Reid - I owed the club

Reid - I owed the club

A move away from Ewood Park in the summer could have been a possibility but Steven Reid opted against this, admitting now that he "owed the club." As if his decision to stay wasn`t good enough news his latest comments will be an even biggest boost for everyone and will hopefully set an example that others will follow?

The Republic of Ireland International put in a series of impressive displays last season, as he has on the whole during his time at Ewood to be fair but this has been very much disrupted by injuries. His form in the latter part of last season saw him linked with possible moves to the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur early in the summer but fortunately he decided his future lies with Rovers. Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph Reid said.

'After a difficult first year and a half, I thought I had a good season last year and I just felt I owed it to the fans to stay, which is what I've done.'

In a day and age when many would concede that loyalty is a thing of the past within the football community the 25-year-old`s admission proves that there is still a little of it left around. Many would hope that the likes of Lucas Neill, Brett Emerton and Ryan Nelsen will follow suit and sign new contracts, or improved deals as could be the case with Nelsen.

YOU ARE RIGHT THERE. LOYALITY IS A DYING THING IN FOOTBALL BUT REID HAS PROVED HIS. LOOKS LIKE 5TH/6TH IS WHAT MOST ARE LOOKING AT GOING BY THE POLL WHICH WOULD BE A VERY GOOD SEASON

this is great news for the team, Reid can cover for Neill but is better in Midfield. Its a pity players like Neill didnt take heed of this, leaving for Barca is NON starter and leaving for Spurs is just plain stupid as they are no better a team
