O'Brien: Tykes will come good

Barnsley midfielder Jim O'Brien sees no reason why the Tykes cannot start to reproduce the form they showed at the end of last season.

Jim O'Brien: Barnsley midfielder thinks the team can go on a run

Barnsley secured their first win of the current campaign in the derby clash with Huddersfield at Oakwell after taking just one point from their previous four league encounters, while they were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Southampton last week.

However, O'Brien feels it is only a matter of time before David Flitcroft's side show the collective spirit that saw them lose only one of their last 11 league games last season.

"I think everyone expected us to come charging out of the blocks, really firing, but it's a different season," O'Brien said.

"But we have a gameplan and we trust it. We trust what the manager's trying to do, it's just about putting it into practice and learning from the mistakes we've been making.

"I think if the fans stick with us and don't get frustrated with us during games, that's important to us.

"We've had some new guys come into the squad and it's important they learn quickly what we're all about.

"We need to gel with them and they need to get to know us better. Pre-season was great, especially in Spain and a few of the newer lads came out of their shell. It takes time, but we're getting up to speed with each other."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
