It has been nearly a week since Birmingham City ended their season with a memorable win against Fulham. It was an incredible game, with a full St Andrew’s providing loud support from before kick off to the post-game players parade around the pitch. It was absolutely wonderful and I felt elated.
But I also felt exhausted, worn out by the rollercoaster emotions generated by an end-of-season escape from relegation. I agree with Garry Monk’s comments after the game, “That’s not what you come into football for and it’s not what I’m here for and it’s not what players should be here for, to be fighting relegations. But, the Club has been in that situation too often – three in the last five years.”
Like the players, I need time to rest and relax. I don’t intend to comment on transfer rumours or speculation on the design of next season’s kit. Here are a few pictures before I take a break.
