Before I write anything else about possible new owners for Birmingham City FC I want to make it clear that these ramblings are just hypothetical. I can’t reveal any inside information on who might want to buy the club. I haven’t spoken to anyone at the club or to anyone in Hong Kong or to Colin Tattum or to Tom Ross or to the next door neighbour of the cousin of the man who cuts the grass at Wast Hills Training Ground. If you are looking for the latest scoop, you’re looking in the wrong place.
The impression I get from browsing the fan forums is that most want new owner(s) but that there is less agreement about what kind of owner they want. Some seem to hanker after a white knight, who will gallop up and invest enough money to get us back into the Premier League. Others could do without promotion if the new owner brought stability and prudent financial management.
How would you feel if the following two potential owners were trying to buy the club?
|Mr Moneybags||A super rich investor with no previous connection with the club but with plans to invest enough to get us back into the Premier League.|
|Mr Fan||A rich business man who has been a life-long Blues supporter. He doesn't have enough money to get Blues back into the Premier League but plans to run the club in a financially sustainable way.|
