A Stronger Voice
We are now 12 months on from the protests of last January and it would be difficult to argue that things have improved with the ownership and administration of our club. The failed involvement of Maxco proved to be a distraction for several months until quite recently, but here we are again. Remote ownership that inspires no confidence whatsoever and management that too often fails to engage with the supporters of the club.
Blues Trust continues to believe passionately that the situation can be improved, even though we’re pretty sure most supporters are very tired and very weary of the circumstances surrounding our club. But we cannot and we must not throw in the towel.
The Trust’s purpose is to be a representative and influential voice for all supporters of Birmingham City across the club. Men, women, and academy teams.
The Trust is a membership organisation run entirely by volunteers. No one takes anything in return for the time that they give to challenge for improvement. With an unresponsive board and owners, it is a struggle. But some headway is being made and with the implementation of the Fan Led Review now firmly on the horizon, the prospect of a more influential role for supporters is finally expected.
But to be truly effective Blues Trust needs more members. Many more, if its voice is to be properly heard and the views of Blues supporters actually begin to count.
If you are completely fed up with the ongoing situation at St. Andrew’s, and want to try and do something about it, join the Trust. It’s not your membership fee that we need, although that is important to support Trust activity and administration. Your fee also makes you a voting shareholder. No, what we need are more voices, more ideas, and more engagement with committed fans to shape what the Trust does in its efforts to force improvement at the club we all love.
