Sullivan slams Blues fans

09 January 2007 12:48
Birmingham City co-owner David Sullivan has criticised the fans who have turned on the Blues board over a perceived failure to back manager Steve Bruce in the transfer market. Bruce has already revealed the St Andrew's coffers are empty and the Championship leaders won't be making any major moves in the transfer market. That claim led to criticism of the board by some sections of the City faithful - something that has angered Sullivan who says he is digging deep to fund the acquisition of a new striker. "We are top of the table - we are not a bad side, you know - but the fans not coming out to fill the ground and get behind the club," he told the Birmingham Mail. "We are £5million overdrawn, in breach of our overdraft limit with the bank. There is no money there. I'm worn out by this gimme, gimme, gimme attitude. "At the same time, we are looking to buy players to help the manager and the team. "We are putting our own money in and we accept that the injury to Nicklas Bendtner means we have to buy a striker, and we will. That's our priority."
