The defeat to QPR was surprising, not only because we were so poor, but because we were facing a team that had so little to play for.

Garry Monk’s explanation for the performance was that the players showed “fear” and weren’t willing to take the responsibility for their performances.

Many Birmingham fans reacting to the display on Twitter shared the manager’s sentiments:

Verdict:

There was a lot wrong with the performance. The home side were clearly playing with a sense of freedom, while ours looked to be weighed down by the pressure.

Nothing before the game indicated that we would put in such a limp display, but that’s how football goes sometimes. We just didn’t show enough fight.

That will have to change next weekend against Fulham. Our fate is still in our own hands, but we are making it hard for ourselves. Once again, it comes down to a tense final day drama.
