Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe


Recommended Posts

Birmingham City

Jaspal Thaliwal has been the manager of Birmingham City for three seasons now and has completely changed the squad. " I started with a championship side which looked like they were sure for relgation but now i have transformed them to a solid Premier league team which looks for top eight every season".

Jaspal Thaliwal relies on his young squad to break into the top 4 but most people say this is impossible which such a young side with an average team age off 21/22. This hasn't stopped the succes of the club.

One of the greatest aspects of him is his transfer deals which has seen such stars as Darren fletcher , Darren Bent , Ola Toivonen and Laurent Koscienly join. Not to mention such young stars such as Javier Hernandez , Sergio Canales , Corchia , Douglas Costa and Philippe Coutinho.

Birmingham are looking to break into the top four one day and segment themselves as one of the great build ups.

Eden hazard secures move to Birmingham FC

Eden-Hazard-Delivers-Transfer-Hammer-Blow.jpg

After all this speculation Hazard has finally moved to the midlands club. The player dubbed " The new Messi " has impressed the club with his club and country performances. Star striker Darren Bent was used as a p/e for the player , " Bent is a great player but his lack of goals and dodgy performances has lead me to pass him on. With Hazard in the starting 11 i shall push up Hernandez"

Birmingham are currently sitting at 11th in the table , only 2 points of the top 8 were we would expect them to be. " I'm not worried for our recent dip in form , we will push out of this a claim what is ours"

5 on the trot

Birmingham-City-256x256%20copy.gif

Birmingham have finally gone into the form for which we know them for , five wins in a row even though two of which were friendly games. Recently Blackburn have fallen to Birmingham at St Andrews in a close game which saw the home team win with a in form Ola Toivonen scoring a belter.

Yesterday's game betweem Birmingham and Liverpool brang a huge shock on the english game , Liverpool who were the bookys favourite and why wouldn't they be with a top 4 finish every season and with players like Messi and Gerrard. Liverpool came into the game without a defeat in the league in five games but feel short to an amazing display but the midlands side who went on to win the game 4-2. Goals from Hazard , Tabanou , Koscienly and man of the match Javier Hernandez.

Douglas Costa breaks into the first team

128658_hp.jpg

The Brazilian has made quite the name for himself in recent weeks and his progress hasn't been unnoticed by the gaffer. Birmingham had talent winger Downing working the flanks not to long ago but when he was sold to Rangers the public were amazed. A top winger is hard to come by but the deal left Birmingham without a winger for the season as unknown players Douglas Costa and Danny Wilson came to the squad. From joining last season Costa played 25 games which seems reasonable but 19 of them were from the bench.

Since then he has attracted interest from both top spanish clubs Real madrid and Barc. " I want to give the boy a chance and see what he can do in the big time. Our next game is stoke city at home so i except a performance from the boy".

In other news Birmingham carried on their streak to make it six wins in a row with a impressive win against Bolton at the Reebok. Goals coming from Hernandez , Tabanou , De Silvestri and Koscienly.

Birmingham 4 - 0 Stoke

Douglas Costa dosen't disappoint

As soon as Douglas breaks into the first team he scores two goals which has cemented his place in the starting Xl. Pulling of a man of the match performance with one goal of pure individual skill and a beautifully played team goal. Birmingham move up to 7th with only 3 points off the top four spot with the club's chairman whats to achieve within a few seasons.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Birmingham have change of mindset

In all the time Jaspal Thaliwal has been the manager for Birmingham he has had a strong youth policy which many managers likened him to Arseme Wenger but recently he has scrapped his core values into the trash and is joining for the top. Over 35 young players have been sold off for funds which Jaspal had to reply "The wages for the club were at an all time high. I needed to get rid of the players which less promise and stick to the few which could have futures"

