Wednesday saw Blues concede three goals at home for the fifth game in a row, ensuring that for the second time in a month Pep Clotet and the BCFC board agreed to part ways – this time with immediate effect. Now, for the third time in four seasons Blues face trying to bring in a manager to stop the rot and prevent them from falling into the relegation trap door.
A late Josh Onomah winner ensured that Blues horrendous run without a win continued at Craven Cottage on Saturday. With teams around Blues continuing to pick up points the pressure is starting to stack up and the vitriol towards Pep Clotet is getting louder.
Kerys Harrop and Rachel Williams announced their departure from Birmingham City Women this week, adding to a post season exodus which has seen no less than 10 players leave in the close season. With no permanent head coach and a poor season saved by curtailment, the future seems bleak for Blues Women.
Birmingham City crumbled to a 3-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night at St Andrew’s. The defeat leaves Blues still only seven points above the relegation zone with Hull City to play Middlesbrough this evening. While it is likely that Blues are safe this season, bums around the second city are definitely starting to squeak.
Blues limped to their sixth draw in eight league games at St Andrew’s on Saturday against Hull City. A woeful first half saw Blues 2-0 down in quick order, and even though Gary Gardner and Dan Crowley managed to pull Blues level within 15 minutes of the restart it took a late Gardner header for Blues to snatch a point.
It’s only been a week since it was announced that Birmingham City Head Coach Pep Clotet is to step down at the end of the season and the rumour mill is in full flow. There have been a multitude of names already bounced around as potential successors to Clotet in the press and on social media.
Birmingham City confirmed on Monday morning that Head Coach Pep Clotet is to leave the club at the end of the 2019/20 season. The announcement on the official website confirmed that Clotet is to step down and that the club have agreed to allow the Catalonian coach to “pursue other coaching opportunities”.
It’s not even close to the summer and already the rumours are flying about a potential sale of Jude Bellingham. The 16-year-old wonderkid has been scouted by what feels like every major club in Europe and the hype train seems to be in full throttle – which means a very different kind of summer challenge for the club and the board.
Birmingham City’s accounts for the year ending June 30, 2019 became available at Companies House on Tuesday. Once again they made for some grim reading, although there have been some improvements in revenues and amount of loss made.
I’m proud to confirm I’ve joined forces with the We Are Birmingham website and other fans to do my bit to improve things at Birmingham City. I’ve always held that fans can effect change, and I’m hoping we can prove it. Our first action has been to directly get in contact with Birmingham Sports Holdings Chairman Zhao Wenqing to ensure that he and the owner understand some of the things going on at St Andrew’s. Note that this letter was sent prior to the news breaking about the club being charged by the EFL.
