Jonathan Spector re-ups with Birmingham City
   June 28, 2013 (6:32 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post

Midfielder/fullback Jonathan Spector, having spent the last two years with Birmingham City in the 2nd tier, will spend two more years trying to help the Blues get Premier League soccer back to St. Andrew’s.

The 27-year-old has made 76 appearances for the Blues since joining from West Ham on a free transfer in 2011.

USA international Spector, who can also play in defence, becomes the Blues’ final senior out-of-contract player to have agreed new terms at the club.

“His versatility is a big thing for us as he can cover different positions,” boss Lee Clark told the club site.

“As well as midfield he can play as a full-back, although I ultimately think that as he goes on he could be a decent centre-half because he’s an aggressive player, he’s got good aerial ability and he’s mobile.

Spector, of course, was famously moved on the fly from forward to defense while with the U-17s kicking off a career of utilitymanness. That flexibility probably keeps him employed at a decent level while it will always probably keep him from being more than a AAAA player/fringe Nat.

Howie once received a death threat at a USA-Brazil friendly. He still believes in Fred Adu. He plays forward in coed rec, although not well.

    Spector played great as a defensive super-sub vs Italy and hasn’t been called-up since.

  2. Ufficio says:

    Spector mobile? Is the sense that he’s capable of moving, I suppose.

  3. Dirk says:

    Spector has found his level. Spector was not great against Italy. I remember a few occasions he was left in the dust. We were fortunate to hold on for the win in that match, Italy controlled the ball the entire 2nd half.
