    Hopefully it's now been confirmed as arse gravy :laugh:. An important win yesterday which will hopefully settle us down and get us pushing forward again. We won't trouble the playoffs, we don't score anywhere near enough goals but we need to try and finish the season as strongly as possible and try to find a system that works well because we haven't really been cohesive all season even when we were getting the results early on.

    Karanka should have been sacked the moment the owners saw the team sheet and that he’d selected one up front at home to Wycombe.

    #shambles.

    Ive taken a strange liking to him, he seems to be intentionally seeing how far he can push his employers before they sack him, I’ve done it in previous employment, it’s a decent laugh tbf

    It is an odd one with Karanka based on his time here I expected much better things from him. I know you are being slightly tongue in cheek Trev but it really does seem he doesn't give a damn there

    Who in your club sanctioned £6million + for Zohore? I'm worried we might actually spend big on him in the summer just because there is no one else.

    Yes Mel Morris the Derby owner knows him quite well, came to us, to help out our interim manager Wassell a few seasons back, got us in the play offs as well, lost to Hull City in the end though.

    Agree mate, think Nigel Clough would do a good job, he would deffo steady the boat and get u competitive in this league, doing a good job at Mansfield, did well at Burton, Derby on a very low budget, and Sheff United, i think he is definitely worth a try.

    Massive three points. After the performances against Forest & Watford. (Even Cardiff, according to the stats). I thought that once we get to March, the points will come.

    I didn't expect us to get anything today and thought this was a very tough month.

    Massive!

    Big 3 points for us today - got away with one with the penalty save. Feeling more confident after our form since January... but you can never be sure with Forest (see last season :laugh:)

    If I was a betting man, I'd have put my house on it.
    If ever a team is struggling and desperate for a win and they play us they get it.
    Wycombe's 1st win in the Championship, Stoke midweek on a long streak without a win, you Today, I'm pretty certain Preston hadn't won at home for a while until they played us, just 4 off the top of my head, we never fail to end long stretches without a win.
    It's just what we do.

    You're a lot better than your form or league position suggest. I think you'll be fine now. Genuinely impressive today.

    You're Birmingham. You always seem to find a way out of it and probably will again this season :laugh:

    This is something that we usually say. Whenever a team is on an awful run, the Stoke City charity bus rolls into town. Nice to see it's not just us that do it. And nice to be the beneficiaries for a change too.
