A few points from anyone who can't / hasn't watched the post match press conference.

- Wants/expects 1 or 2 more players in by end of windows

- Fry/Roberts more precautionary, hopefully not out too long

- Fletcher has really stepped up the last couple months, works hard in training

- Coulson is sick; has been since Fulham and is on antibiotics

- Thinks had Roberts stayed on the pitch we'd have won the game. Says he shouldn't put too much pressure on Roberts but sometimes can't help it because he's just that good.

- Thinks the reds were a little harsh, just a fracas, they'll all make up and have a beer afterwards.

- Was running down the line at the linesman yelling it's a head injury - points out they were offside for the actual goal anyway, so it would have been flagged off.

Thanks @Brunners. Just listened to it and just to add to your points.

- asked about Gibson and said lets wait and see. It seems clear we want him.

- asked if the 2 signings he expects are both defenders he said lets wait and see.

- said fry not for sale unless someone offering £30m

- britt back for blackburn. Shots and Friends to play in 2 reserves game. I elieve there are 2 games on Sun 2nd Feb and Fr 7th Feb.

- was confident about fry and roberts. These 11 days should do both them world of good in terms of rexovery.

Us bringing Tav back on doesn't change the course of events, mate. I don't think it was the right decision either but what actually happened has very little to do with our decision to bring him back on when we're talking about people calling it a knee injury vs. what it actually was.

I'm sure if we had a sub available, we'd have taken him off but clearly in the heat of the moment, he felt okay, we wanted to be at 11 players and so he went back on. On another day, it could have gone completely wrong and no, we shouldn't have done it. But I think that's a separate thing.

I wasn't at the game so I can only go by what I heard on Tees, they said Tav was 'out' after a head collision. 

If that's the case then the heat of the moment shouldn't have anything to do with the physios decision, neither should our lack of available subs. A physio has to make a decision based on the players health and after a head injury the situation of the game shouldn't be a factor.

30 million pound public pricetag is about as firm as it gets as a stance from Woody on Fry and it's nice to hear him be that firm and bold on it to be honest big show of faith in Fry at the same time to set a Championship record price on his head publicly.

Again, not disagreeing. More pointing out that you seem to be countering the point of Brum fans complaining about the head injury with our physios shouldn't be sending him back on. He was out, completely out, 3 or 4 Boro players and Lee Camp were all screaming for the game to stop and for physios to come on and the ref and his assistants completely ignored it, so much so that the physios ran on anyway.

I'm glad we don't have a game this weekend as we are absolutely desperate for a break.  Not a great game but we looked knackered and the injuries just added to it.

Haha, the linesman had actually flagged offside? Or was going to? If true, that's great. All this faff on and the goal wasn't even gonna get given anyway.

Aye, we looked so void of energy. Could have really done with McNair putting that penalty away, like, might have been able to handle the game much better if we were the ones controlling the tempo.

The Birmingham fans see our players and bench going hysterical because we wanted the game stopped. The goal gets disallowed then they see Tav running round a few minutes later. In their biased opinion they probably think he's feigning injury and we've robbed them off 2 points. 

To be honest if the roles were reversed I think our fans would be reacting the same.

Pleased that Wood managed to aquit himself well when he came on. People forget just how young he is, ESPECIALLY for a centre back.

They also think the league has a vendetta against them because of the referee's display tonight.

I've just watched the Tav incident on replay, I'm absolutely baffled that the ref didn't deem that a foul.

Even if he hadn't been knocked out by the second Birmingham player's elbow, he was completely wiped out by the first.

Pathetic.

Yeah, he looked a bit shook coming on in the first half but second half, he had a few really good moments for a very young lad.

I don't know if he had actually flagged, or if Woodgate was just sounding confident in his posturing, but he seemed pretty convinced it was going to be disallowed regardless.

I'm sure not every Birmingham fan is that thick just like every Boro isn't completely stupid either.

    • Yes, but Red Bull are are selling to end users. One way or another they will spend a lot of money to advertise to consumers. Therefore they can spend a lot of the marketing budget in promoting the club as long as they can show they might have to¬†spend ¬†a similar amount if they were¬†¬†sponsoring another football club. Equally if they can show another similar company to them would spend that kind of money on football sponsorship, then they would be OK. Bulkhaul are selling to other companies and probably don‚Äôt need to advertise their services very much, so cannot justify a large spend on the front of football shirts - it wouldn‚Äôt be economic for that type of company to advertise to consumers. None of the big football sponsors are companies that don‚Äôt sell to consumers either directly or via retailers.
    • Don‚Äôt think it has changed. A club is allowed to ‚Äúlose‚ÄĚ ¬£5m per year and on top of that, if the owner injects funds they can lose whatever he injects, up to another ¬£8m. Therefore if¬†the owner injects the maximum of ¬£8m in cash, the club can lose ¬£13m. As the assessment is over 3 year rolling period, the total losses have to be less than¬†¬£39m over the three seasons. If you break even for two years in a row, then you could lose ¬£39m in next year and still be OK. Remember however that the ¬£39m loss ¬†would then be included as part of¬†the total calculation¬†for the two subsequent seasons, so you would have to break even for those as well. All ¬†those figures ignore the cost of operating your academy ¬†and one or two other small items, but include both ¬†income from ¬†and expenditure on¬†transfer fees as associated costs such as agent fees¬†etc.
    • You can sponsor your club from your own company but you have to make it a fair amount.¬† If they believe that you're overpaying then that's when¬†they will have issues.¬† From Gibson's point of view, as he's already funding the club then it probably seems pointless having Bulkhaul as a sponsor as well.
    • Very little,¬†but the stats do and they are pretty damming.¬†
    • Loose against Barnsley and Woody should fall on his sword, or someone should help him do so. It‚Äôs atrocious to think under his reins he¬†has lowed expectations to a point we have little confidence of beating teams scrapping the bottom. I have listened and read what Woody had to say about lost and drawn games,¬†and more intently to try and¬†understand his vision,¬†and conclude,¬†I honestly don‚Äôt believe Woody realizes how poor he¬†is,¬†so how the @@@@ can he learn anything.¬†
