Davis has evidently left, the club announcement says it all,    " This continued dedication was duly rewarded following the 2016/17 campaign, with Davis deservedly recognised at the Club’s end of season awards. Named Players’ Player and Supporters’ Player of the season, he also went home with the Moment of the Season crown for his crucial goal against Aston Villa"  For that goal he will have the shirt retired and be immediately enrolled into the "legends" club

Was the goal "crucial" because it won them a trophy? Because it guaranteed them promotion, or kept them up? No, it was "crucial" because it salvaged a draw. At home. To another club in the same division.

If you take the 4 extra points his goals that season "won", he did keep them up.

Don’t forget the other legend Stephen Carr.  Because of his wonderful, technical ability that unlocked our defence time and again?  No because he did a wanker sign to us at the end.  The 2010 completely soft penalty award which was fantastic.

Didn't Carr lift the League Cup?

I never saw a banner with that on but I did se one of him doing that sign to us in the North Stand.

Our new signings are told to impress the fans with good play and good effort. Theirs are told to impress the fans with a dig at the Villa.

The crying over that was beautiful, made it almost as good as the 5-1.

The latest news is that apparently Karanka has drawn up a bomb squad list of players surplus to requirements.

He'd be better off saving time by just using the regular squad list. Even by their standards, it's a pretty rubbish squad.

Loved it when they go battered the other week, and he not only refused to go and speak to the squad, but also told the post match interviewer about it as well.

Didn't see that. That's brilliant!

If he's still there by the end of the season, I'd be amazed.


I reckon he would have to walk for him not to be in charge until the end of the season. They probably can't afford to sack him and pay up his contract.

Compare this entrance at their training ground (or should that be B'ham University ) to the entrance at Bodymoor Heath  Small Heath second rate in everything to Villa

is this actually true ?  retired another shirt ?? a legend because he scored aaginst the Vile ???

The only reason  they are retiring shirts is because next season they will only be able to afford to fill about fifteen shirts.

The owners can't be that short of cash can they?

Quote from: Local Rag
Taxi driver robbed at gunpoint in shocking attack near Blues ground.

The driver was on St Andrews Road, Bordesley, when four Asian men in balaclavas pointed a gun at him and ordered to hand over his money in a shocking early morning attack.

Police have launched an investigation after a taxi driver was held up by a gang at gunpoint by the Blues Ground. The men, who had called for the taxi, took around £60 from their victim before fleeing.

To be fair the closer the crime to St Blandrews is the less chance its one of the great unwashed.

More than lkkely local crack heads who worryingly have got hold of a gun. I hope they blow thier own bollocks off.

Does the Mail feel the need to highlight the ethnicity of white people who commit crimes just below the headline?

I would think in a case like this they would. Like it or not it's a obviously a key physical characteristic of the criminals.

Mention it in the article. It doesn't need to be next to the headline and they wouldn't do it if it was white people. Unless someone  can find me an article where they have?

I'd have thought descriptions of the balaclavas would be more useful.
