Tilton Talk has partnered with the Blues Trust to prepare an open letter to the owners of Birmingham City PLC and the Exec. We are simply asking for clarity on points around the running of the club, the stadium and what is planned for the future. There is also one other point, we are asking for the removal of our current CEO and that the replacement has an understanding of how to run a football club.
To have you voice heard please read the details below and then complete the petition information. The more signatures the louder your voice so if you have 5 season ticket holders or people who watch the games then we need all 5 to sign. So come on lets #getyourvoiceheard !

An open letter to the owners and exec of Birmingham City PLC
The fans of Birmingham City FC are annoyed and tired with the continuing poor standards of executive management at our beloved club. We are generally a group that accepts and forgives mistakes so long as lessons are learnt. But ten years of decline provides the evidence to show that the executive management is severely lacking in its ability to run a football club or even learn to run a football club. This makes us question the motives of the executive and to conclude that achieving the best for Birmingham City FC is not top of their priority list and that they have some other underlying objective.
This is the shocking list of decline
|From This||To Now|
|Promotion chasing Mens Team||Relegation fighters, as a result of poor decision making and detrimental interference on football matters by the executive that has wasted money, brought instability and lack of unity within the club|
|One of the top Women’s Teams in the country||Relegation Fighters, following interference in structure and managerial appointments by executive with an exodus of good staff and players|
|Academy producing top players||Doubt and uncertain future following executive announcements and exodus of good staff|
|Top administrative management team||People with little expertise unable to fill the massive gaps left by exodus of good staff following disputes with executive|
|Close relationship with fans||Lack of basic communication with fans with a lack of transparency in plans, decision making, financial stability and future of the club.|
|Debt free club with sustainable business plan||Massive debts, uncertain business plan with opportunities lost and investment wasted. Unclear financial arrangements, use of money from untraceable sources and breach of EFL financial rules.|
|Maintained ground with safety certificate in the ownership of Birmingham City FC||Unsafe ground with confusion over repairs programme and uncertainty as to who owns it with at least 2 companies having partial ownership (both operating in secretive off shore regimes.|
|Hope of improvement under new owners||Realisation that owners are destroying our club, the identity of ownership is unclear / unknown and involves an extremely complex structure of companies, and individuals with intertwined loans, debts and equity dealings.|
We fans will always support the teams and the managers. We are all over the moon about the recent results achieved by Lee Bowyer and the team. But the fans cannot support the continuing incompetence at Owner and Executive level. Support for the Executive and Owners has been lost and the rot has to be stopped.
By signing this petition, we call for the Owners (whoever they are) and Executive team to acknowledge the errors made as a result of poor executive management, and to appoint and empower a competent CEO with experience of running a football club, who understands Blues and will be able to support Lee Bowyer and Carla Ward and the players.

Lets hope we at least get a response…..
If the “voice” is loud enough would the board ignore us?
We hope not Len for us the louder the better
Hopefully this will have a bigger impact than the plane!!
Let’s hope this they take notice… Fingers crossed we have a ground to go to next season so they can hear our voices…
Let’s hope they listen and we get a response
Come on everyone 💪🏼 We can’t let our Club be ruined 😡
Let’s have our Football club back. KRO
Dong ain’t worried as the kop and Tilton won’t be repaired by the time the new season starts so he still won’t appreciate the depth of anger about how the club is run until he has 20,000 fans telling him. Even then he’ll just surround himself with the bully boy K2 security with orders to eject anyone voicing discontent.
It’s time that when these people buy football teams they know they are buying a football club not a business
KRO this is our beloved club that they are ruining, they need to go
Why don’t the Chinese board at least listen to it’s supporters, because it’s us who support this club by going to games putting money into the club to keep this club going, if it was not for supporters there would be no Birmingham city, we are the most important part of this club, please please please, Birmingham city board at least listen to your supporters, we are the backbone of this club, we will always support Birmingham city F.C. so please listen to us….
The Chinese government have stopped all money leaving China for any clubs owned by Chinese people in Europe. They’ve also ordered them all to return and reinvest in Chinese sport by 2024/25.Lets hope it’s true
I agree with everything that as been said, regarding our Football Club, if they continue the way they have been, for another Season, then I do not think, that we will have 5000 supporters left in 12 months time – we have had enough. I am 90 years old, born in Tilton Road in 1930 and I have supported Blues since 1936.
I agree with everything that my husband as already said. I am 89 years old, and I have been a Season Ticket Holder since we were married in 1953. Please listen to the fans
