GETTING BACK IN THE GAME? In London, Adrian Curtis reports former EPL club Birmingham co-Owners David Sullivan and David Gold are "seeking another club after selling their stake" in the team. Sullivan grew up as a fan of West Ham United, but the club's finances are "reportedly in a desperate state, and he could be put off by a possible" US$162.4M asking price. Sullivan: "The debts that appear to be at West Ham seem huge. I'm not sure I could face what is going on there" (London INDEPENDENT, 10/15).
