Looks like Pep Clotet wasn’t totally convinced by what he saw on Saturday.

Despite getting rave reviews by some people, it looks as if Dan Crowley’s 94% pass completion percentage wasn’t enough to save him from the chop tonight as the former Arsenal man found himself amongst the substitutes tonight, something that didn’t go unnoticed amongst the Birmingham supporters.

The other person missing from not just the starting eleven, but the entire eighteen man squad was right-back Maxime Colin. Whilst a lot of fans came to the conclusion that he might be injured, Clotet didn’t mention him as one of the injured men when he previewed the game for, so perhaps there was something more to it.

With Clotet saying in the preview that he is still adapting his team, we should have expected some changes, however I don’t think we were expecting those two to be the unfortunate ones.

Those missing players aside, a lot of Birmingham fans seemed pretty pleased with that line-up overall.

Whether or not this is the team of the future, or just a team for one game, we shall have to wait and see.

  • These two teams are getting the Championship a bad name especially Blues. That first half was the worst iv seen in a long time.

    • Any comment on the second half? You should be supporting the mob at Villa Park if you can’t be more supportive than this.

  • 6 shots on target to blues ….one shot on target Barnsley’s…PERFECT CLOTET AND CO ..perhaps 5x3x2 is the allround set up ….come on SUPER BLUES ….

  • Noted how the Blues changed tempo and aggression once we got behind them. Scored two and could have had more.
    Prior to the two minutes applause for the Nose who passed away all the players could hear was moaning and slagging off which rubbed off into a flat and low confidence performance on the pitch, but once the passion and encouragement came from the fans it was like Blues of old.

    So stop all the negatives and get behind the Boys in Royal Blue. Monk used it to good effect and the proof is there that it works. Maybe it will be Montero who gets the fans at it but he cant play every game, so as far as I’m concerned its down to us fans to give the team a lift.

  • why does anyone read this guys blog , no way he can support Blues . The most negative so called Blues fan ever .
    One day he might just have something good to say about the club .clueless

  • Very interesting

    No headlines from you today

    Is it because we have won?

    If we had lost we would of had numerous negative headlines.

    I am surprised you haven’t mentioned Camps two clean sheets out of 4 mind you that’s good news.

    • They’re on their way don’t worry. Just busy formalising a petition to get Giminez’s goal as a late entry for the Puscas award. There’s a lot of red tape to go with those things

      • Obviously going through life with a glass half empty attitude. We need writers with passion and educated opinions who seek to motivate supporters who in turn motivate the players. I’d hate to think of you doing a team talk. Maybe think about formalising an application for some anti depressants. Then maybe we would get some positive articles, but then again you also need to know about people and football to see the positives and get your glass half full, so maybe just give it up altogether .
