The Stuart Parnaby Affair

It’s been quite the busy weekend for me personally, and so it wasn’t until I’d finally returned home late on Saturday evening that I heard the news with regards to the non-signing of Stuart Parnaby. There’s been quite a lot said on the net about how the situation played out, and I thought I should add my two-pennorth for good measure.

One story that has come out in the last week at Blues is that former Blues players James McFadden and Stuart Parnaby are training with the club – ostensibly to keep fit but also to try and get new contracts.

Unlucky for the Black Cats?

Blues can take another massive step to survival with a win against the Black Cats of Sunderland tomorrow, whilst pushing former manager Steve Bruce’s charges into a relegation dogfight. Whilst the game doesn’t have the same “must win” feeling of the last home match against Bolton, there is the sense that defeat would properly drop us back into trouble

It’s a fact of life that when players are out of the first team, their stock on messageboards rises as fans clamour for their return – especially during a run of poor performances and/or poor results. It doesn’t matter how poor those players have been in other games that season; their omission is clearly what is wrong with the team. Today, I’m going to make my nomination for a player to come into the team – step forward Mr David Murphy.

The Left Side

It’s an important match for Birmingham City tomorrow in the race to beat the drop from the Premiership, against one of their rivals in the relegation fight Blackburn Rovers. Ewood Park has been a tough place for Blues to get points, with Blues not winning there since 1968, suffering five defeats in their last eight trips there. Defeat to Blackburn wouldn’t be the end of the world, but this is a game where Blues should be aiming to win to stay out of the drop zone and maybe force Blackburn into it.

Contracts

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

As the 2010-11 season draws to a close, eleven Birmingham City players are in a position where they don’t know what club they will play for next season. Under the Bosman ruling, they are free to talk to any club outside of the English League system about a contract for next year, but will have to wait until June 1 before they can discuss terms with another English team. I thought I’d take a look at those eleven players in a bit more detail.

Speculation

It’s getting to the time of year when the transfer window is almost upon us, and I thought I’d take a look at our squad, to see if I could maybe predict some of who might be coming and going. Garry o’Connor is the obvious person to look at. Having signed a six month deal […]
