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...
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...
Blues look set to be destined for league one with another loss in the league. Four wins in 24, 12 goals scored and 34 conceded. Steve Cotterill fielded the same team which drew to the black cats of Sunderland two days before Christmas apart from striker Sam Gallagher who was sent off in that game. Fans came here on...
A fixture blues haven’t lost in for 21 years, would that stay the same after 90 minutes at the Den between Millwall and Birmingham City? Steve Cotterill’s players were buzzing after their heroics last Friday night in the 1-0 victory over Cardiff City, who topped the table at the time. Millwall on the other hand had been steadily rising...
A nightmare day for Birmingham City and a result which will live in the history for a long time to come and not in a good way. Blues came to the KCOM knowing new boss, and not long appointed Steve Cotterill would be watching on and with it being caretaker manager Lee Carsley’s final game in temporary charge, he’d...
Charlie Wellings inspired Birmingham City Ladies to a 3-0 win over Everton on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the Marine Travel Arena. Ellen White also scored her fifteenth goal of the season to add the gloss to the Blues’ last away trip of the campaign. The win leaves Marc Skinner’s side in fifth with a top-three finish still in contention with...
Ipswich Town at home for Birmingham City after the international break and a chance to really show why they should remain in this league for next season. Ipswich come to the second city knowing their manager, Mick McCarthy, won’t be at Portman Road next season after announcing he won’t be extending his contract. One change from the side that...
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...
I'd got so used to going to Bolton for our final away game of the season that it was a bit of a shock to drive off into another country yesterday. In the event, it was a typical season ender for two teams that hadn't got anything particular to play for.  There were no relegations, no playoff places at stake,...
It was a wet and windy night in Birmingham ahead of a Championship fixture at home against Wigan Athletic, who were battling to stay alive in the division. Fans were upset after the loss to Leeds United on Friday night, but there was hope within that performance and tonight, fans thought they should be seeing three points from the...
