Birmingham v Swansea tonight

Birmingham City will be short of options in midfield

Craig Gardner is suspended after his red card at Middlesbrough, David Davis has an ankle injury and Cheikh Ndoye has been loaned to French side Angers.

Could do with Monk's team winning this game

Monk first Championship manager to be sacked?

There are only about eight very good or decent managers in the championship this season, the rest are average, poor or journeyman types. I would class Bielsa an upgrade on them all, this time is a real opportunity for us to succeed

Jaap Stam would be proud of Swansea's display tonight - after 24 minutes they have had 70% of possession but not a single shot (compared to Brum's 30% and 9 shots).

Like this comment off a Swansea forum

Doesn't seem we should fear the Swans

Swansea were shite, Birmingham were toothless otherwise then win.

Most pleasing was how us and Swansea both play a similar style, but Swansea had to revert to hoofs, they were poor playing it out.

We on the other had move the ball so much faster with much more movement so the player on the ball has an option :love:

In fairness we all knew QPR were awful as we even beat them with PH in charge.

I gave Frankie until Christmas but his departure maybe even more premature at this rate

If McClaren had been appointed at Leeds I would seriously have considered not purchasing a season-ticket. Fifteen years of pain with more to come would have been too much to bare :chair:
