Season ticket

When my season ticket arrived in my letter box today, I realised how little enthusiasm I feel about next season. I always look forward to games and seasons with a mixture of hope and fear, but this season there is a lot more fear than hope.

I don’t know the whole story behind the rumours swirling around Birmingham City FC but it seems that departures from the club are due to a breakdown in relationships.  This could be interpreted in two ways, either Xuandong Ren must be a difficult person to get along with or it’s the people who left who were difficult, people such as Roger Lloyd, Julia Shelton, Gary Moore, Joanne Allsopp, Richard Beale, and Garry Monk.  I know which interpretation seems more likely to me.

I have a dilemma.  I want to support the players on the pitch; they haven’t caused the problems. But I don’t know how to support them without seeming to support the way Xuandong Ren is running the club. I think I will still go to games but may decide not to buy any club merchandise.

Whatever I decide, I’ll try to respect the choices made by other fans.  Togetherness is important in football. I don’t feel any connection to my club’s owners but do want to stay connected to the players and the other fans.

    I am sooo depressed about the season mr REN appears to have no understanding of English culture and to be stuck in a chines culture of no communication treats fans with contempt

    All these above comments are from doom merchants, we will be ok this season by signing players with ambition and by using our great youth system rather go than buy big time charlies like we have done in the past, shame on you all for not showing any faith.

    When GM was sacked I tried to get a refund on my season ticket which the club would not reimburse. Weeks have passed and no signings apart from Gary Gardner. I find myself looking at the car crash that is BCFC like a voyeur driving past bodies that have been flung through a windscreen. The new formations being tried out by Pep look a bit ambitious with our current squad though recent reports of signing a creative passing midfielder in Dan Crowley does fill me with a bit of optimism. I am looking forward to the new season more out of curiosity of what we have planned. Hopefully Pep and Co succeed in changing our style of play otherwise it’s gonna be a long hard season.
