These Birmingham City fans haven’t taken too kindly to some team news ahead of tonight’s game with Leicester City.

It was revealed by Pep Clotet in his press conference yesterday that 16-year-old Jude Bellingham will not be featuring in tonight’s game as he is being ‘rested’ whilst he recovers from fatigue and a few knocks that he has picked up in recent weeks.

Now resting players is nothing new for Pep Clotet, indeed he made seven changes for the 3rd Round clash against Blackburn Rovers back in January, but this change seemed liked going a step too far for a large section of the St Andrew’s faithful.

Was Pep right to rest Jude for the game tonight?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Indeed, there were many of them, like me, who felt that if he were going to be rested at some point this season, then that rest should have occurred around the game tonight at the King Power rather than during it, with some feeling they were being let down by booking tickets to the game and now feeling like they’re gonna miss out with his absence.

Let’s just hope the gamble pays off.
