Followers of this blog will be aware that our contract with the original venue for ICMI18, St Andrews Stadium – the home of Birmingham City FC – was cancelled by the club on 1 November, with no legal grounds for doing so, and without prior notice.
We received an email from one of the club’s directors just a few hours after the publication of a hit piece by Daniel Storey on the website Football365. The comments stream, at least, is worth catching. The overwhelming majority of the comments are supportive of J4MB and/or critical of the article, and ‘upvotes’ made accordingly.
Our thanks to Ken for pointing out that Football365 is operated by 365 Media Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyUK. He tells me he’s cancelled his subscription to Sky TV, and is encouraging others to do likewise.
