The game last Friday in UCD delivered a clear message for all Blues' fans...the squad that Roddy Collins has put together can compete and could possibly be a contender at the business end of the season.
The weeks ahead, starting in Cabinteely next Friday night will give a better picture. The manager has assured Blues' fans that he will get it right on the pitch and he must be given every opportunity to do so. Last season must be written off as practise - this is different. He has had a full off season to put his own squad together and the games against Limerick and Drogheda both of which clubs will expect to get back to the Premier Division at the first time of asking, cannot be viewed as an indication of where the present squad can finish in Division 1.
Keep the faith, Blues' fans! Get behind your team - be the 12th man!
