Happily Ever After

We’re less than a week away from the completion of what must be the longest-running saga in football – the takeover of Birmingham City by Trillion Trophy Asia. Yes, it’s true it’s going to be anti-climactic because it’s actually the shares in the holding company resuming trading with a different person at the helm – but this is it yeah? Happily ever after?

Jonathan Grounds made his 100th appearance in a Blues shirt on Saturday against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Despite being much maligned since signing on a Bosman free contract from Oldham, the left-back has been one of the most consistent selections in the Blues team.

Mediocrity and Boredom

A late goal denied Blues all three points on Tuesday as Gary Rowett’s men continued their unbeaten start to the league season. David Davis’ first half finish after Clayton Donaldson had his penalty save was cancelled out late on as one again Craig Davies scored past the team he supported as a youngster.
