Start again

So Saints tomorrow, it maybe that we have 7 games to go, but every game we play now is the run in to the next season. We cannot end the season as we have gone throughout the season. Look at Derby last year, they had a season like we have had, but in the Prem., they started and for most of this season been dire and flirted with relegation, unfortunately they got Clough in and now look way off the drop. We need to end the season with a flourish, win all our home games, pick up at least one away win. Next season we need to be at least a play off team, we need to win more games than we lose, we need to start generating a positive momentum now.

Sure there will be changes in the summer, some who want Parkie to stay, others who threaten to ignore the club if he stays, players will go ZZ, Ambrose, Weaver, maybe Shelvey, Semedo, Racon, Grey and Fortune. Quite a roll call another summer of disruption, curiosity for us the fans and if we thought we had got misfits when we joined the Championships, we won't know anyone that is coming in.

But while the club start to plan for next season, 25 redundancies, friendly sales of assetts to directors, preparing for a new Dowie legal battle,which will cost money even if we win, so must we, the fans.

With Luton preparing for an appearance in the Johnstone paint trophy final this weekend, we can look forward to next seasons final on 28th March 2010. The Football League tell us that the season starts on the 8th August with the Carling Cup starting wc 10th August . The Play Off Finalis on the 30th May.
