Blues held their most recent quarterly supporters’ forum on November 7th. Selected supporters and supporters groups were invited to St Andrew’s to ask questions of staff about the way the club is run.
Radio silence on potential incoming transfers for Blues broke yesterday thanks to an Instagram story posted by Saint-Etienne player (and former Blues target) Lois Diony. The picture of Jeremie Bela holding up a shirt with his name and number on has caused a buzz since it was shared by Blues fans on Twitter.
A 1-0 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday meant that Blues lie 12th in the Championship, nine points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion and five points behind sixth-placed Preston. With about a quarter of the season now gone, the big question is if Blues can mount the promotion push desired by the club’s owners.
A third successive defeat in the Championship has left many fans including myself feeling that it could be the end for Pep Clotet. The luck Blues enjoyed in the early games appears to have run out and the imbalances within the squad have been left brutally exposed.
Former Birmingham City manager Garry Monk was appointed boss of Sheffield Wednesday on Friday. The 40-year-old takes over from caretaker boss Lee Bullen, who will remain at the club as assistant manager to Monk. Monk’s arrival at Hillsborough will finally bring some answers to questions following his departure from Blues.

July comes to an end today and the new season is a matter of days away. After all the upheaval at St Andrew’s this summer, Blues will face Brentford this weekend in what should be their last ever league meeting at Griffin Park. Are Blues ready for it?
Birmingham City announced on Sunday that both of the Spanish players that they had taken on tour with the club to Portugal have been signed. Both Agustin “Agus” Medina and Ivan Guzman have signed two year deals with the club, but 28 year old Guzman will be immediately loaned out to UE Cornella for the season.
Blues announced on Saturday the addition of Francisco “Paco” Herrera to the coaching staff at St Andrews. The 65-year-old comes to Birmingham City with a wealth of experience at clubs in Spain, along with a spell as assistant manager, chief analyst and scout for Rafa Benitez at Liverpool.
One of the focal points of the coverage of Blues’ return to pre-season training has been Jude Bellingham. The 15-year-old attacking midfielder has featured prominently in imagery and videos posted by the club on social media as they look to showcase their homegrown talent.
