In Recent weeks a new Group has appeared on Facebook calling themselves BCFC Fans United Protest Group aimed at giving fans the chance to be part of a peaceful protest.
The Group was put together by a few fans fed up with the goings on at the club ref the sale and lack of investment in the playing side which is hampering Lee Clark in his attempt to make sure BCFC remain in the Championship mid-table ranks until such a time when investment is available to strengthen the current squad.
While personally i have never been in favour of a protest, Since the people it would be aimed at would not be in attendance, I do think it’s got to the stage where fans feel that they need to do something or at least be seen to be doing something and this group certainly seems to have gained the support of many Bluenose Facebook users 1366 so far and 227 Twitter Followers.
Any protest would need to be peaceful for it to have any impact for the right reasons just like the Coventry City fans did recently, At same time being vocal in letting the powers that be whether that be Club, FA, or Government representatives showing that Birmingham City Fans have had enough of the carry on behind the scenes.
A statement from BCFC Fans United Group Said
I will try to keep this as short and to the point as possible. what we (and by we i mean every single fan who wants to be involved) are trying to achieve is a successful protest/protests against the owners of BCFC we will not exclude those who wish to go and those who wish not to games as this can and will only work if we go about it in a unified way. this is about us the fans and how we need to act before it is too late. keep right on and here is a link to our facebook and twitter account.
A protest was planned pre-season but for one reason or another it did not materialise, but now it seems that the time has come for fans to show what they think of the situation and Unite since all we care about is BCFC.
No Sale, Not knowing what the future will bring, This needs sorting out & Now is the time for Blues fans to voice their disapproval of how our club is being dealt a bad hand by the present owners.
A representative can also be heard on Monday’s Blues Show http://sports-radio.co.uk/radio/ 7.30pm – 9pm
