a far better situation for some considerable time and all we have to do now is start winning again to restore confidence.
Further more, read these encouraging words from our manager who is clearly delighted the Board have backed him and can see a rosy future:
'We may have an opportunity of planning a little bit more for the future now. It's something which I've been looking to do, turn the team around a little bit and we have got quite a few ideas and plans.
'Some of them will have to wait until the summer, but some may come before the transfer window if there is an opportunity of doing that. I don't want to make any promises there that we can't fulfil though.
'We look at both short-term and long term plans. Our immediate short-term plan is to get a win under our belt and get playing with some confidence again.
'But there are quite a few long-term plans here for the future and beyond and I am delighted with that.
'The future looks a lot better than it has done over the last two and a half years. I would say there is a future now.
'Maybe a few things will come out in future weeks, but it looks pretty good so far.'
Come on the lads!
Up the Clarets!!
