Alex right not to panic buy; Your Shout.

I MUST say I, for one, am glad Alex McLeish didn't pay over-inflated prices for a player on the last day.

There's no need to panic, we're (almost) certain to still be in the Premiership next season.

If one of the strikers gets injured we can always put Faddy up front and have Fahey wide.

If the striker problem is not addressed in the summer, then we can moan. For now, let's get behind the manager and our team, starting against Wolves at the weekend.

STEVECARDIFFBLUENOSE, via email I AM totally behind Eck. The players we have there now have got us into eighth position.

I'm sure 100 per cent of Bluenoses would have snatched your hand off for that at the start of the season.

Let's not worry about panic buying a striker. Think of Mike Newell and Chris Sutton.

I reckoned up what I think we're capable of getting points-wise, and I think 55 to 57 points, five to seven more points than we achieved when we finished tenth some years back.

That's not bad for a team who were relegation favourites, is it? FIELDY, via email I AM very disappointed Blues did not sign a striker or two during the transfer window.

With O'Connor out for the season and Bent (thankfully) loaned out to QPR, we're left with two main strikers, neither of whom could be called prolific, plus Phillips, a bit-part player these days.

Gates were beginning to rise but the lack of spending may well be seen as promises being broken and it's a good job we've got 34 points already in the bag.

So much for us spending pounds 20 million-pounds 40 million. I'll believe it when I see it.

Did we not consider Robbie Keane until the end of the season? T COATES, Kings Norton A SHORTAGE of forwards so Blues' only tall striker (well, forward) Marcus Bent is sent back on loan with none of the potential targets coming in.

Yet two good stand-ins, Nugent and Healy, were snapped up on loans by lesser clubs.

Very disappointed Alex.

D GEORGE, Sutton SO, Blues, what happend to the pounds 20m-pounds 40m we had to spend? Same old story at St Andrew's. All talk, no action.
