You couldn't make it up

It's been a horrific few months for Birmingham City FC. As I posted on a Blues message board a few weeks ago, winning the Carling Cup clearly hacked somebody, somewhere off, because what has happened since beggars belief.

Relegation, our owner being arrested on money laundering charges (his assets have been frozen, crippling us in turn, and it looks like being a long, drawn-out affair), selling players to try and keep the club going (never mind pay off debts). And now, on the eve of our first competitive European fixture since the early 60s, we're told midfield starlet Jordan Mutch has broken his ankle in training.

Rather than wail on about it, I shall simply point you to the final words of my doomsday prophecy regarding Blues: six seconds before the club finally goes out of existence (no doubt an agonising process that will take years to slowly unfold) I fully expect a small, perfectly formed meteorite to strike St Andrews and obliterate it from the face of the earth.
