I think we might have just entered ‘panic stations’.
Not when it comes to the relegation battle, because some fans have been at that stage for some time now.
According to a report from The Athletic, Nottingham Forest are interested in bringing in Lukas Jutkiewicz during the January transfer window as a backup option for Lewis Grabban.
Jutkiewicz is currently the Blues top-scorer, and he hasn’t exactly had a lot of help from his team-mates this season, with the joint-second highest marksman being left-back Kristian Pedersen, so if Nottingham Forest were to take him from West to East Midlands, then there certainly would be a problem when it comes to finding the back of the net.
However, that seems to be the least of the concerns when it comes to these Birmingham fans. Many of them seem to think that his departure would either be a microcosm of the larger problems that the club are facing right now, or just the start of a period of mass change at St Andrew’s, with many more players following him out the door.
This will just be the start. All those that came in the summer with the promise of a promotion push won't hang around longer than they have to. If not January it'll be the summer.

I’m sorry for the negativity during a very positive period for the club but if Jutkiewicz is the answer I think we’re asking the wrong question. #nffc

And so it begins, don't be suprised to see quite a few depart, not the best place to be at the moment.

He’s off, how can we keep him when we are in our current state. All it takes is one senior player to go and the rest will follow suit. Peps time is up #ClotetOut

Who could blame him if he left with our rubbish team and rubbish owners.

Would you be OK with Juke leaving?
I told you that we were at panic stations didn’t I?
