So, it looks like I’m not the only one that is impressed by what I’ve seen.
I spoke yesterday about how excited I was at Birmingham City’s new signing Mikel San Jose, and the kind of impact he could have on the squad. And it seems as if we’re getting admirers from outside the club as well.
Speaking on social media after the announcement, journalist Alan Nixon felt that we had picked up an incredibly talented player, with one slight caveat attached to it:
Hell of a player at this peak https://t.co/K36CfpCwga

Blues will sign ____ more players this window?
Now whilst mentioning he was good ‘at his peak’ might seem like cause for concern seeing as he’s 31 years old, in fairness we don’t really need him to be that at a La Liga level to be effective for us. If he’s 75% of the player that he’s been in the past (that’s worst-case scenario seeing as he’s only 31), then I think we’ve still got an excellent Championship level player on our hands.
What about you? What do you make of this signing?
