The Headlines Look Gloomy For Brum

If the press are right Birmingham City may face more worries on the back of relegation from the Premier League.

A sample of recent headlines makes worrying reading for Blues fans.

The Sun;Birmingham City were plunged into crisis after owner Carson Yeung was arrested.
The club's future has been left hanging in the balance with Yeung last night charged with five counts of money laundering involving £59million.

But club acting chairman Peter Pannu insisted the matter has nothing to do with the club's operation. Pannu told the media earlier in the week; "I have just had a call from the Birmingham International Holdings lawyers in Hong Kong.

"I have been informed by them that Carson is assisting with inquiries that have nothing to do with the operation of BIHL in Hong Kong and therefore nothing to do with the operation of the club."

But Birmingham legend Kenny Burns, 57, admitted he fears for his former team.

Burns, who made 170 appearances for Birmingham, said: "You have to wonder what's going to happen.

"I've been surprised by a lot of things coming out of the club recently, especially Alex McLeish leaving.

"Are we going to find ourselves in the position where the club is put up for sale? And how much longer can the club go on if the investment stops coming in?

"It's a worrying time for everyone connected with the club.
