He’s sending out quite the mixed message here I’d say.

On one hand, he’s telling us quite rightly not to panic and to realise this is a long-term project, but at the same time he hasn’t exactly given us anything to make us more confident we can start off on the right foot.

Taking to social media yesterday, noted Blues journalist Brian Dick gave fans a brief update on what is happening in the transfer market, and if you’re one of those fans that’s looking to a quick solution to our problems at either end of the pitch, particularly upfront, then it wasn’t the best of updates.

How much will Blues spend in this window?

More than £15m

More than £15m

£15m or less

£15m or less

To some extent I think that Dick is right to try and pass on a sense of calm in the current climate, and with the transfer window still having just under a month to go there is still some time to sort things out.

However, if we don’t get quality players on the pitch pretty soon, then good results are unlikely to follow, and given what Aitor Karanka has said about the player’s mentality, that doesn’t bode well for how we go forward to start off the campaign.

Edit – Since writing this, it appears as though Neil Etheridge is set for a medical, so feel free to adjust your feelings and understanding of this article accordingly.

  • We could have got through the weekend without Etheridge who will probably be on the bench anyway. We never looked like scoring in the last match and the first team scored only one goal in pre-season. A half fit Jukey is not likely to help. We accept that its a long term project but with no strikers on the books now we need to act NOW

  • Seems AK is banking on Sanchez – we have been through this before with Giminez, Jota and Montero and to some extent Hogan – none provided the consistency we needed to replace Che. Striker should have been the first priority ahead of keeper and the batch of midfielders we have now acquired. if we have no punch upfront we are always going to be on the backfoot. In a way I would have preferred relegation than another “barely surviving” season in the Championship.