Birmingham have recently signed up -

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

James Mccarthy joins Birmingham for 6m

b6118241-b656-4b0e-8061-9885d6b915b6.634401259982362990.jpg

The talented Irish man has just joined Birmingham City for a cut price of 6 million pounds. James expressed his disire to play in the top flight and with Wigan's current situation in the 2nd division and not looking to be going up anytime soon he has jumped ships to an up and coming side. The so called yoyo club has stayed in the top flight for four seasons on the trot and with this stability James choose to come to the midlands club. Birmingham has for 3 seasons running qualified for europe and this season a push for the smfa cup rather than the shield might be likely. James has a lot of promise but will have competition from other players for a place to play in the starting 11 of Birmingham even with the 40 players leaving the squad there is still fierce competition

Brazilian prospect joins Birmingham

Lucas%252C+jpeg.jpg

Birmingham have just completed the signing of 18 year old brazilian playmaker Rodrigues Lucas for 6 million pounds from italian side Bologna.

The midlands side had to beat off interest from Real Madrid and Milan to confirm the boys signature.

Lucas has been likened to Kaka and with brazil caps at the age of 18 he looks really promising.

Birmingham have said they are willing to loan the player out or either let him devolp with other first team players but will not get a chance to debut until he proves himself to the manager and adapts to the english game.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

New era at the Midlands

Birmingham have shocked the world by putting up some of the biggest football talents today on the transfer list for just money deals. Teams from all over tried to gain the services of the youth stars and only a few bids were good enough to tempt experienced manager Jaspal Thaliwal from lettng them go.

Football_-_Premier__342825t.jpg

Tom Cleverley was one of the few who left.

What people failed to realise was that on the other side of selling players there are buying players and that was just what happened. Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho joined up for £21,000,000 which is one of the most cash friendly deals done in the league. Lombaerts a highly rated belgium defender who plays for Zenit moved from russia to succed in England by securing a move to Birmingham and both clubs agreed on a £8,750,000 fee on the player who can play at center back and left back. Thaliwal wasn't done there and snapped up German international Badstuber for Contento and promising defender Dann plus 10 million.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Dramatic turn around at Birmingham

With recent newspapers and fans criticising the young Birmingham manager Jaspal Thaliwal about the lack of attacking options he answered them with youth star Rodrigo Alborno who impressed at previous club with making starting apparences at the age of 17. Even though he is a winger Thaliwal shows he is prepared to splash a little cash here and there.

Rodrigo-Alborno-Ortega.jpg

With all the fans still angry at the city manager about lack of fowards with talented riviere leaving for cash and no real permanent replacement.

All the world is stunned when Jaspal announces that solid defnder Samba has been sold to Bolton for 13 million. What everyone didn't know was the secret transfer which was happening in France.

Divison two side PSG who have recently faced cash flow problems made a deal with Birmingham to buy big name Turkish international foward Erding. Seems Jaspal had a plan all along and has brang in a name foward who fans can be proud of.

Now he will be playing behind Sow and Hernandez but with him signed barc loan player will be sent back.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Jaspal Thaliwal offered amazing chance in France

The very succesful Birmingham city manager has been offered a dream job at AS Monaco where the chairmen offered Thaliwal unlimited funds to gain players. We all know the finical problems at Birmingham and with this offer on the table it is very hard to reject.

Earlier today Thaliwal made a personal statement infront of Sky sports broadcast team , " I have been offered a chance to go to France with an amazing offer on the table but why should i accept when i have already rejected clubs from Germany , Turkey , Spain and England. It wasn't too long ago since i was offered the Aston Villa and Arsenal job yet i still truned them down to stay at Birmingham."

Following those statements Thaliwal expressed his transfer ideas and suggested highly rated Montoilvo has been transfer listed to make way for some deoth into the squad.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

What a transformation

In recent weeks at the midlands there has been nothing to report , Birmingham have been on such a slump that fans aren't even turning up to matchs. Something had to be done , Thaliwal put his foot down with the board and entered the transfer market for new players when the chairmen had said no on so many occasions. Everyone was shocked about the defense at Birmingham so guess what , Jaspal got himself a defender.

