The International break has come and gone, but the problems that have haunted Alex McLeish's Birmingham side refuse to go away. Three games without a win, and the defence that was hailed as supremely solid has started to look shaky. Off the pitch, the takeover by Carson Yeung has been completed, with a few surprises along the way.

It has been another week of upheaval at St Andrews, and it begs the question, will the arrival of the new owners finally bring the stability that we have called out for?

Another couple of games down the line, and Blues have yet to improve their points tally in the Premier League table. Bolton and Burnley, the two Bs, have brought out C/D grade performances from a side who need to do better if they are to survive.

Just when the fans seemed to be turning on their manager, the Chinese have arrived on their white horses, with mystery, fantasy, and scepticism continuing to reign over St Andrews. The club has changed hands, but where do we go from here?

About
Arun Verma Arun Verma - I'm a student, and a massive Birmingham City fan. Football has played a massive part in my life since I was just a child, and the World Cup in '98 turned me into a footballaholic; my very first love was the beautiful game. My aim for the future is to become a sports journalist and in little over a year, I can say that I feel extremely privileged to have received the opportunities that have come my way. Apart from ESPN Soccernet, I also write for the official Birmingham City Football Club Matchday Magazine, Made in Brum, which is an unofficial Blues magazine, and www.joysandsorrows.co.uk (using the tagname akvbcfc).
