It’s the hope that kills you they say. And they are right. If I could stamp out hope and expect the worst before every game of football, I wouldn’t feel so crushed when the worst happens and there would be times when I’d be pleasantly surprised by Birmingham playing quite well.

    Without 2 good quality strikers with goals , workrate and skill (like toney) we will sit mid table or lower. for me if we want to progress we need to be that fruitful with attacking options the juke is used as a bench player. if you want to succeed and do something in the championship you need to improve all around your squad and make it fearful to be dropped

    I agree with Walker, that we need a minimum of two new strikers, that have pace and a poachers finish. As the two young lads we have at the moment (Reid and George) are not quite ready for the Championship just yet.

    Robbo, let’s move away from this negative mentality of ‘running down’ because of the fact Juke scored ‘only 29 goals’ would in-fact mean it would makengood business sense by the club to cash in on a player in his twilight of his career whilst he still commands a good fee, in order to invest for the future.

    The club is moving in a new direction, nows not the time to being held back sentimental feelings.

    6 players in, possibly a couple more on the horizon, have we actually spent any money yet. The new manager was told funds were available but he doesn’t appear to have dipped into them yet. Is there going to be a huge striker signing ?

    Yes we need a striker or two and must retain the clubs player of the season. Whatever system Karanka wants to play juke can provide an alternative game strategy when impact is needed. We also need an experienced centre back .
