I’m not sure this is quite the response that the club wanted.
But then again, given all the stuff that has been going on in the boardroom, I don’t think that there can be many surprises that the fans reacted the way that they did.
In news that brought great joy to me at the very least, Miguel Fernandez signed a contract extension at St Andrew’s, keeping him at the club until the end of the season. He has been pretty successful so far for the U23 team when it comes to scoring goals, so it’s a contract that is pretty much deserved.
However, Blues fans weren’t exactly in the mood to celebrate when the news came through. Rather than taking the time to appreciate the fact that a somewhat talented youngster is going to be on their books, hopefully leading to an opportunity in the first team somewhere down the line, they instead tried to bring the conversation around to what is going on upstairs at the club.
You sure we can afford this?

Pointless really isnt it , the club will not give him a game in case his stock goes up in june and we lose him . So what's the point unless both sides commit to a longer contract ? Hes either good enough or hes not either way make a proper decision

Do you fear that another points deduction is coming?
To their credit though, they do bring up some very interesting points.
