It's not so long ago that Birmingham were celebrating winning the Gnat's Piss Cup at Wembley and now look at the mess they are in. Relegated on the final day of the season with no financial plan in place to cover the drop because it was not envisaged, McLeish defecting to hated rivals Aston Villa, and now the owner has been charged with money laundering in Hong Kong.
There is a certain irony that a charge of laundering has been levelled against dirty, dirty Birmingham of course whilst their claims that this will not affect the club have to be well wide of the mark. Surely the FA have to consider suspending transfer deals if the club may have been bought with dodgy money? Let's face it, why would anybody in his right mind buy a football club unless he was trying to launder money?
Birmingham thought they were well rid of Sullivan and Gold; it seems it was just a case of out of the frying Pannu and into the fire!
