I don’t want to say that the fat lady is singing.

However, I do get the sense that she’s started to do her warmup exercises and started to make her way to the side of the stage.

As @almajir pointed out yesterday following the signing of Scott Hogan, I’m really struggling to find where Birmingham City are likely to go next when it comes to the transfer window.  That’s not to say that we are well and truly done, there’s still plenty of time to do some deals, and the club do seem to be keeping an eye on making some moves still, but just where do the club turn next?

There’s no real position that we are in desperate need of, much in the same way that we were crying out for another goalkeeper or centre-forward before the deals for Neil Etheridge and the aforementioned Hogan were completed.

Blues will sign ____ more players this window?







You could make the argument for right-back, just in case anything unforeseen were to happen to Maxime Colin, but looking at the teams that Aitor Karanka put out in pre-season, I get the feeling he’ll lean on the young players in that situation with players like Josh Cogley.

I might also hear that we could do with an experienced third centre-forward to play in rotation with Lukas Jutkiewicz and Hogan, but much in a similar scenario, I think that Adan George will take up that responsibility.

And I don’t want us to be buying just for the sake of buying, they should be players that allow us to make an instant impact in the team, and on the face of it, I just can’t see which players that would be available that could do that role for us.

What about you? Do you see Birmingham making any more signings this window?

    We have apparently signed yet another Spaniard – yet another defender! Plenty of 0-0 results coming up. Any one remember the last time we scored 3 goals in a game?
