It might sound a bit cliché, but we really are running out of opportunities to stop talking and start producing some actual results.
It’s not good making promises and offering up soundbites unless you’re going to follow through on them eventually. Which is why I found Steve Spooner’s comments ahead of tonight’s game with Charlton Athletic rather hollow, because our recent form doesn’t really suggest that the team have the ability to.
“I have managed to have a chat with a few of the players, footballers are humans, they all need some guidance too. We are trying to get around and gauge the feelings, the players have been very responsive and are ready to fight.”
Do the players need to take some blame for the situation we're in?
However, Blues fans weren’t too thrilled to see these comments, most of them echoing my earlier sentiments that the time for talk is over, and this game is the perfect chance to prove it.
They should not need to be asked to fight its what their paid for and should feel a responsability to put 100% effort in thats all we have ever wanted 🌎🏐

Why couldn't they be ready to fight a few games ago?

What about you? What do you make of Spooner’s comments on the matter?
