CITY DO OWE A DEBT TO MYS­TIC YE­UNG

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

AC­CORD­ING to Birm­ing­ham City’s own­ers BIHL, out­go­ing owner Car­son Ye­ung is a man with some se­ri­ous ex­tra-sen­sory per­cep­tion.

“Mr Ye­ung, with his fore­sight, aspi­ra­tion and clair­voy­ance, has steered the board suc­cess­fully through land­mark projects such as the ac­qui­si­tion of Birm­ing­ham City Foot­ball Club, for which the board is pro­foundly in­debted.”

Now, I hate to sound like a cynic. I mean, Mys­tic Meg did once say Li­bras would be lucky the VERY night I won a ten­ner on the lot­tery.

But there is a great deal of ev­i­dence to sug­gest that Mr Ye­ung is no sa­vant. A true clair­voy­ant, for in­stance, would have known that Nikola Zigic would be­come the most use­less drain on re­sources since trop­i­cal fish-lov­ing Peter Ridsdale’s tetras.

A clair­voy­ant would also have known that Birm­ing­ham would fall to pieces af­ter win­ning the League Cup and end up in the Cham­pi­onship.

And surely he’d have bailed out of Hong Kong long be­fore spend­ing three years in clink whilst the cops in­ves­ti­gated mon­ey­laun­der­ing charges.

There again, maybe the folks at BIHL are just co­me­di­ans. Af­ter all, the club has cer­tainly been left “pro­foundly in­debted” whilst Ye­ung has been banged up.
