Saw that story last night absolutely disgrace. Why do the clubs have the end of season parties the week before they finish though?

Even more of a disgrace when one of the alledged players was Ben Foster who had a few days earlier said he wanted to quit England so he could 'look after himself'.

And I assume they have them the week before so that the manager and players can go strait away on holiday after their final game and maximise their holiday time. But it would only be one extra day I guess.

After they beat Sunderland, I thought they would have been safe.

I doubt the chances of that Colin Doyle featuring would of been low anyway. Foster earns them plenty of points but then has a rush of blood. Wolves at home, Fulham at home. Their injury list is rather cruel to them with McLeish running out of options. They'd look a decent bet for relegation providing Blackpool and Wigan can take points.

It is a week before their game. Would this really effect performance?

Not so much about affecting performance, more about being professional. They have the biggest game of their season next week and didn't really do themselves any favours with their performance against Fulham on saturday.

Obviously I'm not saying players aren't allowed to go out, have a good time etc but to do it two days after a bad defeat and in the week before your biggest game doesn't give out the best signals.

Only one point from there last six games, Fulham and Wolves at home were the two games for them where they needed to win.

Saturday-Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday!

Wonder if they'll sack McGleish? Like has been said,this could ruin them financially as I think we'll start to see that Yeung is a dodgy dealer.

Roger Johnson for the Albion?

I dont think they will sack him in the summer, if they dont have a good start then they may do.

The loan sigings of Davies, Bentley, and Martins proved to be awful signings.

Would love Johnson/Dann/Gardner at the Albion.
I imagine the first 2 would be a bit pricey. Odd that they went down, still at least their boring football is gone.

I know they have been passed for Europe for next season but surely the finances would now be revisited with relegation confirmed

Birmingham City take up their rightful position...below us! get in. I'm going to enjoy watching them go into financial meltdown.

Yeah, we should try moves for Johnson and Dann, snap up the cheaper of the two.

There is a quote floating round that relegation WAS NOT budgeted for, there are no flex downs in place and contracts with up to three years left on full whack.

They are in huge trouble.

That would sum up the whole attitude of complacency and misplaced self-importance which revolves around that club.

When did we start hating Blues so much? Personally I'm not sad to see them go but won't be throwing any parties either. Although the smug bellendery from Villa fans on facebook is making me wish they stopped up.

Wouldn't mind poaching a couple of their players. Definetly wouldn't mind Johnson or Dann.

Curtis Davies was apparently their man of the match today. Sad to see them go in honesty, wish it was Wolves but after seeing them the twice they've placed us they have been quite dreadful.

It is only me and a few others who hate them, perhaps it is my location (Quinton) and the amount of Small Heath fans I know, but yeah, I'm happy to see them go down.
