What a way to score your first goal for the club.
I said when Jeremie Bela first joined that there was going to be an awful lot of pressure on his shoulders to deliver when it mattered, and boy did it matter yesterday.
Birmingham picked up three points away from home against Reading in a nail-biting game, but it was the Blues’ second goal that stole the majority of the headlines, as Bela struck a sumptuous free-kick from distance to put the visitors 2-1 ahead.
So it was only natural that the Birmingham fans would want to pile on the love for their new man, and they couldn’t contain themselves, taking to social media to express their joy over the strike. The only problem is, that he’s set himself a bit of a high standard after that. It’s not good just scoring tap-ins for the rest of your time at the club, the fans will be expecting a little more entertainment.
WHAT A BALLER

How many goals will Bela score this season?
1 - 5
5 - 10
But I’m sure they’ll forgive you if you can score 30 or so tap-ins a season.
