Oh no, this can’t be happening.

Remember last week when Birmingham confirmed one of the best signings for some time in Ivan Sunjic? Remember when the fans went mad that they were able to pick up a player of his quality?

Well, we may have jumped the gun on all that. Turns out that the deal isn’t 100% over the line yet. According to Brian Dick and Richard Wilford, the Croatian is still waiting on international clearance before he can pull on the blue shirt.

Whilst it was known when the deal was announced, the fact we are so close to the opening game of the season against Brentford and this still hasn’t been sorted out is slightly nervy, even if it is ‘practically done’

Nervy though is probably an understatement based on what Blues fans have been saying on Twitter. Given the club’s recent history with the authorities, this news was enough for Birmingham fans to start getting anxious. What next? Is Moha Ramos going to get food poisoning?

I think I finally understand what Mario Balotelli was going on about with the ‘Why Always Me’ thing from years ago.

  • The international clearance will be done soon it takes longer for some players depending on their countries of origin.

  • Would be more sense for the window to close before the season starts then some teams would not have an unfair advantage ..

  • We somehow seem capable of stuffing everything up – did nothing for weeks then last ditch efforts-nowhere near ready for the first game.
