    Hope that Ramsey will start at last.
    We have a very good record v teams below us in table. My only worry is that we are on the beach and Brum aren't.
    Bluebirds 1-0

    He's usually dreadful, but he was in charge when we won at Preston earlier in the season.

    He’s not the worst for sure, but you’re never sure what you’re going to get with him.

    He seems to have a very individual interpretation of the offside rule.

    Would play Joel Colwill and Ashford instead of Wintle and Robinson. Don't think they will but as there is little to play for from our end, this is the time to play them

    This quote implies that the youngsters could put a result at risk. That can’t be the case surely given the useless individuals they would replace?

    No it implies that the game is meaningless for us so those who haven't had a chance for whatever reason should be given one.

    Birmingham could possibly be relegated, so the clubs around the bottom could complain to the league if we played kids

    Wouldn't happen though so not really anything to be concerned with.

    Re: BIRMINGHAM CITY v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    The ‘kids’ that are being touted for a start are squad members, aren’t they and there are players as young or younger getting game time for other clubs in our division. There’d be no problem whatsoever playing Ashford, J.Colwill etc, in fact Birmingham may complain that they’re ‘unfairly’ better than the deadwood they’ve replaced.

    Several of our youth players have already appeared in a victory over Birmingham this season, including Ashford

    Who knows, they haven't played first team football yet, so we don't know how they will react or perform. I do hope that they're given a decent chance though.

    We are going nowhere, think I’d rather see the predictable loss, Stoke win and Swansea start to squirm…..

    I was just going to post something along the same lines. If I were Joel Colwill or Cian Ashford, I'd be insulted by the suggestion that my inclusion would substantially weaken the City teams that took the field against Millwall, Birmingham, Leicester, Leeds, Plymouth, Norwich, Blackburn, Huddersfield, Swansea, Sunderland etc. etc.

    Birmingham's new stadium getting closer:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/68768084

    Birmingham City have moved a step closer to a new stadium after their owners completed the purchase of land to the east of the city - less than a mile from their St Andrew's home.

    Knighthead Capital Management's deal to buy the 48-acre, former Birmingham Wheels site on Bordesley Park will mean Blues leaving St Andrew's.

    But there is not yet any timescale on when the club will move.

    -

    Talks over the sale have been ongoing for weeks, involving US-based club chairman Tom Wagner, Blues chief executive Garry Cook and the council's lead commissioner Max Caller, with West Midlands Mayor Andy Street acting as a mediator.

    A government grant of about £17m was secured to help clean up the site through the levelling-up fund - and work to clear the site has already started as a result of the funding.

    The city council will inject a further £1.9m as a condition of receiving the money.

    The club say the site will have "a new multi-use stadium, high-performance training facilities and other mixed-use real estate development including a range of entertainment options".

    That's what I thought. It's sod all to do with the football club by the looks of it, just a great big vanity project for someone to leave his 'legacy'..
