Match Previews

In depth Match Previews from the BCFC Followers team

For the first time this season Blues suffered back to back to defeats and the fans will be hoping Rowett's men can muster a reaction tonight against Ipswich. Conceding seven goals is bad enough, but when the games are about to come thick and fast, Blues will have to pick themselves up quickly or they can find themselves slide down...
The skies are blue, the sun is shining, the temperature is scorching! What a beautiful day to sit in a coach for about 5 hours! Yes, today, unfortunately for us brummies, Blues are away to Reading, meaning just over 1000 Blues fans will spend this beautiful day making the 2 hr 30min journey to the outskirts of London for...
Praise the footballing Gods! Domestic football is back after a pretty gruelling international break (*cough* England *cough*) and Gods favoured species are able to once again witness their football team give their all for 90 minutes (All apart from Villa). The Blues return in the capital where Fulham are the next opponent. The difficulty with a team as glorious as...
Tonight, Birmingham travel to Lancashire, as newly promoted, League 1 champions Wigan Athletic host the Blues. It's the 3rd game of the new EFL Championship season and one which could go either way. Both sides picked up their first win of the season on Saturday after disappointing defeats to low league opposition, in the EFL Cup. Wigan demolished, what...
Tonight, blues fans are once again given the pleasure to return to the fortress where we face a visit from EFL League 1 side, Oxford United. It’s Blues’ first game in the newly renamed EFL Cup, and despite the consistent name change of the tournament, it’s one that has always been kind to the Blue side of the city....
Alas! The new season is right around the corner, with what is almost certain to be another teasing, rollercoaster of a season at St. Andrews, starting how it ended. Blues begin their season this Saturday, at B9, against Cardiff City. The 2015/16 campaign ended with what was a pretty boring one-all draw down at the Welsh capital; a result which...

The final game of the season and by and large a chance to see a couple of players play their final games and finish the season on a high. Reflecting back on the campaign, the only real disappointment is that the season dropped away as opposed to picking up and us finishing in the top half. The team has definitely...
Since the disappointing draw against Huddersfield Town that saw us lose yet another lead, this week has largely been about the next generation. Emmanuel Mbende, Connal Trueman, Noe Baba, Jacob Weaver and Josh Cogley will have another year to try and force themselves into first-team recognitiion. On top of that, the quintet's team-mates were making it 8 unbeaten in the under...
