And furious Birmingham fans gathered outside St Andrews to show their disgust at how they seem to have run the club.

Blue smoke rose in the air of the Midlands, while banners were held against the board.

One large read ‘Wrong management and no trust’, while another read: “Our club has a history of generations.

“Mismanagement is unacceptable, supporters won, won’t tolerate it anymore.

“BSHL It’s time to sell. You’ve put the club to great embarrassment.”

After a five-year stagnation, the patience of Blues supporters has finally run out, with much of St. Andrew’s still dilapidated and closed, while Lee Boyer’s squad continues to fall.

Plymouth’s disappointing exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Argyle has yet to heal and Fulham has sprinkled salt on them as they suffered a 6–2 loss in City’s last outing.

Recently venomous chants have been directed at club owners and the hashtag #BSHLOUT has been fueled by new members railing against the club’s despised parent company Birmingham Sports Holdings Ltd – a faceless entity based in Hong Kong.

He said: “All I want from the fans is to back down from the players as always.

“It can rally them together and make the place louder, which can really help the players in a different way.

“But it’s out of my control and these things sometimes go awry so in a perfect world we’d give them a performance and send them home happy.

“I look up and I feel their frustration because I feel hopeless. I don’t want to fight from the bottom, I want to be thrust at the top end of the table.

“I’ve said before that this is a club in transition and it’s going to take a while.

“Of course I feel their pain, but all I can do is control the football side and make sure the players give them a good reason to continue supporting them by giving them everything.”
