This months transfer window involving Championship clubs is proving interesting for Blues.
Whilst we await the EFL decision next month regarding our fate concerning FFP, a number of clubs have been reported to be either on the edge or near it as regards the overspend.
Villa, I understand can now only make loan signings with wage caps etc. This number within the Championship will, in my opinion, escalate as the window continues with the EFL having to tread very carefully as to what, if any, they decide on any punishment toward us.
Simply put, the breaking of the £39m spend which attracts fines and other sanctions is about to involve a fair number of Championship clubs. EFL must now be extremely cautious as to their actions or mayhem will arise.
As regards Blues and the window should suit Garry Monk and his squad with little to disrupt his faithful close-knit squad, knowing that no newcomers are about to rock the boat. Vassell is a massive boost for Monk and his players, with this likeable team member close to joining the cause. Should David Davis return next month, then optimism will spread for a playoff spot. It is quite significant that at this time of atrocious bad management of our finances and all that goes with it, that we fans can turn to our playing squad for comfort and joy.
Now, how many times have we been able to say that?
