In recent times, when Birmingham City’s owner has appeared on the front page of the Financial Times it’s been as the harbinger of bad news. However, times have changed since Shelby Companies Limited have taken charge at St Andrew’s and Tom Wagner’s picture on the front of the FT was all about Blues challenging the authorities for the right reasons.
Despite the unbeaten start to the league season for Blues, rumours broke on Thursday afternoon that the club have identified Wayne Rooney as a replacement for John Eustace as Head Coach.
There’s an old cliché about a week being a long time in football. It’s meant to symbolise how quickly things can change in the game and this hasn’t been typified more than the last fifty days at St Andrew’s since Shelby Companies Limited took over.
