What is it with Birmingham City trying to rile up all the managers in this division?

First off we had Garry Monk and his comments about Pep Clotet, then Leo Percovich had his run in with the coaching staff during and after the game at Middlesbrough. Now we’ve got the manager of Barnsley Gerhard Struber having a pop at the club for the way the team played on Tuesday night.

Speaking after the game, Struber seemed to take issue with the Blues’ apparent route one style of play and how it disrupted his own side:

“It was not a magic opponent, they only played long balls, they had no style on the ball. All they were very good at was the organisation of the defence. We lost our focus, we lost our concentration. It was so simple for the opponent to win against us. This is a frustrating situation for me.”

It may just have been sour grapes, but it was certainly enough to rile up the Bluenoses on Twitter, who laughed off the German’s comments and rubbed in their victory.

Is Jude Bellingham our most important player?

Yes

Yes

No

No

I guess we can probably count it as Barnsley 0 – 2 Birmingham City now.
