The Quiet Life

It’s easy to tell it’s quiet around Birmingham City. The local press are left writing pieces on the five things we didn’t know about the coaching staff or which former player thinks we should be sold this week; Blues fans on social media have their gaze turned to the circus across the Expressway and I’m left scratching around for a fluff piece to fill the website.
