Euell saga finally over

It seems that Birmingham City's interest in Jason Euell is finally at an end, concluding an on-off saga that has dragged on for some weeks. Steve Bruce is apparently going to concentrate on strengthening his defence. If we're stuck with Euell, we might try using him as a sub. No sign of JJ, Lisbie or Jeffers going anywhere either.

Meanwhile, The Valley is buzzing with news of the home draw in the FA Cup against Brentford. Surely we must get through to the quarter finals?

The Bees have recently been taken over by a supporters' trust and their non-executive chairman is Greg Dyke of 'Roland Rat' fame and the man Michael Grade succeeded at the BBC.

It is not often that I feel sorry for an over paid exponent of the art of kicking a ball, but one does have to feel sorry for Euell, it was not that long ago that the North Stand were singing his name and now he has become a forgotten man (unlike Deano who claimed thios weekend in the Independent to be the forgotten man, his time in the stiffs was not long enough for memory erasure). Poor old Euelly who had little chance to play himself into form last season with a continual string of 5 and 10 minute off the bench cameo performances, was chased by Birmingham before he popped his shoulder and then again after recovery, only for a last minute change of heart, to leave Euell with less than 48 hours for new suitors to be found and seduced. There is no room for him on the bench, with Bothroyd taking his forward role and plenty of midfield talent, especially Curbs's latest favourite in Hughes, so for our former favourite it is back to the stiffs and a hoped for move in the summer - shame.
