Surprise surprise

Celtic holding out for big money as Birmingham City try to deal in out of contract striker was the title of an article I read a few days ago. My reaction was that trying to get money out of Birmingham City was like trying to get blood out of a stone and it was most unlikely that Denny Johnstone would end up in our team. Today I read that Blues have agreed compensation and he’s been signed for three years. He’s been given the number 16 squad number but the team page on the official site hadn’t been updated when I last looked and had Koby still listed.

It’s been a good few days. As mentioned in my previous two posts* I had a good time at the Supporters Summit and met some interesting people there. Also, Blues have kept clean sheets in their pre-season friendly games and won 0-4 last night. I’m trying not to get too excited or allow my expectations to be raised too high but even I am starting to feel a little hope for the season ahead.
