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.

Talking to the media, the caretaker head coach discussed the players mentality ahead of what is a crucial game for both clubs as we and the Addicks fight against relegation:

“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?

Yes

Yes

No

No

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.

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

  • I guarantee that next year I will play football and cricket for England. There you are, conclusive proof that gobbing off is really easy, whereas actually performing is a bit harder. Sadly that sums up a lot of our players.

  • Surely last nights results should be a spur to our Team, if not there is something seriously wrong, as it stands it looks like Wigan could be safe even if they deducted 12 points and what a great job Paul Cook has done there,motivated the team in very trying circumstances,if only we has some like him or Chris Wilder,its funny how we end up with doughnuts as managers.
