Well, so much for ‘fortress St Andrew’s’.
The Blues came into the game with one of the better home records in the division, only losing two games. That didn’t count for much though on Wednesday night, as they put in a rather uninspiring performance as they lost 2-0 to Queens Park Rangers. Despite dominating in terms of possession and total shots, there wasn’t a lot of end product for Pep Clotet’s men as they failed to break through a stubborn QPR defence.
Whilst the attack was certainly a real negative for the team, there was plenty of blame to go around, and indeed Blues fans couldn’t quite pick out which person should get the most blame for the defeat.
The result leaves Birmingham City eleven points clear of the relegation zone, so it’s not as if it should all be doom and gloom just yet, but you should try telling that to these fans as they were left incredibly angry as the result came in.
Harley Dean and Wes Harding are appalling. Mags is awful and our only good player was Bela and he was subbed off for bailey who ran round like a chicken with his head cut off.

Terrible. Jukey hasn’t a clue. Totally missing up front. Why does he insist on playing him?

Second half was a joke. Some terrible early second half subs from pep. Completely took our rhythm away by bring Jude and bela off. But can’t really blame him as no body looked like they wanted it. Also a terrible atmosphere again, what happened to getting behind the players

Most lacklustre performance all season, West Brom will have a field day. Just like last season tonight without Crowley pulling the strings

Game ruined with poor substitutions

Maghoma ever plays again I want a refund and I’m not even joking

Should Odin Bailey have been given more game time?
No worries, only second-placed West Bromwich Albion to come next, no big deal.
