I'm one of those that need to get a grip I'm afraid.

I'd much rather we blooded one of our own babbies, that's me and how I see it.

There was a time when we signed good players from them, I loved Des Bremner for instance, this bloke is just another journeyman like his BrotherIMHO.

I agree with you, Sweep, I’d rather we bring on one of our own U23 players, but we need the time and flexibility to do that. If one of our U23s shows enough form, then GM will give them their chance, He’s shown evidence of that.

In the meantime, GG is a player who has the capability to make a real impact, if he can get anywhere near the potential he showed a few years ago, before his bad knee injury.

Yeah, bring the kids on (I'm excited to see this Lakin make an impact) but it will help to have options to reduce the mental and physical pressure that would go with us completely and utterly depending on them. I'm perfectly happy with this signing; even more so, given where we are (lest we forget).

Wise words, DB.
I love to watch our own young players develop. I’ve been able to do that at BCLFC but not so much at BCFC. Until now. I think GM is on the same page as us, and is going out of his way to give opportunities to our younger players.

Yep agreed, it'd be great if Lakin plays next game and is that good, GG never gets a sniff at the club.
Meanwhile, if that miracle doesn't occur, we've got a fairly experienced cm who seems desperate to resurrect his career.
It's all about us.

Good luck to him. Interesting see 2 brother playing together side by side for us. Saw Dave and Bob Latchford play for us together, but first time I have seen 2 brothers as outfield players for Blues
What about the Francis twins, Kevin and Trevor ?

The same Gary Gardner who took the rise at the Tilton when Barnsley beat us "certain hand movement " to the crowd poor player what joke !
Would the certain hand movement be in response to getting abuse? Can we not take it as well as give it then? He's a player that adds to the squad which is paper thin. It's very easy for us to say 'give our kids a chance' and Monk will - if they're good enough. But the kids and Monk will bear the brunt of it if they're not up to scratch, not internet posters who say 'give the kids a chance' without bearing any of the responsibility if it goes wrong. It's the judgement of the bloke that sees them every day that we need an experienced reinforcement, under embargo restrictions.

If that's a bloke that supports the Villa and is happy to come and play for us, fine.

Seen some embarrassing shit on here and Twitter about this. He’s a Blues player now. Get behind him ffs
Sonic Youth fan. MBV. If you like feedback that much get a job at the council.
I seem to remember David Davis getting some low boos when his name was read out on the team sheet for his debut.

I'm sure Gardner will be a professional and put the effort in.

This signing gives us 4 fit senior centre mids plus room for a young player. This does not freeze out Lakin but rather provides the chance for him to be dipped in and out of the squad as well as giving us the opportunity to play 3 cm if monk ever wants to mix things up.

Obviously I know a lot of it is geared to try and brown nose BUT

Gary has posted on Instagram a pic in full blues gear saying how buzzin he is cant wait and Keep Right On 🔵

He has replaced his 'footballer for aston villa' to 'on loan at Birmingham city everything happens for a reason'

Looking through the comments villa fans are screwing looks as if he has burnt his bridges there.

Now I know there has been a lot said about who they support but is it possible they are just a footballing family and follow their careers rather than a club..

I think I read his goal against us was his first for the scum so cant blame him for over celebrating really.

Should we give him a chance???
10:15, Fri 10 Aug
Ill be backing him while he wears the shirt.
10:18, Fri 10 Aug
Like every player, I will judge him solely on his performances on the pitch. That post was so try hard, it’s not worth acknowledging.

It’s not because of his Vile connection but he’s a very limited / uninspiring footballer - if he changes my opinion on the pitch, great.
10:25, Fri 10 Aug
He has won me over from his post on Instagram and how frothing it has got Villa fans.

Tatts hinted on Twitter that he is a Blues fan and had to hide his allegiance so who knows what to believe.

Must admit its made me warm to him,

He knows the shit hes going to get and seemingly giving them the middle finger.

I know a few lads that know Gary well so I should have more of an insight after speaking with them weekend

Should fit in well with our current central midfielders 😁

He feckin hid it well, when he scored against us.

Barring giving Beau Brummie a kick in his dog’s bollocks, during his 100M sprint to the Villa fans, I don’t know how he could of hid his allegiance any better.

He’s got a better feckin career in acting, if it later transpires that he’s a Blues fan.





He’s a Villa fan playing for Blues, i’ve No problem with that. We’ve lauded sex pests in the past, so we might as well support a Villa fan, too.

You were no doubt sat on your hands refusing to celebrate when his DVB brother scored that equaliser at Spurs under Eck, yeah?

Did Craig score against Blues and run the length of the pitch to celebrate?

Did Craig post frequent social media entries mocking Blues?

Did Craig taunt Blues fans while playing for other clubs as Gary did with Barnsley?

No. He's not getting my support, he can do one back across the expressway.
