Insipid Blues Lose to Hibs in Flat Friendly

Birmingham City went down 1-0 to Hibernian at Easter Road this afternoon in a very flat performance. Hibs, who put out a virtual second string side, didn’t have the lion’s share of possession but looked threatening in front of goal and it was no surprise when James Keatings finally broke the deadlock.

June Swoon

June is upon us and in my eyes anyway, the transfer season proper. With football contracts traditionally expiring on July 1 this is the time of year now to tie up the Bosman free transfers and to get a head start on who will come in before pre-season starts up again.
