Well, it’s good to know that some part of the club’s future is pretty secure.

Even if our place in the league isn’t totally secure at this stage in the minds of some Birmingham City fans.

The club announced yesterday that young forward Josh Andrews had signed a new deal at the club, with him now being tied down until the summer of 2022, with the option of another year on top. The 18-year-old is already a bit of a force for his age, standing at 6’3 with the club describing him as the ‘focal point of the attack because of his size’.

And it’s that height that has brought comparisons with a former big man that used to play up front for us.

But whilst his long-term future seems to be secure, there were some fans who wanted to see him a lot sooner, perhaps even this Saturday against Fulham.

Are you concerned with the amount of young players on the bench?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given that we’ve seen plenty of academy players on the bench so far since the restart, it wouldn’t totally be out of the realms of possibility.

What about you? What do you make of this news surrounding Andrews?

    Judging by wednesdays farce he has no chance of playing but the usual numptees will be on the team sheet

    We don’t do substitutions. I think the EFL may have banned us.

    Why didn’t he bring on Munce Boyd, Jayden Reid or even Roberts whose long throw may have added another element. Pep looks like he doesn’t care and the team is playing like it’s just going through the motions. We may as well try Josh Andrews as the two main strikers were absolutely awful. If Villa were hoping to get £5m for Scott Hogan forget it – £1m tops.
