West Ham & Birmingham Takeover Puzzle
Quite apart from the fact that it has all gone quiet over there, there being the Board or Andrew Bernhart or Scotty Duxbury, the big puzzle for me is why Carson Yeung opted to buy out Birmingham instead of coming in for ourselves?
I mean, the last guy to say that he thought Birmingham was a bigger club with better prospects than West Ham was Alan Turds Curbishley when he walked out on us as a player. Since then, Birmingham have won precisely nothing and have spent longer in the second tier of English football than they have at the top table. I know we haven't exactly covered ourselves in glory in the intervening thirty plus years, but we have won an FA Cup, reached another FA Cup Final and a League Cup final, produced a host of England players and played in Europe. We have a better stadium than Birmingham and we are based in the Capital city and the host city for the 2012 Olympics.
So why would you buy Birmingham when you could have West Ham?
