A visit to the seaside to face joint top Brighton and Hove Albion and former Blues manager Chris Hughton was of the helm at the AMEX. Zola’s men, in real relegation trouble with only being six points above that dreaded bottom three where already relegated Rotherham, Wigan and Blackburn lie. A game where Blues didn’t stand a chance on...
A trip to Portman Road in Suffolk on the first day of April for the blue boys. A solid turnout of away supporters, ready to fight till the end against an out of form Ipswich side managed by Mick McCarthy. The home team had the better of the early exchanges but Blues did come into their own 25 minutes...
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...
A trip to South Wales to face the Bluebirds of Cardiff City for Gianfranco Zola’s Birmingham City. Cardiff going well with manager Neil Warnock, who came into replace Paul Trollope who was sacked not so long before the new year.

After a disappointing last few weeks, even months, Gianfranco Zola still had the weight of the world on his shoulders going into the game against London side QPR at St. Andrews on Saturday. It was an occasion in which the Blues midfield suffered, with both David Davis and Craig Gardner missing through suspension. So the starting formation selected by...
Preston North End away, a really good opportunity for Gianfranco Zola and his team to step-up to the plate and get his second win in thirteen games. Another 4-3-3 set-up was the for formation Zola went with ahead of the tough visit to Deepdale Stadium, with three changes made.
Zola had his first win as Birmingham boss against Fulham last weekend but had a really tough game to follow that up with on Friday night. A trip up the M1 to face Carlos Carvahal’s Sheffield Wednesday side was an exciting prospect, but with a not so good record from his first eleven games, and the pressure was still...
