Hart Will Be A Busy-Blue At Birmingham City

Hart Will Be A Busy-Blue At Birmingham City


Manchester City confirmed earlier today that number two shot stopper, Joe Hart has moved to Premier League newbies Birmingham City on a season long loan deal.

Shay Given ousted Joe (22) in January and ever since his move poor old Joe has done nothing but warm the City bench.

The England Under-21 international, regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the game is expected to nudge Birmingham's current keeper, Maik Taylor down the pecking order.

The former Shrewsbury youngster, who has been capped once by the senior England side told the official Manchester City site...

'It has been tough. It's frustrating, but there's only one person can play in goal and Shay's doing that at the moment.'

'I've had to deal with it the best I can. It's not been ideal, but it's not the end of the world.'


With the St Andrews club being one of the favourite sides to automatically return to the Championship Joe Hart is expected to be one heck of a busy-blue.

This was the right thing to do for all parties. Hart needs first team Premiership games and his time at Birmingham will improve him.

I have no problem with the loan provided there is a clause allowing him to return in the year should be need him 'in extremis' - has anyone seen this mentioned or is it taken as read?

Thanks for that! i wouldn't think he'll return to man city to sit behind shay given so as long as birmingham stay up i think he's likely to stay long term at st.andrews! I'm a little dissapointed with your reference to hart being a busy blue we do appear to be giving it a go in the transfer market unfortunatly we can't all shop at harrods! Don't forget your roots though most of us want you to break the top four and more! But for the grace of god and all that!

Okaay, he'll be exposed cruelly by a weak defence and get peppered! lol kidding. He's a top prospect, definitely the solution to England's GK problem.

chalk - so it's arrogant to suggest a newly promoted team to the prem is gonna struggle? I guess that makes everyone in the country arrogant then because it's not just Doody who believes that.

The guy did absolutely nothing wrong, and still got shunted - I feel for him. But he will come back stronger and better, and when Given hands over the gloves, we will have the best English keeper in the business, and one of the best in the World.
