The following article has been written by one of our Trust members.  They are the opinions of that person and not necessarily those of Blues Trust.  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.

With confidence building and real belief emerging, Blues next game against Fulham is eagerly awaited. With a healthy league position and players performances consistently good, what is there not to like about life in B9?  Add the Deeney factor and it is easy to see why eyebrows are being raised as to what supporters feel about our chances in the Championship this season.

Fulham are obviously a class act despite their shock defeat by Blackpool last Saturday, and this next game is going to be a real test. But what pleases me most is the fact that we are consistently playing the way Lee Bowyer demands, with performances by every player reaching a high standard.  Hopefully, therefore, such consistency means not having to raise the bar or find an extra gear against certain teams like Fulham.

Again, what I like about Bowyer’s approach to games is the simplicity of it all.  Players and supporters are understanding the logic. Against Derby we stood out as a very powerful team, with strengths all over the pitch. And our bench looked more than decent, especially the sight of Troy Deeney and Chuks Aneke.

Lee Bowyer may well tweak things in a minor way against Fulham, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see Jutkiewicz give way to Deeney from the start with aerial balls kept to a minimum. So, for me it would be an attacking threat in the form of Deeney and Hogan, with Chong and Bela completing the offensive quartet.

Fulham and Peterborough this week are fixtures to be looked forward to, and why not?  With 6 points on offer I sense a determination within the camp to take the maximum.

    FULHAM will be tricky. Point for me. Onwards and upwards

    Not nice scoreline last night but kept pushing until final whistle. Will win more than lose. FULHAM had that calmness and quality whereas we had to work very hard for any form of reward. That’s where we are.
