On Tuesday 23 December, 2014, Birmingham International Holdings (BIH) will hold their Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel.
At the meeting, Company shareholders will be asked to “consider, and if thought fit, transact the following ordinary business” (a full breakdown can be found here), which includes the re-election of Peter Pannu as an Executive Director of the Company.
Peter Pannu’s tenure at Birmingham City FC has been fraught with issues. From a lack of communication with supporters to the excessive remuneration package he received while acting chairman of the Club, Pannu showed not only a lack of basic leadership, but also a lack of respect for the Club’s true custodians – the fans.
We believe that the re-election of Peter Pannu will see the return of these issues. Thus, as supporters, we must act to ensure that this does not happen – for the best interests of BCFC.
We need to send a clear message to major BIH shareholders in Hong Kong that the re-election of Peter Pannu is not only damaging for our Club, but also damaging for their own business interests. The recent incident concerning inappropriate comments on the Often Partisan website serves to emphasise this point.
In Hong Kong, a businessman’s “face” is everything. While Pannu’s excessive wages, abusive comments and sullen silences have won him no favours here in Birmingham, shareholders and fellow members of the BIH board are not fully aware of the antipathy against him. We need to make them aware that Pannu is the very public face of BIH in Birmingham and his actions reflect poorly on everyone else. By removing him from the Board, it removes one of the key sources of antagonism between BIH and the fans.
By working together, we can ensure that our collective voice is heard by the individuals just shy of 6,000 miles away. To that end, we ask that you consider signing our newly launched online petition supporting our campaign against the re-election of Peter Pannu to the BIH Board.
Signing the petition is quick and easy and only requires you to provide some very basic details including your name, street address and e-mail address. None of these details other than your name will show up on the petition, however you can also opt out of your name being listed if you so wish.
To sign the petition, please click here – and don’t forget to share it with your family and friends!

Peter Pannu is not a fit a proper person to hold office, I strongly urge all shareholders to vote against he’s re-election
please do not reinstate peter pannu he must not come back
Just leave Pannu
time to go you muppet
I’m sick of pannu and all his cronies ruining our football club and getting away with it. We want them gone all together.
Every blues fan despises you so just p*** off!!!
The fans will be heard, keep Pannu out!
I am not convinced that removing PP from the board may be a good thing at this stage. If he is telling the truth about him pushing for a sale, and the ‘good guys’ wanting to hang on to the club then we may be making a mistake. The question is this why do the ‘good guys’ not want to sell? My guess is that they will take a massive loss on the investments that they have made in Blues. If, and it’s a big if GR can sneak us into the play offs and get in the Prem, then the value of the club would be massively increased in value. It’s early days but I would not put my house on GR not having a good shot at it.
Peter Pannu has used BCFC to line his own pockets. His comments this week on the often partisan website have shown his true colours. Any decent company would have thrown him out long ago. Do not under any circumstances, trust this man.
Pannu out. Zigic in
In the name of God,GO!
Get rid of Peter Pannu.
We don’t need people like Pannu involved in the club; it’s like having the Kumars all over again.
Pannu is a joker, not the good kind like Jasper Carrot either, but more the kind of Joker that “is like a dog chasing cars – wouldn’t know what to do if he caught one”.
Your not wanted and not what is needed for OUR club …..
pannu you say you love the club ,if so please just go away and leave us alone i remember the fans singing where has the money gone to you and you flashed your wallet you r a fool So go away
Peter Pannu has let down and embarrassed BIHLand BCFC and their supporters. He should go immediately.
No to reelection
No to Pannu.
Panos appears to be a good board member with the club at heart.
Pannu should never be allowed anywhere near our club again KRO
please just do one, your not welcome here, you are distroying my club, pannu & carsen & BHIL out !!!
Get rid. The man is poison.
Get him out…clean up
Don’t let thus t****r back into our club
The shareholders should vote against this man who has taken a lot more out of our club than he ever put in. Any business man who can make comments like those we have seen this week does not deserve to be running anything above a kindergarten club (maybe not even that).
Sort it out!
His comments on the Often Partisan site this week were unacceptable. He is damaging the club, he cannot be allowed to return.
Delay no more carson. And say no to pannu.
