Gossip Folks Week Two

As regular readers of the site will know, I’m keeping an eye on all the transfer rumours in the newspapers this window with a view to looking at accuracy etc.

I’ve updated the spreadsheet I’m keeping – link here – and as you can see it’s still fairly quiet in the newspapers about Blues. I’m expecting the rumours to start ratcheting up now the window is actually open.

In follow-up to last week’s article, Colin Tattum wrote in the Birmingham Mail that there was no evidence of Curtis Davies being offered to Newcastle (as intimated by the local press up there). Blues have also confirmed that Jake Jervis (Preston NE) and Akwasi Asante (Northampton Town) have gone out on 28 day youth loans to gain some first team football experience.

I am looking to update this further around January 9.

    I didn’t know you were doing this, but what a great idea. It’s similar to that of footballtransferleague. They don’t update the current squads of each team but it’s definitely worth a look. They also identify the most accurate and reliable newspapers for bcfc.

    If promotion was a lost cause you could imagine all sorts of sales, but as it isn’t it is very poor business sense to sell assets to fund working capital

  • jeff says:

    i,d say any sales will be minimal as promotion is very much up for grabs.im sure the board can see they could wipe out any debt with promotion.may need to trade a bit to keep the club breathing though.i read c.h said he thought he would be working with the same group in feb.truth is none of us know the true state of b.c.f.c.every day that passes like today is a good day in my eyes for us

    All you have to do is realise that everything in the Mirror is rumour and speculation for example Redmond for Man City at £6m? Simply made up

  • Arthur says:

    the club is running on empty at the moment. What kills most businesses is cash-flow not profitability. We will need to sell to pay our creditors as our banking credit facilities have been severely restricted. If we don’t pay the creditors – liquidation, simple as that. So selling assets in this situation makes good business sence.

    rumour from Daily Mail 6/1/12..Liverpool interested in 10m rated Redmond also strong interest from Man City edited by Steve Jones
