They Think It’s All Over…..

Rotherham United v Birmingham City

In Off The Post

The following article has been written by one of our Trust members.  Would you like to contribute a discussion point of your own about Birmingham City Football Club?  If so, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Those iconic words ‘they think it’s all over’ can never in a million years ever be directed at Birmingham City, and true supporters will know exactly that. To end this season in a calm, relaxed manner watching other teams battle it out just isn’t going to happen. After a rather magical start under Lee Bowyer earning hard valuable points, supporters could be forgiven for dreaming of a stress free April. Far from it. Twists and turns a plenty with results not making much sense – that is my prediction.

Confidence is high in B9 at the moment and why not, with players and supporters looking forward to the next game. How often has that been the case this season? A refreshing turnaround. What therefore is the case for caution at a time when we are in a decent place both results wise and confidence? Easy answer. We are Blues.

Rotherham on Sunday is definitely a game where we want to pick up points, at least one, and on paper we should especially after they play us after a four game sequence in the space of eight days. But nothing I feel can Blues take for granted even against tired and maybe weary opposition such as Rotherham. Survival is within touching distance for Bowyer at the moment and I have no doubt he is the ‘messiah’ that has been desperately needed, both at St.Andrews and Wast Hills.

When this season finally reveals who stays in the Championship and who doesn’t, there will be an air of relief all round. From exasperation, frustration and sheer anger under the previous ‘so called back room’, we are in a nice bubble now of genuine hope and belief under Bowyer’s men. However, twists and turns should be expected over the next five games, including strange results which will alter the Championship table in a flash, making mathematicians of us all.

But above all, we are Blues. And we must never think it is all over……

    We all have nerves about this game. Important we keep it in perspective- we are playing Rotherham not Real Madrid. My main concern is that we keep eleven players on the pitch and not succumb to an unnecessary sending off, which often happens in these type of games. Williammorgan is spot on with his advice and if I were Lee Bowyer I would plaster his words all over the dressing room.

    This is probably going to be our toughest game of the season so far, in truth we need three points and can’t afford to take none. All Blues fans will be on the edge of our seats between twelve and two today, the team will need to be at their best and we fans will be right there with them, fighting for every tackle and taking every shot. Everyone will be drained by the middle of this afternoon.

    A month ago we were 3 points above Rotherham who had 4 games in hand with 4 top 6 teams to play. We were more or less relegated according to the bookies. The fight we have shown under Bowyer has been tremendous. We will win today and a lot of buttocks will unclench in a collective sigh of relief. KRO.

    It wasn’t easy and it certainly wasn’t pretty but it was three points, well done lads and well done Lee, you’ve installed some pride back in the Birmingham faithful
