It never rains but it pours

Birmingham City 0 – Preston North End 1

Sod and sodden. Blues still can’t buy a win at St Andrews as Preston got the three points in a game that we probably didn’t deserve to lose, but did as a result of a ropey fifteen minutes after half-time.

Boro beaten and left bitching

Middlesbrough 0 – Birmingham City 1

A thoroughly professional performance saw Blues return from the Riverside with all three points, reversing the humiliating result at St Andrews last month.

Better, but still not good enough

Birmingham City 0 – Blackburn Rovers 2

Blues were better, if not good, in a game where they were unlucky on the balance of play not to take a point.

Absolute shit show

Birmingham City 0 – Derby County 4

There are defeats. And then there are some defeats go above and beyond in terms of embarrassment and ineptitude. This was one of those as Blues handed a thumping victory to a gleeful Derby County.

Thank you for being a Friend

Nottingham Forest 0 – Birmingham City 0

There are games which live long in the memory – cup finals won with 25-yard bicycle kicks, last-minute tap-ins to topple giants, unlikely great escape saviours deep in injury time. But, truth be told, the majority of the games are unremarkable. This was one of those, probably best filed under, ‘Instantly Forgettable’.

It all ends in tiers

Birmingham City 1 – Middlesbrough 4

And it all started so well. Blues fell to pieces allowing a Middlesbrough side to not have to do very much to take home a resounding win. Like at Cardiff the other night, most fingers will be pointed at the defence, this time with added goalkeeping blunders thrown in for good measure.

A bad ending

Cardiff City 3 – Birmingham City 2

Another game on the treadmill that is the Championship at the moment resulted in Blues falling to defeat to the odd goal in five in an eventful, roller-coaster kind of a game at the Cardiff City stadium.

Taking the biscuit

Reading 1 Birmingham City 2

Blues continued their miraculous revival as they took three points home from Berkshire. They were indebted to a fine Neil Etheridge penalty save as the ref tried his best to rob us of the victory that a very slick first half warranted.
