Lots of Blues fans have been reacting to some incredibly shocking news that has emerged about the hierarchy at the club.
It’s not often I’m left speechless when it comes to things surrounding the club, but this one seriously takes the cake. A special report in The Athletic delved deep into the problems and it pulled out some incredibly fascinating insights including insights into the fallout from various managerial sackings down the years, directors pay doubled during times of financial trouble and that players have been told to speak to Ren directly if they aren’t picked rather than go to the manager, as well as much much more.
Were you stunned by this news coming out?
Now the whole thing is over 6,000 words long so I could never do it justice in trying to summarise the whole thing and I implore you to read it if you can, but those who did read it were certainly left with two simple reactions after they were done; disbelief, or pure anger.

Blues went 13 games unbeaten and everyone forgot that our club is run by clowns#BCFC

If that article is true then Dong Ren is even more mental than I first believed. If you think we’re getting a quality manager to work alongside that, think again.

So Dong Ren, a Birmingham City Director, asked for an office to be built at the training ground, has three magnetic tactic boards in his office & players get told to speak to him if they don’t get picked.
In conclusion our Manager isn’t in control of team selection

I think The Birmingham Mail put it best, ‘What the hell is going on at Blues?’
