This transfer window at Birmingham City has certainly taken on a new dimension since last week’s release of the club’s financial position.

With bewildering figures that are hard to absorb, I for one, am pleased just to have a club in existence. Dropping down the league has also dispelled the expectation of fresh signings in order to mount a serious challenge for a playoff spot.

Acceptance of the club’s situation has resulted in a new calmness of where we are and therefore transfers etc and up to now, the window has been one of extreme quiet. Things change obviously in football and none other than at Blues where literally anything can happen.

This time around however, I feel this window will be regarded as one of caution and a steady approach just to secure safety and hopefully another campaign in the Championship. When a ‘wake up’ call like last week’s finances came to light, it hit home to myself that how much this ‘hobby’ of ours is anything but a simple pastime – more of a way of life.

Between now, and the end of the current season, we will no doubt see more issues thrown up at the club, but hopefully, none which put further anxieties into supporters minds. We have a football club that we live and breathe and we have hopes that one day we will be challenging for better things, but above all, we seek stability.

This transfer window may well produce a few comings and goings but the clamour for exciting new recruits is not in my opinion expected. Get the points for safety, get the players disciplined and get the formations right is the priority.

Next season will be the time for renewed hope.

  • Consolidation is the term I would use and I trust the club and staff to do what’s right for the clubs stability and development. Would be nice to see a player or two who can add to and improve the squad but if they cant be found within our budget then we just have to wait

  • All our transfer windows are quiet or silent it’s always been that way and it’s very rare we sign any of the players we are linked with because most of those stories are made up crap.


  • The owners are a joke, and they need to leave because I think the fans had enough. There’s no going back from this now we want them out.

  • Problem is Ian Davey that we haven’t had a queue of buyers interested in buying our club. WBA,Villa,Wolves,are sold within minutes of being put up for sale. BCFC has a stigma and the last decade has done nothing to improve our image. Carsen Yeung and now TTA is just about as good as it gets.

  • Big problem, we are skint and all the transfer stories we see and hear about are bull, our hands are tied by the EFL, all we can expect if anything is something on the cheap . We are probably in the same kind of situation as Bolton,Portsmouth and Sunderland if the truth is known and could not sell the Club if we wanted to because its huge mountain of debts.Has anyone noticed that our dear friends Stockdale,Grounds and Kieta are still with us ???? dont hear too much about them, so much for moving them on, hanging it out until their contracts run out, still we will be a few quid better off in June.

  • I’m more worried about players being sold than the likelihood of bringing in new ones. If we keep our best players including Juke, I’ll be happy (relatively)!
