Shane Ferguson: The winger is looking forward to challenge at Birmingham

The Northern Ireland international impressed the St Andrew's club following an 11-game spell last campaign.

And now the 22-year-old from Derry is determined to make an impression under manager Lee Clark with the new Championship season just around the corner.

"I am really looking forward to it," Ferguson said.

"I had a meeting with the (Newcastle) manager and he said he wanted me to get out and have a full season of games.

"I am really happy it has happened like this.

"It's good for me to get experience and come back to Birmingham.

"I just want to play as many games as I can and help the team as much as I can.

"I came for the last two months and that makes it a lot easier this time. I know all the lads and staff here.

"And the loan being over a season, that's good for me - and hopefully Birmingham, too."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
