I hope he doesn’t think all games are going to be like this.

So in a week in which we added a new goalkeeper in the form of Neil Etheridge, and just a few weeks on from us signing Andres Prieto, it turns out we didn’t really need either of them, we had our goalkeeper solution right in front of us the whole time.

Where will Blues finish this season?

I’m kidding of course, but seriously what a performance from young Zach Jeacock in his Championship debut as Blues managed to get three points against Brentford at St Andrew’s. The visitors were restricted to just four shots on target throughout the contest, but the 19-year-old didn’t look out of place, with The Times going so far as calling his performance ‘stellar’.

The problem now of course will be maintaining his place in the team, and when/if he does, keeping things to that level, as BBC West Midlands’ Richard Wilford summarised on social media after the game:

It certainly might throw a bit of a spanner into the works for Aitor Karanka if he does keep this up going forward. All I know is that the battle for the number one spot at St Andrew’s just got a lot more interesting.

  • Where does this leave Prieto? Has to be number 3 keeper! Already comments that Sanchez is another Jota. As they say in the song “When will they ever learn!!” Rather have Div 1 or Div 2 UK players who are more easily adapted to Championship.
