Robbie signs for Birmingham

Last updated : 05 January 2005 By Tony Scholes

He makes a return to the Premiership that he left with Bradford City at the end of the 2000/01 season after a few weeks that Robbie, Burnley FC and its supporters could well have done without.

The deal has been confirmed by Birmingham and there are add on payments to the intial fee which have not been made public as yet although one appears to be based on Birmingham not being relegated and another on his first team appearances.

He will have to wait for his debut because he is not eligible for the FA Cup tie this weekend and will presumably be in the Birmingham squad at Charlton a week on Saturday.

We’re angry over what has happened in the last few weeks, and rightly so, but can now wish Robbie Blake all the best at his new club.
