This weekend, the team showed the pride and passion for the shirt that we had been missing. It was great to see that despite being 1 goal down, we didn’t give up and in the end got what was deserved.
The original Crazy Gang
Friday evening, I was at a meet and greet hosted by Tom Ross at the Meadway. The original crazy gang were in attendance Robert Hopkins, Tony Coton, Noel Blake and Mick Hartford. The evening was great and one thing resonated throughout. That was the love for the club both on and off the field. When they arrived at training or at the games, they ensured that each player played for the shirt and if that didn’t happen, the players let them know.
They mentioned that fans realised at the time, that the football was not going to be pretty. It didn’t matter though as we were BCFC and we had hardworking no nonsense players. The crazy gang team scared opponents- we need that back. We need players to do “a Hoppy” and let them know early doors that they were not getting by, so they knew not to mess with them and that, in turn, will fire up the fans.
At the moment, we are all frustrated and want a change at the club in terms of owners. However, without a buyer this cannot happen. Fans need to use the frustration that’s built up and make St. Andrews a fortress again. The march is a good way to highlight what’s going on along with the #BSHLOUT campaign but we also need to be loud and proud in the stadium to show potential buyers what we are like and advertise the good of our fanbase. I have seen a lot of people posting about blocking players and staff entering the stadium, asking people to throw tennis balls on the pitch or all invading the pitch. This for me will put people off looking to buy the club. It is the ugly way to protest.
The team and Lee need us backing them at the moment not disrupting them further. On Saturday, lets get behind the team, get St Andrews bouncing and show potential owners what we are good for.

Spread the love
Last paragraph must be underlined a 1000 times. Any disruption of any kind towards the players on the pitch is lethal. We have a few younger players in James and Hall, also loanees that do not need distractions. There are other ways to protest- much more savvy. Three points against Barnsley is the priority. Imperative we get through to the end of the season with our Championship status intact. So far we are indebted to Derby and Reading with their points deductions. God knows where we would have been.
We need to get behind the boys and Lee we need our ground rocking we can chant all game for the owners to out which is fine but boycotting the game is doing nothing they have our money they dont give a damn lets get the stands rocking again make out voices heard inside the stadium back our boys they put up a great battle on saturday against Preston fans were brilliant we will be there again tomorrow night at Fulham KRC
The only problem is if we play like that now we’ll be down to 8 men by half time
