One returns, one remains3

The loan deal of West Ham winger Rob Hall has been extended until Saturday 16 February. Blues hoped to keep him for the remainder of the season, but West Ham decided to take a ‘recall’ option up on the deal, meaning they can call him back at any time.
Both parties will review the loan deal on a month-by-month basis, however, the Hammers are unlikely to recall him unless injuries force their hand in the matter.
Hall has played eight times for Blues and has been the main source of attacking threat in recent games. He has picked up deserved man of the match accolades along the way.
Another loanee, Ben Gordon, has returned to his parent club Chelsea.
Elsewhere, Birmingham City PLC have announced a £15.7m profit for the year ending June 2012 and the wage bill has been cut to £25.1m from £45m. However, their annual turnover decreased to £39m from £61.4m.
Thank for the memories Ben, it’s been emotional!
£25 million on wages in the Championship is ridiculous.
It shows there are many others besides Zigic on greedy wages and the club needs to get rid and quickly.
The wage bill should be around half this amount especially as next year the income will see a big drop due to the parachute payment being halved to £8 million.
Have a look at the accounts yourself…director wage a bit high!!!!
