Gary Rowett was the supposed saviour. Gianfranco was the butt of all jokes. Panos Pavlakis was the target of all bullets of criticism. Harry Redknapp was the saviour mark two.

Funny ol’ season. Funny ol’ game.

This is what we’ve come to expect from Birmingham City over the years. Pain. Whether that’s self inflicted or economic. But it’s always followed by hope.

Outplayed by Burton Albion on our own patch, Blues were destined for League One. The fans had almost come to accept it. Then, the Italian walks and is replaced by ‘Arry. Almost instantly, an air of confidence grew. Before Redknapp had even arranged the drawers on his Wast Hills desk, Bluenoses far and wide were rubbing their hands together at the prospect of another season in England’s second tier.

Birmingham City are about to embark upon yet another rebuild. Visitors to Birmingham City Centre often comment on the amount of renovation work taking place – the city’s football club are no different.

Along with hiring Redknapp as the permanent manager, a Director of Football has been appointed as well as the gaffers wing man. The exit door has also been in full swing with a director, Head of Recruitment and temporary Assistant Manager all departing.

And don’t think it will end there. If the tabloids are to be believed, Blues are set to add 83 players and a porn star to their ranks Talk about strength in depth…

The rollercoaster will commence shortly and, as usual, it’s bound to be one heck of a ride.
