Craig Levein Leaves Scotland National Team After Punch-Up With Kenny Miller

The SFA are disappointed to confirm today that manager Craig Levein's Contract had been terminated for violent conduct. The Manager was involved in a training ground fight.

The Punch up took place during a training session where Levein reportedly lashed out at Kenny Miller after Miller allegedly claimed that Levein was not good enough for the job.

Levein was said to have thrown wild punches at Miller, resulting in a cut to the eye needing medical attention. Miller is in a stable condition but is shocked by what happened and has apologized for his words.

Miller has also been fined by the SFA for improper conduct.

Despite the blow Miller has chosen not press charges.

Levein Has stated that he is bitterly disappointed with his conduct and has come out and publicly apologized to the Scotland Fans and Kenny Miller and hopes he can return to Management soon.

Fans are calling for a Scotsman at the Helm but Steve Bruce Could be tempted by international management.

Alex McLeish could return for a Second Stint after proving to be a success at Birmingham

Though he was the fans first choice, Sir Alex Ferguson has immediately ruled himself out according to his spokesperson but his son is believed to be looking for a new challenge.

Odds For next Scotland Manager
David Moyes 3/1
Steve Bruce 8/1
Alex Mcleish 10/1
Darren Ferguson 50/1

Moyes Not Done With Everton

David Moyes has today released a statement regarding his status as Everton Manager.
The statement read:

“ I would like to take the opportunity to thank the SFA for considering me for the job of Scotland Manager. It has been a life long ambition of mine to manage my country but I believe that I still owe it to Everton to continue to push for Europe this year.
I however would like to take up this opportunity at another time but I believe that currently, the time is not right”

Reports have surfaced that Steve Bruce has asked to be offered the job of Scotland Manager.
It is believed he wants a two year deal.

Scotland Fans are Furious that Bruce is being considered as they are adamant on having a Native manager

Darren Ferguson Not the man for us

The SFA have today said that they will not take on Darren Ferguson as he does not have enough experience to handle the pressures. They have however thanked Darren Ferguson for his interest but are not willing to risk causing unrest with the fans. They wish Darren Ferguson Well for his future endeavors and in no way are questioning Ferguson's Ability to manage a club

Ferguson is believed to be disappointed but wishes the next manager well.

They have also said that it is now a two horse race, with Steve Bruce and Alex McLeish the men they are considering for the Job.

Bruce is believed to have lashed out at McLeish, claiming that he had already had his "turn"

Fans are calling for McLeish to return to the helm but Bruce is favourite, due to the lack of success of McLeish's First Reign.
Fans are reportedly going to boycott Attending Scotland Games if Bruce is Picked, until he leaves

Steve Bruce 3/1
Alex McLeish 5/1

Though Kadlec Was the Only Pre-Season Transfer In , Im still pleased 8/10

Im impressed with most of my squad so maybe only 1 more transfer IN

Transfers OUT

Stuart Parnaby 1.3m

Decided to sell him, to free up some squad space. He is the only Pre-Season Departure and maybe the only one this window

Carling Cup Second Round Draw

Birmingham Will Play Coventry

---------- Post added at 08:23 PM ---------- Previous post was yesterday at 11:52 PM ----------

August 2010

Awful August For Birmingham

League Game 1: vs West Brom 1-1

We were on top for possession but we were wasteful, so many shots off-target. West Brom were favourites however but we also had 2 goals disallowed which was frustrating.

Match Rating: 5/10

League Game 2: vs Everton 1-0

Once Again The opposition were favorites. But we only got 1/4 of our shots on target and this needs to be addressed. Not suprised about the defeat but we need a win.

Match Rating: 3/10

Carling Cup Second Round vs Coventry- 2-1

Pleased to Proceed to the next round but im disappointed with the 2 shots on target which turned out to be our goals. Want a good cup run so im not too bad.

Match Rating: 6/10

League Game 3: vs Tottenham 0-3

We Werent expected to win but i expected better, this month has been sh*t but hopefully September will be better.

Match Rating: 4/10

On a Brighter Note!:

Charlie Adam Completes 7.75m Move To Birmingham(as seen in screenies)

Also: Birmingham Will Play Cheltenham in Carling Cup Third Round


I Believe We could pick up all 4 wins but with current form and wasted chances i predict 6 Points and Win against Cheltenham
