As I said the other day, there seems to be a bit of a trend developing amongst the signings at St Andrew’s.

If any more Spaniards come through the door, we may have to rename the ground to San Andreas, and as someone who played the game as a kid, I wouldn’t be complaining. It would certainly sound a lot better than Trillion Trophy at the very least.

The latest signing by Pep Clotet is Alvaro Gimenez, a Spanish forward who comes to the club from UD Almeria. Yes, you read that right, he’s a forward. Hopefully this doesn’t change the negotiations to try and sign George Puscas.

In fact, Puscas was on a lot of Blues fans minds when the signing was announced. With reports that the Romanian is on his way to Reading instead of Birmingham, there was some concern as to whether or not this was the only forward they were likely to be bringing in during the last few days of the transfer window.

Others though, took the signing at face value and were more concerned with welcoming their new striker to the club. Saluting the board for getting another astute signing over the line.

  • This striker sounds a bargain worth the risk and he wanted to sign for us unlike puscas and 10 million pounds is a big risk. Norwich went up and found a striker for a simliar price and welcome help for jukey another bargain always puts everything out on the pitch. A few more tomorrow blues and we should be okay. Up the blues.

  • ARO Seems to be in the same mould as the juke but is a goal poacher instead of running himself into the ground..will be interesting with more providers …

  • Great signing blues one more striker and we will be fine. When we gel we’ll have a young exciting team with age on there side will also bit of experience there already may do a Norwich City. At least the board have not been scared to spend the money wisely on the next generation reminds of the young leeds team many years ago. Hope Saturdayshe performance is a one off but on the bright side we won up the blues.

  • It’s interesting that he’s been given squad number 24, as the no.9 shirt is available does that mean there’s one more striker coming in?

  • Not sure the Spanish influx will handle the transition to the Championship. If they don’t we are in deep trouble – would have preferred Puscas.

  • First why vessell good enough for swansea / cardiff but not blues second this guy is not a striker hes a winger playing in the 2nrd division oc. Spain about like our 2 nd division last season he got 19 goals true but his best before that was 9 his record is about 1 in 5 we spend all our time signing midfielders the nb realise suddenly we are missing 22 goals and try to sign 3 on last day what a slip shod disorganised set up.

  • Oh dear… very worrying indeed! The Spanish second division is not anywhere near the quality of the Championship. I’m worried about the change of formation and style, it’ll take time for the team to adjust by which time we could be in trouble and their heads will go down. We do need passing midfielders but there’s been too much emphasis on strengthening this area and not enough on the keeper, central defence and particularly striker positions. Might have £20 on us to get relegated at 5 to 1. It’ll soften the blow. Sorry, I know it’s negative but I do fear the worst..
