Blues Finding Their Level as they Slump to Defeat

Another game, another defeat. Blues have scored five goals in their last two away fixtures and come away with diddly-squat. And why? Because our defence has gone to pot. Back to the good old Lee Clark days we go. But we shouldn’t really moan too much, I believe that Blues, who were punching well above their weight in the early days of Gary Rowett’s tenure, have found their standard now: not quite a bottom three side, not quite a mid-table side and nowhere near a team ready to even mention the words ‘play-off’s’. Assuming we do not get lumbered with a ten point deduction, Blues will be ok this season.

Birmingham City FC and BIHL Receivership

Despite how the national media make it sound, the news that the parent company of Birmingham City FC, BIHL has gone into voluntary receivership is good news for the football club. Personality clashes at boardroom level have become too much for the majority of shareholders, so calling in the receivers was a bold move. Not only does this mean that the company’s finances will be handled by Ernst & Young, but also that any potential buyers will no longer be negotiating with Peter Pannu.

Justice for Jeff – A Message from the Astle Family

JUSTICE FOR JEFF ASTLE

Nine minutes into Saturday’s game a large banner will be unveiled in the away end reading ‘Justice for Jeff’ which starts a minute’s applause – nine being the famous shirt number our dad wore.

Justice for Jeff Astle

City fans are more than welcome to join in with the applause if they choose; for which we would be very grateful for; but if not we would like to take this opportunity to make them aware of our campaign if they haven’t already seen it via the local or national media. Read More…

Birmingham Sting Hornets

Am I exaggerating by saying the performance against Watford, last night, was the best on home turf for two and a half years? Forgive me if I am wrong, or getting carried away. Someone please correct me if I am! But I don’t recall a performance as complete, as satisfying and as competent as that for a long long time, especially at St. Andrew’s. What we witnessed on Tuesday night was a manager who had a game plan, players who bought into, and understood, that game plan, and players having confidence to express themselves and play without fear. Stans was rocking at the sight on Stephen Gleeson bossing the midfield and Clayton Donaldson being, at times, unplayable.

Defence the Key at Molineux

I struggle to recall a time that I have been so happy with a goalless draw. The point at the Molineux was a massive one for Blues and their new manager Gary Rowett, but the clean sheet was arguably as important. Rowett has done in four days what Lee Clark failed to do in two years, it was a refreshing change to see a Blues side defend so well and look so organised.
