Thoughts on Brentford

Yes, Blues should have won the game at Brentford. And yes it was two points lost. But no matter how you dress it up, a draw on the road anywhere is decent and who wouldn’t have taken five points from four league games? I honestly believe Lee Clark is starting to get things right. Admittedly his substitutions were naïve, but the improvement in performances should see us all with cause for optimism.

Thoughts on David Davis & the Weekend

Tom Adeyemi, David Davis. What’s the difference? Both enjoy a robust energetic style of play, both are central midfielders, both decent are Championship players. The difference? £900,000. That’s right. Lee Clark loses a player for the best part of £1m, replaces him with a like-for-like for a tenth of the cost.

Brighton Thoughts…

At last, a league win at St. Andrew’s. It has been a long wait since that 4-0 drubbing of Millwall on October 1st, but finally, the monkey is off Blues’ back. A single Wes Thomas goal saw off a lacklustre Brighton.

Birmingham City Get the Job Done in Extra Time

In the end, Birmingham City got the job done. Nobody wanted extra time, but sometimes in cup football, it happens. Blues were up against a very resilient Cambridge side, but in truth, the game should have been over in the 90 minutes. Clayton Donaldson, who looks like a good acquisition, should have tucked his 90th minute header away. But I’m not going to complain, as we can now look forward to the second round draw.

Brand New Team, Same Old Problems

Is it a case of ‘here we go again’? Brand new team, same old problems. It seems as if Blues’ excellent pre-season was a flash in the pan. Gone were the goals, the attacking flare and defensive solidity. Back came the toothless attacking, lack of ideas and school boy defending.
