So who's enjoying our Transfer Ban season?

So hands up lads, who's enjoying our so-called problematic season? I certainly am.

Many pundits, opposition fans and even some of us ourselves, thought that with our transfer ban and with increased competition for places with the likes of Everton, Wolves and Leicester expected to join the race, we might fall out of our position in the so-called top six.

As it has transpired those fears were groundless, youth is having it's day and the good news is that is our puppies seem well capable of doing the job that is required of them.

Old farts like me, are seeing lots of similarities between our current crop of youngsters playing under a young inspirational manager and the Eddie McCreadie side of 1976-77 when then as now, things looked like they were going to kick on to greater things only for the stupidity of the board to shoot us in the foot, unbelievably now over something as trivial as a Company car.

Lets hope that history doesn't repeat itself and once control of our destiny is handed back to the board, they don't re-adopt the policies that have got us into all this, as was highlighted in Flash's excellent article yesterday.

As alluded to by Brummie and Superb earlier in the season we know that there are going to be bad days at the office, when you are dealing with the inevitable inconsistencies that will naturally accompany young players. Meanwhile, just strap yourselves in and just enjoy the rollercoaster ride.

Whether we manage to achieve some silverware this season, or as I expect we don't, I am enjoying the progress that we are making this season more than I have done any of our recent trophy-laden seasons.

It is very enjoyable so far and we still could finish out of the top 6 and it wouldn't really matter as long as the progress in developing these players continues to move forward.

I see moregreaves is still struggling with his teams (no not Brighton ) fall from grace!

It must be hard for him to see us dip into the academy and pull out kids they would love on their books!

It's a breath of fresh air after some of the transfer failings we've had to endure whilst knowing we had kids who were equal to the task in the academy and all round Europe.

I have a feeling that the events of 77, with Eddie Mac, won't be repeating itself - I doubt Frank is in need of a company car!

Brum on the company car issue I think we are safe but I was meaning the other bad habits our interfering board have.

I was worried if the players would be good enough, clearly they are...my main concern now is, especially for the U21s is the physical demands of a full season...these are still young men and they still need to develop their bodies...so i would caution Frank on overplaying them...right now i am a bit worried about Mount...i think he needs a rest..

But as already said, this season is an absolute pleasure so far and as a fan i feel no pressure
watching us play which makes it more enjoyable
