Birmingham City (a): What Happened?
Birmingham City away is always a difficult game. A really horrible one to start the season with. Especially against this particular Blues side, still reeling from the recently lifted transfer embargo they’ve been operating under this summer. But it was a game City would be targeting as a win at any other stage of the season. The first game often throws up interesting results (see Norwich 1 Colchester 7) so to get away with a draw is no bad thing. Failing to defend corners effectively certainly is though. Those errors must be cut out if City are to do anything this year. This time though, Onel Hernandez was on hand to rescue the Canaries.
Seven months ago, City signed three players on the same day. While there were signs of potential, none did particularly much to impress last season. But in the sun at St
Should Farke have started with this more attacking side? Possibly. Having a strong bench has it’s benefits though as proven here. Fans wanting more attacking football also got their wish. More crosses. Longer passes. Goals.
We also got the inability to defend crosses into or own box…
So, a good point. Some encouraging signs. And a last minute goal to keep Freddy and Lee happy…
Reasons to be optimistic? Strap in Canaries fans, this looks like being a season which is exhausting, woop inducing and maybe, just maybe, absolutely incredible.
