Read-ing all about it

Barnsley are in bother, so what can you do?

Let`s have a good old moan. We, as Britons, are probably the best in the world at complaining.


Okay, so we haven`t had that much to cheer about this season. Not a lot of thrilling games or goals, no F.A. Cup run, or League Cup run, and we`re once again lingering above the relegation zone.

When things are looking quite bad as the season draws to a close, who do we want to play? Certainly not Reading - who we face at the Madejski Stadium this Saturday.

So, it`s clear Simon Davey doesn`t have a lot of fans in the stands. But what can you do? Get down to Berkshire and shout your heart out, that`s what.

That`s all the fans can do, some may call us mugs for forking out every week, but that does give us our right to have our say.

We`re not even relegated yet, and have a game in hand. But, if we did get relegated, would it be the end of the world?

There may be a lot of television money filtering through into the Championship next season, but a season in football isn`t a long time. Football, as a career, is indeed a short one for a professional. I`m not saying we`re going to do a 'Leicester City` - we probably won`t, but we`re not even down!

Look on the bright side. You may be told to do that all of the time, and if I said 'put things into perspective` - the argument would probably boil down to someone telling me 'okay, then. What`s the point in absolutely anything in life?`

We have a good squad, one of the best in years down at Oakwell. We have an even better owner in Patrick Cryne, who has a genuine love for the club, and we aren`t the biggest club in the country.

All in all, what can you do? If you can afford it: get to the remaining few fixtures and get behind the boys.

As we sang last season - Que sera sera.

Come on you Reds!!!!!!!

Quality Matty! Thats the positive reaction we need, thats what I love about being a Barnsley fan - we are a small club and we can never be accused of being glory supporters like a lot of premier league club fans! I'm proud to be a red and will continue to be whatever league we're in. I know ultimately that all our fans will be the same!

After Luke Steele's outstanding performance at Reading, it will be a huge blow for the club to lose him in the summer. He's far too good to be warming the bench so it looks like we'll be losing him to another championship club. Please dont let it be one of our local rivals!!!
