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.
Get this board out now!! Not fit to run any business let alone a football club!! It’s time to go @XuandongRen @Birmingnese you have entered the history of this club for the wrong reasons 😔 another transfer embargo probably! We are going down 😢 #bcfc

Owners need to put the club up for sale. Not fit to run any football club anywhere.

Regardless of the outcome, think this is the final nail in TTA’s collective coffin, expect to see carnage for the rest of the season.

Taken them best part of 12 months to charge us for not selling players? Tinpot.

Do you fear that another points deduction is coming?
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.
