That's the most tinpot thing I've ever seen. I hope Birmingham go bust now.

It's thanks to the £25m that he is bringing in that we won't.

 

Compare Louie Barry, who had been at West Brom for a decade, then refused to sign a pro deal so he could join Barcelona gratis.  And now rocks up at Villa on the cheap.  Basically a con to get around the rules that help the rich to steal all the good players from smaller teams.  Another nail in the coffin of real clubs in favour of the Eurofranchises.

 

It's credit to Bellingham and his family that they basically forwent millions in their skies to do the morally right thing.

This needs to be remembered for any time an English fan calls Scottish Football tinpot

I think you're missing the point. I've no problem with him being sold, it's the retiring of a shirt number after selling a guy that's played 44 games for them.
It's cringe worthy as f**k.

Over the last 30 years or so, we've had Karren Brady modelling a new kit, a ref getting twatted, a diary with the club honours listed as including 7 FA Cups and the European Cup, the Jeff Hall memorial clock havinga Spinal Tap confusion between feet and inches, leisure shirts in the club shop that you could peel the Blues badge off to see the QPR one underneath, a change kit that we never wore because it clashed with our own bloody kit, and have had as successive owners a loan shark, scrap metal dealer, rag traders that even Poundland wouldn't stock, porn barons, a convicted money launderer, and a chap who once reneged on a deal to buy a vase for £57m.  And the club's CEO is called Dong.

 

So this isn't even in the top 100 cringey things we've managed.

Football clubs don't own their players as commodities. If they couldn't offer him a contract that appealed to him then he's free to go elsewhere, which he did.

I had never heard of this Bellingham chap until his move. The Brummies obviously have a wee stauner over him and I don’t quite get it. It’s all a bit bizarre.

He'll be on fifty quid a week and petrol money at Dortmund, I'm sure.

Didn't you hear, Bellingham was only moving from a shite relegation battling second tier team to one of the biggest clubs in Europe as a favour to Birmingham City.  Nothing to do with having the chance to develop with some of the best youth coaches at a club with one of the best reputations in the world for youth development.

Point is he could have moved for buttons, rather than signing a pro deal with Blues first.  Similar situation happening at West Ham with Benicio Baker-Boitey (Triple B?) going to Bayern Munich - only he will cost them £200k rather than £25m because he rejected West Ham's offer.

Not really. There's clubs up here who see players do half dece t in their careers and say "he's one of us" and "made at *enter club*" despite only being at their club for about 18 months and in fact, made debuts elsewhere.

The Blues diary, where they accidentally printed the honours that Villa had won, instead of Blues was my favourite.

Actually had to release a statement confirming that they had never won the European Cup.

Saw a thing saying that Villa are retiring the number 4 shirt, as Danny Drinkwater's loan has expired and he's going back to Chelsea.

As an aside, I do think it was good that he signed a pro-contract, to ensure you got good money for him.

Villa sometimes sing "he's one of our own" about Keinan Davis, who we got from someone like Biggleswade Town and isn't a Brummie. Baffles me.

It is a shit load of money for a 17 year old that has played a half century of games.

Birmingham are well within their rights. Is it overkill? Aye but this transfer could have as big an impact as someone playing 800 games for the club.

I don't see the big deal to be honest.

cf Spurs and Harry Kane - born in Waltham Forest, not Haringey (Borough) and on the books at both Arsenal and Watford before joining Tottenham...
