I said on Friday that you knew there were problems at the club when the word ‘relegation’ was officially being talked about by the manager and media.

Well now I think we’ve entered stage two of those problems, as we have our first mention of a ‘six-pointer’ of the season, and it’s not something that has gone down particularly well with the Birmingham City fans.

Speaking after the victory over Luton Town on Saturday, Blues boss Pep Clotet described the result as “a six-pointer of a match because it puts a bigger gap between us and the relegation spots and set us back on track.”

However, there were a large number of fan who weren’t happy to see the game described in such a way, with many of them saying that it was down to the boss that the club have managed to get themselves in such a position to start with.

Will the Blues get relegated this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hopefully this will be the only time it gets mentioned this season, but for those of you who are pessimistic, looking at the table and our upcoming fixtures, the next ‘six-pointer’ will arguably be against Barnsley in February. Although if it doesn’t get referred to as such, you’ll know we’re moving in the right direction.

  • Matthew Baldwin Doom mongering again I see. Do you feel it’s your lifes mission to sift through all the most negative comments on social media?. We are 8 points off a relegation place, we’re also only 10 points off the play offs, not a lot of difference is there?. I’m not defending Clotet but we’ve had the heart ripped out of defence and we have a few key players coming back from injury which can only be good. If we’re struggling by Easter then it’s time to panic but with 19 games left and 57 points to play for I think some people are being just a bit too negative.

    • The slide was on before the injuries – problem is that players recruited (Gimenez et al) have not developed and the goalkeeper issue.

  • Sifting through Twitter dross again. I can accept that some people only have bad things going on in their lives and only see the negative in everything, but on a personal basis I leave them to wallow in their misery rather than encourage them to share it.
    Perhaps we could have Ramos as manager.
