It has been rather a bizarre season with ups and downs all season long. I try not to use cliches but in this case it has really been a season of two halves; the Gary Rowett era and the Gianfranco Zola mess. But sometimes it is the players that need to step up and be counted. We did also do a little bit of business in January with different line ups being presented each week due to formation changed, injuries and suspensions. Therefore the list of potential players to choose from is greatly reduced.

Each individual person rates players in different ways. You can see it on social media every week, where fans argue endlessly in order to gain absolutely nothing. This is the case with choosing a player of the season. I have personally chose a player who continued even when the chips were down and actually tried to create something when others didn’t look like they wanted to.

Player of the season – Che Adams.

For me, Che Adams has been one of the best signings for Birmingham City in the modern era. At such a young age, he has made a massive impact. The main thing that I think has cost us points in recent games is the fear of attacking and taking on players. Zola seemed to want to play a more passing style of play in terms of keeping the ball but unfortunately this means a severe lack of attacking threat. Yes, I know maybe the finishing wasn’t as it should be and certainly we created chances that just weren’t taken but I do think that Adams was one of the only ones to try and get at the oppositions defense.

He has scored some wonderful goals in particular his volleys and I think when those around him have lost their heads, he has been fairly clinical. He has had 21 shots on target with 6 goals and considering he has had to make 12 appearances from the bench, this isn’t bad going from the youngster. I am disappointed that Zola didn’t give Adams a chance as I think that he would have helped pick up points in the second half of the season.
