There’s a saying in American football, and it’s ‘Winning Cures Everything’ (7:45 on the clip).

It’s a way of being able to put all the negativity and talk that has surrounded you in the last couple of days to one side, and just leave you focusing on the victory.

That’s pretty much what this victory feels like to me. After the week that the Blues have gone through when it comes to off the pitch matters, to be able to put it all to one side for a couple of hours and just celebrate the fact that the Blues put three points on the board, it just makes things feel ever so slightly better.

Well, that’s how I feel anyway, but that feeling hasn’t exactly made its way around the Birmingham City fan base. Indeed they weren’t exactly too thrilled when the result came through, with many of them left unconvinced by a victory over a team that are at the bottom of the table.

Will the Blues get relegated this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Let’s hope for another win next week, maybe that will cheer some of these people up.

  • A welcome victory against a very poor team but not a very good performance once again and the Team Clotet picked was another job saving one in my eyes( 3 changes from the regular line up from last season )and that is why he will never succeed as Coach because he picks a Team like this when he is desperate for a result but its a Team that goes so much against his and Rens free flowing footballing principles, in other words he is a man who does not know whether to stick or twist. If I were Crowley,Bellingham, McEachran, Harding and and probably Sunjic after this result I wouldnt know whether I was coming or going to be honest.

  • Garry Monk would have done the same and actually set the team up like this every week. It was ok for him to do what it takes to get points but not Pep? Back to basics to get some points and confidence into players and then back to introducing the new style once we have a fully fir squad. I’m pleased that they are capable of winning ugly points, as sometimes its the only way, and also shows Pep is capable of getting this from his squad. Far from being a job saving result IMO.

    • The new style is going to take at least two seasons to start being effective and something had to be done to stop the slide. I ‘m sure this is about getting safe and then going for a bit of flair and also bedding a few more of the younger players in to see the season out

  • Having sat in the Luton main stand behind 3 pylons the atmosphere and view was a little different. Luton saw this as their chance to improve their home record which actually is no worse than ours. This was a Garry Monk type performance with mostly Gary Monks team. As for subs he needed the players to get as far through the game as possible to to wind the clock down in the last ten minutes. Had we already had 3 subs by the time of the red card we would have been in real trouble. Pep isn’t great but let’s give him a break when he gets it right

  • I am not complaining about us getting 3 points or the way we set up the Team, all I am saying is it not the way Pep and Ren have said they wanted to play, I am quite content for us to grind results every week but the powers that be do not want that or they would not have got rid of Rowett or Monk

  • We were doing well early in the season and the wheels fell off! Do we (or most importantly Pep) know why? We seemed to go into limbo believing that things would change – two unconvincing wins do not mean problems solved. Seems our goal now is to get enough points to cop the points deduction and stay in the Championship. May can’t come soon enough!

  • I think it will be a positive if we can see the season out without relegation or administration. however with the “news” that we are enquiring about another “marque” signing of a forward that has scored 3 goals this season and limited to 8 full games I do question where the hell this clubs owners and manager are taking us because up the table it certainly wont be! What about taking proven goal scorers that show a better return from our own leagues(I would be happy with the Peterborough guys, as the likes of real quality championship players are beyond our finances and/or Ren and Clotet’s capabilities of indentifying the ‘real gems” we need)
