Birmingham City are no different to most clubs when it comes to transfer windows.

Players coming and going are banded around like confetti. Actual reality is not on the agenda, very little materialises. However, yesterday’s suggestion that Marcus Maddison of Peterborough was a target and a serious one at that, certainly caught my attention.

This player is more than decent and can add an edge to our team. Not a squad player but an actual starter. Maddison is a player I have followed over a few seasons and have always felt his directness and toughness is just the attributes required for B9.

This more than passing interest by Blues must end up as a concrete signing, not necessarily for this campaign, but for the serious stuff starting next season. My immediate thoughts turn to Bellingham who would certainly benefit by the presence of Maddison, who would take the rough and create an attacking option. Apart from this player there really is nothing worth mentioning that would change our season, and that includes the goalkeeping position.

Again that is best left until the summer. With the Spanish samplers slowly departing in the form of Medina and the expected Villalba, normality is slowly being restored. Add Maddison to Davis, Gardner and the fans favourite Keifenbeld and the true Bluenose backbone begins to resurrect. Certainly not a backward step, more of a sensible approach to life in the Championship for a team that wants a genuine chance of breaking into a top six position.

  • Certainly fits into the Blues mould but I’m not getting my hope’s up as Charlton have had talks and are continuing the talks. Reports state we haven’t spoken to him or his representatives yet and others say we are trying to do a part exchange deal, so as frustrating as these things are we just have to wait until BCFC make an anouncement, that is if one is even close.

  • Yesterday it was said we were holding talks now we understand we haven’t even been given permission to talk to him we want to give money plus a player well what the player we offer doesnt want to drop a league which is sure to mean less money. brentford are now after him it’s my guess we will end up not getting him and I dont think we will sign and named forward .I just dont believe any of it midfield isnt our main need when clotet says he knows nothing of who’s coming and who’s going ,it says it all he is just a mouth Peace for the owners

  • Bcfc is a mess we have a board who know absolutely nothing of how football works. we no one such as a general manager who knows anything about football . A manager who sees players signed behind his back and is told who he must have in the side .a german/Chinese players who never been seen with the exception of sunjic and crowley clotets signings if they are his have been a joke.

  • Brian Vaughan has a point. This is why Bellingham has to be plucked away from our owners clutches and developed properly. Nobody would deny him that. Pep Clotet may be a good guy but any puppet who has strings attached is not for the serious minded.

  • Would love to see him at Birmingham but not confident at getting him because a) Brentford have a plan for the future WE DO NOT and will probably get promoted this season b) Charlton have new owners and have a plan for the future too so those two clubs have great selling points.

  • Highly unlikely we will get Maddison as it stands at present. Bellingham being sold to Man Utd with a view to him staying at Blues on loan for the next 18 months. Oh arn’t we so lucky supporting a rag&tag club with no ambition other than being a bloody embarrassment!
