Two league wins against Huddersfield and Preston North End in the space of four days has certainly brought about much-needed cheer at Birmingham City.
Aitor Karanka and the squad appear to be on the right lines, particularly with the rotation of players and the importance of whoever plays knowing their roles. Simple but vital when the overall target is to eventually hold down a top-six slot in the Championship table.
This week, with two home games against Wycombe and Bournemouth, will no doubt go some way as to the realisation of our genuine hopes for success – four points would be excellent in my opinion. This dreadful year, when football has been ripped apart and supporters are only able to watch their teams from television cameras, has somehow retained a keen interest and therefore a much-needed boost.
Talking points, debates and controversial decisions on the pitch, somehow appears right, which may sound odd – but needed if you get my point. Blues, as we know, are a full-time talking point and lasts most of our living years with heartaches and joys, coupled with anger at times and the eventual forgiveness.
Recently I was told I needed a new hobby as Birmingham City rarely supplied me with much happiness and the point made was logical and understandable. Although there is no sensible answer as to why we endure so many lows, it is best to portray the feeling that we have just experienced in back to back wins and maybe, just maybe, the possibility of a further two this week.
Wishful thinking and hopeless faith in being a Blues supporter? Spot on.
