Yesterday I talked about directorial changes at Birmingham City FC. Today I wanted to catch up on what has changed in Hong Kong – and how I think power is shifting away from the fragrant harbours to mainland China.
Saturday saw the first victory for Birmingham City under the stewardship of Gianfranco Zola. A solitary goal by Lukas Jutkiewicz was enough to see Blues beat 10 man Fulham and finally get the winless monkey off Zola’s back.
I think it’s safe to say 2016 has been a controversial year in all walks of life. The sacking of Gary Rowett and the subsequent immediate appointment of Gianfranco Zola has been one of the biggest things to divide fans since the arrest of Carson Yeung on suspicion of money laundering.
