Birmingham’s match against Forest Green Rovers had the vibe of a pre season match from the start, yet the Blues managed to obtain the much expected victory at the New Lawn’s mere 5,032 capacity. Gary Rowett’s trip to the Cotswolds was a worthwhile one, where he will have learnt a lot about his squad for the upcoming campaign. He...
An away game in South Yorkshire against already relegated Rotherham United was the tip on good Friday for Blues. A win is a must, to stave relegation with Wigan & Blackburn surely going down. An unchanged squad from the team that narrowly but disappointingly lost to Derby County last weekend. Just one change for the Millers. Can Rotherham end...
This was a game which meant a lot to both teams, for Leeds, a chance to go top of the league if Cardiff failed to beat Preston and for Blues; well it would have been a chance to properly kick start their season. Elland road is always a tough place to go to on a Tuesday night and the...
Coming up against Newcastle at home in a game where three points were vital, was fairly scary. In all fairness, Blues started the game very brightly. Newcastle were in the game and there was always that threat but Zola’s team dealt with it well in the opening exchanges. An early attempt in the sixth minute from Robert Tesche was...
Red is the colour. Grey clouds welcomed us as we pulled up to Elland road and the home of Leeds United. A tough first away game of the season for Blues but chance to put right Tuesday nights result. Blues two new recruits Che Adams & Greg Stewart on the bench for the away side who looked rather smart in their...
A return to pride park for the Blues where they have, in recent years, got some decent results. Playing a side managed by former manager Gary Rowett - who organises his sides very well, you could imagine a quite solid County team. Lee Carsley on the other hand, who’s stepped in as caretaker whilst the Blues hierarchy find a...
The first game of the new 2017-18 season, sights were set high with Harry Redknapp the man in charge after keeping the boys in royal blue up in the division last season. A few new signings in the team, promotion winning Brighton's former keeper David Stockdale, former Barnsley defender Marc Roberts and midfielder Cheick N'doye from Angers in France....
A new era begun at Villa Park on Sunday, Harry Redknapp was appointed Birmingham City manager last nearly a week ago, after the resignation of Gianfranco Zola after Blues' 0-2 home defeat to the hands of Burton Albion. It was the second city Derby, a stunning time for Redknapp to take his bow as the new Blues boss. He...
Blues survived a late scare to grab all three points from a dangerous but wasteful Reading side. It was the biggest opening day attendance in seven years. The Blues boss fielded three debutants against Reading - and each of them made their mark in their own separate ways. Goals from David Cotterill and Jon Toral were enough to seal the...

Keeping it clean

Back on the road again.... 72 hours have passed since fun in Fulham and this time 1186 blue noses were headed to Reading... A late change to the starting lineup from both sides was as exciting as it got first 10 minutes. Jutkiewicz making his first start since joining on loan from Burnley almost putting the away side ahead from Cotterill's...
