Reasons to be positive

by | 10 Jun 2016 |

There are reasons for Blues fans to be positive even though there are some similarities between the impending takeover of Birmingham City by Trillion Trophy Asia and the change of ownership that took place seven years ago, in October 2009. Both processes have been protracted and in both instances not much was known about the new owners. Thankfully, there are also some differences.

I found it very reassuring to hear Daniel Ivery, in his podcast on Often Partisan, describe the men behind TTA as business men who make their living buying companies that are distressed, bringing them up to speed and selling them. I can understand business men buying and selling companies to make a profit. It is less mysterious than the purchase by Carson Yeung that was described as a riddle wrapped in a mystery. And I agree with Daniel that it’s good to have an expected timeline of what needs to happen. (Timeline starts on page 40 of the BIHL announcement.)

It’s a hopeful time too, for fans of the 24 nations competing in the European Championship. We can all dream before a ball is kicked and some of us have our dreams shattered. Let’s hope that it is only dreams that get damaged and not people, that all who go return home safe and sound.
