Dear The Football League, The Owners’ and Directors’ test (previously called Fit & Proper Persons test) was brought into effect in 2005. The purpose of the test is to better protect clubs and the reputation and image of the game, thus to protect Football League member clubs from Owners and Directors who might mismanage or ultimately guide a club into administration. With this in mind, rules and guidelines were written to protect member clubs. 

The fundamental intention of the test - to protect member clubs and act in their best interests - should not be forgotten. After Carson Yeung was arrested way back in 2011 Birmingham City Football Club has been deserted off the field. The club dipped into League One last season - ultimately a last minute goal kept us afloat - in footballing terms. Fans have had no answers and have been left in the dark for a long time, peaceful protests were organised and letters were sent. But nothing would stem large enough to receive a response.

Peter Pannu allegedly posted comments on the Often Partisan website; Pannu raised a threat of suing Ivery over the book and said Ivery had been disrespectful when offering to meet Pannu in Hong Kong to give him a copy of the book in a “shit hole pub in wan chai girly bar [sic]”. In a rambling post also dealing with the finances and ownership of the club, Pannu said City would run out of money in January or February because of a £1.8m tax bill which had not been accounted for. This sparked havoc on social media and Blues fans were beginning to wonder if Carson Yeung had still been involved with the club. Although the club have insisted Yeung retains no influence in a statement, many questions still remain.

Blues Trust have contacted you and hopefully this petition makes you realise what damage has already been done to our beloved club. We want the same disqualifying condition on Carson Yeung and Peter Pannu that was recently applied to Leeds owner Massimo Cellino. We also ask you to review the current situation at BCFC, providing both guidance and assurance that Mr. Yeung and/or any other associated individuals are not in breach of several areas of their Rules’.

Birmingham International Holdings have now halted trading in shares once again. The news announced today awaits an official announcement from BIHL. This may welcome Jeremy Wray's bid or it may prolong this never ending saga. In the meantime Birmingham fans need answers and you owe those to us.

If you want answers then simply sign this e-petition and share it with your family and friends! Delay No More.
