Well, it would be a little too much to give all the praise to Scott Hogan.
Admittedly he does deserve it for the start he’s made in a Blues shirt, but he hasn’t done it all by himself, he does need people to set the goals up for him. And the person who set the goal up the winner last night has certainly come in for a lot of praise from the fans. Not for the first time this season, and certainly not for the last.
Jude Bellingham was in the headlines once again for the Blues as he worked his socks off to help them pick up the win against Barnsley, and that was demonstrated in no better way than with his efforts for the winning goal.
However, Blues fans weren’t just content with talking about what he did on the night. They used his efforts at Oakwell as a microcosm for just how special a player he is, with many of them talking about what the future holds for him, whether it be in B9 or at another club.
Calling it now Bellingham is the next Steven Gerrard that’s how highly I rate him.
He’s like this now but think in 4 years time when he’s still only 20. £30 million would be a steal for him #bcfc https://t.co/zbJTCRxyd2

Wouldn’t it be a real statement of intent for the club to show patience, give him a 6 yr contract in the summer and keep him until he’s 19 or 20. We’d get 50 or 60 mil then.

There is no way blues should let this kid go for less than 40M if we’ve got any ambition he’s a bluenose let’s hope if he does go he’s got a say in it 💙✊

Honestly have to enjoy Bellingham every single second that he’s here because he’s going on to become big big player for a big big team, the kid is not only talented but his hard work is unbelievable as well and he’s only 16 is just mind blowing #bcfc

Bellingham and Pedersen were superb tonight. Hogan got the goal with an amazing finish, but the overall game of Jude and Peds were outstanding. Putting in a proper Birmingham City performance. #bcfc

Have been watching blues every week for 15 years and seen a lot of teams and lot of great young players play against blues. But I’ve never seen a player show the poise and football IQ at such a tender age as Jude Bellingham is doing. He is going to be an absolute monster #BCFC

Is Jude Bellingham our most important player?
It really does look like the hype train for the young lad isn’t going to stop any time soon.
