'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pannu Warns Blues Must Be Prudent

Birmingham City chief Peter Pannu is warning that Blues must be very careful in their spending from now on so that they don`t end up with financial problems like some other clubs.

Carson Yeung has now been at the club for a year and in that time he has not been shy when it comes to financing team improvements with the likes of Alexander Hleb, Ben Foster and Nikola Zigic to the payroll.

But City vice-chairman Pannu has warned fans not to expect things to carry on like this without restraints.

'Carson wants to build the club but he is also equally mindful of the pitfalls of improving at a pace that could cause problems for the club,' Pannu told the Birmingham Mail.

'It has to be done at a more sustainable level, step by step.

'The fans wish to see improvements on the pitch but how you achieve that is important.

'Blindly demanding the owners pump in money to secure established players is equivalent to a wife saying 'if you don't do this and that on credit, then I will leave you'.

'I think none of our fans would do that but will try to satisfy the wife in a different way or call it quits.

'In the context of a financial household situation, running a football club is no different.'
