Well we’ve got to find something to do I suppose.
As it’s the international break, why don’t we have a couple of debates? It’ll give us a little bit of a break from the discussion about whether or not Pep Clotet is the right man for the job, or if Lee Camp deserves his place in goal. At the very least it gives me a break from it anyway.
Here’s the first one. @WeAreBirmingham posed the question on Twitter today who was the better right back: Stephen Carr or Maxime Colin? Both men have had fine careers in B9, although there is one thing that tips the balance in favour of the Irishman, that being the fact he was captain when the Blues lifted the League Cup at Wembley in 2011.
And that’s how the result played out on Twitter, with the 43-year-old taking victory over the Frenchman, both in votes and in comments.
We have had some great right backs over the years, Colin is good, I rate him but Carr was probably one of the best & cup winner plus he hates villa ???? ???? ???? ????

I’m always up for debates about “greatest player” etc (mine being Trevor Francis). But this binary choice is unfair. Both are good players. Carr legend for lifting the cup, bombing down the wing and the respect he paid to the North Stand. Colin classy and talented.

I like Colin but assume those voting for him never saw Carr play at Premier League level. A blues legend for his gesture at Vile Park.

Stevie Carr all day everyday!

One deserves a statue, the other is a decent player. No contest at all.

And I must say, as much as I admire Colin for his contributions to the Blues so far, unless he wins a trophy much like Carr did at Wembley, then I’m afraid that there’s only ever going to be one winner in this debate.
