BCFC: The Wang Yaohui Investigation

It wasn’t exactly a full chamber when Shabana Mahmood MP talked about the travails surrounding the ownership of Birmingham City in the House of Commons on Monday night, but hopefully it will be another step on the journey to better regulation in football.

BCFC Takeover: Crypto, Chrysler and Consortiums

The takeover saga at Birmingham City took another twist on Monday morning with a report in the Daily Mail that “cryptocurrency businessman” Haydn Snape of the Dubai-based Decentralised Investment Group was a new backer within the Maxco consortium led by Maxi Lopez and Paul Richardson. This was followed by a further report from the Mirror that Snape was merely a conduit to American real estate magnate Michael Fuchs.

BCFC: Time to Support Eustace

For the first time in a long time, hope has a home at St Andrew’s. A good 2-0 win against Queens Park Rangers on Friday elevated Blues into the top half of the table and has got some supporters dreaming of a top six position come the end of the season. While the playoffs are still realistically some way off, things definitely look to be brightening up for Birmingham City.

BCFC: Trusting the Process

As Blues head into the international break, things on the pitch feel better than they have done for a while. While Blues were unable to continue their run of wins at home to Coventry, there seems to be a very positive feeling around the way the team is playing and optimism that it will improve further.

BCFC: Inconsistency and Patience

Birmingham City face West Bromwich Albion tonight in their first game for 12 days following the postponement of the Swansea game due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. While any momentum picked up from the away win against Preston might have been lost, it’s given John Eustace a bit of extra time to work with his injury depleted squad.

BCFC: The Club Update

September has started well for Birmingham City. Saturday saw Blues pick up three points on the road against Preston North End against a team who hadn’t conceded a goal yet this season at a place that hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Blues over the years. Off the pitch, the club released an update which while sparse on detail did finally confirm officially that the Maxco consortium are in the process of buying a shareholding in the club.

BCFC: Victory Has A Thousand Fathers

Transfer deadline day was a curious one for Birmingham City fans.
