Editorial: Keep Right On

Once again, Birmingham City enter the last game of a season unsure of which division they will spend the next season in. While the situation is not quite as desperate as it has been in previous seasons, defeat to Fulham could ensure Blues go down to the third tier for the first time since the 1994/5 season.

BCFC: Where Did It All Go Right?

A comeback 2-1 victory over Sheffield United leaves Birmingham City two places and five points above the dropzone, with just three games left for Barnsley to save themselves.

BCFC: Directors 101

One of the more interesting things to emerge for me during the managerial change at Birmingham City last week was the number of Blues fans who were unsure as to who could actually make the decision to remove Steve Cotterill. With this in mind, I’ve put together this article outlining the Birmingham City board in full to try to offer a better insight into just who wields the power.

BCFC: The Broken Axis

A while back on this website I termed three members of the “inner circle” the axis of incompetence for the way I felt that they were running affairs at the club. I’m given to understand that the axis has lost two members with both Darren Dein and Jeff Vetere losing their influence on the club.

BSH: The Elusive Mr King – Part 4

Previously on almajir.net, I have written about Wang Yaohui aka “Mr King” and his connections with various shareholders in Birmingham Sports Holdings along with the company chairman Zhao Wenqing.

BCFC: Time To Talk

Four defeats on the spin and once again, things seem to be looking grim at St Andrew’s. In just a couple of weeks I’ve seen people going from offering public apologies to manager Steve Cotterill to demanding his head once again.
