The international break has brought our season to a temporary halt, but we’re looking forward to the return of Championship action in a few days time.
There is still plenty online that is getting Blues fans talking, though, and the latest topic of debate has come straight from the official Birmingham City Twitter account.
A video was recently shared on the account revealing an interview with Gary Gardner, who is currently on loan with us from Aston Villa. In the clip, he’s revealed that it’s his dream to play with his brother Craig Gardner, who is also currently at St Andrew’s.
Gary Gardner – “As a boy I dreamed to play with my brother and to do it for Blues in a professional game would be a really proud moment for the family.”

The pair have a connection beyond just being siblings, importantly. They’re both products of the Aston Villa academy, yet they now find themselves at Birmingham. Whilst Gary is only on loan, his brother is here permanently. Having two players from the same family in the same team is rare, but both certainly have a chance of featuring together before the season is out.
Significantly, their Villa connection has got many Blues talking online, and it’s fair to say that they’d be pretty pleased if he the Gardener’s were able to achieve their dream with us – even if only to see how Villa fans would react!
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
The villa fans are going to be so triggered by this.
