Time for a break

Posted on 8 Oct 2015

The international break comes at a good time for Birmingham City. The team had played seven games in 21 days and Gary Rowett has said that players will get some recovery time during the break. And we finished the first quarter of the season on a high, winning the last two games and going up to fourth place.

There are a lot of positives about our club at present. The manager and playing staff have built a successful team without spending much. Gary Rowett is intelligent, articulate and prepared to answer fans’ questions on live radio. (Click here to listen if you missed the Football Phone-in on Radio WM)

Protest against high ticket prices

Posted on 2 Oct 2015

Is £37 too much to pay to watch a football game? That’s what Leeds are charging Birmingham City supporters for tickets to the game on Saturday, £5 more than they charge their own fans for a standard ticket. The72 website published a comparison of the cost of being a Championship awayday traveller for the first game of this season. Sheffield Wednesday charged the most, £39, and Leeds’ tickets were the second most expensive. The Guardian survey of Championship ticket prices reveals that Sheffield Wednesday charges £52 for some games. Birmingham City’s were the cheapest at £20 and their average matchday ticket price is well below the League average.

Statement on forum comments

Posted on 10 Aug 2015

Blues Collective has asked Blues Trust to dissociate itself from comments made by one of its members on on-line forums. I have looked at the thread ‘Blues Collective vs Blues Trust’ on the Small Heath Alliance Forum and can confirm that the views expressed there are the personal opinions of the member concerned and not the official view of Blues Trust. The Trust wishes to dissociate itself from those views. We use our own website and social media accounts to make our views known; we do not post them on forums.

Blues Trust does not want to be involved in disputes with Blues Collective or any other Birmingham City supporters groups. We are willing to talk to any group and co-operate when our interests overlap. As we have said in our mission statement, we aim to work with other supporters’ groups, not in competition with them – we recognise all groups have their own different purposes and roles.

Margaret Decker
Chair of Blues Trust
