The midweek game sees Millwall FC visit St.Andrews, with the London side looking to end a run of four straight losses as they languish one place above the drop zone. Meanwhile, the home side return to their own turf just three days after the narrow 1-0 defeat to local rivals Aston Villa which resulted...
A few weeks ago, I was anticipating the second city derby with excitement and expectation. That is slowly being replaced by nervousness and apprehension.  This isn't my usual pessimistic nature but a natural human emotion ahead of derby day... isn't it?! Admittedly, Blues' abject performance at Hull last weekend - coupled...
Last week’s loss to Bolton was all too predictable, with many people on social media and before the game thinking we were going to lose. However I think we need to look on the bright side. We got to see small flashes of brilliance from Mrabti, with an on-the-ball relationship of football intelligence between him and Adams...
Birmingham return to home soil looking to close the gap on the play-off pack. St.Andrews will play host to a Bolton Wanderers side desperate for points as they enter the closing stages of the season second from bottom, but only four points off Rotherham United, who occupy the place above the drop zone.
Friday night football sees Blues take on third place side, Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship tonight at Carrow Road. When we took on our opponents in the first game of the season, a very, very late equaliser for the Canaries via Onel Hernández meant the points were shared on day one. Since then, Daniel Farke's side have won...
A bumper crowd is expected on Saturday as we host Monk’s old club Middlesbrough F.C who look to reignite their form to stay in the play-off mix. The Teesside club have lost only twice on the road this season and typically do well against the Blues, unbeaten in the last nine matches played between...
It seems like no time at all, but the FA Cup third round has rolled around again. Last time we reached the 4th round, where we faced Huddersfield twice, but arguably only should’ve been once, after a perfectly fair Juktiewicz header, which we have become used to seeing this season, was ruled out by the linesman. In...
After Wednesday’s performance, I think the team have set a massive example. Every ball was chased, every man was marked and every shot had bodies thrown in front of. The fight, passion and desire this team have has surpassed every expectation set by the fans. As a fan this is brilliant to see and only inspires us,...
The busy festive period is really in full swing and blues begin a hectic Christmas schedule with a very tricky trip to Blackburn this Saturday looking to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat to Bristol city in which blues’ unbeaten home run came crashing to an end. This...
This afternoon, we take on Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship. The match will be played on home turf and we'll look to make it 3 consecutive wins on the bounce, following our 3-0 breeze against Preston, and continue our long, unbeaten spell at St. Andrew's. Blues are slowly but surely reviving their form after a rotten dip before...
