Whose fault?

by | 9 Apr 2016 |

Birmingham City’s loss to Brighton was disappointing and left a lot of people trying to explain it or apportion blame. Gary Rowett struggled to explain why his team had conceded goals at two set pieces and said they seemed to have run out of steam at the wrong time. Supporters argued online about who was to blame – Carson Yeung, the manager, the team, or individual players. Brian Dick, in the Birmingham Mail, said,

“There have been mistakes along the way, and in my layman’s opinion several on Tuesday night, but – and I’ve said this many times before – the real culprits are the people who put Birmingham City in such a parlous financial position – not those who are trying to sort it out nor work under the current circumstances.”

I would agree that the manager and players aren’t perfect but the underlying problems stem from the ownership situation. The long-term future of the club depends more on the decisions being taken in Hong Kong than on what happens on the pitch. That’s why we, at Blues Trust, believe that Daniel Ivery’s investigative work is important and that it is a good idea for him to go to Hong Kong to try to get some answers on what is going on over there.

(Blues Trust will be having a Question and Answer session with Daniel before his trip and members who have expressed an interest in attending that should have received a message with the details.)
