These Blues fans have been left very content indeed after a rather quirky evening on social media last night.

I’ll tell you what, there are worse ways to spend an evening, I thoroughly enjoyed this, and not just because the virtual Blues won, but because it was a little slice of football whilst we have to do without the real thing.

Birmingham City are through to the next round of the EFL Football Manager Cup after Lee Camp guided them to a 4-1 victory over Swindon Town.

It was a very exciting game, in which the Scott Hogan scored a 93rd minute equaliser before dominating in extra-time to seal the win.

Are you struggling to cope with there being no real football on?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And Blues fans on social media, potentially because it’s the closest we’ll get to real football for a while, treated it just like a real game and were very enthusiastic as the game went on and the result came through.

I wonder if we’ll get some sort of trophy at the end if we win the whole thing, either way I’m very much looking forward to the next round.

  • I understand people are bored but use this time constructively and do something worthwhile like learn something, home tutor your children, do some DIY.

    • I concur, but when you’ve done all that and need some time to relax, then the Football Manager Cup is a nice little distraction (not being paid to say that, genuine opinion, it was great viewing).

  • Funny, I remember a game in the seventies, at St. Andrew’s against Swindon when Glen Hoddle was their manager of Swindon. Swindon won 6 -4 , after Blues had been ahead 4-1 in the second half. Maybe this is payback time !!
