Talk to fans

11 Apr 2017 | 4 comments

Blues Trust were pleased that the Birmingham City Board of Directors put out a statement yesterday rather than another Tweet.  Twitter is not the most appropriate vehicle for communication in a situation where people are upset or angry with you.  And, although Blues fans have continued to get behind the team, they are very unhappy with the run of results.

We would urge the Directors to try to find ways to talk to and listen to ordinary fans. Most people will be a lot politer than they are on social media if you give them an opportunity to talk with you face-to-face. You could start by having a chat with the volunteer Supporter Liaison Officers. On May 16th, you will have the opportunity to meet a group of fans at the Supporters Forum meeting; we look forward to seeing you there.

    Absolutely right. Communication would be a terrific gift to the fans and the club. Please TTA, listen to this advice!!!

    As i see it TTA are setting their stall out as they mean to carry on …They want very entertaining football to attract fans and top sponsership and large kit sales …the football has improved a bit but the slower buildup is making it harder to score …and with the defending not enmasse anymore mistakes have crept into our defence which is losing us matches ..I think talking would help but there is not much to be said except believe in them …until things get better …kro

      Why should we believe that they know what they are doing after they gave a team who were possible promotion candidates a manager who had achieved nothing in that capacity. If, after only 2 wins since December and a catastrophic drop down the table they haven’t sacked the manager, what can we hope for? If Zola starts next season we will be playing catch-up from September onwards. He bought Frei as a winger and hardly plays him. He brought in Keite as a wing-back who cannot defend, but might make a winger. He bought Nsue who cannot decide when to defend and when to attack and cannot cross a ball. It took him ages to see that the young Pole from Arsenal was worth a place in the team; young Cogley, a decent prospect at right back was played as a centre-back instead of him. As for the so-called “striker” from Watford, I don’t need to add any more. Zola can’t choose a player, can’t get us to win,so Blues’ board fire him now and give us some confidence. We want to see winning football.

        Totally agree! Zola has to go. As a player he was a winner, as a coach he’s a loser! Try brain surgery Zola, you might be better at that than managing a football club!
