Tom Brady has Birmingham City fans unhappy with his

Birmingham City, an English soccer club, have experienced a dramatic loss of form since replacing John Eustace with Wayne Rooney as head coach and it appears that the fans want to hold Tom Brady accountable, despite him being a minority shareholder.

Rooney took over the EFL Sky Bet Championship club, one league below the Premier League, on October 11, when the club were sixth in the league after a 3-1 local derby victory but seven games later they have sunk to a lowly 15th with the ex-England captain mustering up one win during that time.

The seven-time Super Bowl winner attended the game against Rotherham United, which ended as a 0-0 draw on December 2 but after posting an image of the St Andrew’s Stadium on X.com, formerly Twitter, he caught some flak from disgruntled Bluenoses.

Brady previously admitted that he has to learn about soccer but as the fans blame anyone who represent the club, here is a reminder of the words he said in August.

“Well, let’s just say, I’ve got a lot to learn,” Brady said at the time. “But I do know a few things about winning, and I think they might translate pretty well.”

“I know success starts with the work put in when the world isn’t watching. I know that a team is nothing without the city that shows up and stands behind it. And most importantly, I know I like being the underdog.”

Who owns Birmingham City?

In August 2023, a US-based company, titled, “Shelby Companies Limited” (SCL) bought the club after being backed by “Knighthead Capital Management”.

The new owners, with their name inspired by the hit BBC show “The Peaky Blinders”, acquired a 45.98% ownership in the club, which included the stadium St Andrew’s.

The co-founder, co-chief executive and subsequently true owner of Birmingham City is Tom Wagner who at the time outlined his plans for the future.

Brady is involved with the company, but he only holds a 5% stake meaning that he is a minority owner and doesn’t have controlling influence over the decisions of the company nor the running of the soccer club.
