Ahead of Blues derby clash with their near neighbours across the expressway, Che Adams has been awarded the SKY Bet Championship player of the month award for February on the back of a six goal accumulation which included a hat trick at QPR and brace against Blackburn Rovers during that period.
Adam’s has been the most improved player at Blues since the appointment of Garry Monk last February who has helped transform the rather inconsistent forward of old into a player who has netted 21 league goals in 35 appearances already this season.
As Blues look forward to the second city derby at St Andrew’s this Sunday dinnertime, Che told the official website “It’s an honour to receive this award, I’m really grateful. I’ve felt good and confident in front of goal and I managed to be clinical during the month.”
Although Blues have not faired well against their city rivals since they were relegated to the Championship in 2016, the spirit and togetherness that Garry Monk has created within the squad since has seen Blues punch well above their weight this season and a victory against Sunday’s opponents cannot be ruled out. And dependant on the punishment that is meted out by the EFL regarding a points deduction; Blues could well find themselves finish above the big spenders from Aston.
Speaking about the excellent job Monk has done, Adams continued; “We are a really united team at Birmingham, everyone does their bit. We all have a good understanding of what our roles are and I’m benefitting from that, as well as regular game time.”

The equipment has been donated by Plymouth College of Art and Design, however the shipping costs need to be raised. I am looking for support to enable this to happen.
The shipping costs are around £4000 however I have already received a number of donations, hence the total needed now is £1,405.
Birmingham City have kindly given me 2 match day tickets to help raise further funds. There is a choice of either 2 tickets for the Middlesbrough or for the Hull games. To be clear, it’s an either / or!
As it is a raffle you need to buy a ticket for the draw. The cost is £5 per ticket. The payment must be made via paypal to email@example.com Your name and email address will be put into the pot for the draw. You can purchase more than one raffle ticket which will multiply your chances of winning. So if you buy 3 raffle tickets your name will be added 3 times.
The raffle will run until 17.00 on Friday 23rd February.
If you want to ask further questions or would just like to donate and not be entered into the draw, contact me.
All the money raised will either go to the total required to pay the shipping costs or if we meet that, will be donated to Rwanda Legacy of Hope charity.
The scaremongering amongst some Blues fans is understandable given the loss first choice goalkeeper Darren Randolph and the release of his understudy Colin Doyle. But please don’t fear, Gary Rowett is here. Blues have been linked with their former reserve stopper Adam Legzdins, who they released in 2008. Many have taken this as a sign of failure to attract a number one.
Now we’re all in the mood aren’t we? An opening game of the season at home to Reading, a team we comfortably beat twice last season, offers Blues the chance to open the campaign with a win. But Royals manager Steve Clarke will have other ideas as he looks to build a squad to compete in the Championship. Make no bones about it, Reading were shambolic at times last season. The 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Blues back in December summed up my point. If it wasn’t for an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley in which they were undeservedly beaten by Arsenal, their season would have been a complete write-off.
