There was a great story on the BBC's website last week about German side Energie Cottbus.

After losing 4-0 away to Schalke last Friday night, the Club apologised to their fans for the "pitiful performance" and said that they would be refunding the ticket money to their 600 strong travelling support that had made the 720 mile round trip.

It was a great gesture from the Club, who are currently lying second bottom of the Bundesliga.

How many other Clubs would admit that they should be paying the fans to watch the rubbish that has been served up on the pitch? Certainly not East Fife!

If they were to do that this season then the Club would soon find themselves calling in the administators!

There's been a lot of criticism of some East Fife players in recent weeks for their lack of commitment. Some have said that it's their protest against the management of the boardroom struggles.

What should be remembered though is that the players shouldn't be playing for the manager. Or for the Chairman.

They should always be playing 100% for the fans and it would do some players good to remember this.

Maybe they'll refund us out of their own wages when they don't.
