It seems there was a worrying disconnect between the Blues team and fans at Barnsley last Saturday. From what I saw on Davo's Diary, players received the 'You're not fit to wear the shirt' treatment, which I don't recall our fans singing since Fulham away in 2008. I don't agree with our fans singing that, but it also disappointed me...
The defeat on Saturday was yet another bitter pill to swallow for the travelling fans. Giving up their hard earnt money to watch the players not even turn up prompted them to let their feelings heard. “You're not fit to wear the shirt” rang from the terrace as the players trudged off down the nearby tunnel. You can't blame...
Blues find themselves staring at a potential relegation dog fight already and last night's defeat to Brentford didn't help the cause. No desire Cotterill's side are consistently inconsistent in terms of performances. Many Blues fans left St Andrew's on Sunday with a smile on their face. Just three days later, it's a different story. Albeit it was a derby and the...
A battered and bruised Birmingham City side and an inconsistent Villa team go into the second city derby on Sunday. And after a 2-0 defeat away in south Bermondsey, London against Millwall, Blues will be looking for a response after a performance that was not respectable at all and a result that none of us wanted after a win...
Steve Cotterill – What’s changed? Cotterill made a dream debut in the Blues hot seat on Friday, as Birmingham saw off top of the table Cardiff in what is being described by many, as our best performance of the season so far. So, what changed? How did a third from bottom Blues team secure 3 points from the high-flying bluebirds?...
During the summer, Harry Redknapp claimed "it isn't difficult to build a team to get out of this league". Whilst making a rod for his own back, Redknapp also increased the expectations and optimism around St. Andrews. As seems to be the norm in B9, that early balloon of optimism was shot down with a dart. While the club backed...
BLUES FALL VICTIM TO CRUSHING DEFEAT Lifeless Performance Sees Blues Beaten Heavily After a glimmer of hope in midweek as Blues beat Sheffield Wednesday, Blues fell victim to a brutal defeat in which they conceded due to poor defending, questionable goalkeeping and unnecessary fouls inside the box. Hull started the game strongly and after a David Davis mistake, Hull took the lead...
After being a key part in last season's survival, Steve Cotterill returns to St. Andrew's for a second spell but this time as manager. His previous spell lasted only a few games as he did not want to stay on as an assistant manager and wanted to become the gaffer. However, Redknapp stayed and Cotterill left the managerial team....
There is now another former Blues player in the betting, this time it's 42-year-old Graham Potter. Currently manager of Swedish club Östersunds FK, the Solihull-born man could be a shock name to take the reigns at St Andrews. Sky Bet currently have him at 16/1 to take the hotseat. That's strong odds considering he's come straight into the betting only yesterday and player-coach...
Today's odds have tumbled for former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores to become the next Blues manager. Flores has emerged a surprise candidate for the hotseat, which was vacated by Harry Redknapp the other week. The Spaniard, who is currently in charge at Espanyol, is 12-1 with the bookies for the job, behind Steve McLaren, Steve Cotterill, Aitor Karanka, Lee Carsley,...
