Birmingham City will be looking to put their off-field issues behind them when they begin their pre-season against Portimonense on Tuesday. The clash against the Portuguese side will be a difficult test for the Championship side. With potential takeover talks making headlines in Birmingham recently, the transfer situation has reportedly taken a back seat for the club. Besides, manager Lee Bowyer was recently relieved of his duties and was replaced by John Eustace. Keeping in mind their off-field concerns, Eustace has to somehow prepare his team in the best possible way for the upcoming season.
