Monthly Update - February
February wasn't a great month but it was certainly better than some of the others this season. In all competitions we played 5 games. We won two, the Scottish Cup match against Queen of the South, and a league game against Hibernian. We also drew two of our games, against Rangers (4-4) and a 1-1 draw in a friendly against the Rangers reserve squad which was arranged just to make a bit extra cash. We did however lose a game, that we probably should have done better in, against Hearts.
The league, I think, is safe with Rangers. They are infront of 2nd place by 7 wins (21 points), and don't look to be slowing up. So it comes down to the very tight battle for the rest of the top-6 places. With only 4 points separating 2nd and 6th its anyones game at the moment and a teams position can shift dramatically after one bad result.
In the last monthly update I said I thought Galan was coming out of his shell, well now I think Gros has joined him as the two combined have scored 9 goals in the past month and a bit. Which personally, after the droughts they both had, I think is pretty damn good.
February was our best financial month as we have only lost £62,550 which is the lowest amount we have lost this season. We lost £105,000 on loan repayments which once again was our biggest expenditure while we brought £290,000 through gate reciepts.
Among the senior players, Mahamadou Sissoko (Tactics) and Lee Ashcroft (Strength) impressed myself and the coaches last month. However Fowler (Strength), Kelly (Aerobics) and Kroca (Strength) all failed to impress in their respective catagories.
