When it rains, it pours.

That’s probably the best way to describe being a Birmingham City fan right now.

Less than a year since the club were handed a nine-point deduction for breaching Financial Fair Play rules, it looks as if the Blues have managed to get themselves in trouble with the authorities once again.

A report in The Telegraph says that the Blues have breached EFL regulations ponce again after  “failing to adhere to the business plan imposed by the EFL last March”. Whilst that report suggests that the Blues could be facing another points deduction, a story later on Birmingham Live stated that the club are not expecting to face a similar punishment to last year in regards to a points deduction.

So what punishment, if any, the Blues are going to get, we’ll just have to wait and see, but that hasn’t stopped fans from hammering those in charge for getting the club in this situation.

Do you fear that another points deduction is coming?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Regardless of the outcome though, the running of the club seriously needs to be brought into question if this is the second time in less than a year the club are going to be going through a process like this.

  • Its the rules that are killing us not the owners. This problem stems from overspending, yet all we hear are calls from fans to spend more.
    These EFL rules are stopping clubs from investing and developing. Clubs are having to find alternative methods to invest money including selling the ground for 3.5 times its book value.
    The only thing the owners are guilty of is throwing money at the wrong managers and players. Yes we can blame Zola and Harry but they trusted them to bring in the players to get us promoted and signed the cheques. Hence the change of strategy this season.

  • I have never advocated spending money on new players because any Blues fan with half a brain would know that we are skint and have been for years and now we are virtually run by the EFL and thats why we will now only see free transfers and out of contract players being bought in and of course the Under 23 players promoted. Far too many mistakes in the past trying to buy our way into the Premiership, far too much money wasted on sacking Managers (Zola apart) and big time Charlies.