1169094408-20062010090653.jpg

None other than Denmark international Simon Kjaer , what a player to sign. A promising young player and solid at the back. Big price for the lad though , Canales plus 5 million. Thaliwal rates Canales highly yet the temptation of such a great defender was to much.

But was that enough ???

Two young attacking players Doumbia and Gaitan and Erding both respectively have joined the ranks of the Birmingham attack. Thaliwal made it clear that a starting position was there for anyone , you had to work hard for it. Both players look be in rotation but with a few good performances they could break through.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

What a transformation part 2

When Thaliwal says its not over trust him when he says its not over. With all these players coming in Thaliwal makes a suprise move and sells two of the biggest names in the Birmingham squad. Darren Fletcher and Ricardo Montilvo have both departed in suprise moves but when you think about the other side of the deal you understand why they were sold. Brazilian International Lucas , England superstar Cahill , Spainish goal machine Negredo and Wales captain Ramsey have all joined up.

Negredo.Spain-2011.jpg

Wales-look-to-the-future.jpg

Lucas was the perfect replacement for fletcher was wasn't up to standard , a drop in form sealed the deal. Cahill who already had a spell at Bimringham comes back but Thaliwal has already said he is a transitional part of the team. Negredo has been on top form for club and country and it makes sene for him to join now , Ramsey is perfect fit into the young squad and when we heard the name in the deal it was accepted straight. Ramsey will take time to take Montilvo's role in the team but he will do well.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

What a transformation part 3

The biggest deal so far has been Fletcher leaving yet all the headlines have been changed over night when a huge deal has been completed between Birmingham and United. Fabio Coentrao is now offically a Birmingham city player.

fabio_coentrao.jpg

The deal was Holtby and Velazquez which was described as a bargain buy for Birmingham. Even with such potential of Holtby , Coentrao was just soo much better. Birmingham have made some solid moves in the transfer window and from Thaliwal's own mouth " The team is nearly complete". Birmingham are only looking for one more midfield player and they are done.

What a transformation part 4

What a few days , Smfa have offically reversed the Coentrao and Gaitan deals which leave Birmingham in such a problem. Yet to this day we can never under estimate Birmingham City's manager Thaliwal as he used the money he got back form the Gaitan deal to buy ......

Pizarro and Periera have book joined up for a fee of 16 million for the pair. good dealing for the midlands. get the creative spark which Gaitan brang and a new right back which was all ways needed.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

New look defence

All the buzz in recent weeks has been surrounding the ability of manager Jaspal Thaliwal to go out and sign attacking players. This story is a little different , after the deal of Coentrao has been reversed and leaving the left back positon exposed it was time to shut up shop and get in the market.

alvaro-pereira-300x225.jpg

One of the best left backs in the world has been bought over from Real Madrid and his name is Alvaro Periera. The Uruguay full back has been a great player and has made a good impression on the midlands manager to see him come into the defensive ranks. He will play along side Badstuber and Kjaer with a 3-3-4 formation played.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Good times keep on rolling

What a transformation Jaspal has made at the midlands side which first had Championship quality players now to Champions league quality.

Well its not a shock anymore with Thaliwal's signings , going in BIG.

nuri-sahin-zeigt-liebe-zu-borussia-dortmund_485x3641.jpg?w=zlatan2.jpg

Pazzini1.jpgPA-84316781.jpg

Sahin , Hamsik and Pazzini have made suprise moves to the midlands club Birmingham to try to push to a Champions league qualification. No one expected these players to ever come into the club. Sahin's deal was described as relitively easy with Eintracht Frankfurt being very easy to work with , Birmingham parted with Brazilian superstar Douglas Costa and French right back Corchia. In all these players were devolping to slow to get into the first team so they had to be shifted. Hamsik has been a part of the Barcelona set up for the best part of three seasons so this move came as a shock to everyone. In exchange for the Highly rated midfielder was Cahill and Gundogan , Cahill was not a part of the first team plans and wasn't even on the bench for most games with Gundogan he would take to long to get to Hamsiks level so the deal was clear. Sampdoria were relatively lacking everything from morale to determenation. Pazzini is a huge name foward and wanted a move to a bigger club so Birmingham were the first to knock and got him for Sow and Coulibaly. Eriksen joins the youth ranks to one day make that jump to the first team.

