Sometimes you’ve got to look beyond a manager. Sometimes the players need to take responsibility. And tonight’s defeat against Reading at St. Andrews wasn’t Zola’s doing. Lukas Jutkiewicz missed an absolute sitter – not for the first time – after a delicious ball across goal by Kerim Frei. It was harder to miss and Jutkiewicz fluffed his chance.

Predictably, Reading, who were not superior to Blues, took a chance and the three points to take Zola’s winless run into double figures.

Between the penalty areas, Blues didn’t do much wrong. The football was sharp and snappy and, on the whole, well worked. But I’m starting to sound like a broken record that shows no sign of stopping.

I can’t think of much else to write so I’ll say goodnight.
