BIRMINGHAM DOWN IN THE DUMPS

http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2014/3/3/1393848617977/Carson-Yeung-011.jpg
Today Birmingham City Football Club have been dealt an incisive blow, which many will say is quite unfair.
Due to their Chairman Carson Yeung being convicted for Money Laundering, Birmingham have been dealt considerable convictions from the FA.
The FA website states:Today, due to Carson Yeung's conviction we have been forced into action. We never like to do this, but because of this we have to be harsh to show that we aren't push overs.
Birmingham have had put on them a transfer embargo that will last up until July 2015, they have also been fined £50 Million.
A further FA meeting will be help in a weeks time to decide whether Birmingham will be deducted points and if they will be fined more.

HARSH OR LENIENT PUNISHMENT FOR THE BLUES?

Today the FA have decided that if Birmingham accept to release all their first team players, they will relegated to the League 2 and accept 15 points deducted from this season's start, they won't have to pay the £50 Million fine formerly imposed on them.
This will also incur them giving up their stadium St. Andrews, which will be a bitter blow to the supporters of the club. Until they have enough money to buy a new stadium they will share their ground will Walsall at the Bescot Stadium.
Lee Clark had this to say, 'I think my days at this club are obviously numbered and to be honest I don't want to manage this team any longer, but I know that accepting these conditions will be the best think for this clubs future. I have handed in my resignation to the Birmingham board, and I hope the next manager can bring the club back to where they should be'

LEE CLARK OUT, UNPROVEN COX IN.

Birmingham City chairman Dylan Grainger has told us he has already appoint a manager, and has told the press, 'We are delighted to announce our new manager Cameron Cox, he might be unproven and lack experience but he had is a life long supporter of the blues and can be the catalyst to a recovery,
This has surprised some supporters as they feel a club with the reputation of Birmingham City shouldn't be appointing unproven managers even in their situation, but many of them believe that a supporter of the club taking the helm isn't such a bad think.
In a press conference new manager Cameron Cox told sky sports, 'I am absolutely delighted to be part of this set up, I realise the situation that the club is in and I just want to tell the fans to keep patient, I will make this club the club it's meant to be just give me time'
Good luck with this mate.

Akwasi Asante

In preseason we have had some very poor results, but even so we have had a starlet in Akwasi Asante, he has scored 3 goals against these teams and in most of the games been the stand out performer in fairly below average performing team.

CAMERON'S VIEW

With all the altercations that we have had this season, to have had to great result and the very end of preseason, and a win against Bristol City who are in the league above us is not bad, pretty disappointed with the 4-1 loss to Reims but I did put that down to getting used to the new tactics.

BIRMINGHAM PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Koby Arthur


Well their is only one think to say about this guy at the moment... majestic, he certainly has been that. With 8 goals in 5 games including 2 Hat-tricks and 3 MOTM awards I really can't see why he hasn't been given the League 2 POTM award because he has truly been that great.

LEAGUE 2 PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. Sam Deering- Cheltenham Town
2. Kayode Odejayi- Accrington (on loan from Rotheram)
3. Sam Wood- Wycombe


LEAGUE 2 YOUNG PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. George Bowerman- Accrington Stanley
2. Lawson D'Ath- Dagenham and Redbridge (on loan from Reading)
3. Henry Jones- Newport County- (on loan from Swansea)


CAMERON'S VIEW

Well I can't say it was a brilliant month for us I mean we have picked up some good points, and 2 losses that good have easily gone differently on different days, Portsmouth was one of the losses but I still believe that we are the better team, and I feel Portsmouth now must be favourites for the title, well if they weren't already. 7 points from 5 games makes me feel disappointed but we will be better as the season goes on.

Emmanuel Dieseruvwe(37), Sam Wood(89)- Viv Solomon-Otabor(33)

Akwasi Asante

Last month he was overshadowed by the brilliant Koby Arthur, but this month has been his. He has scored 6 goals from 4 games and has picked up 2 MOTM award. His amazing form as done nothing but impress Birmingham supporters who believe they have the best Strike partnership in the league. Asante also picked up the League 2 POTM award.

LEAGUE 2 PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. Akwasi Asante- Birmingham city
2. Kayode Odejayi- Accrington Stanley (on loan from Rotherham)
3. Robbie Willmott- Newport County


LEAGUE 2 YOUNG PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. Koby Arthur- Birmingham City
2. Brennan Dickenson- Oxford (on loan from Brighton)
3. Perry Cotton- Birmingham City


CAMERON'S VIEW

Well it's been a very interesting month for the club we finally broke into the positive points boundary, which is always a positive and it also puts us 6 points away from getting out of the relegation zones, to know that if we weren't deducted those points we'd be 3rd in the league is always a mixed feeling. 9 points from a possible 12 isn't bad is it. Well done to both Akwasi and Koby for their awards this month.

Koby Arthur

Another magnificent month for Koby, scoring 4 goals and getting one MotM award, he has again been in great form, he was also runner up to the Young Player of the Month award, if he carries on in this way their is no reason why he can't inspire Birmingham to promotion.

LEAGUE 2 PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. Jay O'shea- Chesterfield
2. Craig Sutherland- Torquay
3. Jamar Loza- Chesterfield (on loan from Norwich)


LEAGUE 2 YOUNG PLAYER OF THE MONTH

1. Jamar Loza- Chesterfield (on loan from Norwich)
2. Koby Arthur- Birmingham City
3. George Bowerman- Accrington Stanley


CAMERON'S VIEW

Well I can't say this has been the best month, but it certainly hasn't been the worst, finally out of the relegation zone which is what these lads deserved, but again still knowing that without the points deducted we would be in a comfortable 3rd place, I know we can still get their and their is only 16 points separating us from second place Oxford United. A great win in the second round of the JPT, winning on penalties against Notts County not a bad result, overall I'm pretty pleased with this month and so should the players be.
Your form is improving mate! Keep it up!
