7 Reasons To Look On The Claret & Blue Bright Side

7 Reasons To Look On The Claret & Blue Bright Side


Look on the bright side.

Not just clutching at straws, but an analysis of what I consider to be some positive points of our current situation :

1. We have an owner who cares - nobody can doubt that.

2. We have 'football people' at the top - something that we were all asking for.

3. We have a manager that we can understand when he gives his post match interviews. Don't always agree with what he does or says,but at least we can understand what he says despite the Geordie accent.

4. We will have a new goalkeeper next year.

5. We have a first class centre forward-Kodjia will be better than Benteke.

6. Gabby's contract runs out at the end of next season.

7. We still play in Claret & Blue. OK I admit I am starting to run out now but trying to think positive does make me feel better. If I am honest though I have to tell you that a bottle of red wine works even better !

Other pluses: Hutton, Bunn and Kozak are out of contract at the end of this season. Richards is also out of contract next season along with Gabby, Toner, Cissiko and Sanchez, even though 2 are out on loan and hopefully will be gone this summer

I must say, I think Sanchez would boss this league, and in the (regular) absence of Jedinak, we're crying out for a ball-winner such as he. As for the other you mention KK, , meh. We will be well rid (maybe not Toner, I quite liked him when he played last season).

Agreed JPA, Sanchez in front of the defense is a good option and yes Toner looked promising. Another option is to bring Veretout back - as I said in a previous post he is doing well at St Etienne and showed what he can do at Old Trafford last night.

Fully agree the foundation is much stronger. Hence you can withstand the storm. Just a matter of the players playing as a unit. Promotion next year and hopefully no looking back. But the scary thing now is if we don't play well soon. We could get relegated again. So long term good, but the immediate a bit scary.

We will be relegated because there isn't any team We can beat. Dr. Xhia should be sourcing a replacement for SB right now to get us back up into the championship and 2 years after that into the Premiership. What we have at the moment is the quick fix and it just won't work.
