I didn’t think it would quite be this bad.

As I’m sure you are aware, Birmingham City have been plunged into a bit of financial chaos in recent days (I don’t think chaos is too harsh a term, do you?). A recent story in The Telegraph documented that the Blues have been charged by the EFL for breaching regulations.

Now the financial side of it, I’m not smart enough to know about, so I’m going to be leaning on other sources to guide us through this, but a report from Birmingham Live showed just how much bother the club is in right now.

There are other details to it, but the biggest takeaway from the article is that “The forecasts show that BCFC needs additional funding of around £54.2m from BSHL for the period from July 2019 to December 2020.”

And when this amount of money made its way onto social media last night, Birmingham City fans were not pleased at all, with many of them casting even more doom and gloom on the club and some of them raising questions about the long-term future of the club.

Do you fear that another points deduction is coming?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It just can’t get any worse can it?

  • Just goes to show you cant buy success in football anymore
    Even some of the biggest clubs in the world are having to change philosophy. Over time the big earners will find it difficult to get new contracts which isn’t such a bad thing as it makes way for more young players to get into the game

  • Boycott the remaining games this season and support Coventry City. If the board had appointed a decent manager instead of Pep we could still be promotion prospects – instead its a bleak second half of the season with a cluless Head Coach, demotivated players and highly discontented fans. We are going to start next season where Bolton are now. Chinese New Year coming up – what do we wish for TTA???

  • It’s the money owing not deferred.
    From reading the papper I’m sure it’s deferred income. Which would mean the money is only payable if the lending party decides to to leave or withdraw interest in the business.

    Either way it’s not good good because it will be very hard to sell a club that has massive debts which will need to be paid buy a new owner.
