Jan is the man: Reasons to be Positive

After starting the new league season with consecutive defeats, a general air of negativity risks surrounding St Marys. With this in mind, I felt it was time to voice a rallying call for those now doubting the Dutch Revolution and present five reasons for fans to be positive about the new Dutch set-up.

1) Jan Poortlviet played at right-back for Holland in the 1978 World Cup final. 'Nuff said.

2) The facebook goup Jan Poortlviet is the Don now contains twenty-four members (and counting). With such fervent backing from the online networking community it is hard to see how Jan can go wrong.

3) The success of our young squad will rely upon confidence. While two defeats will not engender it, it must be remembered that the matches saw Saints outplay the opposition for large periods. When the first win comes, it should boost the youngsters' belief, making subsequent success more likely.

4) It looks like Andrew Surman is staying after the Reading deal fell through. While it may not be forever, a longer stay from the St Marys favourite will be welcomed by all fans.

5) Things can only get better. We are currently in the relegation zone.

Now, more than ever: COYRs

No comments:

Which team will fill the third relegation spot?

Four games left. Will Saints survive?

Would you be in favour of a return for Rupert?
