Time for action
We are all extremely concerned and disappointed after Tuesday’s troubling result, and hope that next Saturday will offer an opportunity to put things right.
However, Blues’ humbling defeat cannot be taken in isolation and must be viewed within the context of our rotten form over the last fourteen months.
Poor decision-making behind the scenes always filters onto the field, and more often than not results in a team falling down the table. Simply changing players and management is rarely enough to stop the decline.
It is entirely obvious to anyone concerned that Birmingham City’s problems relate directly to a failure of Board level management. These problems will persist to the club’s detriment unless the underlying issues are properly addressed.
The last year has been characterised by negligent deficiencies in both recruitment strategy and long-term planning, and the time has come for us as fans to challenge this.
We know that the people on the ground at Blues are committed, dedicated and have been doing an admirable job under difficult circumstances for too long now. They deserve our support.
Over the last six months, Blues Trust has made repeated efforts in various ways to make contact with those currently installed in the Club’s executive. Regrettably this has been to little effect.
In the coming months, Blues Trust will be looking to work with friends and colleagues in order to turn up the volume.
We accept that, of late, the Trust has been fairly quiet, but rest assured that we’ve been working very hard indeed on your behalf to have your voices heard. What we need is as many of those voices as possible to join the call. We need to be big enough not ignore.
Blues’ social media streams tell us that we all feel the same way: frustrated, angry, disappointed at how the club we love is being carelessly run by faceless owners with scant regard for its past, present or future. We must channel those energies into a single focus – putting pressure on the people behind the scenes to deliver answers to the fans and get Blues back on the right road.
The question is not what the Trust can do for you, but what you can do for the Trust. Join us. Get in touch, tell us what skills you have and how you can help. We are working on it – and we want you to work with us.
Keep Right On
