Birmingham City are at the centre of a dressing room row of Alex Ferguson proportions - but it's not the Blues' players facing the wrath of manager Steve Bruce.
Instead, the club's ire has been raised by the auction of four sheets of paper advertised as showing Bruce's tactics for his team's away game at Blackburn Rovers.
The sheets were originally stuck to the wall of the dressing room at Rovers' Ewood Park ground during last month's fixture, which Blues lost 2-0.
Now however, they are being offered on the eBay internet site and have already attracted bids of more than #200 with about a week to the sale deadline.
Depicting a series of set pieces, they feature players' initials and arrows showing how they should be responding at free kicks and corners. The papers are said to have boot tape, used to put them on the wall, still stuck on them.
Blues have already contacted eBay to argue for the items to be removed from the site. The club is thought to be considering whether the sheets could be deemed to be "intellectual property".
The Blackburn game was settled by goals from Paul Dickov and Craig Bellamy and saw Blues crash to a third consecutive defeat during what has become a miserable season in which the team has won only one league game.
It is unclear how the sheets got into the hands of the seller, but they could have been taken by a fan when the Blues team left the dressing room after the game.
A spokesman at Birmingham City last night said: "The club does not feel it is right that people are profiting from the team's discarded items and we are looking into the matter further."
He also said it was the St Andrew's coaching staff, and not Bruce, who wrote on the sheets.
"They have nothing to do with Steve Bruce."
The seller describes the sheets as: "A fascinating insight into the team tactics employed by Birmingham in the Premier League."