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Tough challenge still in progress

The challenge set is to bring Birmingham to european glory , at this moment nothing has happened. Stability in the top division has been ticked off the list and top half finishs have come at ease. The case now is secure a SMFA shield place and push for the SMFA cup the following season. There has been a lot of progress at the club which can be seen as soon as you see the squad which started to where it is now. Most people dont notice it is much harder to build up a relegation side on the top division then take over smaller teams in division 5 and work up. Thaliwal has shown he is the man for the job and will forever be the one and only City manager.

Hart

Kjaer Badstuber Periera

Moutinho Hamsik Sahin

Hazard Pazzini Hernandez Doumbia

From just looking at the starting 11 you can see Thaliwal has made the side a force in the top division and wont be stopped easily.

Future prospects for birmingham - rodrigues lucas , eriksen , ramsey , jones , smalling , coutinho , wickham , holtby , stefan savic.

All youth players have a bright future so im guessing with all that and having leiva lucas , negredo , mussachio and more on the bench its a preety good place to be within Birmingham

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

End of season news

Well its the end of the season which see Birmingham finish of 7th in the league securing european football next term. It is very good progress and every season the midlands side has always gone up in the table. With the English cup out of their reach when losing the semi finals against rivals Aston Villa Thaliwal said " i will make sure we will make up for it next season and do much better in the league and europe".

Transfers

End of season is when the every team comes alive and begins dealing , first on the market was Birmingham who sold Erding for 20 million. Erding didn't play many games and was told by city manager as a CF he was out of favour with the likes of pazzini , hernandez , pizzaro and negredo. With the 20 million Thaliwal used some to pay of little debt at the side and used the rest to buy back Swedish foward Ola Toivonen for 10.3 million and to strengthen depth in the midfield with highly rated Slokvakian Kucka. Statement realsed saying " Erding and Ola are on the same level including Ola can play attacking midfield and any where attacking sees him as a better fit into the side wherer as Erding was a sole foward. when you see that Thaliwal bought Ola and Kucka for 16 million and sold Erding for 20 million its a great piece of business.

The major transfer so far in the end of season deals is Van der Wiel join the City side for a part exchange deal of Lombraets and Coutinho. Coutinho is highly regarded yet his devolpment is pathetic at this moment. Lombraets was considered nothing more than an average player by Thaliwal. Van der Wiel is highly praised by Jaspal Thaliwal whos sees his side gain a quality right back." I think that Wiel will become a great player for use now and in the future , he still has time to devolp into a great player and we would like to keep him for a long time, unless someone makes us a great offer".

Re: Birmingham city gc76 - Road to Europe

Dreams come true

Many seasons ago Birmingham and Manchester united did a deal which saw Fletcher who would be the icon for the Midlands side for seasons to come for Vidal and Cahill. From that point Vidal has expressed himself in many interviews for his dream to come back to Birmingham and continue the devolpment to the top. The dream has come true for Vidal when his transfer was completed from Arsenal to Birmingham city. Thaliwal made it clear to Kjaer that he was not needed at the club no more and managed to do a swap deal with Vidal. "This deal is perfect for both sides , i gain a top player with a lot of experience at the top , Vidal is adaptable and thats why he is a special player". Vidal hasn't come to the same City side he was once at four seasons ago. Now he must fight for a place on the first team against Joao Moutinho, Sahin and Lucas. With all hype around Vidal , Thaliwal did a quiet deal with Club Brugge KV to get Perisic. A very talented croatian attacking player who has a good future ahead of him. Perisic isn't likely to go anywhere near the first team but an already agreeded loan deal to turkey to play for Fernerbache should help the cause.
