If we believe all we read in the press then anything that moves in B9 is available – except for Lee Clark. It would be astonishing if it were true. I just can’t believe a hard-nosed businessman like Pannu would let a situation get so out of control. So many combinations and factors will come into play in the next few days. Who is sold, or more importantly who remains. Are any investors out there waiting for their moment?
A few weeks ago Pannu was reasonably bullish and holding out for a figure his employers demand. He appeared to be holding a winning hand. It now looks like desperation and potential administration if the cards don’t add up.
The short-term future of Birmingham City will be determined by the playing staff left come the end of January. Depending on who those players are will dictate our financial plight. If Zigic doesn’t move on he may well score the goals that keep us in the Championship – but equally his wages could destroy us. Any other sales would be a short-term fix just extending the painful demise. It’s going to be a tough few months on and off the field.
It may transpire Pannu had a losing had all along.
All we can do is be positive – be proud of our club and its history. Support the manager, players and hard-working staff. Laugh at the Villa!
