I think this tweet sums it up perfectly.
The Spanish revolution didn’t work at Birmingham, so now it looks as if we could be going Croatian. If only we could somehow poach Slaven Bilic from the Baggies, then we could really kick it into gear.
The latest report when it comes to the Blues’ summer transfer target surrounds midfielder Lovro Majer, with Croatian outlet Sportske claiming that we are ‘very close’ to signing the 22-year-old. He will of course join up with fellow countryman Ivan Sunjic, who we purchased from the same club last summer.
Could this be a perfect dynamic duo of countrymen that could fire Blues forward, similar to Demba Ba & Papis Cisse when they were at Newcastle United? I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.
How much will Blues spend in this window?
More than £15m
£15m or less
However, when the news reached social media, it wasn’t necessarily who we were bringing in that was troubling for supporters. Indeed, it was the way he’s being brought in that seems to be the issue and spreading just a little bit of concern in people’s minds.
Just proves the next manager won’t have a say in the signings

Surely it should be the manager signing the players he wants- so will he just be a figure head when appointed?

How can we be signing a player without a manager? Just goes to show who makes the decisions at BCFC.
